Big men will bolster defense
With the addition of rookies Terrance Amorosa, Chris Forney and Scott Moldenhauer — all of whom were acquired in a trade with the San Diego Gulls — Murray said the Oilers will be much improved on defense from last year.
“I think our D core is looking really good,” Murray said. “The three guys we got from San Diego are all big and mobile. They shoot the puck a ton. We were lacking depth on defense last year and as of today we got that.
“As of right now, we have eight players here that could make good players for us. I am really optimistic and excited about this group.”
Tulsa coach Rob Murray says of this year's Oilers team: “I think on paper we put together a good team.”
