Nice win. The Oiler's D is just awful, especially on the first Canuck's goal and Boeser's first goal - it was almost like a shootout situation - no D men, just facing a goalie.

It’s for clarity, so you don’t get confused and think he means Huggy Bear.

Sportsnet's Ken Reid is practically orgasmic over Boeser's "pucks in deep" reference on the first night of the season :D

The interview with Travis Green on TV, he said "ya, think that could have been a penalty on Hughes there" Very polite of him. :lol:
We need Quinn to watch his own back though. After he shone so bright in the bubble playoffs, he's really going to have a target on him now.

I agree. He quits on some plays on the defensive side of the game. All these years and the Oilers still haven’t found him a decent winger other than the German.
Gonna be tough to accomplish that considering they paid McDavid and Draisaitl a quarter of their overall cap.

Throw in Neal, Nurse, Larsson, and Koskinen, and you've burned up almost 50% of your cap space on 6 players.....and don't have a top-10 goaltender, nor a top pairing dman, to show for it.

They want McDavid to be Crosby, a guy who can ensure that almost any linemate he has will have a career year. The problem with that is McDavid's game is flash and dash, he's the most dangerous guy ever on the rush, but he doesn't have the possession and pass game that Crosby does. Once the game slows down as the defense sets up, he's not on the same level as Crosby when it comes to hockey IQ.

McDavid will probably play around 1400 games in his career barring losing entire seasons the way Sid has. So the guy will probably add around 1750 points to the Edmonton Oilers total contribution to the individual record books, but he won't bring them another Cup. There's also a chance that his career winds down early as many guys who play at that speed often have to hang up the skates prematurely due to injuries sustained, or they become less effective when their speed falls off in their early 30's.

Only the greats can compensate for that. For now, he's incredible to watch on the attack.....
