Barker played like absolute garbage tonight. That was a joke, how do you so consistently have just off gap control? zzzz

He seemed like he just had no clue what the hell he was doing out there. He may have a big body, and be a damn smooth skater but he aint got much else... maybe a shot he never utilizes. Useless defensively, less than mediocre in the offensive zone. Just brutal.



Get this guy out of here, I want Sutton back... He makes mistakes too, but atleast he sends some bodies flying doing it.

On the other hand, Schultz really impressed me. He displayed excellent gap control and his stick just had this presence on the ice. Schultz just seemed to always prevent the most dangerous option from happening in the first place... so refreshing to see a guy not have to resort to mad scrambling because he is just calm, collect, and made the right play in the first place. That is the first time I've seen an Oilers defenceman do that since Pronger.
