That still leaves an empty spot on the actual fourth line for as much as the first month, unless Taylor Hall works out as a centre. If he doesn't, are the Oilers just screwed? Do they just bite the bullet and pray for RNH's return? What if Gordon or Gagner gets hurt two weeks in? Then what?
This team really needs some veteran depth at that position, and there still is some out there. I bet there are players that would accept tryouts. Costs nothing, and it's not like there are a bunch of Oilers centres chomping at the bit they would be taking time away from at camp.
I think a waiver pickup is coming up, there really isnt anyone worth inviting or signing.
