The bright spot here, if there is, it's more important to be better on defense than offense. So the Oilers have a good base at the moment, assuming they can keep it up, they just need to put the puck in the net.
I think the 1th best is in the goaltending department, not defence. This team has been consistently outshot, sometimes by wide margins, other times by ridiculous margins. I think it will come around, but our team defence has been horrible, and Whitney and Potter in particular have been disasters for most of the young year.
Saying all that, I do believe the entire team will get better, much better, as the young guys adapt to their new roles, some injured players come back, and the system starts to sink in.
