Video: Ference leaves B's for Oilers

Scott Burnside breaks down the Oilers' signing of defenseman Andrew Ference.

"I talked to Andrew Ference earlier today after he'd signed the deal in Edmonton, and he'd seen the writing on the wall," Burnside says. "The Bruins have three or four terrific young defensemen coming up. We saw Torey Krug, we know Dougie Hamilton, [Matt] Bartkowski. Those are guys that the Bruins are going to want to ease into their lineup next season.

"And Andrew Ference was a guy that the Bruins felt they could get along without. He was an important part of that Bruin team the last four or five years, part of that Cup-winning team."
