Yes... he's been solid... and Byfuglien is basically the biggest guy in the NHL (outside of John Scott who is useless) so if he is outmatched just against the giants but plays well against the rest... he's going to be a solid asset in the top 9 for the Oilers. To me he's looking like he could be exactly what we wanted and hoped Eager would bring to the team.

Now if only Eager could get back to that level as well... the Oilers would have 2 great options for size/speed/grit in the bottom 6 which would make the lineup a hell of a lot more balanced and hard to play against than we've seen the last few years.
