Note: Both Steve-O and Racki are away on vacation. We’ve left the ship on autopilot. So if some kick ass news happens like trading for Kovalchuk, pretend like you heard it here first, and pretend like this post still makes sense Racki is back September 10th.
This is the fifth among a few recurring posts where I break down and discuss different parts of the Oilers and how I think they are going to perform this coming year, their strengths and weaknesses and where we could use some help. They are can be found here.
We are royally fuckered.
The PK forwards and D:
Seriously. Not good. Lets trade our other good face off center and possible PK’er for picks…and not replace him.
Three of the four forwards have experience. So long as Moreau and Pisani haven’t lost a step, they should be fine along with Horcoff.
Again, some experience on D.
It would be nice to have another center that could win a face off and know what to do in his own zone. That is a serious black hole on this team.
See weaknesses. A FUCKING CENTER.
WE NEED A CENTER. Unless Poo takes a massive step its not looking good.
