Signing Some 3rd line vets to lead the team to the next level ( Knuble, Arnott) just a locker room prescense type player to help the new coach and help develop the players..
Signing a centerman like jokinen or hecht

Possibly Sign Ryan Smyth, his contract was brutal last year...6.25million, since he wants to remain an oiler and take a "home town discount" anywhere from 2.5-3.5 million is fair value here..

Lines could be
Move Horcoff or jokinen/ hecht to the wing on the 3rd

Hall - RNH - Eberle
Smyth - Gagner - Yakupov
Jokinin - Horcoff - Jones
Eager - Belanger - Knuble

Looks solid enough to me
Smyth does not belong on the 2nd line, we are not going to sign Knuble and Jokinin, we signed Petrell for the 4th line.
