Marincin is also a dman with only a quarter of Lander's # of NHL games under his belt... apples and oranges.

Lander isn't expected to put up big offensive numbers at the NHL level but he wasn't physical enough, fast enough, good enough on the dot or good enough defensively to MAKE the Oilers keep him up.

Hopefully he can still continue plugging away and improving his game and can become at least a 4th line fixture. Seems like a nice guy and I'm pulling for him but I think it's going to be an uphill struggle if he doesn't do something at an above average level.
