Fire Krueger

Someone was going to make this thread eventually. Young player goes out and sparks the team's comeback? Bench him and let Ryan Smyth lead the entire team in ice time.:ra nt:

If we keep finishing at the bottom of the league, one day our roster will be so talented that our incompetent coaches will be forced to ice guys who can actually score.

He hates Yakupov. It's obvious.

It's a good thing team boosters don't follow the team to games on buses anymore. I think we'd have a difficult time finding enough short buses for the Oilers fans.

Krueger is a nice guy, good motivator, and knowledgeable hockey person so I'm not going to throw him under the bus or anything. But I do question if his coaching style is best for this kind of team.

Nice comeback led by YAKUPOV (lol).

This is the worst prepared Oilers team I've seen since the Quinn days. It just feels like a miracle if we can score more than 2 goals in regulation.

How many coaches in a row will you guys ask to get fired before you blame the real culprit?

Yes. This is the coach's fault. Again.

Best special teams in the league. 4 coaches in 5 years and people are blaming coaching?

Everyone here knows that the culprit is management...we also know that they probably aren't going anywhere

I'll take it though it looks like the Leafs are going to make the playoffs before we do.

If they had stable goaltending they'd make it for sure I think. That's Burke's weakness.

Krueger has done nothing to help this tea, win, we refuses to shake up the lines even when we cannot score. He made changes today because he had to.
In overtime today he didn't give yakupov a chance went with the same four guys the whole pp
I think ee would have won many more games at this point if we had a better coach
