Robert Nilsson skated with the Oilers today and may play tomorrow night against Los Angeles. His boxcars (12gp, 1-3-4 -12) stand out for some bad reasons (minus 12 is a team worst, there are men like Ryan Potulny who have been more effective) and many fans believe the Oilers need Ryan Stone more than Nilsson back in the lineup tomorrow night.
Can this really be how this ends? Robert Nilsson has an exceptional amount of talent and has in fact had a good NHL season with the Oilers. Is this a case of lost confidence or something more? Robert Nilsson’s 5×5/60 number in 2007-08 was 2.37.
What the hell happened?
