Beauty goal by Eberle but I'm still horrified by what I'm seeing. The Canucks aren't really doing... anything tonight and they're still winning. Whitney looks like he's skating in mud. That Kassian goal pisses me off just thinking about it.

The Oilers have tremendous skill but the lack of muscle is so, so, so apparent.

And by the same team I mean the one with the fantastic Jordan Eberle on it.

No, we still notice.

That goal was a beauty.

I don't think that's fair.

The whole team has played pretty well. We need to remember there are two teams on the ice and that the Canucks are pretty damn good.

Petry is MVP so far. No doubt. He's doing everything but scoring.

Eberle is the best player on this team, without a doubt. Now, and down the road.

Pretty good period overall. Too bad there had to be that one breakdown when the Sedins were on the ice... and by that I mean too bad Whitney and Potter had to be out there against them.

This is typical Oilers hockey...

And by that I mean start off slow for 75% of the game and turn it up late. I guarantee the third is going to be something else

Horcoff's had a pretty OK game but his lack of finish is looming large right now. Three point blank chances.

Is it me or does Hemsky have the worst case of nerves of anyone on the ice? Wow is he ever off his game, and when he gets near the net he's making MPS style plays with the puck, weak shots from the outside.

Not to mention it looks like Lou has decided to steal his job back from Schnieder. Vancouver fans are going to be bipolar until this situation gets sorted.

Finally, finally EDM, more specifically Eberle uses his speed. Why they don't put the pedal to the metal against Vancouver's D (like the Ducks did last night) is beyond me. They have so much speed, use it. I'll chalk it up to first game jitters/trying to gain traction. Hopefully they wake up and come out blazing in the final frame.

As for Luongo, if he was in net last night, he'd have gotten shelled as well. The Ducks had a dozen odd man rushes at least. Tonight, the D has been good. I really believe if Schneider was in net for this game he'd be fine.

Yeah, I guess technically he's right, but his tone of voice made it sound like Eberle fluked it.

Loving Petry's game tonight. Fourth line has also been pretty decent.

Pretty sure the Oilers are the most physical team on the ice tonight.

Not that it won't be apparent eventually, but it's definitely not a factor right now.

Man that Eberle goal sure was sweet. I have 100$ on the oilers.
With that said as an oiler fan. I am ****in dissepointed. There is no ****ing preassure, noone on the oilers seem to want to win this game.
Its ****ing pathetic it looks like last year all over again.
I so hope that the third period wont look like this.
We are facing a team that got blown out by the ducks,, we have 4 first round offensve picks playing against a squad who have one game in their feet basicly.. this should have showed already if it isnt showing in the third well am loosing a hundred and got damnit its not what i would call progress...

You think so? The Oilers look disjointed to me, the Canucks are going at half speed basically. The bottom 6 has been solid along with Petry and Smid, the Schultzs have been ok but overall, the team has been a bit of a mess tonight. It's kind of expected for the first game so it's no reason to panic.
