Apparently, so will the Blues.
It's a myth that the Oilers' powerplay was better when Weight was here.
In the 00-01 season (our last with Doug Weight), the team was 21st ranked at 14.8%.
In the 01-02 season, the Oil ranked 16th and converted 15.3%.
In the 02-03 season, the Oilers ranked 19th, even though the percentaged dropped to 14.5%.
So far this season we're 25th and 13.2%... the current 25th place rank is the first time the post-Weight Oilers have had a PP worse than when Weight was here!
Maybe we miss Janne... or Comrie... or Carter... but whatever the powerplay is missing, it's not Doug Weight.
