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.
As I said New Jersey still does it and has won 3 cups doing it and went to the finals last year. Anaheim had Andy Macdonald as their first line center when they won the cup. Yes most teams have a elite center but usually they don't have as good of wingers as Hall and Eberle. The biggest thing you need is center depth. If we can get a guy who usually puts up around 40 points is big and strong and can win face offs and play defensively I think we'd be closer to a cup in the next 5 years then waiting for RNH to develop. If we could move RNH+N.Schultz for Berglund and Shattenkirk would you do it? Berglund is the type of center i'd like to see centering Hall and Eberle.
