THE MEAT AND POTATOES

The Good:

- JDD was fan-freaking-tastic! He made some huge saves and really made sure the Canucks weren't going to tie the game. Wow! He faced 33 shots and looked like a for real #1 guy. Can this guy stay around for a while or does he disappear the next game?

- Tom Gilbert scores a goal and notches an assist to lead the offence for the Oilers. His goal came on his only shot of the game and it was his first goal in 42 games. Ouch! He also had 3 takeaways and 2 blocked shots. Great game for Gilbert. All this in 22:23 of ice time.

- Ryan Whitney has been very, very good since acquiring him for Visnovsky. Tonight he had 3 hits and played a team high 24:46. He's going to be fun to watch next year.

- Stortini was challenged a lot and never dropped the gloves. What for? The Oilers were leading all game. I was surprised that he didn't to be honest. With 11:01 of ice time, he was pretty good. He had 5 hits.

- Andrew Cogliano is a new player. He's still rockin' it up with Brule and Penner and it showed by him scoring tonight. Maybe he found a home with those two guys for next season?

The Not So Good:

- Taylor Chorney needs to not be in the NHL at this point. We have all seen the good Chorney. Tonight wasn't that guy. But when you don't have much other options, he'll do.

- Ethan Moreau should NOT get 16:58 in ice time. That's just plain nuts.

- Sam Gagner on the 4th line is stupid. STUPID!

- Being 40% on faceoffs isn't good enough to be a winner. I really hope the Oilers address this because this happens more games than it should. And it's not just one player, it's all the centers.

The Side Dish:

- No Jordan Eberle until Friday. I know... it sucks.

- The Stockton Thunder have added Bryan Young and Matt Marquardt as they were assigned to Stockton.

DID YOU KNOW? (Facts About The Edmonton Oilers)

Did you know... that the Oilers are so bad that when a sports program shows the standings, the Oilers are all but blacked out?

Did you know... the new Oklahoma City AHL team will be named soon? It's be rumored that they will announce it on the 29th.

Did you know... in light of Devan Dubnyk getting sick, the Oilers signed Nathan Deobald to a one game contract. He will be their backup in tonight's game. Lucky bastard. He wore #1 and had a great seat on the bench. He plays for the University of Calgary.
