Naw, man, no mustache = bad 4th liner.

Terrible fighter?

For his weight class hes pretty good, actually.

Oil fans will like him. Hes an underrated PKer too. Hits good as well.

This is some good asset management by Nonis (and bad by Tambo). He picked up McLaren for free off waivers and traded Brown to Edmonton for a 4th round pick.

Brown is going to be a great fit for Edmonton due to his grit and speed tandem. Though I can't help but feel Edmonton management really dropped the ball here.

Brown is the kind of player you can acquire easily in the offseason for very little. Due to not building an NHL team properly, Edmonton is now forced to overpay mid-season.

Only a 4th but it shows a larger issue here.

This is the type of player EDM fans should expect. He is a team guy first. Tons of Heart.

Thank You for providing us with sweet mustaches in your time in Toronto.

On Leafs-Oil trade: It's a 4th rounder in 2014 that becomes a 3rd if the Oilers make the playoffs.

Hahahahaha Good luck with that one Leafs.

Mainly because when he fights true enforcers he can't hold his own. He's more of a grinder though, then a fighter

Yes, but why stop there? Maybe he should be tarred and feathered for giving up a "top 120" pick or would that be going too far?

Yeah the guy can skate but he just can't get the puck out of his own zone. He'll give effort though.

Good pickup for EDM, you will love him. I will miss him but I'm glad for Brown. Also glad we kept McLaren and Orr tbh.

Quick name a player who was picked by the Oilers in the fourth round or later you is/was worth a damn in the last 10 years?

Fourth round and beyond as nothing picks. Sure you could find a diamond in the rough but that's highly unlikely. Plus the Oilers are already stacked with lots and lots of young players. They didn't give up anything to get Brown.

I'm really mad to see Brown go.

The guy is essentially Rudy on skates. He leaves it all out on the ice every game.

He has some serious wheels, but hands of concrete. He can PK, hit, and drop the gloves when he wants. He sticks up for his teammates like nobody else.

Probably exactly what EDM needed.

Oh.

Then it's a waste of a pick, cause Hordi is in OKC.

Wonderful.

Surprised he got a 4th anyway. The conditional part is a (relatively) huge bonus. You won't make the playoffs thanks to brown, he'll just be a passenger along for the ride.

As it stands right now its a nothing for nothing trade value wise. He was the odd man out on the 4th line. Won't be missed

Miss his speed, but its been determined, who the sheriffs are for now.

I expect more trades with logjams coming up, both on F and D.
Pick used as trade fodder?

He was great for the leafs. However the fact that Orr and Maclaren seem to be more capable of chipping in a goal or two made him expendable. Not to mention the 5 minute major probably put the nail in the coffin.
