1) Unless Keith has a mini career renassisance in Edmonton, I don't believe this is a good move. A 38-40 year old top four defenseman doesn't exactly set up the Oilers for a long serious run in the playoffs if they can break through. Chicago wins just by virtue of getting 5 million off of the cap and getting decent assets for someone who is well not worth them.
2) I think this trade indicates that the Blackhawks want to make a move to acquire Seth Jones. They definitely can afford him now since they just cleared out at least 5.4 million and they can definitely pay for the outrageous salary he's going to demand on his next contract. (Or perhaps I'm looking a bit too much into it because C. Jones was the only viable return)
