MSP is a big, fast, young, skilled 2 way forward who had the potential to significantly out-perform his next contract. We have almost zero of those guys and team's go nowhere without them.

Top 6 was skilled and too small and now is more skilled and smaller - WTF? - they will get killed in their new division by big teams like LAK, SJS who will simply pound that top 6 into ineffectiveness just like the last 10 games of the 2013 season. They will do fine until it get serious then fold like a wet paper bag.

Bottom 6 is arguably worse than last year. Added Gordon which is good but he's an overpay and the rest is junk, hope and dreams. No out-performers at all.

So short-term it's a wash but longterm MSP is exactly the type of player that the Oilers should have been looking to add - not deal for another smaller, skill player.
