From a logic standpoint keeping Sam Gagner with the big club this season doesn’t make a lot of sense. The Oilers really aren’t going anywhere this season. Tonight’s another example of what happens to teams that can’t compete: when they address one area there’s suddenly another leak in the boat. The PK was solid tonight but Denis Grebeshkov left his brain on the dresser and Dwayne Roloson had a couple of spaz moments.
It was a good night because this kid Gagner is quickly emerging as someone who can make his linemates better.
At age 18. Folks, this might be a big fly.
