The AHL Barons played their second game of the season last night and the rest of the Oilers' prospect group continue playing their league seasons. A few strong arrows this week and a goodly number of struggling players, too. More after the break.

The effort was there, but the goals were not. Final Score: 2-0 Canucks.

I have no idea what this is all about, but the Oilers need to play with some intensity.
The Oilers need to play hard, play smart and most importantly cut down on the catastrophic mistakes that have led directly to goals.

It doesn’t take long for a junior-age player’s nine-game audition to come to an end. Leon Draisaitl is a touch short of halfway there, having played four of those contests. Darnell Nurse has sat out two, so he’s only played a pair, but there’s a bit of a logjam in terms of space on the back end and nobody wants to see him sitting in the press box.
In short, it’s soon enough to start wondering whether the duo will stay in the NHL for the duration of the 2014-15 season.
