Two Games Is Too Early To Panic

The season is two games old.

Last year, the Oilers had a 100% winning percentage four games into the season and we all saw how that worked out; in other words, it's far to early to read anything into the Oilers numbers so far.  That said, let's take a quick look at three items I've been concerned about:

  1. Nikolai Khabibulin: .855 SV%
  2. Oilers' penalty-killing percentage: 55.6%
  3. The Oilers First Line (with Jean-Francois Jacques): 6GP - 0G - 1A - 1PTS - -5

It's early.  It's early.  It's early.

Two of those items have a good chance at turning around.
