The lineup is basically what we ended up drafting in the bottom 10 with...again. It doesn't address any of the issues that were identified by MacT and just about everyone else.

You can address the bottom 6 with UFA's and savvy trades for draft picks/prospects. It's actually the easiest part of building a team, provided the GM and staff are any good at all.

1st line works..

The 2nd sucks. Too small and weak and MPS is not a 2nd line player yet.
Clowe is too expensive for the 3rd line.
Ditto for Horcoff. Horcoff needs to be bought out.
Neither Harti or Lander are ready for full time roles on a winning team.
Adding Monahan will do nothing for the Oil if they want to make the playoffs next season, which is the goal they say.
Petrell..meh..doesn't matter.
