Edmonton Oilers winger David Perron was on Oilers Now with Colour Analyst Bob Stauffer on Tuesday afternoon and he gave some insight on the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Perron talked about how the teams in the post-season are the examples the Oilers need to look up to heading into next season. Chicago was a team the winger said the Oilers could model their game after.
Chicago beat Perron’s former team, the St. Louis Blues, four games to two in their opening-round series.
“Those teams that are there, they’re going to want to be there next year and they’re not going to want to give their spots away,” Perron said. “It’s going to be up to us to work hard to get to the dance. There’s a ton of work here to be done and it starts with the first 15-20 games. We talked about it at the end of the year, we can’t just come into this season wondering what kind of team we’re going to have this year. We need to know right away. We need to be playing the way that we can. I think Chicago is the best example for us because it’s the style of play that can beat anything.”
