Not worried about the team.

You have to expect to be outshot when you can't win a god damn draw. I don't understand why Krueger didn't have Smyth and Harti taking more draws. At the very least, they weren't getting cleanly beaten on them like the other 3 "centres" when they did take the odd one. Losing Belly and Horc at the same time REALLY hurt.

Something is wrong with Smid. He's really looking off these days with his skating.

Just growing pains though, I'm convinced of it. I don't think the Oilers will make the playoffs this year, but I don't think they're a 14-15 team either. 10-12 sounds right. They'll compete most nights when they're healthy, and if Tambellini can get them both a) a guy who can win a draw and b) a d-man that negates the need to use either Potter, Whitney, or Peckham as well as cutting down on Petry and Smid's ice times. They're just playing too much is what I think part of the problem is.
