Canucks no. 1 star - Dubnyk
lol...seriously, actually like the way Torts has this team playing, but lets be real here, the Oilers are a fucking train wreck in their own end not to mention that they have minor league goaltending, the game was somewhat flattering to the Canucks. Teams like the Sharks, the Hawks, the Blues are setting the bar in the west, a waste of time measuring this team against the Oilers. Eberle and Yak are hands down the worst players in the NHL at defense. Justin Schultz a great skater and all but fuck is he bad defensively. Taylor Hall, although a complete numbskull, at least makes an effort in his own zone. Gotta admit, the Oilers could be so much better had they made a few different choices at the draft i.e Galchenyuk and Landeskog instead of RNH and Yak. I thought these guys might have been on the right track. The Nurse pick seemingly seems like their smartest draft pick out of the bunch.
Anyhow, like Torts coaching style but this team's bottom 6 and lack of goal scoring, offensive talent will be our Achilles heel. has been for 3 years, nothing's changed. Come the playoffs, we will have to rely on Luongo to try and win 2-1 hockey games or 1-0 hockey games. Ain't happening.
