pffft! Armchair GM's indeed. Anyone of you guys have any NHL experience and know how to win? Nope. just a whole bunch of Armchair GM/fans.

The Oilers 5 v 5 is fine. They're in a slump now, but they were doing fantastic five games ago and they will again. What's killing them is not the PP, its the PK. If the PK can hold off the powerplays, then the Oiler win or tie these past several games. you asked DB how can the PK improve? Reasoner. We're missing our #1 faceoff guy, our best checking centre and PK dude. And his name isn't Marchant, its Reasoner.

As for the PP, I have faith that Lowe's signing of Oates will pay off. It just takes more than 3 games for Oates to mesh with the PP unit. Hopefully he can help direct where people should be and he should be able to help the faceoff percentages.
