Belanger out there at the end, of course.
Yeah he played. Got 3 scoring chances in the second period, showed great hustle to win a battle, get the puck out and feed a breaking 2 on 1 for Hemsky and Hall that almost resulted in a goal.

Then a brilliant saucer pass to Hall at lip of crease (perfect ****ing pass on a nothing play) and Hall does everything but score on the play. Gagner made a great scoring chance out of thin air on that play. To do it he had to throw a pass into the crease, in the air, through coverage, that landed perfectly for Hall. Try that sometime.

Thats just off the top of my head on a night you didn't even notice Gagner.

I honestly did not notice him much. Maybe 1 or 2 scoring chances and that's it. He aint gonna cut it as our #2 center.

Hemsky was f**kin garbage and I can't blame Renney for giving him an earful! The Oilers signed your frail ass to a big contract...start playing like it or else you'll be feeling the wrath of Oiler fans that are unbias and have a good sense of what is clearly wrong with this picture!

I usually like this kind of officiating ... in the Stanley Cup Finals!

Seriously, and this is not a comment on how Oiler games have been officiated specifically, because it's noticeable league-wide ... WTF?!

I have zero idea how that play on Hemsky was not a penalty, pre-season, regular season or playoffs. Just brutal. And that's one of many examples of abysmal reffing across the league. I don't care if it's the refs collectively or a mandate from higher up, it's actually ruining the playoff race somewhat. Never thought I'd say that, after watching the Canucks feed off the PP for so long, but this has gone off the rails a bit.

Not sure if anyone mentioned this but that line change by Horcoff, Smyth, Sutton and Potter? on the first goal pissed me off so much. Not only do they do this at least once a game, but they do it like they don't even give a ****. It's like they clocked out early and give the excuse "Oh but I was tired".

Smyth doesn't even dump the puck in properly and they go for a line change anyway, and they ****ing walk to the bench. I don't care if you're gassed you bust your ass to the bench, or at least make it look like you are. If I did that my coach would have ripped me a new one. Absolutely despicable.

That RNH to Eberle goal was clinical though. I think some people sort of take those type of plays for granted now.

As for the Oilers play, I thought they were alright. Pretty bad first period but a phenomenal 2nd period and a decent 3rd.

Whitney was bad ... dunno if he was imitating Barker or what.

As for those dissing Sutton, wake up. Perry deserves to get punched hard in the face after EVERY game (with the exception of the Olympics )

And Selanne whining to the officials after an obvious infraction is just annoying. He's a great player but I've never liked his diving or his crying to the refs. Play the game and shut up, Eberle style

That was honestly one of the worst line changes I've ever seen in my life.

That and the open net goal ... we basically gifted them two free ones.

I thought he was fine.. didn't watch much after he got dumped on that one play so maybe he didn't play well from there.

I bet the over tonight so I watched the game closer that I other Oilers game. Your vets are awful I'm sure they help your young players in other ways but they suck. Horcoff Smyth Belanger and to some extent contribute nothing. I know hockey is a game and bounces that usually even out decently. But the second period the Oilers deserved atleast two goals that just didn't bounce right 5 or 6 times.


I like the Schultz pickup though

I thought Hemsky was great in the 2nd period. He just has to start finishing.

Apropos that Selanne tied Kurri for most points by a Finnish player against the Oilers. Great player and he was going to do it any game now but it still pisses me off. Insult to injury.

Haven't seen the open net goal.. wouldn't be surprised if no one cared there either. (at least the vets)

Potter takes a lot of heat around here, but he wasn't on that line change ... he came on for whoever else was coming off (Schultz?).

That said, it was absolutely ridiculous and unforgivable, especially by the vets who were out there and especially by the D ... they should have realized that it wasn't thrown deep and therefore couldn't change. Right near the end of a PP too! Arggh.

Up until he got hurt drawing a penalty, non-penalty he was generating chances all night. He didn't get a goal or assist but he came pretty damn close to potting on a few occasions. Don't really know what else you want from him, other than the obvious: production.

The reason it bugs me is the NHL essentially lied to its member teams. The crackdown on infraction, holding, mugging, was supposed to be thorough, consistent, and ongoing. This was a promise to change the way the game was being played and to create more open ice and wide open hockey. Teams as a result specifically drafted speed and skill and put priorities on that over size. Because in the "called game" speed and skill was going to win out on most nights.

Now we've got stick the whistle in the pocket league again and teams that didn't pay heed and stuck with the bruisers end up on top. The NHL thinks that not calling stuff is at worst being neutral. Not the case at all.

Back to the days of the octupus garden on ice.

Production is what's expected of him. He has been given ample opportunity to succeed but hasn't shown any consistency whatsoever.

Results come with putting in the effort and I just don't see enough of it in his game. I'm not so sure how anyone can defend that.

There are plenty of nights where you can fault Hemsky. I don't think tonight is one of them.

Why not blame Taylor Hall for his lack of production tonight?

How many goals does Taylor Hall have in comparison to Hemsky?

Taylor Hall plays with a lot more heart then Hemsky. There's no debating that!

I thought it was Sutton and Potter on the ice coming off. I know one of them was Sutton.

In anycase, agreed, brutal decision by the D jumping off at that point. You can't have 4 guys jumping off on a partial clear while shorthanded. The two forwards are closer and can jump off on a partial clear like that. its unforgivable for the D to make that decision.

Oh, this just in. Sutton is an idiot part 568. Who knew?

This is what you get when you specifically recruit stupid D like Sutton. You get owned by stupid plays.

If it isn't Sutton its Barker, or Peckham or Potter. They're like secret weapons of suck.

How does any coach manufacture wins when 4 of your D core are an absolute GA joke. Its like we recruited multiple Strudwicks for this season. Just to dredge the ocean floor at least one more time...

Okay thanks. That's why I gave it a question mark . Just going by what Spector/Geno was saying, but I thought it would be strange for Potter to run back to the play.

It might also be a lack of communication, because this is not the first time they do it. Maybe a combination of that and what I said earlier. Doesn't matter though because they should all be aware, and they walked to the bench. If you are going to even try to skate back on the play, don't ****ing glide.

I actually don't mind Potter, I think he'll be a useful 5-6 guy as he does have the tools.
