Our first two periods were strong but the third we let some bad habits sneak back in.

Still disappointing loss. We have 4 days to regroup before facing the Avs.

The Oilers have no choice now, they are doing everything right except two things, they seriously need to find and follow the NewAge Hockey Systems Tactical Shooting Program, they need to add a new dimension to their system and they need to do it now so they get rewarded for all the hard work they are putting in every game. Tactical Shooting Program as described within the NewAge Hockey System. This is the final piece they need to initiate their scoring, their transitions and special teams are nice and tight, they are managing the puck well, they are finding a nice volume of shots and rebounds, but they are not finding the twine, its a simple fix, they need something besides the net to shoot at, they require micro-managment and they need the system to catalyse this not their own game instincts, just as our transitions are now consistant and system generated not piecemeal because of better micro-managment our shooting tactics need to be system catalysed the same way.

We are consistantly doing the right things, we just require a new dimension, a new level to elevate our offense to, and we need it right now, this season is slipping away quickly. We need results immediatly , we need the NHSs Tactical Shooting Program in place ASAP.

Man will this team be good in 3 years

This was by far the best game so far for them this year. I am telling you they need a couple more pieces and this will be a great team for along time. We never had any bounces go our way as it did in Columbus.

Our top line was very dominate, cycling the puck down low finding the open man but no luck. Second line was good, Gagner was so so but i still love this team>>>>

All those "Eberle unsustainable" jokes aren't so funny NOW are they? People said that he would regress to the mean, and that is exactly what is happening. RNH just seems to have no confidence at all, and seems really weak on the puck. Could be his shoulder injury is screwing up his shooting I suppose.

If we don't get goals from Eberle, Hall and RNH, we don't win, end of story. Our bottom 6 has no offensive ability whatsoever, even when they have a great possession game, as they did tonight, you know they aren't going to provide a goal. This team is only going to go as far as the big 3 take them, and that doesn't look very far at all.

good effort thwarted by some flukey goals to turn the tide...some people need to step back and take a breather.
efforts like that will be rewarded...but Yakupov needs to be better than that with the giveaway for the 3rd goal.

honestly, some moan, when we don't hustle and shoot, and still moan when we do?...like seriously...WTF do you want?

Like I said in the thread: I'd rather see the team play well and lose than see them play like crap and grind out at a win this season.

I was going to make a similar comment about bad luck but didn't want to get my head bitten off (made some folks mad this afternoon). Props.

Ever hear of a slump? It's not even 1/2 way through the season, so don't toot your own horn too hard.

can't believe how many people are blaming "bad luck" and the refs.
the oilers didn't lose because of bad luck.
seems like they played quite well and just couldn't finish, and then in the third, they were just outplayed.

We're oiler fans, act like it.
Act like losers and applaud like trained seals? Some of you guys just don't get it. Everyone on this forum wants the oilers to succeed, to win, to play well and to win a cup. You sure as hell don't have to pat the team and the organization on the ass after each loss though. Thee Oilers could be out of the playoffs for another 3 years to make it an even 10 years and some would be happy as clams.

It's utterly absurd that this team can't score more than a goal or two per game. Ridiculous.

If the Oilers don't sweep the next 4 games at home they are toast heading into a 9 game 16 day road trip.

And some people constantly chastise every chance they get. If you didn't get to moan over other people being upset would you post at all?

Bottom line, people want wins. Yes, it's nice to actually see this team hustle for the first time this season, but we don't know if that's gonna last, and we still can't bury the puck. If it bothers you so much to see people upset at a team that constantly loses, maybe you should avoid the PGT's for a while.

I agree with most of this and the Eberle stuff is alarming. That said, Jason Gregor tweeted earlier today that he got off to a similar start last year. Hopefully the puck starts going in for him...

No finish is the story for this team. All these supposedly offensively gifted young players, and in 13 games so far they have got to 4 goals 1 time this year, and that was thanks to an EN goal.

Everything that was making us successful in the 1st and 2nd completely disappeared in the 3rd.

This team continues to be plagued by the inability to play a full 60 minutes.
