Johnny Oduya

How has Oduya worked out for you guys? Has he been the Top-4 defenseman as advertised when he was acquired?

Very strong on the puck, solid not great in his own end, and rarely gets caught when he goes into offensive zone. He has been one of our best D for the last month.

Simple Math:

Oduya + Bergfors = Kovalchuk x 2

Add in Cormier and Kovalchuk is not missed.

no...

buy he has been good. solid in his own zone and chips in offensively. not terribly flashy but about as good as you can expect from what on our team is a defensive d-man

He's really slow and gets beat to the outside a lot. Not much of a position guy. He's prob been our 4th best dman.

One thing Oduya is not is slow. He's a very fast skater.

He refuses to be a (-). Actually is 2nd on the team with a +9.

Meh, I'm sure he seemed fast with NJ, but he's just above average speed-wise on the Thrash. Great with the puck, as that clip shows. Heady player, doesn't make too many mistakes. I'm very happy with him. Solid pick up. That deal was really good for us. I don't get how so many people say DW got hosed. Oduya + Bergie +2? Given our inability to sign UFA's, I'd say it's almost even if Kovy re-signs with NJD.

Oduya is great- the steady middle-pairing defenseman Hainsey was supposed to have been.

Well I've seen him get beat good amounts of times. St Louis burnt him and Oduya had like a 10 yard lead. He seems like he just lags to the puck.
