From Sportsnet:

Quote:
Key acquisitions: Adam Cracknell, Brandon Sutter, Brandon Prust, Blair Jones, Matt Bartkowski.

Key departures: Nick Bonino, Adam Clendening, Shawn Matthias, Zack Kassian, Brad Richardson, Kevin Bieksa, Eddie Lack.
That is a depressing list of acquisitions compared to departures. We really need our young guys to step it up and fill the holes.

Exact Canuck fan logic:

"our team is old, we have no young players and superstars. Our team sucks. Fire the GM"

"why the hell did we let Richardson and Matthias go? Our team sucks. Fire the GM"

Listened to most of the game on the drive up to the cabin

Virtanens name was said by far the most, fairly promising by the sounds of it

Gaunce however, didn't even know he was playing until he scored lol

Virtanen had some pretty decent opportunities...a few of them he tried to power his way in. He still needs to refine his puck control while in front of the net though.

I thought McCann also played pretty well. He showed his speed and creativity throughout. It's too bad he missed the net on his rocket of a shot, while on a 3 on 1, which lead to a goal against us lol.

Hutton looked solid for us, but the own goal was pretty unfortunate.

Brisebois needs to gain some confidence. He hesitated quite a few times even though positionally he was there.

Zhukenov... Didn't really get to see him play much offence, but defense wise he's pretty bad. Looks like he tries to body his check when he should be trying to clog the passing lane. Here's to hoping he develops into a better defender than Ovie lol

Not trying to make a lame excuse, but I would expect the Oilers to have more young talent than the Canucks.

Oilers draft history since 2010:

2015 - 1st pick overall
2014 - 3rd pick overall
2013 - 7th pick overall
2012 - 1st pick overall
2011 - 1st pick overall
2010 - 1st pick overall

Canucks:
2015 - 23rd pick overall
2014 - 6th pick overall
2013 - 9th pick overall
2012 - 26th pick overall
2011 - 29th pick overall
2010 - 115th pick overall

Plus it's a Young Stars tournament. It's nice to watch hockey again, but none of these guys are in mid-season form. Many of them are fairly raw and need years of coaching and training.
