This trade allowed you guys to lock up your core. It was never a Paajarvi vs Perron deal. It got you guys a 1.2M 3rd line LWer + 2nd round pick + money for B.Morrow + 1M to go towards resigning of AP.
As Oiler fans we were hoping for someone with size in top 6 to offset all the midgets we have but were not able to land the Clarkson'ish player. Perron deal seemed like a plan B \ an afterthought.. Seems to be working out for EDM with some of our skilled guys out of the lineup and Hall playing C.
Hopefully he works out for EDM when the real season starts.
