Player who has surprised you with his play this season?
Player who has disappointed you with his play this season?
Strongest area of the team? (offense/D/Goaltending)
Thoughts on coaching and system in place?
The neutral zone could use some attention
Positives from the Oilers so far?
The special teams (apart from gaining the zone on the PP) and goaltending
Areas where the Oilers need to improve?
Skill guys need to make simple plays sometimes to keep the opposition honest. Less cute setups, shoot the puck. Defensemen need to be more poised and move their feet in the D-zone when they have the puck, make better D to D passes. Finishing checks, I don't care what size you are you don't have to kill the guy.
Overall grade for the Oilers?
Revised season outcome for the Oilers (in terms of position in the NHL/West they finish)?
If you want to do individual grades, feel free.
I think they've got a team that can make the playoffs, we'll see what happens.
