Agreed. I don't think Whitney is an Oiler after this season. He seems to be standoffish to the fans and honestly, I don't think I want someone with his overall attitude around the kids too much. Next season I wouldn't be offended if our lineup was

Smid/J.Schultz
Petry/Marincin
N.Schultz/Klefbom

It gives each of the young guy a vet to guide their game, and to be honest, from what I've seen of their games, Marincin is a lot more NHL ready than Klefbom is.
