Everyone should accept that fact that this team has "no depth" at any position and all we can do is hope Salo steals a lot of points for this team..........and i wouldn't count on that happening either.
With or without comrie, oilers would have lost these games. This team needs a veteran center who can fight through the checkers like Doug Weight or Bill Guerin had done. And comrie is not the guy. He is more suited for wing than a center.
K. Lowe has not addressed the real issue, Size and toughness at middle for THIS SEASON. I don't care how many games oilers will win with Ed Caron or whoever in the future. I want to see winning now.
