It's okay, everyone's allowed to be a rube once and a while. Heck, I even caught myself listening to Tencer at the 1st intermission.

I guess physically weak, puck moving defensemen are no longer the new 'black' for Team Spin Cycle. The team went on a binge fest acquisition for this type of player post lockout and now with a new Sheriff in town is beginning to purge them.

Coming on the heels of Grebs for lottery pick, this moves out a somewhat similar skill set albeit borderline prospect versus Russian national teamer. We get a big player and ... err... a ... big body presence ... and ... err... got nothin' else.

Nothing to see here but evidence that Tambellini has seen his shadow and at least has shown himself at least briefly. Bold big promises. Waiting ... waiting ... waiting ... waiting for the action to accompany the blustering and postering since firing MacT.

On the trade: Redundant AHL defenseman for a depth AHL forward. From what I understand, this guy is NOT an enforcer. Boston gets the best player, so I guess they win - but we really have too many prospect defenders in need of minutes on the farm and I'd rather see Wild go than Motin, Plante or Chorney.
Dont confuse HF Board posters with Edmonton Oiler fans

Not knowing much about either player I've got to go by the HF rankings... they have Wild rated as a 6.5D dman prospect and Marquardt is rated as a 6D Left Winger. If those ratings are remotely accurate then neither player will likely be more than a peripheral NHL player at best.

Marquardt slots in as the 9th highest ranked LW prospect for the Oilers and Wild is now the 8th highest D prospect for the Bruins.

Not sure who "won" the trade but by those rankings it looks pretty even.

Looking at the prospects for the Oilers... they look weak on right wing with only 3 notable prospects while they have 10 notables on LW. Defense is also looking thin with just 8 notables... but with Grebeshkov gone and constant injuries on the Oilers D... several of those prospects are now in the NHL.

Other than in goal which should be by far the highest priority for the Oilers right now(Halak please)... they definitely need to shore up their depth on defense.

As much as some people liked Cody Wild, there was no way that he was ever going to make the Edmonton Oilers roster as a solid contributor. I would rather have Marquardt on our AHL team over Wild in the AHL.

I mean 6'3" hitting machines that have once scored back to back 40 goal seasons in the QMJHL are at least somewhat interesting. If he can turn into the JFJ of the AHL then I think that is all that we can ask for.

AHL for AHL. Maybe a call up if we get owned. Can't complain myself. Maybe Springfield will oh well tough luck. Season over anyways for like all of Edmonton.

If anyone would be a good judge of talent it would be Springfield Falcon Head Coach Rob Daum,i imagine he let Edmonton know who wasn't performing up to potential and who was expendable.
