It's strange though, if you watch the Oilers play and beat good teams, it's not by playing "defensive hockey", it's by forechecking the crap out of them so as to wear down their defence and take away their ability to use their firepower. Joe Sakic isn't worth much on the scoreboard in his own end. This of course also includes hustling back when you need to, so it is a balanced gameplan, but there were so many times last year, when that one more goal woulda just made the other team hang their heads and quit, rather than keep going and come from behind by 2 because we're standing around at their blue-line waiting. I guess what it comes down to is, we all know the system is faulty, and want it to be fixed, we just have different concepts of what will do that.
