As for Comrie, I have to disagree with you on Pisani, I think he signifies what a true Oiler is. He plays hard, and he worked even harder to get here. His play is not flashy, but it does the job.

As for Comrie, I want a Dman to replace Ferguson or Cross.
I never said I thought Staios over achieved its just the consensus in the media I have said numerous times he is highly under-rated and thought he was hands down our best defense man last year. I like Pisani and hes cheap but am not as certain about his long term potential as u so we'll disagree and having a veteran in that spot could help a lot.I think Cross is passable on the third pairing but his slowness makes me cringe Oilers are supposed to be fast and Fergie is super cheap I would not mind keeping him till he retires just as a 7th d-man but do not want him starting regularly with a healthy line-up
