Not bad. Term might be kinda long though at that amount.

Good for both parties. They both needed each other, especially Ference going back home.

I think most people expected it.

anything under $2mil is a bargain, 2.5-3 is fair, 3.25 is slightly overpaid.

but he fills a need a solid dman, gritty, with cup experience.

good move, curious what other moves they do.

Very good number for the Oil. Have to wonder why Ferrence didn't get more. I would have thought for sure he was getting around 4, if not higher.

There will be periods you hate him, but he'll be decent and give you good leadership.

The Giroux thread is that-a-way.

Short of the Flyers successfully offer-sheeting one of the big RFA D-men, I think Coburn probably stays in Philly.

Great experienced pickup that will make the Oilers tougher to play against. Show some of the young fellows what is needed to win one of those rings!

The only reason Ference is a good fit with Edmonton is because he's a veteran with experience to know what it takes to go deep. His apparent skill is being a tad bit overrated here. He's an upgrade but hes not going to make the Oil much better.
