Petry-Smid look really good. Horcoff looks good too, he really needs to finish though.

Ugh, flashes of good things. Petrell and Belanger have been lights out on the PK, Peaches and Smid are kicking ass, Horc's doing a bang-up job.

The flashes of mediocrity and some bad things too.

The biggest negative thing I'm seeing is that Whitney still isn't mobile. He looks to be an okay bottom pairing, PP guy, but he can't play 20+ minutes anymore. It's a shame.

Potter doesn't belong out there.

Hartikainen...I've barely noticed him. I'd rather Paajarvi on that 3rd line. He's a checker anyway, and skates like the wind to boot.

Don't worry I didn't know who he was until last year

In NHL 13 Eberle should have a backhand shot rating of 150

The entire team has been off so far. Everyone is talking about how many players were playing hockey, but I mean none of them have played against real competition in a few weeks. They're trying to shake the rust.

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 seriously put that much on this game. Not a good idea.

Maybe it's time to give Horcoff some spot duty on the second line and try to get Hemsky/Yakupov going.

Probably right on both counts. Shortened season, no preseason, not playing for months, etc, etc, etc.

Re: Whitney

The good news is we can replace Whitney at the end of the season. The bad news is we have to replace Whitney at the end of the season.

It seems to be a race between him and Gagner for worst player of the game.

Horcoff's making a case to take Gagner's spot on the 2nd line

I would say it's been a pretty even game. The Canucks usually embarrass us in Vancouver, so I would say there has been some improvement.

We are making good plays with the puck and getting some good chances. I would like to see us pick up the pace and start using our speed a little more though.
