I'm at the point that I would trade this entire team, Hall, RNH, Yakupov, Eberle etc. for an expansion team. If it mean we could also get rid of the management and coaching staff.

The scariest thing about all of this is that when Steve Tambellini does finally get fired after this season (about 2 years too late) we are going to see Craig MacTavish be named the new GM.

What an embarrassment this team is. This is as bad or worse as last year. They've lost 8 of their last 10.

13th in the conference and as close to last as we are to 8th. Can't wait for the weeks of discussion about MacKinnon vs Barkov and how they are going to step in next year and make this team better.

Man **** this team.

This team doesn't even deserve my time anymore. I don't even know why I watch. We will NEVER be a playoff team with tambellini as GM and Kreuger as coach. This isn't the ****ing swiss national team

Even Columbus can score more than one goal a game.

We'll hear from Tambo soon enough. Just before the NHL entry draft.

This is just. Depressing.

So ****ing depressing. Dallas and Colorado looked like a turning point. 1 step forward, 10 steps back.

It's not quite the same. Each year presents the same problems and challenges but we also develop new issues. Defensive issues... sure but this team's lack of scoring is incomprehensible.

If every game was like this I'd seriously rather watch basketball than this ****. Not only do we lose all the time but there is basically zero entertainment every game this season.

I'm not sure if Hall gets suspended, I figured that Olver would and he didn't. That said regardless of the point of contact it was a little late. IMO it looked like he was going more for a hip check but he didn't turn in time. It is what it is if he's suspended the game goes on and we likely lose more games.

That wasn't a knee on knee hit Cooke or Marchment style, not even close.

We wish, this franchise is even lower. At least we're better than the 1976 Capitals.

Clean hit. Shouldn't have even been a penalty on the play as puck was close to Clutterbuck and Hall couldn't stop his forward momentum.

Too bad Clutterbuck is hurt but too bad Hall got a penalty as well as it was unwarranted.

Announcers are full of crap and only are seeing what they want to... they say he threw out his knee... but it's obvious it was a hip check Hall was going for. Clean hit.

If one of the Oilers got hit like that, you guys would be screaming bloody murder.
The only thing that was might be dumb about it is that it was away from the puck (although I thought Clutter might have kicked it beforehand - I could be wrong). There's nothing wrong with hitting hard with the hip.

This was meant to convey that nothing will get done. He'll just go on an auto-pilot mode and step onto the podium with another top-5 pick again.

Man **** this team.
I'm a proponent of the rebuild, but ffs how hard is it to start filling in some holes and diversifying player types? Enough is enough, it's time for Tambo and co. to get the ball rolling.

They are teaching the kids to be 'defensively responsible' thus we never have a 3 man rush, there is always one guy back so dep he can't get into the play. A lot of these young players look thorughly confused, Eberle and RNh lead the way.

As a few of us said that the time, Kruger was a stupid hire. What was worse is keeping the worst batch of assistants in the league around and worse yet was Kruger saying how he could go to mact for advice instead of hiring a new assistant to replace him.

Season all but over before the half way mark .....again,.

A lack of heart. A lack of muscle. Lots of cutesy poo passes. This years Oilers. Man these games are so soft, Elvis Stojko has more grit than any of our top six.

Switch the top 2 lines up.
Hemsky- RNH - Eberle
Hall(hopefully no suspension)- Gagner- Yakupov

Change can be good sometimes

There's too much chatter amongst media types on Twitter tonight about the Hall hit. He's getting suspended and it might be a few games.

I don't get how they can say its a knee on knee.. It was clearly his hip. Hall submarined him. I say 2 maybe 3 games if even a suspension.

That's garbage. Wild players have done that to us for years and they never got jack for it.
