TBH I don't really buy this. Neither Arco or Lander can really slot into a 2C and doing so would be disastrous to the lines production. So they are 4th liners here because they also clearly don't slot in over Gordon.

But seriously in recent games the Oilers have been auditioning players like Smyth as 4th line center.

There is an available role, Arco and Lander haven't auditioned well enough in it.

I really want Lander to succeed as well. I see virtually no reason to think Arco will. He's far too limited with size and frame to be much help in 4th center tasks.
