Funny, how so many here think they could have made a better deal, and as fans we over value our assets and undervalue a champion and hall of famer. I think this is a akin to the Hall deal. This was a deal for something desperately needed in that dressing room, in practice and in tight playoff games. We can post all we want about how our GM gave up too much, but he knows better than any of us what our young d core needs. A couple of years of leadership from Keith is the best bet on grooming a young and potentially great defence. Kieth is not the future of Oilers defence, but he will have an impact on what it will become.


This makes me think of Adam Oates and how he taught the guys how to win faceoffs. Just because Keith has won awards, team and individual, does not mean that on July 12, 2021 he is worth what we paid. Not like there were a bunch of teams lining up for him. Edmonton held the chips on this one and still couldn't make a good deal.

That said, I hope Keith does really well. He is an Oiler now and I will gladly cheer him on for all the success possible. But I don't think history is on his side for having a better season than last as a 38 year old defender.


This is where I'm at. Not happy with the trade, but am very hopeful that Keith can contribute and help mentor guys like Bouchard, Broberg, and even Nurse. I honestly hope he can exceed expectations because let's face it the bar is low.

Keeping in mind that Klefbom is apparently done for good, I'm putting away the torch and pitchfork and just wait and see what Keith brings us.

What does this trade say about Holland's thought process?

He didn't particularly value Jones, or the 3rd rounder. He thinks he has lots of cap space. We are now choosing between getting better up front or in net, there isn't room for two other big additions.

And he either loves old d-men or secretly works for Chicago.

Its actually a $4.7 M cap increase (minus C. Jones $850K), I would have been OK with D. Keith at $3.5 M, Chicago retaining $2M, and NO picks included, so the disappointment I have right now is the extra $1.2M in cap we gain over what I had expected, and of course the 3rd round pick (heard its "conditional"? .. not that the conditions matter when it comes to the Oilers, since the NHL will find a way to rule the conditions are met regardless..)

Not happy about talk of a 3rd, conditions should be high.. like making the Stanley Cup final..

Wish we could have held out with Chicago for a more favourable deal.. but its only 2 years, I'm convinced Keith still has lots of gas in the tank, and is an upgrade at #2 LHD, just means we won't be spending big cap on expensive UFAs at wing..

This deal should never have been done, but if it had to be done, why now? Why not after the Seattle draft? There is so much bad about this. They should have retained 50% and THEY should have paid someone a 3rd to retain a further 50%. Keith at around $1.5 for Jones wouldn’t have been horrible.

I am so pissed right now. Holland is as bad as all the rest.

So the player gets to decide if they keep their NTC. Keith wanted to come here. Was there any discussion about "okay we'll bring you in but no promises in year 2" and get him to waive it?

He could always just retire if he still wants to be near his kid...

I was never against seeing the Oil acquire Keith, but not at what Holland gave up and especially not when there was no salary retention involved. This team really makes it hard to feel optimistic about anything....

Worse trade[ 20 vote(s) ]
1.$7.5M Gomez to the Habs 15 / 75%
2.$5.5M Keith to the Oilers 5 / 25%

Is this the worst trade ever considering flat cap, McDavid and Draisaitl in their prime, team needs, etc…?

Nah - we’ll lose the first round in 7, but since we had 3 wins, the NHL will multiply that by 4 possible rounds = 12 wins divided by 3. Yup, enough for 3 round wins. 2nd round pick it is.

Thing is, it doesn’t even matter if Keith comes in and wins the Norris. We had every conceivable advantage. That we let the Hawks dump Keith on us without retaining anything, PLUS getting 2 assets is larceny. His performance won’t change that this was a massive massive blunder by Lowe. Er, Holland.

Bowman is one of the best GM's in the league and has been for over a decade now. Who really thought that Holland was ever going to fleece him? That was my main concern with this deal before it was made: a minnow was trying to make a deal with a great white shark. Even if that shark had its fins cut off, it was still in a position to eat that minnow for breakfast.

The Hawks dump the salary of a player well past his prime and pick up a potential young replacement while also putting themselves into a better position to take a crack at signing that replacement's star brother both through the family tie and the cap space that was just freed up when the sucker-er-trading partner agreed to take it all despite being in the better position as far as leverage was concerned.

There should just be a !@$@ing memo sent to all staff in the Oil front office to just avoid making ANY deals with the Hawks as long as Bowman is still there. They just keep getting owned by him.

Very speedy skater with excellent work ethic. Söderlund is rather shifty and plays with plenty of intensity. Has a decent scoring touch, but can also be used as a role player with his speed and forechecking skills. A great character and team player. (EP 2017)

He doesn’t stop moving his feet in the offensive zone, which makes him tough to defend against, as he’s like a little sparkplug out there, Hockeyprospect.com 2017

He uses his puck skills to deke out opponents, as well as to protect the puck along the wall. He doesn’t shy away from working the boards, Futureconsiderations.ca 2016

Soderlund? 23 year old 5’09 center who shoots left and had 5 assists as an AHL rookie last year.

Now the deal makes sense.

Eff my life. Not hating on Keith. I’m looking forward to seeing him in an Oilers uniform, but every fibre of my soul says he should have been a bargain, but yet we pay above the asking price.

It’s a freaking flat cap and Chicago had no leverage. Even if Holland makes unbelievable deals for the rest of the summer, it does not excuse this pitiful transaction. Absolutely horrendous and a fire able offence.

Full Oilers-Hawks deal:
Duncan Keith and Tim Soderlund for Caleb Jones And 2022 3rd RD pick
The 2022 pick will become a 2nd RD pick if Edm wins 3 rounds in 2022 playoffs AND Keith is amongst the top 4 in Oilers D time on ice during the first three rounds of the 2022 Playoffs.


Still yikes.



Soderlund? 23 year old 5’09 center who shoots left and had 5 assists as an AHL rookie last year.

Yeah, we paid more than full price when we had the hammer, for once, doesn't bode well for any future possible trades where we want an asset and the other team actually doesn't want to, or have to, give it up..

Oh good, if McDavid somehow drags this team to win three rounds in the playoffs, the Oilers give up a higher pick. Perfect.

Pretty sure if this happens and the oilers are in the Cup final, people won’t be so butt hurt about this. But oh my gaaaaawd heaven forbid Holland does anything in this market lately.

Shore signs. WHY!?
Nuge signs. WHY THE TERM??
Keith trade. WHY!?

I thought people were generally okay with the Nuge one. As always OG, I hope that I, and the other negative nellies, are wrong and Keith does great here. Just looks unlikely.



You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

For:

Keith

Maybe just stop trading Holland, you suck badly at it. Sucked in Detroit too.

Draft, develop, that's all he should be allowed to do until he's fired.

I'd just settle for a moratorium on making deals with the Hawks and sticking to trading partners like Treliving before he finally gets the can in Calgary.

Chelios comparison by Holland. Who saw that coming?

Wait a sec, I thought he said it wasn't good to get Chelios even after 2 straight cup wins to try to get the 3rd in a row?

Of course not. I'm sure Holland's son gave Keith a shining review in his pro scout report.

Holland on asking for more from Chicago using the leverage he had: "It's hard to squeeze people in this league"

He says this after just being squeezed. Clown.


Holland doesn't know Keith mainly played against 2nd/3rd liners last year. Says that once he comes here and isn't always out against the best players his game will be better.
