Peter Chiarelli had what we might charitably describe as a divisive summer, with the fan base split over both his choice of Adam Larsson as a long-term defensive solution and also the cost paid to acquire that player.

While the trade itself is highly debatable, what seems beyond dispute is the fact that the Edmonton Oilers will go into next season with a better top defence pair then they have iced in a long while.
