2nd Favourite Team

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>SammyT_51</b></div><div>Ceci is lost case and needs some team without too much expectation to succeed and playing behind Larsson and Bouchard would help. Leafs cant yet relly on Liljegren for top-4 spot, so putting ceci in there would be not a good idea, but Benning is better and IDK how much edmonton wants him, but Ive seen a lot of ACGMs trading him and despite my dislike of him, Id give him a shot and its lesser risk than Ceci in there. It helps both teams. If Oilers can recoup Ceci, they have solid 3 right shot Dmen. If Liljegren is ready for top-4 minutes Id just keep Ceci on 3rd pair.. Benning was mishandled a lot too so thats why lost cases..</div></div>
The Oilers need Benning this year to hold down a top-4 spot. From the verbal from coaches, Bouchard will start the year in the AHL, he certainly isn't ready for a top-4 spot yet. The Oilers have lots of candidates for 3RD (Jones, Bear, Persson, Bouchard), so Ceci is of no interest to them.
I don't see Benning as being a "lost case".
