Really bad execution by Oilers tonight though. A stubborn determination the whole game to force plays instead of be patient and work the cycle. We needed to possess the puck a lot more and be content with that. We rarely were.

Hemsky, awful night. N Schultz? ****, why is this guy here? Useless all night, typified by Gagner working the puck well in the 3rd, evading 3 Canucks, retaining puck, after hard work makes a routine pass back to the point which N Schultz, half asleep flubs...That play typified the execution on the night.
Ya that was a great play by Gagner. He took a nothing situation and fought to create something decent out of it. N. Schultz is just brutal in the offensive zone period.

Also agree on Hemsky. He has been completely lifeless since the Columbus game. Not sure what the nagging injury is, but I think he needs to be demoted and have Yakupov take his spot on that line.
