This Oilers team has many people scratching their heads. Questions abound about their skill, their 'crust', hell even their jam. Is there enough physicality on this team to stand up to other more physical teams? Are the small skilled players taking the right (and enough) steps that are furthering their development. Can our blue line survive night after night without Sheldon Souray? With the injury to Shawn Horcoff, their only complete player, one might think with pessimism in relation to these questions.
I am going to go out on a limb and say that once the flu runs its course, with or without Horcoff, this team will get its shiz together and OTC will put his stamp on this team. Just give them a few weeks.
