Yep. Last year Gilbert, Petry and Whitney were the puck movers but Gilbert was hurt/traded and Whitney was immobile so Petry had to carry the weight for most of the year. And the best part is that playing with a puck mover like Petry made a guy like Smid more able/confident to move the puck out on his own. If Justin can have that effect on Nick then the Oilers can have two decent pairings, perhaps even a third if Whitney can move more effectively.
