Never watched a Oiler game have you. In the 54 games Peckham played last year he logged in 144 minutes of PK time. The Oilers had the 14th PK last year, it wasn't Peckham's PK was the problem, in matter of fact it was outstanding, it was even strength play. Niklas Hjalmarsson is a good shot blocker, but Schultz and Smid are better.

Note last year Edmonton's D was snake bit with injuries and were dropping like flies at one point and they still didn't do that bad. In part it was due to some outstanding goal tending which disappeared the latter half of the season and the emergence of Petry and Smid as solid D's. The biggest problem the Oilers had was scoring at even strength. Some of the media in Edmonton are pushing for a better D, as they should be, but they' re desperate and are willing to take any plug.
