Whitney despite his skating issues had no problems moving the puck and had a half decent shot from the point. We need a guy with a bomb who is a threat to score at least 10 goals/30 points a season. Right now the entire Oilers blue line combined with callups has produced 75 points. That's not good enough when you compare it to playoff teams. For example Boston has 118 points from their d, Anaheim has 106 points, LA 95 points, Chicago 151 points, St. Louis 147. Another way to look at it is that the Blues two highest scoring dmen Pietrangelo and Shattenkirk have more points then the entire Oiler defensive core.
