We lost. Losses deserved to be criticised.

That’s fine.....there’s criticizing, then there’s losing your f’n mind and completely overreacting...especially after 1 game.

I think I would prefer Baer in for Ferland.

After one game lol. Don’t get me wrong I think it was a mistake to send down Baer but your pointing at the wrong guy

I predict hockey guad in for Jake next game. You know he won’t slot in place of the “defensive specialists”

Did Ferland make a single hit? 

I only saw 3 hit attempts. One by Beagle, Myers and another by Schaller. The rest of the hits are seriously padded stats. If there was 10 hits tonight the stat keepers are really being generous.

This is why I wanted as much of our final roster as possible playing the last 2 games of the preseason. Easy 2 points gone for no reason other than the team not playing together before and spending the entire game working out the kinks. Hughes struggled defensively early but when he started getting thrown out with Bo's line things started happening for us. 

 

Virtanen, Leivo and Ferland were downright bad. Everyone else got better as the game went on, which is all you can expect under the circumstances. Bo's line was the best line in the game.

It also has to do with the schedule of the preseason. Back to back games on back to nights in a sequence of 3 games in 4 nights. It is reasonable for the coach to not play the full roster on both of the last 2 pre season games. I am more mad at how most teams have their last pre season game in the weekends and our last was on Thursday, that’s almost a full week without action as well.

Honestly, more mad than I thought I'd be. Can't let McDavid walk through like that, but Hughes will learn. His play with the puck is something else. Pearson-Horvat-Miller look like an excellent 2nd line.

He was bagged and Sutter did a horrid turnover...

Time to rack up some confused faces...

 

I'm concerned about Pettersson's ability to carry the play 5 v 5. He's uber-talented, and nobody is denying that, but I haven't seen him really carry the play in a game since the first half of last season. He can still be a deadly weapon on the PP and can come in clutch in the latter stages of a game, but as far as regular 5 v 5 play, I see him being outmuscled, outhustled and just generally outplayed on a regular basis.

We could have easily won this game.

 

However, I HATE seeing Virtanen just fly around, float around the neutral zone, turn the puck over, and accomplish nothing.

(Hockey withdraw + Big Money Signings + Star Youth) x “Just preseason.. you’ll see..” = ...

 

Didn’t wait 4 months to watch them loose their first game to the coilers.

That's a fair assessment, last season was his first full one though. Very few players carry the play consistently that early in their career. I'm sure it will come to him shortly though.

I really dont know what the management was thinking. schaller, Eriksson and virtanen didnt show anything in preseason 

It's plain and simple... owner has his hands over the operations!! Already paid that much for Eriksson... and can't get much cap relief from buyout....  just let him ride along! As for Baer, the Management felt there was a good chance he could get claimed to shed his salary but....

Please people - I realize a lot of you don't like Sutter - but get real.

 

Sutter;s clearance hit the linesman - the puck fell at his feet - Edmonton picked up the transition gift - it takes a real pair of shizz goggles to call that a "horrid turnover".

 

:32 Doesn't take a genius to see that the ref jumps over the puck and the edmonton player stops it with the stick blade... the shizz goggles are working better than whatever you're wearing ;) 

GREAT hustle by Sutter to recover as well!
