Hemsky has been good tonight. Pretty easy to look good when almost every other forward looks like crap.

So sick of watching Smyth play. He is so weak/slow/useless. He can't do anything right, not even something as simple as dumping the puck in.

Krueger coaching 101 If we are leading and it working I need to change up lines . If we are behind and not scoring I will keep it the same .

Maybe this will at least stop national media outlets from calling us young end exciting.

I don't believe they'll score this game. Or maybe Gagner gets a fluky one with .5 seconds left.

Something hugely apparent to me:

Everyone has been fanning on shots on our team. We can't get the puck to settle and make a play with it... sad.

Yakupov needs to seriously be on the first line right now. He's the only one with energy and poise. Krueger is an idiot.

Know what's scary?

At this stage in their development, Kane and Toews had figured it out.

Our kids are still .... kids.

Umm hemmer helped stamp our ticket to the playoffs once. Hall in his third year is still making dumb plays at the blue and red lines costing goals...

Where's our Hossa, Ladd, etc? There's a big difference in the situations

You guys need some size on this team, especially in the top 6.

Blues are being really physical.

Kane's probably still guilty of most of the **** people jump on all skilled players for.

Toews is actually Jesus.

Did you miss the 06 playoffs and the road to it? Hemsky was/is a beast of a player. Still don't understand how people call his deal bad. Not one of the kids has taken over a game like Hemsky can and does yet. Hall has been the closest IMO, but if I were the coach and I'm down by a goal #83 would be getting the tap on the back to go out and create something.

If the fans don't boo these losers off the ice after the game I'll be more pissed at them than the ****ing team itself!!

Both announcers use the word 'intinctual'. Surely that's not a word, right? Instinctive?

K, I have to say I used to really like and respect Hrudy but he is clearly clueless in regards to the oilers.

But Chicago had the best supporting cast possible for young players whereas Edmonton has possibly the worst. And this isn't even hyperbole either. Hall isn't a kid anymore. Eberle has had a brutal season though.

Damn you NHL Standings for giving Oilers fans false hope. What a bad team.

Ya just let that guy go to the net all alone. Oh great pass/change Whitney. He is so bad.

I don't think you remember who Ales Hemsky is...

Watch the highlights, he was instrumental to EVERY goal.

I don't care how fast Hall skates, or how hard he tries, he doesn't get results as much as a prime Hemsky used to.
