Do you think the Oilers should have signed a veteran?

According to, the Canucks signed Mike Keane to a $500 000 one way deal.

Most pundits pick Vancouver to finish ahead of the Oil. If this is true then why is a veteran good enough to make the Canucks and not the Oilers?

When Dallas signed Muller a few years ago for $600K I was angry. This time I am not angry because I knew that our GM wasn't going to do it.

We all talk about wanting to go further than a first round exit but isn't there anyone out there that agrees with me that having Mike Keane on our fourth line and Jarret Stoll as the number one centre in Toronto may possess some advantage to our young club?

Are the Oilers too stuck in their youth movement that a player with 3 cup rings on three different teams wouldn't provide the 2nd intermission calming presence when we are up 3-2 that we end up winning a few more?

And no, I have no interest in debating Mike Keane's value or ability with anyone. Just the philosophy of adding an inexpensive veteran.
