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.
I agree Lander needs competition for the 4c spot other than Acton.

But reading your post made me think changing that 4c isn't going to make the difference from a playoff spot to a non-playoff spot.

Our playoff hopes and dreams next year are going to rely on those top two lines.
