Pretty hard for a team to get into the game when they're busy taking it in the rear from a pathetic ref.

Chris Lee is an embarrassment to the striped shirt.

Absolutely. Him and Penner were dominant throughout the game. Everyone else ranged from average to horrendous.

Can someone remind me why Horcoff is on the first line?

He just doesn't seem to have the hands to play in this league.
He'd be a liability in that sense on a 3rd and 4th line who'd be coughing up the cycle.

A better chance that Stone makes the club imo.

The refs aren't the reason on why Oilers lost tonight.

Weak excuse. The refs were embarrassing but so was the majority of our veterans. Rarely do you take penalties when you have the puck and they spent almost the whole night just chasing.

Penner and JFJ good, everyone else varying degrees of not. "Our captain" sure isn't doing anything to earn a spot.

They certainly helped in the loss; sorry one did, Chris Lee.

There were some good things, and there were some bad things. Hard to get an idea of system play when there's little flow after being shorthanded for most of the game. It's a good thing that there's still two more preseason games and a whole work-week before the start of the regular season - the team clearly needs that practice time, because what we did see was disorganized play for most of the game. They had their moments, though. Penner and Brule's line kept the play simple and their success generated from that because they played within their limits.

I really like seeing Penner and Jacques using their bodies out there. Both of them have energy and confidence that we haven't ever seen them have in Oilers uniforms.

Good to see Cogs good on the dot again; and this time against a full Calgary roster, so that's essentially the competition he'll be facing in the regular season.

I totally agree. Stone should be in the lineup ahead of Pouliot, Schremp, Nilsson.

No way, dude. Stone was awful. Every time Comrie and O'Sullivan tried to get something going Stone was right there f'ing it up. That guy can't pass the puck to save his life. It's either too hard or too soft and no where near the intended target. You could almost see the relief on the faces of Comrie and O'Sullivan when Quinn finally sent Cogliano out there with them instead of Hands of Stone.
