A team built and run like the Blues will beat up on a team like built and run like the Oilers all the time.
Why do we do so well against Chicago? Because they play like the Oilers and guess what we can beat teams like that.
Too bad the majority of teams in the west are big teams who love to grind out wins.
I have been saying this on these boards for years that the majority of "fans" want the 80s Oilers back and when the management heard this they decided to try and build that team again the only problem is that it is 2013 and that style won't work.
They are a bit of a confused group though because they went out last year after grabbing Yakupov and drafted a bunch of bruisers, btw most of you guys hated that..like really hated, so while they have this current group of small,skilled and fast forwards they seem to think that maybe we just might need some size at some point. Not only just size but guys who are not afraid to use it either.
