Can't speak to the defense or special teams, but from my perspective the Oilers look like they all want the pretty goal. I haven't seen the drive to the net, the wilingness to pay the price in front and score some ugly garbage goals. They count too.

The Oilers have become a lot like my Habs, a lot of smaller, faster players who stick to the perimeter and look for the perfect pass or that perfect shot. It doesn't work, particularly against a team with sound defensive zone systems.

Until the players (particularly the top 6) are willing to get their noses dirty, the goals won't come any easier.
