Oilers just need to up their level of desire to actually beat teams every single night and not just go through the motions by letting their skills and talent try and win games... it's just not enough.
Looking at Columbus roster, they look a lot like the Oilers of the MacT era. Hardly any stars there, but a lot of hard-working, two-way players who can grind the games. I would not be surprised if they make play-offs and upset one of the favorites on top of that.
