Skating and athleticism increases with greater levels of competition IMO.
I couldn't possibly agree with this more...
I would love to see us have the proper competition in place so that the spot isn't just given to him. However, as we have all said - this is the Oilers we are talking about here...
IMO, Drai makes the team to start the season, regardless of having the 2C we so desperately need....
