A few things:

Smyth still looks hesitant in his new role. On one play he was coming down the wing and when he hit the blue line, it's almost like he realized that he was out of position and that screwed him up. I'm not blaming or anything, but I think it's going to take alot more time for him to adjust.

Also, the Oilers main problem was evident again last night. The defense plays good defensively. The problem is getting the puck up to the forwards (I believe Dawgbone mentioned this in a previous thread). I saw Staios make one of the worst passes I ever seen. On the other side, when Hemsky or Horcoff or Reasonner carried the puck out of the zone, thought good things happened.

Anyways, good game for the Oilers. Sabres played really well also..They have forwards that can really fly.
