Oilers Revamp Blueline With Late Moves

The Oilers attacked their blueline at this years' trade deadline, completely revamping the struggling unit that was seen as the team's strength heading into the season.

The reaction from Edmonton fans at SBN's The Copper & Blue:

Well that was quite the 48 hours. On Monday afternoon came news of the departure of Denis Grebeshkov and the disc problems of Ladi Smid; on Tuesday prospect Cody Wild was sent packing; and today two more high priced defencemen left town while a third has developed a troubling medical condition. In return the Oilers acquired two maturing defencemen, three draft picks, a whole bunch of cap room, and possibly the worst defensive crew in the National Hockey League. Oh yeah, and a physical forward picked up on waivers. Not to mention a very welcome show of the long-rumoured but rarely-seen Katz Bucks.
