Plus, theres a glut at forward (especially with Reasoner almost ready),
not to mention Rita and Salmelainen deserving of a roster spot.

And the most important fact lately has been that Salo is looking like a player again, and we know that in short stints Conks can be excellent.

I have a feeling something is brewing........though with Lowe you never know.
According to Sportsnet prior the game against New Jersey, Ulanov was signed because the Oilers are decimated by injuries on the blueline. I think the Roadrunners are decimated by injuries on the blueline as well. Both Bobby Allen and Jan Horacek are out indefinitely because of injuries. They also had to call a defenseman up from the ECHL. Do the math and figure it out that both the Roadrunners and Oilers are decimated by injuries on the blueline.

Brewer and Staios have been getting more minutes than they should in the last 2 games but that's because the team is decimated by injuries to the blueline. Both Smith and Cross are out and that left Brewer and Staios to log most of the ice by the defense.
