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:
- Nikolai Khabibulin: .855 SV%
- Oilers' penalty-killing percentage: 55.6%
- 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.
