He's the only one on this team that can win a face-off.

Probably has to do with special teams. We've had 54 first period power plays, 75 second period power plays, but only 33 third period power plays.

Take this game, take any one of the 100 games just like it the past 3 years and try and make any new observtions.

- Lose a guy to injury...check
- Score a goal early to give false hope...check
- Get hosed by the refs a few times...check
- Get run over with multiple goals later in the game ....check.

Even Brad Pitt can put together a better team than Tambo...and I'm not even talking about his character in Moneyball; I'm saying the actor.

Rough game tonight, but all you guys that are freaking out like little children, what did you expect from such a young team this year? Yes, we are not a playoff team right now, maybe not even next year. But with time, and a coaching change we are probably going to be a good team. Either have patience, or honestly, it's probably better for your sanity to find something more predictable, like baseball or something.

Oilers... Biggest joke of the league 3 years running. Only award they are ever going to win in a long time. Goodjob Tambo, Lowe, and Renney. Turning the city of champions into the city of losers.

The organization will claim that the rebuild officially starts this year, so we can all be patient as the rebuild has only started this (next; next next; next next next; etc) year. Be patient you *******s.

problem is tambo and lowe don't have to worry about people not coming to games..if fans didn't give unconditional support to this team, ownership might be forced to do something.

i wish brian burke was our GM..the guy has balls and brings results wherever he goes and believes in toughness.

Your right a 1 on 4 rush with a goal scored from behind the net has nothing to with the goalie. Stick to hotdogs.

Here's the issue I have. Everyone on the Oil bench should be pissed that the chance to comeback just got taken away and it looks like nobody cares

At least Belanger can win a draw unlike Horcatross. Belanger 65%, Horcoff 33%

How was it a one on four with two Oiler d-men sprawled through the crease deflecting the puck into the goal ?

I think the biggest problem is the poor play by Horcoff, and I hate to admit it but the poor coaching by Renney. Something needs to be done, and quick, before the other young Oilers lose their confidence like MPS.

F' these posts. Nod your head and smile while the same team gets friggin wrecked each game with the same problmes and just be happy as a clasm wait for another 3 years and hope the Bobbsie twins do something right other than draft 1st overall.

If you have a culture of no expectations you are losers and the oilers and their fans and their management should not take losing easily.

Yeah, Eberle decided to get a fluke injury. Just to show that he's tired of a losing culture.

Being out of the playoffs since 2006, nothing wrong with that. All part of the master plan right. So not next year, how about the year after that then? Judging Tambellini's assembling of the roster so far, I really wonder about his hiring of a new head coach down the line.

You contribute nothing so there is no point in engaging you.

Likewise. I think your argument is completely invalid and has no relation to anything, and you believe that, even though it's pretty silly thing to believe.
