A sobering stat highlighting just how dominated the Oilers have been so far

I was just looking up some stats and doing a few calculations... curious about how many times the Oilers have been outshot and outplayed seemingly almost every game.

Some stats:

I added up the totals of (shots + shot attempts blocked + missed shots) for every game so far this season.

Results:

Game /For/Against
1 54 61 -7
2 47 51 -4
3 68 65 +3
4 38 55 -17
5 54 64 -10
6 50 61 -11
7 47 76 -29
8 53 64 -11
9 48 73 -25
10 51 64 -13
11 49 61 -12
12 25 62 -37
13 59 56 +3
14 85 53 +32
15 42 69 -27
16 54 60 -6
17 68 66 +2
18 33 65 -32
19 57 71 -14
20 45 64 -19
21 42 62 -20
22 46 63 -17
23 42 73 -31

Total 1157 1459 -302

In just 4 games out of the first 23 have the Oilers had more shots + shot attempts blocked + missed shots than their opponents.

In only 4 games the Oilers have held their opponent to less than 60 of these combined offensive zone events. Their opponents have had 60+ in 19 games.

The Oilers themselves have only broken the 60 mark 3 times. 20 times they have had less than 60.

Overall the Oilers so far have had 302 fewer offensive zone "events" than their opponents. That's 26% more shots + shot attempts blocked + shots missed by opponents than by the Oilers.

Now this isn't all news because we see this watching the games but the actual stats highlight how the Oilers are consistently being outplayed and sometimes dominated in the offensive zone events... often even in wins as well as losses.

More events leads to more shots against, more scoring chances against and more goals against eventually as well.

I'd argue more injuries as well from blocking so many shots in their own end. Over time it stands to reason that injuries will also accumulate on a team that's being dominated and is having to play much more in their own end than in the opposing offensive zone.

Overall just a look at how far the Oilers really have to go to become a "good team"... one that's not being outplayed on a consistent basis.

That's the opposite of sobering. I need a drink or five.

So you are suggesting we shut down the oilers forum until they no longer suck? Or perhaps our positive threads are now going to be: "Nick Schultz was only -1 last night!"

If anything this forum is just as renound for flocking to over optimism after a few games than the other way around. This team is legit awful right now in almost every department and deserves as much scorn as people can heap on them. They've earned it.

I've been known for my optimism with this team, but Beerfish has a good point here...this team is legit awful right now.

The frustrating part is that we have some good key parts on the team that are seriously under performing...it sucks and it's painful to watch TBH.

Ok so we are praising the team for missing the net all the time? Is this what it's come to?

RNH - 8 points in 22 games

29 points prorated over 82 games

Hall - 4 goals in 20 games

78 points prorated over 82 games

Eberle - 6 goals in 23 games

60 points prorated over 82 games

Top line - 11 goals over 23 games this season

39 goals prorated over 82 games

These are the stats I'm most concerned with.

I think we need to shelter these kids again. I was one of the peole calling for Renney's head because he wouldn't play the kids enough and had them playing with . But clearly it helped their production to join their talent with some responsible players.

I think Horcoff needs to be the center rolling out against other team's top lines again (once healthy). Nuge is not ready, he is the clear #1C of the future, but either the pressure or the opposition strength is getting to him hard this season.

Hall-Horcoff-Eberle
Paajarvi-Gagner-Hemsky
Jones-RNH-Yakupov
Smyth-Belanger-Brown
Eager, Petrell

I dunno, maybe switch Yakupov and Hemsky, but the balance seems better to me. Especially if Freddy Kreuger wants to play a 4 line game.

nuge learning to play unsheltered minutes is like black ops 2 zombie survival mode.
u kinda play defensively at first.. u know stay in the safe spots, always watch your back.. play very timid and afraid.. until you watch the other guys doing what they do. then you stop playing timid and you learn how to go around ripping it up and killing everything in sight. he will get there eventually.

This is a telling stat, I appreciate the effort in compiling it.

What happened to this club after the crazy output against the Av's at home? I really thought that'd be a turning point for the season.

Turns out it was, but turn for the worse. They're been putrid since then. I dont get it

For me the most frustrating part of this is we're in almost every game. If they just played even half as well as they did against the Avs or even the Stars we'd get a few more points out of these games. I'm just waiting for the eventual 6-0 blowout.

And every team in the West already has the Oilers figured out. Collapse all 5 guys to the net and you're golden. The Wings did it, the Wild did it, the Blues did it, and I won't be surprised if the Predators do it tonight as well.

So the Oilers are basically a dude experiencing an epileptic seizure and Dr. Tambellini's big fix was purchasing and generously lubing up a ******** so that the epileptic wouldn't **** himself anymore...

Happy Friday.

Never in my life did I think I'd see a Call of Duty reference to describe hockey, but I did and it's shockingly on the money.

Surprisingly, very accurate.
Spot on. But that top line needs to get sheltered again.
