The Oilers bottom 6 was/is the worst of both worlds... it was soft AND couldn't score last season. They need upgrades in both facets to make this team successful.

If Eager/Jones can make comebacks, that will help a hell of a lot. Joensuu could be a big help as well... but no way to count on that. I think the bottom 6 still needs more scoring skills as well though. If MacT strikes out in meaty players that can score... he has to at least focus on upgrading the skill level down there even if that means some smaller cheap contract players with decent hands. There were/are many of those available in the UFA market. Hopefully he steps up and takes advantage while he can.
