We trade a good young player for a better young player.
We have zero potential contracts that can be considered potential out-performs - well maybe Yak but that's a stretch given his dollars as a #1. Our top 6 is skilled and smaller and our bottom six is junk to be kind with the exception of Gordon who is overpaid. Feel free to be happy but we'll talk again in March when teams with size/skill through the lineup eat the Oilers for breakfast. Playing the Oilers is easy as you just hit them and take away their ice. Perron does nothing to change this and the bottom six is a disaster. People are going to feel really happy about Gordon when he goes a month without scoring playing with guys like Brown, Smyth, Jones etc etc
Oilers top 6 = skill with no size
Oiler bottom 6 = no skill
Not a recipe for success but hey it's blue sky, skittles and unicorns season so enjoy.
