The Oilers, failing to attract, deal, for any offensive Centers are left with RNH, who possibly won't start the season and nobody else at this point to play topsix. We have no center in the org right now that is prepared to play topsix minutes at seasons start.
Do you mean that Gagner is the second best Oiler?
I still think Sam will sign here. He wants to play here, his friends are here, his life as he knows it so far is here. He also wants to get his fair market value though. Guess we'll see who blinks first.
But you're right Replacement, nobody can come in and play top6 C minutes after RNH (if he's even ready to go for TC and the start of the season). MacT, I hear there's a top 6 C available who's pissed at his old coach/org and has excellent corsi and puck possession stats....
