There injury situation is almost as bad as ours. And Eberle and Nug look like they think they are getting traded. Desratl looked good but scored as much as Horvat, Hall looked good and scored as well as Bear. Missing their #1 d as well. Their # 3 line was almost their most noticeable much like a few games back when the Cracknell line was the only line going with out a Sedin on it. Sure they have lots of high picks but the coaching merri-go-round of the last few years has not made the most of those picks. the Oil do not have the luxury of the Sedins to rely on, and that is no more the fault of the current management/coach than it is the shrewdness of the Canucks current management. Of all the Oilers last five coaches, Pat Quinn is the only one I'd want behind an NHL bench, not counting McLellan. As nice as it was to see Hansen score, no one would have been happy to see a Canuck goalie let in that softie. take out the Sedins and I don't see much difference between these clubs. That was far too close a game for any gloating. But that said, I liked what I saw from our rooks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
