It was a win-win afaic. Hawks got what they wanted, we got what we wanted. I do think he had an unfairly bad rep, but that water is so far under the bridge I have to lean uncomfortably far over to think about it.
I had to suffer through the Atlanta years and then the Jets years with Oduya. Haven't thought once about him after we traded him away.
Just out of curiosity, if you had to pick one or the other, who would you guys rather have back on the team.
The Stapler (Tim Stapleton)
I'd take Oduya back - LD depth is weak and he'd have kept Clitsome off the 2nd pairing earlier this season. OTOH, Stapler would've been pretty useful on the PP last year instead of Jokinen on the point for 20 games or whatever it was.
