There were plenty of opportunities to get a fourth line centre. We could've called up Vande Velde, claimed Adam Hall on waivers, traded for Steckel, etc. Any of those players would've been a better option than Smyth.
The problem is that the Oilers didn't want to make any of those moves because they are afraid of benching Smyth again.
