Ya no kidding... the Oilers need more players who can play C competently and if they have some that can play multiple positions well... that's just gravy.

Might as well comment here that it would have been nice to have Nichushkin as an extra LW.

Nichushkin-Hall-Yakupov
Perron-Gagner-Eberle


My statement to the rest of the league in a couple years time:

Stop that 1st line *****es.

Alas he's not here and the Oilers don't have quite the same flexibility that they could have.
