This trade is a very good one for the Oilers. I laugh at those like Terry Jones who think it isn't merely because Perron isn't the powerforward that everyone was hoping we would land. A trade doesn't have to be a home run to be a great move, and by all accounts, Perron is better than Paajarvi in just about everything except skating and age. The move also has huge potential to blossom into a home run. Our top-6 is now constructed such that we have two playmaking centers flanked on both sides by absolute snipers. It's the perfect storm for both the playmakers and the snipers to make their hay, and assuming that the team's skill is enough to make up for physical imbalances, it could be one of the best top-6es in the league.

That being said, it would be nice to find a way to add some size to the lineup. Until that happens though, I'm more than happy to upgrade it in other ways.
