.. or Bear is top 2 RH D.. I'm hoping for an upgrade to pair with Nurse, Larsson comes back as #2 RH D



I think Bear is badly under-rated by some here who tend to remember only specific gaffes and not the entirety of his play. It's a lot of the same criticism we heard about Jeff Petry at a similar age and point in his development path, and often from the same people.

I think the right side would be fine next year with Bear, Larsson and Bouchard. The left side is good too - as long as Klefbom is coming back. (I do wonder if Klefbom's salary is factored in when people keep saying we have $25MM to spend). If he's not, then they need an upgrade there. Nurse, Jones, Russell, Lagesson is pretty weak, and that's assuming we don't lose Jones in the expansion draft. I still really hate that Russell has yet another year here.

There's been some concern with Bear that like virtually every defenceman we've had at his point on development, the Oilers sell low and end up with egg on their face, but I wonder if the business side of the Oilers has any pull there. He's right up there with McDavid in the number of jerseys he helps to sell, so trading him off could be an economic hit as well...somehow, I doubt Jake DeBrusk jerseys would sell at the same rate.
