Good trade for the Oilers. They were pretty weak on the blueline. But is he the answer?

Good trade.. Oilers D will improve a bit but they still need to get rid of the overrated Theo Peckham before their D gets any better.

Certainly going to be our #1 defensemen. Give him a couple more years to improve his game and he'll be our new and improved version of Matthias Ohlund in no time

Fistric sucks. Good to see them accumulate more garbage defensemen.

Good trade for Edmonton. Fistric is a good bottom pair D man due to his physicality.

Brenden Dillon, a former classmate of mine in elementary has a good shot of cracking the roster now. He played the last game of the season for the stars last year and led all D in ice time.

Un-signed RFA for a Pending UFA.

Makes sense to me.

Oilers' D is weak, they need to shore up the D line. Team looks promising and has a chance to make playoffs.

New that was coming before I even opened the thread.

Fistric will help out the Oilers though, they needed a better D first leader on their back end and he's only 26 (so can grow with their young stars).

Oleksiak ready for primetime perhaps in Dallas?

Difference between this and the Canuck signings is that Fistric will actually have to play some decent minutes. In the end he will be seen to "suck" because of this. Whereas our acquisitions of Barker and Vandermeer who more or less do suck, will be fine because their role is to replace Aaron Freakin' Rome.

Oiler fans are teasing CAncuks inside out with the free agent signing of Cam Barker.

Mark Fristric is a garbage player. Waste of potentially a high pick. He is a Edmonton boy, but still. He's worst then Barker.

Glad to see them adding useless players. Not sure how Dallas got a 3rd out of this. Steal of a deal for Dallas.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

 

1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

combine results.  Ehlers 5'11 162 lbs of solid rock.

IMO Edmonton overpayed a bit, but the UFA options aren't great and they needed to address a need.

Fistric isn't a great defenseman, but IMO he is a good bottom pairing-7th defenseman who brings toughness when necessary. Not unlike a slightly better Alberts in Vancouver.

He'll be in competition for the 6th spot. And will make the competition a bit harder... so the move isn't all that bad.

However, as a Canucks fan I hope the Oilers try a bottom pairing of Sutton and Fistric in their opener and they get stuck on the ice against the Sedins.. :)

They literally only have 5 NHL ready defenseman, they need 7-8...

So I guess the writing is on the wall that Dallas will be acquiring a 2-3 defensemen in the next 4 days. e5

Doubtful Brenden makes it out of training camp. Jordie Benn with a higher chance.

One of the two young guys COULD make it. Still would make Rome - Young Guy the bottom pairing and no extras.

Goli - Larsen
Daley - Robidas
Benn - _______
Rome, _______

is the way I look at it.

Also, read that both Peckham and Sutton have some sort of injury, so acquiring Fistric now makes even more sense.

The Stars also have 3 3rd picks in the next draft - their own, one from the Grossman deal and this one.

A 3rd + _________ for Keith Ballard to round out their defense?

Toronto Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins was a defenceman when he played.

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.
