I don't care how much BS "sandpaper" or "grit" or "intangible" nonsense he brings. This guy is never going to be an Oiler. 4C is Lander's job to lose, and he'd have to show spectacularly poorly in camp to lose it. I'm not saying it's ideal, but it is what it is. This is Lander's year to show us what he's got as an NHLer. We need to give him that chance.
Before we even hired Acton Stauffer was pumping the wheels. Eakins has dealt with him, so who knows.
It's not like they are giving Acton the job and it's not like there is a guy that is proven who is getting over looked.
