    Well that sucked.

    Basically everything everyone was worried about throughout the summer reared its ugly head today.

    Power play looked terrible
    Penalty kill sucked
    Talbot was weak
    Defense can't defend, can't transition and can't contribute offensively.
    If McDavid isn't involved the team can't score.

    At least Lucic got a goal. Outside of that, there isn't a single positive to take from the game. Disastrous way to start the season.

    New year, same Oilers.

    And the scary thing is that was probably one of their easier games this month.

    That was abysmal.

    The power play should be overhauled before next game.

    What a miserable start to the season. Can't help but just laugh at this point.

    McDavid - good

    rest of the team - trash

    I think Matt Benning's new nickname should be Charmin because that guy is ultra soft on the puck and plays like poop.

    Talbot subpar, Benning absolute trainwreck. Draisaitl sluggish.
    But Lucic good.

    Ick.

    I don't understand how a team full of highly paid professionals can have a season like the last one, take a whole summer to reset, and come out looking EXACTLY THE SAME.

    Said it before, will say it again. If yamamoto has value, we need to trade him ASAP.

    I dont understand why it seems like the oilers are always looking for the backdoor tap in on the rush. So many low % passes never make it through. Why not just rip a shot. Similar to our first GA.

    Kassian was pretty good tonight, lots of hits and good hard play. Still not the guy I would put on the ice when looking for a goal late in the game.

    It's okay guys the Oilers jump right back into it in....5 days. They get to sit and sulk in the **** they just put on the ice. Wonder if that will motivate them against Boston or if they will fail to show up again.

    Garbage coaching,
    Garbage execution.

    Bouchard, Lucic played well.
    Talbot was decent despite being left out to dry but he’s still plagued with early goal-itis and that’s unacceptable.

    Typical Oilers.

    After game 1 last year everything thought there was no doubt we’re winning the cup, now after game 1 this year everyone thinks we’re lottery bound

    Moral of the story is it’s game 1 so... Meh, on the the next

    Talbot lets in first shot, .846 sv % and gets completely outplayed by a career back-up, Craptastic Defence was a big part in this however we all new if he didn't improve we don't have a chance this year. Hope this isnt a trend YIKES

    I don't know how anyone thinks we can make the playoffs with that defense.

    Team had two entire chances the whole game without McDavid on the ice. Yamamoto's shot in the 3rd and Puljujarvi off a Kinkaid turnover.

    And that was it.

    Totally not a one man team though.

    Benning doesn't do anything positive for the Oilers and yet he is still in the lineup and dollars to donuts he'll be in the next game and Bouchard will get scratched even though he played way better. I'd love for the media to point out to Mclellan that his job is on the ****ing line and you're doing the same **** that put you in this position in the first place.
