That's 8 wingers who are 3rd liners or better, plus Wilson who really should be in 3rd line role if we don't want to **** up his development. We could lose two of those guys and still not have any holes on our roster. Erskine would in theory be traded in a deal for his replacement, so no problem there, and we have Grubauer in the minors who can take Neuvy's spot if need be.

Oilers would love Brouwer. Something around Smid and Brouwer?
For sure. A lot of us on the Caps board were praying Smid would make it to free agency this summer.
