The Oilers are focused on bringing back the winning attitude from years past.
Edmonton has not made it to the playoffs since 2006 and has not finished higher than fourth since then, either. "This organization has a legacy of winning which got drowned out in the past few seasons," Jordan Eberle said. "Obviously the big thing we want to get back is that winning attitude that was here in the '80s. I think it starts with a real intense desire not to lose two in a row. A real focus on that. Good teams seldom lose two in a row." The Oilers certainly have enough high-end offensive talent, but the question remains whether they'll be able to keep the puck out of their own net enough.
