You can't have 7 forwards on your top PP anyways, so what is the point of continuing down that road?
Your analysis of Oil fans is insulting, and incorrect. Oiler fans recognize the need for big two way forwards and defensemen. We also recognize that Jay Bouwmeester has never made a lick of difference on his team, and his contract is 3-4 million overpaid. We don't need those kind of contracts. We need to be the type of team that can take a contract or two from a team with cap trouble this summer. That's how we got Pronger. I don't expect another Pronger level player, but I think we can hope for better than Bouwmeester.
