Sorry, but its still pathetically inexperienced, even by the young Oilers' standards. You can maybe make a case that a single foreward line could be made that is reasonably seasoned.

Smyth, Dvorak, York, Reasoner, Isbister,...that's 5 "vets" out at least. I see what you're saying and sympathise, but at the same time....man alive, it was an experienced lineup and pointing out Moreau and Laraque just doesn't change it.
