MVP? Dubnyk. Not even close really, he's been keeping us in pretty much every game.

Player who has surprised you with his play this season? Dubnyk. I wasn't expecting him to be bad, but not this good either. Honorable mention with Gagner, who has been far and away the best forward we have.

Player who has disappointed you with his play this season? Smyth. Hasn't done much but be a liability. Honorable mention to Whitney. I wasn't expecting as much from him though, so Smyth wins.

Strongest area of the team? (offense/D/Goaltending) Goaltending, easily.

Thoughts on coaching and system in place? I really wish we were more aggressive on the puck. Its hard to criticize so early, so that's all I'll say.

Positives from the Oilers so far? Gagner emerging, Hemsky returning to form, Dubnyk showing he's a legit starter, Yakupov and Schultz having good rookie outings.

Areas where the Oilers need to improve? Puck control.

Overall grade for the Oilers? C-

Revised season outcome for the Oilers (in terms of position in the NHL/West they finish)? Said 8th/9th before, now I think 10th-13th in West.
