Just no composure to their game, look like they have no idea what they are doing on most nights. The Oilers are just a terrible, terrible, terrible hockey team. The Flames don't have any skill, but they are a much better hockey *team* right now.
The Oilers managed a win against the Habs but they looked very sloppy.
I lost count of how many puck battles they lost and they look confused in their own end more often than not.

The confusion may be as a result of the poor systems play but losing puck battles is a product of will and determination.

Lars Eller was right...the Oilers do look like a Junior team most nights in terms of the lack of structure.

Structure and determination are qualities the Flames have in spades.
They are a much tougher team to play against at this point.

Hopefully that changes...sooner rather than later.
