Game 4: Flames vs. Oilers part II
 
Continue here please.

Can we go boo them when the get back to town, that way they'll get the message?

Philly85 01-26-2013 10:56 PM

f!st. This game sucks. Boys are playing horrible. Jeckyl and Hyde like.

frag2 01-26-2013 10:56 PM

Dubnyk being just "ok" in net isn't good enough considering the questionable D. He needs to be lights out every night for this team to succeed.

And he isn't doing that.

karnige 01-26-2013 10:56 PM

oilers can't play against teams that clog up the blue line. flames are just sitting back

Ganz 01-26-2013 10:56 PM

I feel like Smyth right now, tired and lazy

It's funny how everyone keeps saying "same old Oilers, same old ****" It happened after the first period against Vancouver, and look how it ended.

It happens every time we have a bad period or two. People lose their minds and as soon as the Oilers come back, it's all forgotten about. Teams have bad periods, and games. It happens.

@Robin_Brownlee In 3 games (b4 tonight), Oilers lines 3 & 4 have ZERO points. Line 2 a combined -10. BRUTAL. This is NOT a playoff team!
Thanks Tambi.

They can't if they keep playing the way they have been.

If they just play smart, chip pucks deep, and get on the forecheck hard, they will generate chances and beat teams playing that way IMO.

Folks wouldn't be so upset if the Oilers could take a ******* lead in a hockey game, score first or hell, get some goal scoring from people who aren't Eberle, Schultz or Yakupov.

Go Oilers go!

Let's have a great 3rd period!

We just have to get one 5vs5 goal!

Old and useless is more the reality, but with his "name" the Oilers may be able to trick someone into taking him on trade

Lights out would be a 920 save % average would be a 905% he's got what? 880%

Terrible

And he's right. They have some very good pieces who are still improving, but plenty of holes still left to fill on this roster.

I can't picture any combination of Smyth-Horcoff-Paajarvi or Petrell-Belanger-Harti-Hordichuk finding the back of the net. It's by far the worst bottom six in the league.

MrWoof 01-26-2013 10:59 PM

Eberle, Hall and RNH are getting hemmed in way too often 5 on 5.

Niet 01-26-2013 11:00 PM

Would be nice to see an even strength goal next period

They don't have the personnel to do that. They are primarily a transition team and feed off of turnovers or broken plays. They are not a forechecking, keep puck deep, cycle team. They need time and space to succeed as evidenced by their success on the PP and their struggles at even strength. It's a one dimensional offense and certain teams know how to shut them down. This is where Tambellini needs to upgrade the team with strong 2 way players.

My reference was to JJ post. But yes Dubnyk is horrible. For a 6'6 goalie, he sure plays small

sounds simple but the oilers are a team built for speed. and more and more teams are catching on to the sit back style against them. canucks did it, flames are doing it

Oilbleeder 01-26-2013 11:01 PM

Also a general warning, get off each others throats. I know this is frustrating but keep it civil. If you can't do that you'll be removed from the thread.

Crabapple 01-26-2013 11:01 PM

Games not over. If we start playing 5 on 5 we can jump right back in this. BELIEVE!
