He doesn't really play D at all, to be honest. He just tries to throw hits and ends up missing and being out of position 95% of the time.

Plays both sides.

With such a condensed schedule, it might be prudent to hang on to Teddy.

he is way more comfortable on the left side but Dallas played him on the right side a fair amount of the time.

I like it... I like it a lot. I would safely say Fistric takes the 6th defenseman spot, Peckham takes 7th. They are similar players so they can easily swap out for a few games every once in a while, but preferably leaving Fistric in for as many games as possible. This also pushes Potter out (maybe) down to OKC once the season starts.

Always knew Fistric as a guy who can deliver huge hits, hopefully that will continue, especially now that Sutton is pretty much on his way out.

So why is this such a good trade? Not being arrogant. I know nothing about Fistric and he hasn't seemed to log a full season yet. Numbers also aren't flashy, but they don't paint the picture.

You act like hitting, blocking shots, and not coughing up the puck every shift is not part of defense....your hate for the Oilers is quite legendary.
He's going to be a 3rd pairing defenseman and that is all. Maybe he returns to form playing at home maybe not. We gave up a 3rd round pick for him. Woop dee doo

In before why didn't MG do this trade????

Oilers are in a far better situation to deal picks than the Canucks are in terms of depth within the prospect system..

If Fistric actually did any of those things, you might have a point.

No. As thin and bad as the Stars are on D, Fistric wasn't going to be able to crack their top 6. That should tell you all you need to know about him.

Three of those four guys you named can barely skate. Losing Souray, Pardy, and Fistric won't make the team softer. Those guys usually couldn't skate well enough to deliver useful hits. The Stars will be tougher to play against by filling those spots with guys who are faster and can contribute more.

Other than allowing young kids to come up I don't see how this really benefits the Stars. They have such a weak D corps as is, do they feel content on going for a top pick or something?
Not a lot of physicality on that D, could see a lot of run n gun games in Dallas.

Good fit and solid grab for the Oil though, they grab someone better at actual hockey than Peckham and Sutton. Also someone to keep the other teams in check if the Big 5 in Edm are getting roughed up.

If Fistric is known for one thing, it's not throwing hits. Clearly you just hate the guy.

No, but unlike the Oilers fans raving about this for a few pages, he's actually seen Fistric play.

Here they come folks the "MARK FISTRIC FANCLUB!"

Dallas had to move him because he wasn't going to sign there and they probably have some sort of internal salary cap so they need the money for Benn.

Don't belive any of the other BS. There backend is filled with such stars as Aaron Rome,Phillip Larsen and "insert minor leaguer here"

This allows Dallas to promote Jordie to appease Jamie.

Canucks need a rental center and a RW before a 6th d-man anyways.

Like the move for the Oilers though.

Number 6 d-man that can play physical, no one is expecting anything more than that.

numbers IMO are too flashy.. The guy hits at a 4hits\game pace.. puts him among top 5 in the league if not at top. JoeN in an interview at deadline last year said that they were able to trade Grossmann because Fistric was able to replace him.

Fair deal for both teams.

Classy move by GMJN to send him to Edmonton. A 3rd is fair value, he's a 6/7 with GREAT physicality but no offensive upside and average defense at best. His main downside is getting out of position, often going for the big hit. Looking forward to him smashing the Sedin's around though.

Really? Cuz apparently we are expecting him to win the Norris. Sure none of us have seen him play at all, but isn't he like a #1 dman or something?

#watchoutkarlsson

This is exactly what we needed on the third pair, I don't know why some people are being so negative in this thread, it's a good deal for both sides.

Seems like the twitter world likes this move.

Sounds like JN believed he would lose him at the end of the year. 3rd is decent compensation if that is the case. Good move by the oil if they can sign him up.

What money? The $40 saved by replacing Fistric with some other guy who is a better player?

it seems as though you have a bone to pick with fistric, Its hard to trust your opinion when other posters, scouts and videos point to the opposite of what you are saying.

Your quote shows just how little you know about the Stars organisation.
