To me, it's two main things:

The Oilers are missing a Hossa. Ottawa has a huge advantage here, one more big-time scorer than us.

The depth players: You've got Smolinski, you've got Havlat playing on the 3rd line, you've got Varada, you've got Mike Fisher and Peter Schaefer. That is some serious depth. All guys that can get it done offensively, we have way more question marks in this regard than they do. They also have no defensive slouches on that team, so it's not like they're sending out a bunch of fire-wagon players, these guys can play ANY system, and that is their strength.
