The Oilers have been incredibly streaky under MacT, and alot of that is because they're young. You could see them sag last night, and against St. Louis after the Blues got a couple of quick ones.
But there's alot to like.
Ales Hemsky looks like he's going to blow by the 50 points I predicted by the All Star break.
Ryan Smyth has moved to center and done well.
Bergeron has been solid.
Semenov looks as good as he always has to me.
Brewer is struggling, but still has so much natural talent that he can make up for many mistakes.
Torres is a beauty.
I remain on Shawn Horcoff's side.
York is starting to get a point a game or so.
Staios and Smith are solid.
Reasoner has been exceptional.
They'll come out blazing Thursday, and give Detroit a run on Saturday too.
imo this team has alot of high end talent, very young talent, but it's there.
I'm excited about this team and this season.
I agree. Oilers have ton of talent but no experiences. As season progresses, they should get better and better.
