The problem with Ovi and grinders, is all the ****ing PP and PKs that will be called this year, cripples his lines. Ovi is out for the PP, the grinders out on PK duty, the lines a mish mash afterwards, and sure enough there is another penalty before the 4 lines are united.

It's an exercise in futility right now. While Oates wants his scorer (singular) and scoring lines balanced, he has to recognize scoring has not increased.

Captain! Right full rudder, 30 degree down angle. Aye, sir. This one's going to be close.

Will Oates be happy with another loss?
He's okay with up to 10 losses as long as they play good. What does "good" mean? I'm using New Jersey as a barometer because Oates felt they played better there than against Buffalo. Personally I thought Neuvirth saved their collective arses to salvage a point.

So this should last about only 4 more games the way I figure.
