The Flyers are my favriote team but I have always been an oilers fan , i consider them my western conference team.

The oilers real problem is this.

1. Not enough talent on this team.
2. What talent that is on the team is not complimentary of one another.
3. The team is too young and too inexperienced
4. The expectations they are facing are clearly unrealistic.

RNH , Hall Eberle, Yak are all great in only 1 end of the ice. but they are all great under 1 circumstance and that is with the puck on their stick. They literally can't play without the puck. The best out of that unit without the puck is probably yakupov.

IN that sense those these highly talented players are worthwhile their are clearly too many cooks in the kitchen.

Also there are no 2 way players on this team. None of the Forwards can play two way and none of the Dmen can either. It is really pathetic. RNh Hall and Eberle may score a ton of points with the pp they get dominated in EV situations by real teams. You can't have those 3 togethr on a line ever because of how soft they play. Get a power forward for hall and RNH that is a 2 way player and watch that line flourish and dominate.
