Oilers have a **** load of prosepcts in the system--they have an extra 2nd rounder this year and they needed some toughness on the 4th line who can actually play and by the sounds of it..Brown will stick up for the kids when they get run and will toss the body around and will take the stupid penalty--sometimes that is what you need.
99% of the time I hate trading draft picks, but in this case and Fistric case, the oilers added toughness they were missing
It is a 4th. Nobody is expecting it to become a 3rd lol.
And if it does, then good for both teams.
Good trade for the Oil. But I have to agree with what some are saying. Why doesn't Tambo just claim some of these guys off the waiver wire? Brown was expendable because Nonis didn't waste an asset for his replacement.
Good for the Leafs. The Oil have no business past the second round anyways.
We needed to make some room because Lupul, Frattin, and Gardiner will all be back soon, and it's always nice to pick up some extra picks. I'll miss Brown though, he was a solid fourth liner who's speed and very physicality made him great on the forecheck. He is undersized for a tough guy though.
The oilers can draft, it's their choice to follow the cbj mold and rush skinny 18 year olds into the nhl where men push them around thats the problem. No one couldve seen that coming eh edm fans. Maybe just everyone but edm fans
