I dont think a high scoring offense minded team is ever going to do well in edmonton or in any nhl city.

Look at the devils, kings, bruins. These teams have phenomenal goalie play and balance through out their lineup. All lines are two way lines and really have no weaknesses anywhere on defense weather it is forwards or defense man. As boring as this type of hockey is to watch sometimes it is winning hockey.

EDM right now is built like a capitals team . Immense offensive upside but players rarely willing to do the dirty work on both ends of the ice tow in. Hall has improved in that capacity immensely, RNH and eberle are yet to get there. Yak may never get there.

You need your best offensive players to also be responsible on d. Those are the teams that win.
