Point stands still... Why the hell can a team with Brad Isbister and Mike York on the secpond line make the dance without a single good defenceman and an over the hill Salo...

Most of those 2000's Oilers teams had virtually no talent aside from Weight, who was traded in 02.
Those teams weren't that bad.

They had some fantastic role players that made the team very successful playing conservative defensive systems, a base core which helped make the 2006 run possible.

But grinding out a regular season to get into the playoffs is different than grinding out wins against stacked teams who paid out twice as much on roster talent in the playoffs.
