Getting tired of always being on the wrong end of the shot clock.

I thought a handful of guys looked really good tonight, especially Moroz and Pitlick. Didn't expect that from them.

Gagner, Yakupov, Petry and Smid are Barons?

I liked Omark, one thing he always shows is compete..sure he may be a bit of a sideshow now and then but he definitely brings it every night. Good coaching could make good use of him I think.

Yakupov is extremely fast..missed seeing him all summer, nice to see him on the ice again.

I never managed to get the stream to work. Most of what I read in the GDT seemed pretty normal, Yak in control offensively, Abney incompetent etc. Could you detail Moroz/Pitlick's play please?

To me I thought we did good considering our roster deficiencies.

I liked the play of: Larsen, Klefbom, Joensuu, Moroz, Yakupov, and Martindale tonight.

Gagner made some solid plays offensively as well.

Grebs IMO was awful, Omark isn't doing himself any favors either. Ryan Hamilton didn't show me enough to consider him as an NHL player, Lander needs to show more IMO as well.

IMO, Pitlick seemed to be in the play a lot this game. I don't know if it was just me, or the line he was on, but I heard his name all the time and he always seemed to be in the offensive zone. His hands are horrible though and reminds me a lot of Paajarvi. Moroz was nice on the forecheck, and played really well physically. He played the type of game you expect from a good grinder.

Omark, Grebs, Hamilton, Martindale, and obviously Abney weren't great.

HM to Martindale, who seems to have gotten a fire lit under his ass.

first period was a pleasure to watch. as long as everybody was fresh and going, the intensity was over the top, we simply manhandled them at times.

I didn't watch most of it...but I did see a nice play by Yak.

Also, I've always been a fan of Omark's weird punching bag/agitator game when he's at the boards....not really convinced it's as effective is it ought to be but it's amazing how he can generate a penalty or scoring chance from just getting manhandled on the wing.

If there weren't at least three guys ahead of him I think Omark-Gordon-Joenssu would make an interesting possession line.

Really? Because let me tell you, all the posts you made today regarding Omark it really seems like you personally would love nothing more but Omark to fail.

I didnt see Omark coast one time today. He was lost defensivly more than once. And quite frankly there is no excusses for that.

Both the penelties he got was kinda close calls. Personally i think the first one was really a ******** call while the second one if it was a dive was just dumb as **** by him. I missed the replay...

He needs to show a ton more or he is going to the ahl. But am sure he will get a few more chances this preseason.

Omark looked slow and weak out there. He'll need to show much more if he wants to stay in Edmonton. Larsen was brutal all game, and then makes 2 good plays to get the game close. Smid looked rusty, Petry better but not great. Klefbom was ok but didn't stand out. Grebs was bad all around. Gagner definitely our best forward. Yak seemed to improve as the game went along. Jones was invisible all game. Joensuu certainly wasn't. Jones better watch out or Joensuu will take his spot on the 3rd line.

All in all, we got outplayed and the reffing was bad. But it wasn't even close to our starting lineup, and the guys didn't get embarrassed by a near opening night Jets roster. So I am not too annoyed. I hope our second preseason game vs the jets has a few more of our starters.

Larsen was awful all game. I went to eat, and now people are saying he played well?

Well, he did outscore Grebeshkov, so...

Larsen is really impressive with the puck in my eyes. He's competing with Grebeshkov though so he's in tough.

I don't think we should be making any judgements on the team as a whole until more of the final roster is playing together. None of these guys have chemistry playing together, so the final result doesn't really mean anything. But of course everyone knows that, but will complain anyway.

Did you catch a feed Bryan? Winnipeg site feed worked great for me all game. And they actually had announcers who called the play. So once again I have to thank the opposition side for providing me with the entertainment.

Really? He had three good shifts there in the third, but the rest of what I've seen has been pretty meh. I guess at least he hasn't been getting schooled like Grebs. I don't see how Grebs makes the team. He skates real good, but his anticipation of what might happen in the d-zone is not nearly at the NHL level. Is he really an upgrade over Foster or Barker or Whitney?

Why would a fan want their players to do poorly?

Omark was meh today. SImple as that.

Moroz scored and played fairly physical out there, I didn't mind his game at all.

Pitlick had some good hits but showed little offensively. IMO he looked a bit bigger than in seasons past.
