I SEE THIS OFTEN ! I am an Oiler fan I have been one since they came into the NHL . Most first over all are better then Benn ? How ? More skill , yes ? Are they as tough ? No . Can we measure toughness ? No . Lets say all the Oiler players hit their ceiling . Lets say Hall is a 45/45 man Eberle is a 40/40 man , Yak is a 50/30 man RNH is a 35/65 man . These are not tough players . Would it not be better to have a guy as tough as Nails that will put up 30/30 then one of our big 4 ? I would love a big tough second line center that can put up points , fight and have players of other teams looking over their shoulder to see if the are going to be creamed by him . Makes them rush their passes = more scoring chances for the others . I believe that Benn would make more of a difference for these reason then Yak . Plus we need a second line center .
I am no expert just being honest and seeing our team for what is is right now .
