I think OEL has played quite a bit better than people let on. The offensive stats are way down, but that's a function of the way he's been deployed I think. He, Schenn and Myers are really the only ones that can play a lick of defense on this team at the moment imo.

A guy who plays all those minutes, a guy who knows how to defend...

You're gonna have to pay a guy like that.

Agreed about Schenn, Myers and OEL.

Getting Garland was redundant. I would’ve just been happy with OEL for Eriksson, Beagle and Roussel

Shane Wright strikes me as a Curtis Lazar type

Of course you'll from certain corners that Alex Biega is better than OEL, but these are the peculiarities of the market.

In the market you'll hear from people like Drance and Shah who have never had a pair of skates on that Ethan Bear is the second best defenseman on the team. Of course it's laughable.

The Ethan Bear love by Drance and his cronies is absolutely hilarious. 650 is totally unlistenable after Halford and Brough leave the air

With what you know now, are you picking Cooley ahead of Wright?

The guy who said that would be "a top-5 GM in the NHL", or so says another certain corner! :lol:
