Hey Faceless Butcher!!

Hey Butcher, exactly when do you think Horcoff is going to live up to your prediction. We are halfway to your goal and he still leads the team a MINUS 5 after tonight.

GO PPL GO!!!

OKAY, OKAY!!

I'll back off for now. But I will be back in 14 games from now just to remind you!!!

OH, and in addition, seeing how his linemates have improved as well (Smyth & Hemsky, for now), I guess this should be extra special if he does not live up to it.

GO PPL GO!!!

horcoff sucks, people want him on the first line because he has defensive skill, well if hes so good, drop him to the 3rd line and put reasoner on the first line because when marchant was on the first line smyth and hemsky played amazing, so reasoner is like marchant so they should try that out.

You'd need to put a hemmie in reasoner to make him like Marchant...

Most of Marchants success came from his speed.

Horcoff is overrated in my mind but a lot of his lack of production has been the lack of production of Smyth and Hemsky aswell. The points they have scored have almost solely been on pp time and when they are 5 on 5 this line looks pathetic. No energy, no speed, to many fancy drop passes at the offensive blueline and not enough production period. For the first line they are looking pretty ugly. Mike York is the best Oiler player not Ryan Smyth. York was last year and he will be this year. Dvorak has been the most impressive player in the past 5-7 games and as a line with whoever else (Torres especially) they have had jump and success. Horcoff isn't a top 3 centerman in the league hence the Smyth at center debocle. It is not his fault that is just reality. As for Hemsky and Smyth - start producing 5 on 5!! They are invisible and that is being kind!
