They drafted/acquired just the right amount of skill to make it work.

Guys like Hudler, Baertschi, bring a decent amount of skill - but it goes hand-in-hand with solid cerebral 2-way players like Monahan and Backlund. Then add the grit of guys like Glencross and Jones. They have finishers too - Stempniak and Cammalleri (bench). It's a perfect mix of players specialized to certain roles. I've mentioned this before. Whereas the Oilers have 7-8 skill players - the Flames have 2-3 guys specialized within each role, able to bring something to the lines they're on.
