    Oilers vs Hurricanes

    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.

    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

    Just imagine this team right now if: Hall for Larsson had never happened PC drafted Juolevi instead of Puljujarvi to address the missing D from the cancelled Hall trade Two firsts had not gone to the Islanders for Reinhart, and PC drafted Barzal and Dermott instead Eberle stayed instead of trading for Strome then Spooner We'd still have Hall AND Eberle plus added Barzal, and have two excellent defenders in Juolevi and Dermott Spooner is a waste of a roster spot and Puljujarvi is starting to look like a failure of a pick. Hall, Eberle, Barzal, Juolevi, Dermott for Larsson, Puljujarvi and Spooner. That's bad management if I've ever seen it.

    EXACTLY. thank you. The blame the goalie menatlity with this fanbase has to change. It's just like the management with it's blame the coach scapegoat. All it results in is patchwork fixes that don't address the REAL problems.

    Ya that's just wrong. You have a bias against one goaltender, which I totally understand considering Talbot's history here.. but it's still inaccurate. Talbots last 10 games: 1 shutout, 29 GA, .888 SV% Koskinens last 10 games: 0 shutouts, 32 GA, .809 SV% TALBOT: KOSKINEN:

    nah... he could make any promises he wants and not have to actually do it, it's not like this team has any hope whatsoever of making playoffs.

    Kassian, the only Oiler to actually show up tonight, scores a goal. Good for him, he deserves it.

    I read this, and sighed, with a tear developing in my left eye. truth.

    the rest of the team that you have not listed here wouldn't get us a second rounder. That isn't how this team is going to get fixed. It has to start at the top. Gut everything up there. New management and new scouting department. Deploy those scouts en force around the planet to find anybody with some talent that hasn't been found by the other 30 teams. We aren't trading our way out of this, and the drafting is going to take another decade.

    we don't have enough blue chip players of course. It's a tough market and other GM's aren't out to help us... I'm feeling a Draisaitl for Zack Hyman type of a trade coming up.

    does Koskinen suck too? he's let as many in as Talbot tonight, and he has a worse save percentage tonight.... Honestly I don't think half of our garbage lineup has to go... I think it's more than half.

    Oilers vs Hurricanes

    ya you are right. all we gotta do is trade for a decent goalie... or wait we have one. Just bench Talbot. THEN we start winning. THEN we make playoffs. Had I only known it would be so simple. You got one heck of an eye for the issues my friend. Great call.

    usually people get out of their bed to avoid a nightmare, on game nights it appears oilers fans are the opposite. it is literally the worst I have ever seen this team play.
