Me and Trottier came to an agreement on Comrie for Scatchard + Hunter I am sure most other Oiler fans would not like it but MacT said we were going in a more defensive direction and that would be a good step in that direction. Scatchard put up 27 goals last year and should be accountable for 20 on a regular basis, hes also really good on face-offs which we need after Marchant left, both him and Hunter are Alberta boys.
possible line-ups I see with Scatchard

York-Scatchard-Dvorak (good size up front finally lets York play where he is best suited on the left wing and very good offensively and defensively)

Moreau-Scatchard-Pisani/Rita/Hunter (I think Moreau and Scatchard would go great together take Pisani for defense, Rita for a scoring touch but still good on d, and Hunter for a pure size masher line)

Comrie is a great asset but great role guys like Scatchard are just as rare and vital to success as any superstar forward and guys like him we can keep for a long time where as Comrie is just a blip on the map.
