I am not a huge fan of the move either, but in his rookie year he did play 4th line duties for 1/2 a season and didn't look out of place. The offense and faceoffs weren't there, but the defense was. I didn't see a lot of the Barons this year. Perhaps the Oilers feel Lander has made strides in those areas and is ready for 4th line minutes.

It's starting to sound like MacT is going to sign Gagner and go into the season with the lineup we have. I guess we'll see if it's good enough to compete in a new tougher division.

Hall - Gagner - Yakupov
Perron - RNH - Eberle
Jones - Gordon - Hemsky
Brown - Lander - Joensuu
Smyth

Smid - Petry
Ference - Schultz
Belov - Schultz
Larsen, Potter

Dubnyk
Labarbera

To be honest, unless the kids all explode, I don't see that as a playoff team.
