I wonder what goes through Smyth's head when he winds up for that slapshot.

Does he actually think he is going to score?

It sucks to watch, he's one of my all time faves, a real true blue oiler classic, but damn did farther time ever catch up with him.

And for that Yakupov will be benched.

Horrible effort by the Oilers tonight. Must've thought that St Louis was going to just give them the game because they were on HNIC.

I don't know.

The team was either unprepared or unmotivated.

Also the fact that they are highly overrated and not nearly as good as Toews and Kane.

Yak's reaction after the Smitty clapper was great.

Hall's been garbage this game. Goals 2 and 3 are a direct result of his turnovers at the blue line.

The Smyth slap shot worked some 15 years ago on Andy Moog. Even then Moog wanted it back, yet Smytty just keeps trying it.

Same.

Sadly, Hall, RNH and Eberle demanding out probably wouldn't wake this sad sack org up.

I'd say the 'GM issue' is something more urgent and should be attended to first. You can't build a strong building on faulty foundation, and he's the one directly responsible for that.

Or they just aren't very good and were completely outmatched.
Anybody can see from a mile away that this was going to be a disconcerting loss.

It's not just a size issue, its a balls issue. Too few have enough balls to give a dam enough to take out some frustration!
