No, its not a demotion for Ovi

Nick, yep. MJ, yep.

It's a big promotion for Beagle, who has earned one. Crabb was competing against MJ. Nuff said.

I think Oates or George wants to see LW Ovi with a RH center. I do too of course. Enter the only RH center we have, and one playing very well to boot. Oates the laughing stock with his random line generator, maybe its not so random after all.

Oates saw Ovi at LW did not need Nick.You have too, for years before Nick came here. Nick and RW nor LW Ovi have not shown the chemistry nor coordinated attack one could reasonably expect, to warrant keeping them together during a winless streak.

It's Oates trying to find a line for Ovi. While that line looked lost it did about as good as Ovi / Nick / X had done, whose only goal was potted by our goon futbol style.

That's a pretty dangerous experiment though.

What if he turns out to be amazing with a RH Center? Do you move Nick to the 2nd line permanently? Where is Ribeiro, a third line center at his price point?

Who do you fill the top spot with?
