The MacT quote that resonates with me the most, is from the offseason when he said "You have to be at least a threat to score"

The only player that i felt that was a consistent threat to score was Gernat.

Roy had flashes, and i think he'll be fine. Ewanyk, who at the WHL was known to take a lot of shifts off. When you saw him score, you'd think he could do it every shift because his goals were "pure effort" goals. But it would happen so rarely.

It was like none of our players were even skating out there.

As for Calgary, I think their team mantra this year will be "We don't care if you win games, but you better try your hardest"

During the Oiler's first few bad seasons, i recall them losing some games and would console myself that "At least the effort was there". I think that's Calgary right now.

As for the Oilers here and now. The rookies lacked skill and effort. With some of the D, i think they were getting frustrated with the forwards and would try and do too much. (I noticed several times Davidson would be leading the rush because the forwards weren't skating for **** out there)
