There is something special brewing in Edmonton. The chemistry between all the individual lines is apparent, the D played very well, and the breakouts were considerably better than I have witnessed the last couple of seasons. RNH is the real deal. This kid is only going to be great. I was completely impressed tonight by this team, and I haven't typed that in a long time.
I am loving Khabby's play! So awesome to see him play with confidence. I knew he would bounce backthis year! You deserve it Khabby, some huge saves tonight.
Also, besides the goal......Corey Potter is a gem. I am loving his play this season. I hope he is an Oiler for awhile. Also enjoying the skating and poise of Barker. I watched him a lot tonight and he is gaining confidence every game.
Up front, Horcoff and Belanger deserve props. Both guys always come back on defense. Kudos.
Also, what can you say about the kid line? Love them! Great win Oilers!
We are officially the new Minnesota of the northwest, with the exception of a few snipers !
Oh god... please no.
It's good to see Renney is teaching defense first though. Hopefully in a few years we don't just have offensive stars, but complete players.
I'm glad for Khabi so far. The guy lost a bit of respect from most fans (including myself) in the last couple years. He already has his cup but I'd like to see him continue to redeem himself and close out his career in style.
Everyone seems to be buying in on D now here at Game 7 of the season. And I think in turn, Khabby plays better because of that. I know Dubie on his backside helps too but he's been frustrated with the lack of help back there in previous years.
Might be time for Linus to head back to OKC, I didn't miss him hanging on to the puck then giving it away all night, tonight. They didn't get a point tonight but I thought Belanger, Gagner, Paajarvi were great tonight.
Good solid win by a team that is adjusting to the system, I was concerned as how the slowness of our D was exposed at times, need to have a solid game plan when we come up against a fast team, otherwise teams are gonna find a way to attack that weakness. But saying that, we won baby!
