I asked the boys over at Artic Ice to give us a lowdown on Oduya, here you go: In acquiring Johnny Oduya, the Chicago Blackhawks get a defenseman who is best labeled as a "minute eater". The Swedish blue-liner best suits the role of a fourth to sixth defenseman and can play roughly 20 TOI a night. Oduya excels on the penalty kill and he was one of Winnipeg's frequently used defenders when short a man. While he was not renowned for his offensive play, Oduya is a decent puck moving defenseman who makes a good first pass out of his zone - save a few ill-advised turnovers. He will provide good depth to the Blackhawks as they gear towards their 2012 playoff run and will need to continue to eat minutes for the likes of Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith should they wish to make a deep push for the Stanley Cup.
