I've long been a fan of Liam Reddox. Despite a rather long list of "yeah but's" on his resume, the Oilers keep bringing him back as insurance and he keeps moving up the in-season depth chart. For a team looking for some sandpaper and an eye on what happens when the puck is going the wrong way, the little ginger might surprise.
