And we will finish no higher than 7th or 8th if we can't play well against teams in our own division.

Sorry, it was a bit harsh now that I look back on it.

I think I'm less upset with the attitude and more with the apparent lack of reason. I have been a poster on (and fan of) these boards for almost four years and the level of discussion just seems to be lacking in the Vancouver game related threads.

I expect the guys to come out and beat every team, because I think if they're on their game they can do it. However the doom and gloom after one game followed by sweeping generalizations about individual players rubs me the wrong way. Not because I don't think the players can take it but because it lowers the intelligence level of the dialogue, one of the most redeeming qualities of the Oilers board.

But I must say it felt good to get an emotional outburst out there
