Again Eager, Sutton, Hordi, Brown have been underwhelming here. Ference isn't imo that great a D. His premium calling card is playing with grit and letting everybody know he's there. Lb per LB Andrew is a whole bunch of nasty. But I thought he was losing battles a lot in the playoffs this year. Didn't look particularly strong to me.
Interesting that you vehemently defended Gilbert in previous threads but hate on Ference's play, yet one is bought out and available and the other is overpaid to purchase his services.
Also interesting that Regher is your most hated ex-Flame. I hated him as well but always wished he was an Oiler. I was hoping he'd become a UFA this summer, and was disappointed when he re-signed before becoming unrestricted. You need those types of players on your team. You have to make it difficult in your own end for the other guys.
