What gets lost in the transition is that the Oilers really do this a lot. Even guys like Jones here have scored many more goals than anywhere else. We actually make a lot of breakout transition plays and score a fair amount of our goals that way. Perron is a talented quick strike guy. Hands like Hemsky with better brains and more consistency is a way to look at it. Perron, much more than Hemsky, is going to make defenders have to make a play on him more often than not. The Perennial knock on Hemsky on a rush is he tries to do 3 cute things at once and blows his own tire on the rush.
I'm confused, Replacement is happy with something the Oilers management did? Surely I am dreaming.
