Definitely. Musil isn't a bad skater by any means, but he's not as mobile as Smid. I don't know how much I'd rely on him to move the puck out of the zone though. His outlet pass isn't as crisp as I'd like it to be. IMO, he'll basically be a much smarter, better skating version of what everyone was hoping Plante ideally might be able to be when we drafted him. Big, strong, reliable, and extremely good defensively.

Pair him up with one of Schultz, Petry, or Marincin and we've got a solid pairing.

Pair him with Schultz and he'll probably put up decent numbers for a defensive guy too. He'd lead the league in second assists.

4-2 win over Prince George today.

As far as Oilers prospects go, Ewanyk was +2 with an assist a couple minors, Musil is still pointless for the Oil Kings and was -2, and Moroz was scratched with an upper body injury (which may keep him out of the Subway Series as well).

Glad to see them pull out another victory after the loss to Kelowna. The goals aren't coming as easily as they did last year but the team is finally coming together.

To be fair, he was putting up points because he was playing lots of PP on a very bad team. Has he looked ok otherwise?

Yeah judging Musil on points is a pretty foolish game, since they've been on the road since he's been acquired I've only seen him in one game. And he looked fine, strong, and playing a simple game very well.

Has St.Croix's game away from the puck improved at all since last year? This may be a big indicator if he'll get a contract with the Rangers or not.

I stand corrected.

However any insight on his play away from the puck?

Not really a strong point. He is an offensive player and is used in all of those situations, top line, first unit pp etc. He doesnt play on the pk at all really. I dont think he is bad defensively, but he isnt big or particularly strong, so he is pretty much a top six guy unless he reinvents himself, but I dont know why anyone would want him to, he is probably the best player (offensive) on the team.

They play at home tomorrow. So that makes it more puzzling. They must of rented it out to another Edmonton sports team.

Ah this makes sense. There are a ton of tournaments in Calgary this weekend. The midget 15 teams (top 15 year olds that didn't make AAA) and I think a midget AA tournament.

Yeah, the NAIT hockey team is playing SAIT in Calgary this weekend. They're probably using the OK bus, and that's why it's at the Jube.

SAIT is playing NAIT tonight, NAIT is just using the Oil Kings bus.

The Oil Kings had an awful start tonight falling down 3-1 to the Raiders but they pushed back hard and tied it 3-3 before losing in OT.

No idea. Guy Flaming thinks Ewanyk may be out a while.

The Oil Kings defeated the Broncos 2-1 on the strength of two Lazar goals.

Fans are starting to come out in OK numbers. The attendance was just shy of 6000 tonight.

He had a solid shutdown game. The Broncos don't have a great offense so he just had to be steady.
