"“Duncan Keith was more important to the Oilers than the fan’s thought in the room. Not saying Conner and Leon are not leaders but they lead by play on the ice. When adversity happens there needs to be a voice. Defence is just not good enough; Barrie is needed for powerplay and puck moving (love his game); Nurse needs 20 minutes a night regardless of pay, will improve on that alone; Bouchard needs more time as a 5/6 guy. “At the end of the day, management knows this year and next two years are crucial and fans need to believe in that.” — Dave Muskens"
You’re right, Dave, the players held a player-only meeting after the loss to LA because there is no veteran presence on this team, none at all……/sarcasm.
