As I said, it's an upgrade, but I don't think it's that huge of an upgrade. Ference is pretty much a journeyman defenseman and average player, but his intangibles and leadership are obviously both traits the Oilers could use. Hockey wise, I don't think he's that good. Reminds me a lot of Nick Schultz before he came to the Oilers.

Still holding out hope for Coburn trade.
