Gretzky was commenting on the game last night in Edmonton. Said it reminded him of playing against Montreal in 1979 when the Oilers were a bunch of youngsters. They were all excited and then lost 7-2 or 7-3.

It takes time for the team to gel. They've got a bunch of high end talent and now it's just finding the intangible pieces (the 3rd liners, the grinders etc) who fill out the roster. He feels good about the state of the team and it's only a matter of time before they become a force. The guys will put it together.
