What Domi is is a really gifted hockey player. And he seems to always be around the puck. He can score but also dish. He is also a much better skater than Richards was/is. While I think the Oilers need size in the #2C slot in Domi what you are getting is a guy with skill and hockey sense like Gagner who is a much better skater and a lot harder to deal with physically.
Like I've said in the past, size is great, but strength is the key. I'm really hoping that regardless of what happens with the season/draft that we walk away with an upgrade at center or a high end D.
