Bruins can just poking my head in to ask how Andy Ference is coming along in camp? He is a player I will miss but think he is the kind of player the Oilers fans should come to like (he really is a great locker room guy).

Been very solid so far and in the best shape out of our whole team.

Pitt has a stronger D prospect pool then us, doubt theyd do it.

If Brossoit or Gillies come here theyd become our best G prospect. And Gernat would become their best D prospect.

I am going to miss him this season but wish him and the Oilers lots of luck this season.

Is it really that hard to understand why people would rather catch the evening game instead of losing a working day? Seems pretty logical to me...

Has anybody been able to see the video from the link the Oilers Official website posted last night? The video was posted to see if you would be able to receive the Winnipeg game being streamed tonight. Of course my video does not appear. I am thinking I may not be able to get the feed tonight.

Thoughts?

Let's hope! There's far to many nicknames where they just add a "y" or an "er"

Gernat may have potential to be their best (certainly offensively), but I would take Wotherspoon and Sieloff over him.

He brings a lot of what we need. Just hope he can stay reasonably healthy over the next 4 years and we will be more than happy with him.

ps. I still expect them to name him Captian.

It helps Jonesuu that he is on a one-way contract.

Love what he brings to the table so far. He was the most physically fit player, solid in his own zone, and actually participated more offensively than I expected, but that's not even what I've liked about him. He was paired with Darnell Nurse for the first preseason game, and not only mentored him, but enabled him to play his game. Nurse looked overwhelmed in the Prospects Tourney, but you could just tell how much more comfortable he was on the ice with Ference. If he can have an impact on the development of guys like Nurse, Klefbom, and Marincin, he'll be worth every penny.

Joensuu brought more in that game than many players in our bottom 6 last year brought in a month.

He is a better player than either Smyth or Hamilton.

He should be in the top 6 with Perron if Hall is playing center.

Any one know where Curtis Hamilton is right now? I guess it does not bode well for him if I do not even know he is in camp.

I still like the Nurse pick, but man Joensuu + Nichushkin on a line together would probably be a giant headache to work against.

I mean -look- other coaches have used guys like Hall and Eberle(and RNH or even Yakupov) in the last 30 seconds of the penalty kill. Or used them to kill off a major(everyone PKs).

Is Eakins going to go beyond that? Is he going to start offensive players on the PK? Is he going to spread the talent out across different PK units?
Gregor asked him in the interview what the plan was and Eakins said that whoever can PP will PP, whoever can PK can PK. Doesn't care if the guy is already on the PP, if he can PK he'll PK.

Also said we are going to be more aggressive than we ever saw here before.

I heard he is a slower skater, how slow we talking? Steve Macintyre slow? Ryan Smyth slow? Sheldon Souray skating backwards slow?
