    Vancouver is a wild card. The loss of Markstrom hurts them but they gave the Oilers problems last year too.

    Honestly even their 2nd line isn't that great.... Horvat is a good player, but those wingers ain't much. It's also a travesty that Hughes has to play with Jordie? Benn

    Think Hughes was with Hamonic yesterday.

    Still, this Canucks team doesn't scare me.

    They seem to be high on Hoglander. And has Juolevi finally cracked their roster?
    Should be a good contest.

    Other than Hughes that D looks to be on the slow side

    6-1 for Oil and I think it might be pessimistic prediction.

    Kahun 2 goals
    JP one goal
    RNH one goal
    Barrie one goal
    Draisaitl one goal and 2 apples
    McDavid 3 apples

    Larsson scores one to own net

    7-3 Oilers, Canucks lineup looks like trash on paper. (We’ve been fooled about paper lineups as Oilers fans) but I fair to say that this Oiler team might be decent

    At least on paper, the Nucks lineup doesn’t scare me at all. More question marks than we have. They are still good enough to beat us if our team doesn’t show up like they should.

    3 - 1 Loss. :ha:

    The Oilers get a quick goal from McD in the first 2 minutes, and then sleepwalk through the rest of the game with zero intensity / effort until the last 4 minutes or so.

    Does this scenario sound familiar? :rolleyes:

    On the bright side, after this loss, the Oil win the next 4 out of 6.

    BTW I PRAY that my prediction is wrong, and that the Oilers stomp the Canucks 5 - 1.

    3-2 Oilers in Overtime. Kevin Quinn screams OVERTIIIIIIIME WINNER from the rafters while Remenda screams WOW over and over again! When security comes to escort them out, Drew starts talking how good the San Jose Sharks are.

    If he squishes Motte(who will undoubtedly be running around like an idiot), he gets a pass.
