I think the biggest thing is a changing of the defense stylistically. MacT has talked about it every time he's asked, he doesn't want the big immobile can't pass worth a damn defensive d-men, he wants guys who can move the puck up to the forwards and I think he's gone about adding that. It was a major problem for the Oilers last year and if this group can move the puck better then it'll help the offense a lot because it will allow the skill to actually be skillful. Remains to be seen how it all works out but the man seems to know what he wants to accomplish.
