Honestly would have rather had Gilbert. And don't like the term. But still better than Potter

The term is slightly long, but the dollars are great. If the cap keeps going up, $3.25M in 2 or 3 years might not look like much.

Not sure about this one. He's not a big body, and he's already 34.

Love it. Not only does he improve our defence with his play, he is a great leader that you want to have in the room.

No issues with this at all, will see where he fits in.

Hometown guy coming home, strong reputation as a solid room guy, and has played on a winner for the last few years.

one year too long. But to get a UFA in a group of slim pickings its worth it.

I love Ference but 4 years seems a bit much.

I'm beyond caring about cap hits and terms, I just want to see a better team next season. Hopefully they aren't done for the day. Good move to bring in a top-4 guy who has playoff experience.

Also could be a potential partner for Klefbom/Belov/whatever rookie defenceman the Oilers plug in.

Awesome move! I would rather have three years but the lower cap hit makes up for it. I was expecting $4M so this is a good deal in my view. Ference was a top 4 guy on two Stanley Cup finalists - he's a warrior!

4 years is long for 34 year old but with how sad the Oilers D is, they need to try and do what they can to improve it.

Everyone on TSN likes the move, therefore I like it too!

We need tough D-men with experience, this fills both needs. I like it!

Great signing. He's a reliable 2nd pairing guy. Great partner for Justin Schultz!
