Kneed Taylor Hall and tried to decapitate Eller. Literally nothing else to mention for this guy. Never liked him.

So....

Ference, Nikitin, Fayne, Reinhart and now Gryba.

That is a lot of guys who can't skate and can't pass the puck.

Can't believe we essentially traded Marincin for this POS plug.

Ross for Ewanyk, who cares. Marincin for Gryba still pisses me off but it's not as bad as it was at first.

Defense is lookin' different.

I like that.

I wonder if there are other reasons why Marincin was dealt... conditioning and such.

Nice trade! Big RHD! Hopefully we can still add a UFA D.

In: McDavid, Talbot, Reinhart, Gryba, Ross

Out: Marincin, Ewanyk, A bunch of picks out scouts would have effed up.

Say what you will but we added some decent NHL bodies today I like the moves so far.

We are far and away the worst D in the league now. We always were, but we actually made strides to get worse.

Maybe they're trying to acquire all of the bottom pairing defensemen and see if one or two of them magically turn into top pairing

The Oilers sure are acquiring a lot of bottom pairing guys for a team that already has too many bottom pairing guys.

Only thing Gryba is good for is throwing passes up the middle right on an opponents tape in the slot.

Should fit in perfectly

Third pairing or else I don't know what they're doing.

Basically Marincin Ewanyk for Ross and Gryba.

Not awful, but not exciting

We gotta hope Reinhart can come in and play like an actual top 4 D or this is gonna be another long year. Like the toughness Gryba brings we don't really have anyone like that.

Not really. We have a better d prospect and Gryba will be fine at the bottom pairing. We still have free agency for good defenders.

An entire D core of bottom pairing guys who can't move the puck. Awesome.

Puckmovers Chia PUCKMOVERS.

The Oilers need toughness but Christ, they need Dmen who can transition the puck and create offense.

The blueline is getting crowded now and crowded with bottom pairing Dmen. Either he moves some bodies out or (gulp), this might be it for the offseason.
