Ugh for **** sakes.

Dubnyk wasn't great, but to pin this on him now is stupid.


This team still isn't good enough, they are "battling" for the playoffs, but clearly not a playoff team yet.

I want to see out of this loss:

1. Changes, the Oilers have picks and prospect, time to get better. Belanger doesn't care, Smyth is Done and the blueline isn't good enough, improve this. It doesn't have to be a Massive move, but something that changes the dynamic. I look at Florida, they have what the Oilers need to make that change

The Nuge's importance, even when he's not scoring, is pretty massive, the Oilers went from have Balance that was tough for the Sharks to match to having to make Jordan Eberle useless.

Not good enough, but this team really isn't yet, and that's the reality.
