I wouldn't be suprised if this is as enlightening for the Oilers fans as Bure's first game was for us so many years ago.
I predict the Canucks will get Tarasenkoed.
Yes, I just invented a new verb.
BTW St. Louis looks scary good if they can now score.
I'll give the Canucks a pass if they get blown out tonight, but they need to get their crap together next game.
I'm a big Yakupov fan, but from every game I've ever seen of him, I've never seen him do anything close to what Bure did that game. If he can't do that against junior players, how is he going to do it against NHLers? (watch him do it now)

edit: should be noted, Bure was 20 when he made his NHL debut, Nail's only 19. I expect when he develops a bit more he can take his game up yet another level, but he does not have that extra step that Bure had. Nobody since Bure has had that.
