IMO, the Oilers organization like a few of the potential top 4-5 guys we have in Marincin, Klefbom, Musil,etc.

We really need more proven defensemen in the NHL, i.e 25+ years old that are bonafide top 4 guys.

As far as Smid signing, before the lockout ended his agent said on a local talk show here he thought the negotiations would be pretty quick and that they weren't worried about starting during the season.

He has lived here a long time, his girlfriend (now wife I believe) is from Edmonton, and he seems to be a great teammate, so seems to be a long-term fit.
