The case for Brule

Let me start by saying Ottawa has more than ample centremen and, before the puck has dropped on the season, BMurray is faced with some 'tough' decisions. Giggles, Ronald Regin, ZappaCosta, ZBad all appear to be ready to start the season in Kanata but with the Oilers placing Creme Brule on waivers it got my brain going.

GIlbert is young. Gilbert is fast and GIlbert has shown an ability to play hard-nosed (break your pelvic bone however) hockey. My thinking is this.

Pick him up, he'd become out 4th line centreman and we allow (even though he looks 'ready') Mika to play a full season of North-American hockey in Bingo. He'll have a great coach, will play real minutes and come next year will be full-blown ready to make an impact (at the age of 19!). Worst case with Creme is he flops and goes to Bingo. Best case, he flourishes in his 'new role' and pots 17 goals. He is 24 and was billed as "Brule vs. Crosby" at one point.

Giggles, Ronald and Zappa start the season with Creme on the 4th line....change them up as Walrus sees fit.
