God, I hope not. I live in Boston and saw Souray play the Falcons several times. In terms of speed, heck, he's slower than Commodore, who Arniel was convinced was too slow for his system. Further, while the rocket shot was still there, he wasn't even that good positionally in games I saw.

The absolute LAST thing this team needs is to trade for another mediocre player. Pass.

Idk? Maybe Souray just dosent care about the Oilers orginazation any more? That could be the problem, or he is really done. Either way it seems too risky to claim him. Do we really need a guy who gives up on there team? I think not. We do need some help on the back end though.

I think we should take a chance. This dude knows he'd down to his final shot in the league and if he doesn't perform with the BlueJackets he probably won't get another look by anyone else. Plus Howson probably doesn't have any other good trades lined up.
