As fans we lose sight that the make up of a team needs more than the goalscorers and playmakers, you need crashers, and bangers, agitators.

This is why the formula for any team has to employ different styles. We over emphasize also that you don't need an all star team but you do need really elite players on your team then you can fill holes easier. Its painfully obvious watching these games how far the Oilers are just based on filling holes, and yet having elite talent to go up against other elite talent.

As for the New jersey to La comparisons not even close that was dirty hockey and stevens is one of my favourite all time players, but you had clutching, grabbing stick work, trapping. L.A. is just your old fashioned north-south style throw pucks at the net, cycle and beat you down
