This is the fourth among a few recurring posts where I break down and discuss different parts of the Oilers and how I think they are going to perform this coming year, their strengths and weaknesses and where we could use some help. They are here, here and here.
I am not one of those people who blame Mac-T for the power play. He’s not the one on the ice. I realize that Simpson was here to draw up some plays, but still the guys are N.H. fucking L. players and should know how to run a power play.
And yes fans…they do know that they have to shoot to score. Your not telling them anything new.
Here is what I would have on the first PP:
And second PP:
Yeah yeah yeah. I realize that these are just the top two lines. But if it works why not?
We have a play maker. Hemsky makes power plays go. He needs to be the straw in this drink.
We also have bombs from the point. Souray and Vish both can hammer the puck.
Quit forcing it to the point. Just because a hard shot is there don’t always go there. THE OTHER TEAM REALIZES THIS TOO.
Scorer. See forward post.
I don’t think this group will be bad on PP. It has the ability to be good. I’ll be happy with middle of the road. 15th in NHL.
