Contract Status: 1 year left on a 3 year deal with a cap hit of 3.4 million per season

2013 Over/Under Number: 4 goals and 16 assists

Season Review: Oduya is definitely a defensive defenseman. He does not provide much in the way of offense with his 3 goals and 13 assists.

He had some defensive lapses in the playoffs, and definitely let a few players skate right past him. The time that stands out in my mind, is when Tyler Toffoli sped past him for a breakaway goal.

Oduya may be a big trade piece this offseason with one year left in his contract, and still a high trade value.

Grade: C-

    About the same grade.. C-. Overall, our D-Men disappointed me all season, including the playoffs so hopefully the all recommit themselves 2being the very best they can be during the regular season & playoffs! Moreover, the entire coaching staff shares some of the blame 4not coaching like they should have been! One never stops learning…the way one practices is typically how one plays in the games that count! Go Hawks!
