We always hear that a player needs to find a role, accept that role and then excel at it if they want to be a difference maker. The lucky ones get to be goal scorers or point producers, but they are a rarity. The majority of players who stay in the league for an extended period of time have to find a role, and excel at it.

The Oilers had yesterday off and today they did an off-ice workout and some film study. They will be back on the ice tomorrow at Millenium Place, SMACKDOWN is at Rexall, and you can bet that Tom Renney will be want to focus on a few areas. Faceoffs is an obvious weakness right now, but there are other areas that he need work.
