Jeremy Roenick loves giving his opinion. Roenick is as outspoken as they come, sharing his thoughts and feelings in usually the most blunt way possible. Thanks to the invention of Twitter, Roenick is able to share these opinions instantly and directly with fans - for better or worse.

Chicago was mostly quiet at the trade deadline, completing just one move. The Blackhawks brought in Johnny Oduya from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a second-round and a third-round pick in 2013. Heading into the deadline it was believed Chicago needed to make a push for a reliable defenseman and potentially a new goaltender in order to be true Cup contenders.

Was Oduya the move Chicago needed? If you ask Jeremy Roenick, it wasn't.

Roenick is entitled to his opinion. As an analyst, he is paid to give them. When it comes to the Oduya trade, Roenick expressed disappointment - a feeling likely shared by most of Chicago's fans that were expecting the club to make a bit more noise at the deadline. Here it appears Roenick was upset that Chicago did so little with the deadline while paying a hefty price to bring in their new defenseman.

Was Roenick's Tweet in poor taste? Probably, but that's really nothing new for the former player. Perhaps Roenick is more upset that Oduya will wear his old number, 27. Roenick has expressed publicly that he wants Chicago to retire his old number, a motion that ultimately fell on deaf ears.
