    Poor showing

    OMG Edmonton, after being a fan for decades perhaps it is time to ask Mark Hunter for some help, after poor picks, miss steps, none productive trades, btinging us to this point, maybe it is time to seek proven help, before McDavid has to be traded for more sticks, a bag of pucks and financial considerations, lets get some proven help, what a disaster you have turned this franchise into... Wayne in London Ontario....

    Can you provide the Cags info? I think there may be a little exaggeration with the word " chaotic ".

    I believe there is a skit on Kids in the Hall where you will need to “steal a car (I’ve got a car), STEAL a car, drive til it runs out of gas, and then pick a fight”. Wait, that was about an 8 track of Morrison Hotel by The Doors. Either way, Bruce McCulloch wouldn’t give us bad advice, right?

    now that's a sentiment I can get behind. I still argue though that both tenders would be far better if there was anything resembling an actual defense in front of them. They are both good enough IMO, it's the team in front of them that is the problem.

    So now what do we do about this? I am really tired of them losing. Any advice on how to calm myself down?

    Not playing good... Koss hit a wall, that was the gamble on a KHL goalie that is not use to this many games and the grind involved. This was something easy to see and mentioned before... Who knows, our goalies going somewhere else and they can play well... Dubs except for stretches this year has been tops. He was garbage here Broissoit in his 11 games in WPG has been amazing, I really don't get it. He couldn't stop a beach ball here. Cags after being traded said how chaotic is was playing here. Well the team is trying to make a push. There is pressure to win. To a point looks like this "pressure" is hampering players performances somewhat. No excuse though, I watched the Yotes and Leafs game and the Yotes were relentless, every player working hard. Outworking the other team. Same with isles and Ducks game earlier today. Since Klef has gone down we are getting outshot almost every game by a huge margin. It's not even close. Klef is a factor but not everybody playing hard is the main factor. Hitch keeps mentioning "passengers" game in and game out. Well if half the team feels like a passenger maybe that's what they are buying/believing. Until we get back to playing as a whole team we won't win. Suffice it to say the Yotes are playing hard and STILL winning even though they have SEVERAL key injuries. The desire and will to win is there. Here, too many guys coasting around. A few guys playing above their pay grade. The Yotes players can handle the added roles and responsibilities, ours can't, they never can for some reason.

    Him alone likely doesn't get much, barring a big injury to a contender prior to the deadline. I hope our mgmt understands we need to make a decision on G sooner than later for next year, keep in mind we do not have a defense that would inspire FA goalies to come here.

    wow. I would like to be wrong. So what do you think? 3rd round pick? or 4th round pick? Chiarelli might give up 2 firsts, but I'm not counting on any other GM to make a trade like that. sigh.

    Sad, but true.

    Both suck equal. I’m okay to say that.
  18. nocchi

    Oilers vs Hurricanes

    I don't believe he has zero trade value - he has shown quite good over stretches, both with NYR and us. There are teams who would want to improve goalie depth; Talbot may not be appealing as THE guy, but he can be A guy if the top guy gets injured. How confident is Tampa if Vasi goes down? We rail on Talbot here, but I'd take him over Louis Domingue.

    Oilers vs Hurricanes

    very true... And if Chiarelli had replaced Sekera with an actual player who could play defense, or who hadn't given up 2 first round picks for GRhienhart (sp?)

    Harsh. But this is a results driven business. Tablet is a goalie who apparently is a sieve behind a D without a true 1 or 2 (maybe 3) player. Who cannot overcome being outshot decisively almost every game. Who's forward group consists of 4 NHL quality players, 3 if you count Draisaitl floating half of the time. Tabs should probably welcome a move to almost anywhere else where he wouldn't have to overcome the shortcomings of this OIL team. What I don't get about Tabs is his tendency to give up the first goal so many times over the last two years. I can't sugar-coat that fact. (as much as Rob Brown <Ched> wants to... Brown is more of a homer than Stauffer) Too bad Tabs probably has zero trade value.

    If Lucic was scoring at his previous regular pace, few on the OMB would be complaining about that trade

    Rebuild v4.0

    Oilers mgmt internal audit, circa 2007-19. I'm with deutch, we need an actual authority; a dictator, to be blunt. You can have assistant chefs, but there needs to be a head chef. Sure, Katz is the owner, but can anyone really say who is in charge? This is a problem.

    Fair. I just hate the wasting of McDavid. It's criminal.
  24. bronco73

    Darnell

    He could be, but man he was playing very well for us before injuries hit him like a freight train. I'm not about to blame PC for injuries, that's completely unfair. I posted what could have been vs. what he really did in the GDT tonight, essentially if PC had NOT done the moves and trades he did and drafted instead, we could have seen this: Hall, Eberle, Barzal, Juolevi, Dermott all on this roster instead of Larsson, Puljujarvi and Spooner That's 3 high end forwards and two future high end defenders instead of 1 average defender, 1 wasted roster spot forward, and 1 failure of a prospect. EDIT TO ADD: Yes I campaigned to see Eberle moved as well, that's on me. But I don't get paid to be the guy who knows the right thing to do, that's on PC

    I think Sekera should be on your list for a good move that turned out horrible. in 2016-17 when Sekera played 80 games and Lucic scored 50 points. Then Sekera fell apart, Lucic stopped producing, and we picked JP at #4. These 3 moves, IMO, are the 3 that have contributed more to our current situation, than anything else

    No way to put lipstick on this porker... OIL goaltending is not good enough. That said, the forwards didn't get their 1st shot on net until after the 10 minute mark. Draisaitl was HORRIBLE. At least until Hitch demoted him to centre Kass/Khaira. McD was on an island by himself out there. He had no one to pass to. And the D? wow... soft, soft, soft. Bad decisions everywhere. No one was good. Prediction: If PC isn't fired before the Wings game on Tuesday, he will be fired after the OIL give up another 6 goals vs another league doormat.
