“Oilers have been the clear winner in free agency so far”: Twitter reacts to Tyson Barrie signing with Edmonton Oilers

Barrie’s a good fit for the Oilers but I’m not sure the “he’s going to put up 100 points on the PP” narrative works. He had a huge chance with Tavares, Marner, Matthews and Nylander and he didn’t fit. If he takes the same shot volume approach, he’ll make that PP worse not better.

the PP under keefe with those guys and barrie was pretty damn good up until the playoffs

The Oilers have been the clear winner in free agency so far for me. Picked up three very good fits at a bargain price, and for the short term. Smart work by Holland. Third line needed upgrading, and Barrie can run the PP this year. No rush on Bouchard either.

Oilers sign Puljujarvi, Turris, Barrie and Ennis combined for less than 8 million. Holland is terrible as a GM right Oiler fans? #Oilers #NHLFreeAgency

The Edmomton Oilers signed Tyson Barrie signed to a cheaper contract than what TJ Brodie, Justin Schultz and Chris Tanev all received. The best part is, Tyson Barrie is better than all of them. #LetsGoOilers #HockeyTwitter

Barrie is a huge add for the Oilers. That gives ~35 minutes a night with either Barrie or Bear driving offense 5×5.

Jones and Barrie

I’ve been pretty adamant the Barrie isnt the ideal fit here, but there are three things you have to love about this deal:
1) He chose us
2) It’s a great price
3) Surely we’re about to trade Kris Russell
