I think that this will give us an idea of how our season will go after these first 11 games.

So what games do they win and what games do they lose?
Lets hear your opinions.

If we continue to use a fastbreak,style and continue to dump the puck in and pass it to no one in other words surrender possesion without a fight or a shot or shots on net then here it is.
Fastbreak /dump in style Conrolled 3 transition style
Van-3-2 SO win 4-2 win
SJ-6-3 loss 6-3-win
LA-4-2 loss 5-1 win
CAR-3-1 loss 3-1 loss
COL-5-3 loss 6-4 win
PHX-3-2 SOwin 5-2 win
SJ-3-2 win 6-4 win
COL-4-2 loss 5-3win
VAN -4-3OT loss 6-4 loss
DAL-7-2 loss 7-4 win
DET-6-3 loss 4-3 loss

3W-8L 8W-3L


If we dont adjust our system immediatly we will begin to spiral quickly.This is a critical issue.As you can see I believe there is a huge difference in the results we can produce.This has been the same issue that has sunk us for the three years in a row I have been posting on the internet,and for at least 10 years before that.

The fastbreak system is NOT the best way to utilise team-wide speed and deep offensive skillsets.

Sigh. I just wish we had a poster here on HFBoards that had his own custom system the Oilers could use.



We never have luck.

I wish people would just go and tell Ralph how to coach.

I mean clearly they know better.

I think these first 10 games are going to be tough to judge any team on, or know what to expect. Without a full training camp or preseason it's going to take a while before teams are really starting to gel.

Oilers are 2-1 next game against CAL; I know we are all saying we are going to kill the Flames but the Flames will be coming out hard. Going to be a very good game to win.
