Well folks what can we say about this last loss to the Thrashers. Yeah there we some bright spots, Penner got his 12th, the goaltending is still okay to good. But for some reason this team just doesn't seem to be able to put together a complete game. Skate miles and miles and pass lots with no results most of the time. This is truly a one line team when it comes to scoring. The defense is okay so far, but still not quite there. El Capitano took another goofy penalty that didn't help the cause any.
The power play couldn't get it done with ample chances and the penalty kill gave up 2 to many. Is it time to panic with the season a quarter over. Nope! It wouldn't help any ways. What we have here is a mediocre team even with the same line up they started the season with. IMHO the team ran on adrenalin for the first 10 games, they got some lucky goals even though they were outshot. This team will be struggling come the end of the season just to maybe sneak into the playoffs. I'm not being negative, I like to think I'm being realistic. Any ways here's to hoping they get some of that adrenalin back and start getting lucky again when they shoot the puck. I hope they get an Oilers blogger as well. don't know what keeps happening to them but I miss reading about them.
