neither played phenomenal tonight by any means. im hoping with a little more seasoning they can become solid 4,5 contributors to this team down the road.

Oh I hear ya. Whats up with the Wings this year?

Thats the most undisciplined I've ever seen that team.

Either the Wings are flu impacted as well or they just aren't dialed in at all.

I thought Chorney played a very good game - the lead obviously offered him some protection, but even when it was lost, i thought he still played a heads up game, and wasn't just rattling the puck off the boards in panic

Strange timing that some people on here are trashing Nilsson. I thought he was the best of the midget line by far. Made some smart defensive plays, and was creative in the offensive zone. If he played like this most nights, he'd actually be an asset.

Who did Ferraro say was quoted as saying that the Wings will likely have to fight and battle for a playoff spot this year? It was somebody in the organization.

Not sure what you were watching. There was complete panic in his game in the third period. Mind you, he did have Strudwick to contend with.

Chorney is an NHL defenseman. Peckham is not. Strudwick has a one-way deal.

Chorney is the no.7 defenseman at worst on this roster, when everyone is healthy.

Also, Quinn needs to put Strudwick in a rack or something to lengthen his stride. He is SLOW this season, and has no poise or passing ability. I grimace everytime the puck goes to his side.

Six multi-point games.

MacTavish's comments after the 1st period were gold. I love that guy.

Some observations.

The Oilers getting 2 points for this game is probably one of the greatest injustices so far this year. They got about 4 flukey goals, and were completely and utterly outplayed the entire game, start to finish. Thank God Detroit didn't put a goalie in the nets. They should have won this 8-1, if the hockey gods had anything to say about it.


If Grebeshkov and Gilbert are not the softest defencemen in the league, someone please tell me who is. One is a giveaway machine, and the other couldn't check his hat.

Is Theo Peckham really that slow?

Taylor Chorney, you got exposed as the AHL defenceman that you really are tonight.

I hope Alice Hemsky had a good sleep after his two goals. Pathetic.

Worst game I've seen POS play for this team. Brutal in his own zone, and created more turnovers than Sarah Lee.

I swear Pat Quinn will have a heart attack screaming at these useless teats before this season is over.

Again, I hope this can be completely and totally blamed on the flu bug. Then, all is forgiven.
Dude, take your meds The Oilers played fine in the first two periods then got owned in the third Breathe and Relax

41 reminded me a lot of 71 tonight. The way he can skate and keep up with an opponent and have such an effective stick is impressive. Just like Lubo. With a little more seasoning and his extra physical play, I think we have something special here. It's so nice to see him develop after his pro career started on such shaky ground.

bs... he worked his ass off on the boards and behind the net tonight - just because he's not strong enough to knock the big ass D off the puck doesn't mean he wasn't working hard - Nilsson is NOT a third/fourth line checker - he was working hard, but it's not his game - granted he made some mistakes - but it wasn't the be all end all of poor performances - hell, he did better on the boards than our captain

he for sure has to reign in the soft passes, agreed. but stupid mistakes should not equal a lack of effort

He's got the flu. As does most of the rest team, to varying degrees of seriousness.

I think the most telling sign was the PP when Hemsky scored.

They let 2 or 3 cross seam passes in a span of 30 seconds. They don't usually let 3 of the passes the entire game.

Peckham was almost NHL ready last year...

I suspect the ankle injury has set him back a bit - it is only due to injuries to Oiler regulars that he has made the jump too soon.....
