this road trip is a perfect example. I don't know when I've seen an Oiler team care as little as this one seemed to, in some of the games. it was brutal.

it's one thing to fight as hard as you can despite not being mature enough or talented enough.
This Oiler bunch lifts their skirts for the opposition on a regular basis.
I think part of it is on Krueger. There have been enough valid quesitons from posters here about his line combinations and use of players that I can see it causing problems on the ice.
i think it has to do with the players sensing that management is tanking.. again. they look at their competition, every team getting better and bigger while theirs remains too small and gets bullied all night long. they know they're gonna get beat up, they know management wants them to finish low.

i think the team has given up on management. i have never seen such imcompetent management in 35 years of watching hockey.
