no I'll leave the dim Part to you, you've got that covered

the fact is that Edmonton like my own Islanders, doesnt have any legit 1st line forwards yet, Gagner and Hemsky and my own Okposo may grow into the role one day, but right now they are given first line roles by default because we have no one better or are you telling me that if Gretzky, Anderson and Kurri were still oilers that Hemsky would be a 1st liner?

Krejci and Kessel are legit because their playing lead roles on a leading stanley cup contender, a team that missed the presidents trophy by a point, Let Hemsky build a resume of success before annointing him. Krejci may be young but he's doing the job so you cant question him yet
