True, but let's say it's ten games in and Smith has an injury that'll keep him out of a game. The Oilers then send out Brewer and Staios, who are certainly more than adequate, Semenov, who I like alot but has played fewer than 100 NHL games, Cross, Ferguson and Luoma.

McKeens describes Bergeron as a swift skating puck mover, so I think he's okay in that department. Maybe Jim Harnock can confirm.

McKeens also say Luoma "moves well for his size" so maybe I'm overreacting.
