Oilers Believe In Themselves

from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun,

“I remember playing Columbus last year at about the 20-game mark and they were a team that was well below .500 but you could tell they were a team that was playing well and about to make a charge,” said winger Taylor Hall.

“I feel like we’re on that verge. We’re sticking with teams that have a lot of skill and we’re working just as hard as them. I have a different feel with this group.”

They all do. They know more than anybody what a bad team looks like and they don’t see it in this year’s room.

“As hard as it is to see and as hard as it is to believe, I strongly believe that we’re playing better than we were last year,” said winger Jordan Eberle. “We’re out-shooting opponents, we’re out-chancing opponents, we’re out-playing opponents, but the wins aren’t coming.

“That’s when you start to doubt yourself, and we can’t have that. You can’t have that doubt that the system doesn’t work because it does, and I have full confidence that we’re going to start winning and it’s going to come in bunches.”
