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.
The difference I see is St Louis got a guy that fits their system and Edmonton just got the most talented player they could get....although I don't see how his presence puts Edmonton closer to being a playoff team. Seems the deficits on that roster are unchanged. (No knock on Perron, I just don't see this as a guy they were targeting trading for. The offer was too good to pass up.)
