"“Trade Nurse and get two proven blue collar defenseman for the price of one overpaid underachiever.” — Dave Ligertwood, Penticton, B.C."

That is quite honestly the worst trade idea I’ve ever heard. I have no idea why some fans hate Nurse so much, it’s 100% unwarranted.

I’ve already illustrated Nurse’s use to the Edmonton Oilers and how he is legitimately a top pairing d-man.

Guys who can play their minutes with his talent are a rarity in the league. You don’t just trade that away unless you’re getting a clear upgrade on the position.

Trading away one player for two is an instant loss for the team.

If you want to make the Edmonton Oilers worse overnight, make this type of shortsighted embarrassing trade.

Huge miss, Dave. Huge, huge miss.

I’m so happy Ken Holland is our GM when I read bird droppings like this.
