The reffing has been pretty bad, but it's expected in a tourny like this....Oh wait the NHL has trash reffing anyways, We know the pain also, trust me.

ala bruins.

Update: But still no need for gooning it up with 2 min left in the game, Why are the two oilers goons on the ice in a 5-2 game anyways?, Pretty dumb coaching, No need to send a message at this level.

Anyways, good game guys, GL in the next game.

Yup, it's unfortunate when a good game has the stain of **** reffing. Good job by the Nuck prospects.

Hah, the U of A game is on Tuesday. It wouldn't surprise me in the least to see the Bears shellack these guys.

First solid game from our guys. Enough upside on a few that the tourney wasn't completely useless I suppose.

Sucks not to get the win.

Third period decided by refs is extreme ********.

Should it surprise anyone? Don't the Bears usually beat the rookies?

Yeah, they do.

There will probably be some good natured chirping between former Oil Kings teammates Travis Ewanyk and Rhett Rachinski. Could be fun.

Nothing like three straight losses to numb up for the season.

Are you guys seriously evaluating players and prospect depth based on this tourney? This is one of many "evaluation" stations in a player's career and really, it's a relatively minor one. Essentially this gives the team a look at these guys so they can give them marching orders on areas to improve during the actual season, which matters way more than a summer exhibition tournament.

Can't wait to hear this tourney referenced later in the season as old grudges are dredged up.

Didn't Lander dominate this thing a couple years ago - now he's a whipping boy.

curmudgeon mode on: know who was the guy well known for being a good speaker? Ralph Krueger.
I honestly never thought Krueger was a good speaker, to me it was like listening to a salesman spit out a lot of words and never say anything of substance.

MacT was and is a Mac when it comes to speaking. Krueger is Mr. Positivity, not that there's anything wrong with that.

That's the thing I like about Eakins, though: it's not all peaches and cream. It's a nice change and I think an NHL coach has to be a hard ass.

Exactly, he was a story teller, just like the President to the South.

I like Eakins speaking style and presence. Might be the best change of the off-season.

I just got back from watching the Jets vs Oil and Oil vs Canucks.

Gatta say the Jets have some nice skill, some big physical players coming down the pipes.

All in all, there was only one player who stood out among the rest for me and that was Nurse. He already has some NHL abilities he just needs to fill out, his skating is very very good.

Marcincin was probably 2nd best, he has nice stick handling.

Klefbom has nice overall ability, but he need time. He was off with his passes, positioning, it might be an adjustment thing but he needs time for sure.

Musil/Gernat, they do nothing flashy as advertised, physical SAHD, Gernat more so than Musil .... still need a bit of development.

Khaira, nice size, good at separating, lousy skater.

Roy, has some nice skill set, be interested to see how he develops.

Kessy, better than I expected, big, mean, hits, fights. He's a ton better than Abney I'll tell yah.

Palazzese isn't a bad goalie, Cadorette not so much

Chase, isn't afraid to be physical or be a pest, goes to the front of the net.

Someone tell me more about Kyle Platzer? He scored a couple of goals, but was didn't really notice him otherwise.

Ty Bilcke had some nice forcheck/physical moments. Kinda fizzled out as the game went.

Didn't really notice much from anyone else. I'll go back n say that Nurse (for me) was the only prospect of note. Really like him.

Yeah but this is far from a primo Golden Bears squad. They've had lots better teams than this where they were untouchable.

But anyway I feel like cheering for the ol Bears squad, Its hard to like this Oilers replacements version. What did we get outscored in the tournament, 17-4? Something like that. Dismal.

Just watched the game..

The good
Marco Roy - This guy looks like a steal already. I think he should get a good look for making the team this year. I don't want them to rush him but I want him to get a good amount of pre-season games at least. Maybe even 9 regular season.. Possible candidate for World Juniors?
Jujhar Khaira - Just a solid player with good hockey sense and size
Kyle Platzer - Not as good as last game but scored and stood out to me again
Brandon Davidson - First period wasn't great but he started jumping in the play and making passes instead of flipping the puck into open areas
Travis Ewanyk - Very noticeable.. good fighter and pest. Not a bad skater either and got some pucks to the net
Darnell Nurse - I'm happy with his performance. He was always jumping up in the play and skating well. Noticed a good hipcheck also.
The goalie - Best performance yet from a goalie. Made some great saves and didn't deserve the 5 GA.

The ok
Andrew Miller - Good skater and had the puck lots. Some good plays, some bad. Still disappointed.. I expected more.
Greg Chase - Like Ewanyk he's always running his mouth but I still don't have a great read on how his skating and puck skills are.
Kale Kessy - He's playing his role and using his size not just with physical play but he seems decent at protecting the puck

The bad
Martin Gernat - Slow skater and slow decision maker. Looks awkward out there.
Cam Abney - Takes dumb penalties and can't play hockey
David Musil - I see him getting beat a lot on the outside. He's slow and can't contain speed on the rush. Not good with the puck either. Rattie or Jenner would look nice right about now

After watching the three games, the guys I'm most impressed with are:

Roy: He's got good vision, incredibly speedy, plays hard and has a good shot. I don't know what's not to like here, he's not even that small. He already looks better than Cogliano ever did.

Platzer: Didn't notice him too much in the first game, but in the second game he made a move early that was a high skill play, made me check to see who #71 was. He then scored a beauty and seemed to play pretty hard, should put up a good year with London this year.

Khaira: I'd give him a B. Showed some nice flashes however the play died on his stick a few times and he seems to have a penchant for taking it behind the net into bodies and losing it. He was however faster than I thought he would be, and showed a nice shot in the game against Vancouver.

Nurse: In the second game he played, he was quite good. Fast, great passing. He just needs a lot of pounds.

Davidson: A lot more skilled than I thought he would be, I was expecting a Musil type but he showed great stickhandling and was very quick. I wouldn't count this guy out.

I was hoping for more from Houck (didn't notice him at all), Kessy (not a ton of skill, weak shot), Ewanyk (seemed to stop skating and having to start again in the neutral zone) and Schaber (showed a couple flashes but overall pretty ineffective).

Didn't actually think they played that badly. The other teams seemed to be quite opportunistic in their scoring, and I think if that team continued on they would have had some wins. They didn't look extremely outclassed to me.

i think that's pretty much a given. don't the bears usually win this game? the one game bears/Oil rooks game i attended the bears schooled them. course that was when Laraque was a rookie.
