I can't believe that people are complaint about what we've done this summer. The only thing we failed at was acquiring a good backup to push Dubnyk, a 3rd line LW and a 4th line C. Gordon is an upgrade on Horcoff for the 3rd line, Perron is an upgrade on MPS on the 2nd line. Ference was good enough to be on the second pairing of one of the best teams in the league. Not every team can have a Keith/Seabrook 1st pairing, but if we can run 3 quality 2nd pairings we should do good.

Smyth might also surprise some people with this year being his last as an Oiler. I think Smyth-Gordon-Hemsky/Jones will be an effective 3rd line.
