Check out Bruce's recent post on the the age and games played distribution throughout the Oilers roster.
Oil Droppings: The missing link
I think we need to find a checking centerman for the third line who fits into the age gap that Bruce identified. This would ease the distance between the young skilled forwards and the aged veteran defensive minds. Mike Peca no longer fits into this role but if we could find a similar speedy, strong, faceoff specialist type of guy to fill this role - Tambellini, it would be much appreciated.
