Do you think the Oilers should have signed a veteran?

Although I don't disagree that a veteran can be a valuable addition to a young team, I don't think a veteran forward is a good idea. I think we do have a number of vets playing that role currently, and more importantly, we have too many young players ready to make the next step to the NHL that it is more important to get them into the lineup than have their spot taken by an older player with a one-year contract.
As it is, we have Rita, Salmolainen and Sarno in Toronto, and Stoll in the press box (at least for now). Add in the fact that Comrie may sign OR be moved, possibly with another forward coming back in the deal, the roster spots are few and far between.
That being said, I'd like to see Edmonton pick up a player for the blue line (I was thinking Berard).
