I think overall his passing is actually much improved from the last couple of years.

I'd like to see the Triple H and 91-89-64 lines stick for next game.
When I watch the Oilers get odd man rushes... 2 on 1's and 3 on 1's... I'm constantly saying to myself "please please shoot the puck"... and then invariably it ends up sliding into the corner on a fumbled/broken pass play and the opposition skates up the ice getting a chance of their own.

I probably have a bad memory but I honestly can't remember a team that screws up so many golden opportunities on odd-man rushes as this current Oilers squad.

It's almost as predictable as seeing Belanger take a shot... I'm thinking "Oh great it's Belanger"... and even before the shot is taken I'm looking at where the opponents are positioned because you know a breakout is likely going the other way after he shoots and doesn't score for like the 100th time in a row.
