GDT: Oilers @ Sharks 8:30 PM (MT) SNW

After dialing down their play against Vegas (yes they did), the Oilers now have to rise up to the Sharks and play credible hockey....for 3 periods.  Let's see what happens.

I don't think they dialled it down, unless you mean after the 4th or 5th goal. They emptied the clip against the Flames and still lost, and had to travel home and play in less than 24 hours. They got shelled because they had nothing left. Against the Flames, we played 7 forwards for 11 minutes or more. That's a lot to ask of 7 guys in a tough game like that, and not surprising they lost the next day at all. Physically and emotionally drained. Oh yeah, and either Vegas was sniping like never before, or we experienced a goalie malfunction...or a bit of both.

I assume we'll lose tonight. The Sharks lineup is much better. But, with that New Coach Smell, and getting away on the road, and the "backup" playing, it might be just the combination we need.

I'll watch it to find out.

Also worth noting, Katz bought the Oilers for $170 mil in 2008. The most current estimated value is $520 mil per Forbes.:

Come on man!...You think Hitch doesn't know the players??  He's a "coach" , once a coach, always a coach!... I'm sure he still watches hockey, and maybe watches the Oilers more than any other team imo,...Im assuming he lives in Edmonton.....Anyway, they couldn't get a better guy to conduct the team's heart and brain transplant...:th_hockey20player:

Hitch already has said he knows the team, has a plan, and 8 or 9 days to put it into place.  Being a local, he would be like everyone else who is a fan, and on this message board, and have strong opinions and a plan.  Once difference ; this guy knows what he is talking about !  (note;  I include myself in this mini-dis ;)  )  .  I think all he asks  for tonight is a dumbed down system, and max effort.

I think the Oilers go extra hard tonight;  what else can they do?  Maybe a win, who knows.  Kos should start, and that will give the boys Hope.  I'd like to hear the pregame strategy session and marching orders; that is the big play tonite.  

Go Oil in the Hitch Era !

The coach replacement was a good start but while the door was open Todd should have been followed by Lowe,MacT,Gretzky,Coffey and Howson. Maybe then I could have hope.

I don’t care what anyone says, Gretzky being here isn’t a bad thing. Unless you mean his brother

I'll concur on Keith, I like him and actually have liked most of PC's picks, he looks to be doing ok in that department imo but ultimately time will tell the tale. PC's trades on the other hand, well, yeah....

Anyway, It's the era of Hitch now and it's game time. I have no idea what to expect.:th_shrug:

GO OILERS GO!!

That's got to set a record for the quickest a new coach gets scored on

 

Before long this franchise will claim every last negative NHL record in the books... I'm not staying up for this one.
