There was no indication in my post at all about Perron compared to crosby except for thier size relation.

Oiler fans are so used to sitting and watch nothing change, just to be content with the "potential" of the team, its time for potential to be traded and used to get player like Perron (top six players). We are a better team today that we were before the trade. If the oilers can get a bigger 3rd line winger one day that eventually makes a bickell like transition to the 2nd line then great, but thats a crap shoot.

For the record bickell wasnt exactly a world beater during the reg. season, he was on pace for 39 points, yes he had an awesome playoffs, but so did fernando pisani and many others in years previous.

The oilers line up for the top 6 isn't bad and for all the size junkies out there

6'1" 195lbs - 6'1" 185lbs - 5'11 185lbs

6' 205lbs - 5'11" 199lbs - 5'11 185lbs

6'2" 192lbs - 6' 200lbs - 6' 184lbs

6'1" 201 - 6' 194lbs - 6'2" 236lbs or 5'11" 205lbs


Hall-RNH-Ebs
Perron-Gagner-Yak
Smyth-Gordon-Hemsky
Jones-Lander-Eager or brown


We can assume Hemsky will be traded and maybe smyth will play 4th line, the possibility that Jesse Joensuu could make the team too at 6'4" 209lbs.

The oilers could be alot smaller, and the team roughly avg out to be 6' 200lbs (waits for the its not the size but how a player plays comments...)
