You think the difference between an annual bottom-5 finish and teams who make the playoffs consistently is leadership? The Oilers suck. Eager, Brown, and Hordichuk suck as hockey players. Hordichuk is the least awful of the 3 and he's the one sitting the most. The can't score at 5v5 to save their life and a 4th for Brown is the answer?

This isn't a team of callups and misfits. This is exactly the team Tambellini built. Every player on the roster was either brought in by him, or identified as a player they want in their starting lineup.

Continuing to pick 1st or top-5 isn't going to improve the team. Blah blah Pittsburgh Chicago.. They also had a talented supporting crew. Tambo has spent to the cap or said the playoffs are his goal every year he's been a GM.
Since leadership can't be measured in a statistic of course it's not important.
