I just have a quick question...I noticed that the Oilers have been rather successful in molding fringe players into decent defensemen. Some that I have in mind are Staios, Ulanov, Butenschon, Robertsson, Ferguson, and Brown. Despite an obvious lack of talent, the Oilers staff always seem to get the most out of them.

The question is, what are the similarities between the above mentioned six, and what style of defenseman are the easiest to mold for the Oilers? The reason I'm asking is that Ference could become another good defenseman if he fits in with the Oilers system.
