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.
Dude we traded one player for another, you analyzing it based on how it affects our top six in relation to our bottom six is absolutely bonkers.

We trade a good young player for a better young player.
