Yes, he is so much more skilled at "the dump" and he ability to look lost in his own end warrants the kudos of all his fans.

Staios should be paying Strudwick - without him Staios would be the sole owner of the "past his prime" award on the back end.

If this makes any sense I'm not seeing it.

Heres an analogy.

The guy can't swim, so make sure to throw him in the deep end with the sharks so at least the dying is quick

This is exactly what the Oilers are doing to Struds. Great Analogy!

Actually no . Its a rather simplistic and obvious analogy that belittles the intention of the thread and the efforts of the player .

Ask yourself this Merry ... which Oilers would you say have not performed significantly worse than your expectations at the start of the season ? In other words name the players that have at least met your expectations . When doing that evaluation please take into account the role you imagined the player assuming on the team prior to the start of the season . Considering the seasons of Hemsky and Souray writeoffs due to injury , I would say Penner , Potulny , Gagner , Smid and probably Strudwick and Staios .

Not that those guys have been world beaters . That was never the point of the thread . Perhaps if I put it this way you will understand .... Strudwick has surpassed my (low) expectations for his play this season . Not many guys on the team have come even close to that .
