Peckham may be back soon too (and unlike the majority of fans that have dumped him for dead, I think there's still a good player there).

I don't think Hordi should be too dumped on though. He barely had any ice time. Krueger didn't want to take any chance giving him ice time. Can't say I blame Krueger much though... I don't think the NHL needs that type of player anymore. Hordi is a lot of heart and good intent, but that only goes so far.
Yup, row in a Fistric or 2 and ya got a tough line-up that can play.

Hordichuk on waivers; Oilers just a little easier to play

Rob Tychkowski ‏@SUN_TYCHKOWSKI
@RenanEdm Just because they didn't play him doesn't make him useless. Now the Oilers have NOBODY
Why? I don't see anything in those tweets that is obviously wrong. You can disagree with Rob's point of view, but the team did just get a little softer and easier to play against, also Hordy isn't worthless (third tweet).

Having said this, I do agree with cutting him loose.

Anyone else wondering if this may lead to the Oil picking up a player through trade or waiver wire?

Don't bring up Eberle getting hit last night by Johnson as that was not targeting a young star, it was hitting a player floating through past front of the net while admiring his shot.
Get rid of Smid. We can't have players who fight their teammates.

Really? You trying to tell me other players on this team haven't taken meaningless penalties? At least he was being physical when he drove that Flames defender through the net.

Hitting someone from behind after the play does nothing.

The young Oilers are STILL getting steam rolled on a nightly basis with zero threat of any repercussions. RNH gets flattened and looks hurt, RNH last night looked like the took a butt end , nothing. Eberle gets cranked...nothing.

And then we talk about all the 'bad luck' of injuries. Hordy may not have been the answer but this team has had this problem since Hemsky came on the scene and nothing has changed.

Apparently it gets you waived.

Multiple stick infractions in the offensive zone gets you a pat on the back and an "atta boy".

As opposed to watching nightly as one of our skilled guys gets run and we do nothing? If this team was not flat out stupid we would have been running players after the whistle for the last two years when the team was destined for the basement. The softest players on other teams can take any liberty they want with this team and know nothing will happen. It's pretty sickening to be honest.

And what would Hordi do? This is a guy that had problems fighting Stortini.

Hordi was supposed to be a bit of an agitator, a hard checking 4th liner, a player that could actualy play a bit of hockey and drop the mitts when needed.

He was never used in that manner. Never truely given a fair chance IMO. Especialy strange since Krueger said he would give more of those oppurtunities than Renny.

Hord did played bad but with such a small sample it is a bit over board to move him like this.

I think this could be his last stint in the NHL personally.

One team I think that should give him a shot is Buffalo. As one poster put it over there, "the Sabres aren't tough, they're Ruff"

Yes, small sample size, but he has 2 PIMs so far. A guy like that knows that he needs to leave his mark in what little time he has. He simply didn't.

Brian Burke is the key.

Hes turned his teams into mean SOBs. And plus it would be hilarious to see HFoil explode.

He will trade all our players away for American grinders.

Who cares..It's of little to no consequence to the Oiler's fortunes.

Even if that were to happen they still wouldn't play Hordi.

Good luck to him. I hope he gets a chance to play somewhere else.

Sure, but I think it's necessary to let guys prove themselves. Let him get back in the game and make up for mistakes. If he goes back in and keeps making bonehead plays sure, time to move on.

Yeah, it's upsetting. I was looking forward to how we were told Hordi would be let off the chain. Guess not.

You want tough guys with skill and every team is looking for those so they're not exactly easy to come by.
Hordichuk was hardly given a chance with this orginization, If guys aren't able to fix their game up with a new team then people would never be traded. I sure do want tough guys with skill, but I love scraps. I'll always want a pugilist on my team, regardless of whether or not having one curbs cheapshots. I'd take another Dave Brown on this team in a heartbeat.
