Certainly the Oilers strength is their group of forwards this season. If they had the Sens excellent blue line corps backed with Lalime, I'd say they were pretty frickin good... but as noted, they are lacking in both those areas today. Though I don't think Salo is as bad as many seem to feel... in fact, I think the guys is actually pretty good.

I think one of the big errors in comparing forwards, is that you speculate a bit much by saying, if the Oiler players play as well as they are thought to be able to, or as with Dovorak, did at one time... while the Sens have proven they are capable of that level of play by doing it for the past couple of years. Brad Isbister is just too big a question mark at this time to in all fairness put his name anywhere near Hossa. I would hesitate before posting something like that... heh...

Lot's of new faces, and some interesting prospects in the wings. All in all, an exciting time to be an Oiler fan.
