Edmonton was within one win with Horcoff as it's number 1 center. IMO having good center depth and a well balanced team is more important then one Elite center.
Which model can you get away with not having a top center?
Maybe the Bruins to an extent but that team is built entirely differently than the Oilers otherwise, every single Cup winner/contender in the last decade has had a high end center.
So you want to roll with Bozak and Gagner as the 1-2 punch going forward?
Why does RNH need to be traded at all? I don't see the logic here.
