We need a puck moving D-man!! Not just to improve the powerplay but to improve the offense period. Smyth's nice goal from Dvo was created by a terrific outlet pass from Bergeron.

That outlet pass is so critical and allows the forwards to come through the neutral zone with lots of speed. That's Oiler's Hockey!!

When a forward is coming at you with speed it really keeps the opposing defense on their heels and creates offense.

Admittedly I'm biased being from Lloydminster, but a huge reason Ottawa has the offense they have is b/c of guys like Redden making that great first pass out of their own end. Ask any player how much this helps and they'll agree its soooo important.

D-man, D-man, D-man!!!!!
