What is with him and putting players who are clearly having a bad game in the spotlight? Does he think it's good experience, at the cost of us losing?
Didn't Debrusk mention that Chabot was the guy picking the shooters?

Nonetheless, quit whining about who the shooters were. That's definitely one of my pet peeves about this board after a shootout loss. Hell, even after a shootout win people gripe about who was picked to shoot.

Pretty happy with the effort and point gained. I'm still going to be careful calling this team different from last year. Oil started something like 8-2-1 last season including a win over a 7-0 Washington team that was also firing on all cylinders. These efforts only mean something if we can continue to improve this season at the same or better rate than the other teams.

30. Columbus 11
Wow, thanks for finding this! What a weird stat.

Eberle does not require confidence to keep scoring. He is confident.
Most of the other players just may need the confidence of scoring a game winner on a shoot-out attempt

Hey - we kept Thornton and Marleau off the scoresheet... AND we got a point? AND Dubnyk played great? AND we came back from being down 2-0 to the best team in the league right now?

Good enough for me!

Anyway, I honestly think that the Oilers are a playoff team. Also, I maintain that Dubnyk is a solid NHL goaltender and if the Oilers can gain a solid #2C, a defensive #4D guy, and maybe a tough middle-six forward they're contenders in my eyes.
Thanks.. It was a very fast paced and entertaining game .. Lot of respect for your team.. Lack of cheap hits and whining was refreshing.. Almost hoped they would line up and shake hands at the end of the game ..

so unless we go 9-2-1 to start you wont be impressed??
Our coachin looks better.. Kids aside from Nuge look better.. The vets know their role and look better.. J.Schultz looks better than any D we had last year. Gagner looks better.. PP and PK look better.

One SO loss vs the best team in the league and its all doom and gloom..

SJ was clearly the better team .. But if we can get a point out of them we should be able to go head to head vs any team in west.

Pretty slick idea I have to say.


Nice effort in the game too, they are coming along nicely all things considered.

Looking at the western playoff picture as of right now -- this could definitely be the 8 teams we see in the playoffs come may, in a different order of course, but these look like the eight teams, give or take one.

Giveaways can be misleading. You can't give a puck away if you don't have it. So while giveaways are bad and not something you want it can actually be a sign your team is controlling the play. Columbus is doing poorly and so they have the puck less often in the first place.

Guys for the last time: if Gagner is shooting, he shoots first. He asks to shoot first.

This much arguing over the skill competition is incredible.

I think Thornton led the league in takeaways and giveaways at the same time 2 years ago

Yes.. hopefully EDM isnt the one
I think LA will find a way to make it.. Also I hope CGY improves a little and doesnt land a top 3 pick ..

I think Anaheim won't make it and LA will grab their spot.

I also think we will grind out a playoff spot.

Sorry but have to defend a fellow Sask boy (Marleau).

He is second in playoff goals among active players and 13th on the all-time playoff game winning goal list ahead of people like Yzerman, Fedorov and Selanne

If he is a disappearing act then so are most players

Correction: I was looking at giveaways at home, but the total amount of giveaways basically tells the same story although we are gain a few positions...
1. San Jose 78
2. Edmonton 68
...
29. Columbus 31
30. Carolina 28

Anyway, despite the fact that I agree on that this stats is a bit misleading I still find it funny . Would be interesting to see how these team fare in terms of puck possession, but I couldn't find that.

Sorry for going off PGT topic.

Actually, I think you're only looking at the number of give-a-ways on home ice.

We're in second for overall give-a-ways with 68. San Jose still leads though with 78.

What does having a bad game have to do with how they perform in the skills competition?
