So damn predictable. What the hell are we doing sitting back in the 3rd like always. Oilers literally just stood there and allowed Detroit to do whatever they wanted in the 3rd. Losses like this are not acceptable. Gagner, Whitney, didn't see who the 2nd dman were, were coasting on the winner. It's a shame too because they played really well through 40.

They need to effing stop sitting on leads in the 3rd. They aren't good enough to do that and get beaten every damn time when that happens.

He took the Columbus Blue Jackets, the worst team in the history of hockey, to the playoffs. He has the Blues, a young team with skill like the Oilers, in comfortably right now. He doesn't need anything, except the ability to rule with decree and take the trash out

Petry got 25:03 TOI and J. Schultz only got 17:46 TOI.

Smyth got 17:37 TOI and again Yakupov only gets 11:23 TOI.


Take away Hall from this club, you won't win a game for the rest of the season.


******* refs didn't help.

Eh. They fired Quinn because the team had the worst finish in franchise history.

I blame a lot of things going wrong with this rebuild on Tambellini. I don't think he's qualified to be a GM at all. Outside of Schultz, his signings have been horrible and he has no idea what this team needs and worse, if he does know what this team needs, he either won't get it or can't get it.

Maybe he figured that a defensive minded coach would improve our defensive play. I don't know.

None of our coaches are "offensive masterminds."

You didn't plan on sitting back, yet putting Smyth on the 1st line is going to generate sustained offensive zone time. Right...

Unbelievable

Man, I have been saying this same thing for years now. When you have 3 1st overall, offensively skilled skaters on your team, you build your team around them. Tambellini has been trying to fit a square peg in a round hole for years now. We need a coach who will accommodate the drafted players we've built this team around. This is insanity.

The bolded is such a horse **** thing to say. If you didn't have any plans on sitting back then you wouldn't put Smyth/Brown out there instead of Yakupov.

It's a bright neon ****ing sign to everyone in the building. The fans, and the players on both sides. "WE ARE PLAYING NOT TO LOSE"

That has nothing to do with anything tho. They were up and dominating the game after two periods. Krueger decides to play, "not to lose hockey" rather than, let's get that stake in the heart to win this game! Started the 3rd with none of the lines that were dominating the prior 2 periods. He punishes Yakupov for playing an excellent game. Splits up all four lines. Made the role players into wanna be scorers! PLayed old man balls Smyth rather than Harti with Ebs and Nuge. Took Yakupov off the Gags and MPS line. WTH would anybody do that? A coach with no faith and low hockey intellect mixed with zero confidence what so ever!

For a guy who has a supposed reputation as a great speaker and a great motivator he sure doesn't take responsibility for his actions and decisions.

Only watched the 3rd and a few notes:

Smyth sucks..
Reffing may have been bad but we did take stupid penalties.. Harti\Horc
Team shouldve gone balls out at the end to bail out a teammate if they had any regard for Petry.
Eberle needs to wake up ... He is not even worth his current contract let alone the 6M he'll be making next yr onwards.

that being said, can't be too upset with this game, we were the better team and should have won the game... i'll take the one point and live to fight another day... at least we didn't have the dreaded "first game back" problems that we often have after road trips

Krueger's cowardice is unbelievable. It's absolutely amazing how he won't admit a mistake.

Not saying it does, just thinking out loud...

Anyways I didn't watch this one and it seems that it was a wise decision to do so....

i have. there's no way scoring on your own net is ever excusable. ever. that is all. Petry is constantly misreading puck trajectories. bush league play from him this year, he was having a brain fart once every 4-5 games before, but now he makes a cringeworthy play or two every game.

thing drove me nuts is the officiating seem to give the red wings to much respect and all non calls against the oilers.

one coach that was good for the D they let go was Charlie Huddy.

You don't "think"??? Seriously? Are people still on the fence about Tambellini? Is another 29th/30th place needed? Maybe one more season after this in the basement. He needs to be given the benefit of the doubt before we atleast have 5 last place finishes.

Oh my God, I must be in hell. This can't be real.

I will say that it's more our coaches fault. But to say that it is in no way Petry's fault is pretty out there. He scored the effing tying goal, and played the winner poorly as well.

Ya its a game of mistakes, when one player causes two major ones in the last 5 minutes of the game it is a little concerning. Hopefully he proves me wrong and comes out full of piss and vinegar against the Preds.


*I understand he wasn't the only one playing poorly on the winner, and that Datsyuk is amazing, but he could have played that better.
