If by some miracle he plays most of the year as the Oilers first line center you can rest assured there is no playoff spot for us. I give him 2 games there at best.
oh yeah i couldnt agree more.... horcoff is *at best* a 2nd line center... and i dont think that he will solve our centre problems at all either.... im just happy that we finally have smyth playing back on the wing where he belongs.... basically i think that horcoff doesnt really need to do a whole lot on that line except to play some D and let smyth and hemmer to "do their thing" (i really do think that highly of both of them)..... also if stoll can prove is a reliable NHL centerman that also takes some pressure off lowe for getting a C in return for comrie, because stoll will eventually be a 3rd line C (everybody seems to think so anyhow)

now dont get me wrong, i still *want* a big scoring C in return for comrie, but i just dont think its gonna happen.... and if stoll can work out as a C for real, then it makes our situation look much better (as does the play of reasoner as well btw)
