I like the quote from the scout. "I'm not going to give away the store here, but there are no other teams in the league playing the [Edmonton] system."
That's a very good article and it's bang on. There are other things, like the zone entry against a trap style defense (particularly on the PP where it's a given) that the Oilers are similarly horrendous at and it seems to stem from a bad system in use.

Krueger seems to be trying too aggressively different approaches to things as a brand new coach in the league, where he should be building a solid, simple foundation and then building outwards from there with minor, slow tweaks towards the less common. At the very least, at this point given the problems the team has, he should be reeling things back in toward the simpler and safer.
