He bailed us out on Conroy, and to make that one dumb mistake, just blows his whole game... I've never been so disappointed in him. O'Sullivan had that chance to seal it too... We looked way better than anytime last season. This is the year, but it's just the first game, if you'd like to look at the positives.
Get used to Khabibulin being the goat... I think we're in for 4 years with a lot of stretches of him being just that. I think it's going to be the signing that haunts Tambelini his entire duration as GM in Edmonton.
We just pretty much just physically dominated the flames. I see no negative in that game at all. That was better effort and intensity than we had all of last season. We just watched our team outplay the opposition and lose, rather than watching us win by some miracle and have a million question marks following the game.
On a lighter note, Cogs looked a little tired, but I guess that is to be expected from all that dangling from belts he did in the opening entertainment. I wonder if that giant oilers logo on his back rubbed off on his shoulder pads. That was cogs, right?
No doubt, Khabibulin knew what he did wrong, you guys saw his frustration afterwards, he still has his passion. It's only the first game, and even if it hurts, I'm sure that we're all positive that this season will be better than the last one
