He was behind Buff, Enström, Bogosian, Stapleton, and sometimes Burmistrov, Hainsey, Flood and Miettinen on the PP point spot for us...

Our PP was piss poor with or without Oduya in the lineup. For a while he was the only player who could hit the net from the blueline. Then in typical Quenneville fashion, he managed to regress in only half a season here. Then in typical Bowman fashion, he's re-signed at an unreasonable cap hit. And people complained about Tallon.

Someone on the Hawks board put it best: At least Tallon overpaid talented players.

Oduya signing is probably final nail that shuts the Hawks window to contend

Absolutely pathetic player and an even worse contract

Oduya has six years NHL experience, Finger had 1.25 when he got signed to his contract....

I guess if you're comparing Finger in the AHL to Oduya in the NHL you might have a point.

That's nice. He isn't in New Jersey anymore. He's not the same guy that you watched, clearly.

He is quite weak in his own end of the ice... very soft and is a turnover machine. He's a decent puckmover and has a reasonably good shot. His offensive instincts are fairly good.
Hence, he is weaker defensively than he is offensively. It's irrelevant if that wasn't the case in New Jersey - it is now, and us Hawk fans know our team better than you do

Ooof. Figured it would have to be under 3 to make Hawks fans even neutral on the deal.

Hjalmarsson to Buffalo for the 21st, plz and thanks =]

Oh dear lord... he's on the same level as Campoli as far as brainfarts go. I thought the Thrashers were crazy to sign him for that much but I guess so are the Hawks.

We haven't been in cap hell since Campbell was shown the door. But slowly Blowman is letting it creep back with Frolik, Montador, and Oduya signings. Mediocre players being paid way, way too much.

They've been out of that since last summer when Campbell was traded.

Strictly in terms of the cap situation, the Hawks are actually in better shape than the majority of big-spending teams around the league.
Unfortunately said big-spending teams are for the most part better teams than Chicago.

Oduya-3.375
Frolik-2.5

Instead

Olsen-.9
Shaw.9

I like the bottom 2 better!

The Hawks fans in this thread are ludicrous. Oduya has a strong history of being a solid second pairing puck mover and they seem to think that one playoff series somehow completely dispels that.
I am going to have to disagree with you.

Oduya is a 5-6 D man. He wasn't in the top 4 of the Jets, and the Jets were not in the playoffs.

He certainly shouldn't be in the top 4 of a team like Chicago which is not only a playoff team, but a team that should be contending (with a few additions).

I would agree with the Hawks fans that aren't too happy about this signing. Oduya on their 3rd pair at cheap hit would be ok. Oduya on the 2nd pair eating up 3.375 is not what I would want if I was a fan of a team that I thought was a cup contender.

Oduya should not be on the 2nd pair of a cup contender.

I would lol at this normally but this is sadly the price of veteran Dmen these days.

I would've hoped to explore more options as a Hawks fan, sign a cheaper bottom pairing dman and try to spend this money on a 3rd or 4th guy like Bryan Allen (bit more reliable).
