...Which would explain why the Oilers did fairly badly. Teams that aren't very skilled can still win because of good systems and coaching, and every team was pretty much more individually skilled than these guys, who probably mostly project at the top end to be (still useful) third/fourth liners.

That said, did Nelson say this before or after the team lost every game?
