Finally we get to see the full lineup going into the season... minus Kesler and Raymond. Please nobody else get hurt.

Fast paced game - the Oilers have had several 2-on-1s, even a 3-on-1...

Luongo looks sharp, angles solid, no bad rebounds.

The Canucks first powerplay looked very awkward, but on their second powerplay chance, they looked much better crossing the offensive blueline, and eventually Hodgson tipped in a Hamhuis shot.

1-0 Canucks

Malhotra is handling the puck like a grenade - he is really struggling.

Sturm's skating is odd - the tank looks pretty empty.

The Oilers defence for this game:

Tom Gilbert
Theo Peckham
Cam Barker
Andy Sutton
Jeff Petry
Corey Potter

...and not surprisingly, the penalties so far in the game are:
Sutton - hooking
Potter - hooking
Gilbert - cross checking

If the Canucks can keep forcing the play in the Edmonton zone, the patchwork/AHL Oilers defence will have to keep taking penalties.

Hodgson has looked very good on the powerplay, stickhandling through the middle, holding possession along the boards, and crisp passes.

What a knob Luongo is flopping to his back to try for the interference call. I could do without that. So, then they score easily, but I don't think they get that one if he stays on his knees, and keeps minding the net.

1-1

Nice to see Roberto taking a dive on Edmonton's goal. I guess its not in this guy's DNA to play though a small bump.

Disclaimer: I am not excusing the D's horrible coverage on the goal. Just pointing out that Luongo refuses to take a bump and stay up.

Also why the fuck can you not throw a clean hit in the NHL without having to fight some meathead?

Oreskovich drills Nugent-Hopkins along the boards in the Canucks zone, and a brouhaha ensues!

Ends up with Lapierre having to fight Peckham, and getting beaten up for the most part.

This is where a 4th liner that can fight in the heavyweight class would have come in handy.

A little more of that from lapierre can only be good. Agreed on the Lou " dive". In fact I hope there is a team wide edict not to dive......

Is it just me or is Burrows looking stronger?

Yeah - it's getting worse each year - and from what I've seen this season, it's at an all time high. Sure, stick up for your teammates after cheap, illegal hit - but after every fucking hard hit?? Grow a pair and wait for revenge. Quit slowing the game down with meaningless shoving and face washes.

The game within a game. Some might say that's where we lost the cup.

Hodgson showing some good wheels on that empty netter. That was actually a nice goal considering it was off the backhand with very little time for him to get the shot off. He showed some good offensive instincts. If his linemates can get on the same page as him he should have a productive year.

I just think his puck skills and ability to dish it in tight are incredibly deft for a player of his (lack of) pro experience. It took Kesler several years to even hint at showing some of the puck-handling ability Cody is displaying already.

No dig to Kes of course, just sayin'... this kids got game.

If COHO can stay healthy we got a player. I do not know where he will play but he is looking pretty good so far. Someone said this kid has got game. Prediction. Our first Cup will have this kid's name on it. It is meant to be. I thought it would happen last year with him but this and that went down. This year he will make the team. If he does not I am going to start believing in Tony Gallagher, and I do not want to do that. I sure wish we had Pavarji. Out of all the picks they have taken near or at the top, he is going to be the best if handled right. he can fly and he knows what to do with the puck. Hall is going to get bad hurt if he does not change his game of fishng for the puck. Edler is not a dirty player but Shanny will suspend him anyway. Has to. There is a message being delivered. I am not sure yet how i feel about it. We still need someone who can fight when it is called for. Props to Lappy for showing up but we need a heavyweight like Neil from Ottawa. I wonder what it would cost. Hell. Even Rosehill (sp) from T.O. I like the way he went after the guy who hit their player Boyce.

Does anyone know the status of Bitz? I do not knwo him at all. What kind of player is he?
