The opposing view: Nucks Misconduct

Top Story: Edmonton's young stars are lacking in hydrogen to fuse and looked like a bunch of brown dwarfs or gas giants or something. The Oilers have suffered their annual Penticton brain trauma, and now look to salvage some semblance of pride at this tournament. Thus far, the Oilers forwards have looked terrible and the excuses for their play have been asinine, bordering on insane. If you balance expectations with performance, I will say that one player who has been consistent and noticeable in a good way has been Greg Chase. Marc Roy has received compliments for his play, but I think his speed is getting him noticed and folks are overlooking the rest of his game.

The defense has been better - both Martins, Marincin and Gernat have displayed athleticism and an offensive knack, and Brandon Davidson has been quiet but consistent. On the other hand, David Musil's footspeed is more of a concern now than it was when I watched him during the WHL playoffs.

The Oilers are saying:

--Yeah, I mean, solve the one-timer problem and everything else works itself out.

The Opponent is saying:

"At the pro level, if you get into penalty trouble, teams will make you pay."

--Nolan Baumgartner, talking about the Canucks taking penalties against the Flames.
