Aren't the young guns as good as we think they are? Is it the system we play? Is it coaching?
Our young guns are a lot like an infant Superman, every once in awhile they'll get up and fly around the room punching holes through walls ... but most of the time they just fall down a lot.

Eventually, they'll grow out of it. Until then us Oilers' fans are left teetering between dream and dread.
