Win-win I'd say.
That's what most sane people are saying.
None of the assets are huge.

Mike Brown worth more than Loktionov... why is that a thing

Anyway, meh meh trade. 4th doesn't mean much and Brown is needed because Oilers lack toughness.

If that 4th turns into a regular NHLer I'll pay everyone in this thread $10. This is a guy who competes every night and wears his heart on his sleeve. I like it

Wouldn't go that far since he's a middle weight but his skating speed and not being a detriment to the team by being on the ice makes for it.

Excellent fit for the Oilers.

I will forever thank Mike Brown for crushing Kaleta into the boards this year. Good luck in Edmonton!

This post screams incompetence. The only way Sestito is better than Brown is that he's bigger. We've had enough useless guys like that over the years.

Nope. Edmonton wants Volpatti, Washington has priority and claims him, Edmonton trades for Brown

But for a 4th and potential 3rd? lunacy.

lol @ some people saying he is better then sestito or volpatti. He is on par with sestito and,

Volpatti is maybe twice the player brown is. He hits harder, is just as good of a fighter, skates a bit slower but is way better on the FC.

guys like brown are on waivers every day, he is no prust.
Nobody wanted Sesito, but now that he is on the canucks he is all of a sudden good? lol seems legit

Montreal and Chicago put in claims for Sestito.

People wanted him.

I don't have a problem with the trade but if this is what Tambellini thinks is going to save the Oilers season, that's a problem.

The Oilers problem is scoring goals at 5v5. Mike Brown is not going to improve that. Being "tougher" does not translate to "winning more games".
