Would have been nice to see the Russian line in this game Oilers just do not have the offensive guns.

I keep mistaking 73 (Abney) for Khaira, and I keep turning my head at all of the comments about how well he's playing. Haha, phew. It's just stupid ole' Abney.

We all knew Rieder was the better prospect.. but the Oilers wanted more of the grittier and more "truculent" types of players (like Kessy)... rather that more smallish skilled guys like Rieder.

I understand why they did the deal but I also was somewhat disappointed because it's clear which player has more talent.

You have to think that Cameron Abney is finished. I just don't see anything there.

Abney is beyond useless. What a waste of a 3rd round pick. Just buy him out please.

I have no earthly idea how Kessy scored 11 goals in 15 games in the WHL playoffs last spring. It doesn't seem possible.

The Coke Machine method. I remember thinking that we were passed that crap. Oh, boy was I wrong.

well it's not even trying to look like a competitive game anymore. don't think you can make any opinions based on it. could go in anybody's favour in the 3rd but they managed to score early.

He's a tough guy. He's not going to be very good. He'll be a Jim Vandermeer or George Parros type guy.

We really need one winger with size to develop into a descent 3rd liner. Khaira has some potential (not basing on this game at all, but his college season). No other Oiler forward in this game is likely to ever play an NHL game (maybe Ewanyk...)

Granlund player of the game imo. Khaira the best Oiler.

You created an account just to post this? I feel so honored.

And no, I don't really see why I'd let go of this right now, considering we're talking about prospects, at a prospects tournament. We had Rajala, and thought Rieder would be expendable. We were wrong.

Liked Marincin, Betker, Chase.

Disliked the Nurse/Klefa pairing, Kessy, and Kerr.

Bob said Marincin had a bad game I did not see that, to me he was the best defense man.

Maybe Roy. Our forward prospects look horrible,at least Hall, RNH and Yakupov are on the big team.
