So.. how many times have we lit up Harding now? His GAA vs. Oilers must be 7283902835093475.3 or something like that.

JTS/Brule 4G - BBO/Schremp 1SOG?

Good game by the Oilers. Glad to have Khabbi on this team.
4gp. 0-1-1 -2 9sog. actually. Not the same kind of supporting cast as what this club has though that's for sure.

Although a guy could wish for SOG, Oilers were pressing hard most of that game. Minny had alot of useless shots that counted, Oilers didn't have many shots, but evidently they were good ones, since the two that hit the post don't count. It was a snore fest game, as most Minny games are, but at least the Oilers won it. Take it for what it was worth, Oilers won. I would like to see the Oilers pick the tempo up a little, and be more physical on their forecheck.

If he can stay around 50%, Moreau-Cogs-Pisani would be a real nice 3rd line for us once Fernando is back.

BBO your still creating line up excuses for Schremp! And I think SOG might be shoot out goal.

Ahh well, it would at least have been fun to hear Rod yelling "TheY SCORE!!" 5 times.


Thrilled to see JfJ with 2 points.

And Penner and Brule.

I never thought of it, but now that you mention it, yeah they are. Hmm, I wonder how it will play out.

No. He's an effective 3rd liner.

Penner and O'Sullivan are beasts right now. They should make a song called "You can't stop Mr. Penner" every time Dustin decides to rush up the puck.

He does and he really has refined his game. He doesn't run around looking to drill everyone. He picks his spots. They look like they are really working on his bad habits ie..trying to deke through 3-4 players. The simpler the his game is the better he plays and honestly let JFJ and Stone do the nasty business and every once and while he will catch someone with their head down.

I hope he can keep it up. He was always one of my favorite WHLers and I was so bitter at what Columbus did to him.

Imagine the gnashing of teeth on here if Penner was lighting it up in Ottawa right now

The Oilers are certainly putting the puck in the net when they get it into high percentage areas.

Patrick O'Sullivan was the best player on the ice tonight.

Every time he touched the puck, something good happened.

Things I learned about this game

1) Penner earns his A. Outplaying his contract so far? I'd say so.
2) Brule with two crusty goals! This must be the person that the Vancouver Giants fans fell in love with. Delicious!!
3) Comrie has this uncanny ability to be at the right place at the right time.
4) If Roli had played, he would have let a weak goal to kill any Oiler momentum. Khabby is just a stone cold Russian. Khabby Just Confidence.
5) Patty O'sullivan is a beauty stick-handler. More confidence and he would challenge Hemsky for sick skillz (IMO). Loved that he didnt back down from Boo's hit and instead dished some of his own.
6) Smid gets better and better. One of these days he will score a Coffey-esque goal.
7) This team needs Hemmer on PP, and Souray on PK. Get well soon guys!

He looks like a different player for sure.

Hopefully he develops some consistancy. He's is still prone to one or two howling turnovers per game. If he can limit those, he'll really help us out a lot.

I think those guys who are struggling even under macT always played. Now that they are under Quinn he isn't playing them as much and it's taking a shot at their ego/confidence. They gotta suck it up or they will be out the door soon.

I'm slowly coming to the concept of trading Gilbert. I like him but not over any of the other top three and trading him could fill out our roster. One of the top 4 has to go in order to do that and he is the least productive out of the group IMO. Trade him for a shutdown Dman and if possible a faceoff PK specialist. Then dump one of the extra forwards we have running around.

I went from 6 to midnight whenever he had the puck...kid can flat out play, it's great to watch. That backhander off the bar would've been a goal of the week had it been 2.54 cm lower.

The biggest thing about O'Sullivan for me anyways is how much better a defensive player he is just after a few games this season. He really works well with Penner playing off him and using the space Penner creates to make scoring chances. The first Penner goal was a great example of that

I've been in favor of it for two years now. I've always liked Grebeshkov's game more and if they plan on keeping him long term then Gilbert has to go to address some of the team's other needs.

I agree just because what he did looked so fluid, Harding didnt even know what happened until like 5 seconds after it happened

That wasnt so hard was it

I wonder how many of those were against Brodziak, or even what Brodziak's #'s were like tonight.

Nothing against Brodziak, but I was one those who were not worried at all when he was moved. I had a feeling Stone and Brule could more than fill his space.

Even when he didn't have the puck he was great. Such a good well-rounder player.

Yup! when we run into money problems in the offseason re-signing some of these youngins, I hope we clear soem cap space in Gilbert - big body, doesn't really use it to clear the net, makes slow decisions when the puck gets to him. He's smooth - good player but I think he's the odd man out.
