Smid and Petry are a pretty decent top pairing, far from an all-time worst. Absolutely fantastic 2nd pairing. Anyone that says they're bad either didn't watch them play or doesn't know what they're looking at.

I'm pretty reluctant to slot Whitney into the lineup, I'm pretty sure he's done playing hockey. Carle could maybe replace what Whitney used to bring.
This, living just outside of edmonton I get to see the oilers play a few times a year. And Petry is far too underrated (more so unproven). But he's one heck of a dman, he does everything well!


Also - I'm not an oilers fan, so this isn't a bias opinion.
