Remember the early start time people! That is if you care to watch.

lol it's not that Edmonton gave it their all...it's more of Vancouver brought nothing...except maybe Horvat

Bartkowski is captain tank, his passes to no one in particular and his blatant give-aways are hilarious

Hopefully the same team shows up tonight

I loved Etem's pass for Marroon's first goal. Perfect pass. Almost Sedin like.
Too bad Etem doesn't play for Edmonton yet.

What are your predictions for tonight's game vs. Calgary?

Calgary brings out the flame thrower to put Tankcouver away and win?

Miller time tanks in the third period to seal the victory for the tank job?

Tank captain Bartkowski gift wraps a Calgary goal with an errant pass?

Gretzky is spot on about the lack of creativity and imagination in today's game. The "defence first" mentality means the game is more of a grind than an offensive showcase like back in the 80s.

Wayne Gretzky says today's NHL lacks creativity, imagination - Sportsnet.ca

One of the major talking points during the 2015-16 NHL season has been around finding ways to increase scoring around the league.

Increasing the size of nets and shrinking the size of goalie equipment were among the ideas discussed during the league’s GM meetings in November and March.

If there’s anyone qualified to speak about scoring in the NHL, though, it’s Wayne Gretzky.

In an interview with the New York Times, the NHL’s all-time leader in goals and assists spoke about how drastically the game has changed since his playing days.

“When I was 10 years old, they’d throw a puck on the ice and say, ‘Go score.’ Now, at 10 years old, the kids are taught to play in their lanes,” Gretzky said. “Defencemen stay back. Everybody blocks shots. I mean, my goodness, I don’t think I ever blocked a shot, and I killed penalties every single game. I thought goaltenders were paid to block shots, not forwards. It’s changed completely. I think the biggest thing we’ve lost is a little bit of our creativity and imagination in general.”

Only two teams are averaging more than three goals per game this season – the Dallas Stars (3.23 goals per game in 80 games) and Washington Capitals (3.04 after 79 contests).

It’s a staggering decline if you were to contrast it to the 1983-84 Edmonton Oilers team that averaged a whopping 5.575 goals per game. Gretzky reunited with some of his former teammates Wednesday during a farewell ceremony at Rexall Place.


Now, that Oilers squad is a bit of an outlier considering they’re the greatest offensive team in NHL history, but there’s no denying scoring is at its lowest point since the 2004 lockout.

Through 1,199 games this season, the average goals per team per game was at 2.71. That’s the lowest average since 2003-04 when there were no obstruction interference calls, no two-line passes and the neutral zone trap was a common team strategy.

The Great One added that while there are still a plethora of NHL stars that bring an imaginative, high-octane style to the rink – just watch an Alex Ovechkin or Patrick Kane highlight reel – the “defence first” mentality is something that starts at a young age.

“All in all, it’s sort of a grinding game now,” Gretzky added. “You’re taught from Day 1 that your role and responsibility is to keep the puck out of your net.”
