Man Glenn Healy is so stupid, how are we in good shape?
Because of our schedule. Majority of games at home (even though the oilers aren't good at home), a number of games remaining that are against poor teams. He mentioned calgary, which after a loss tonight may move them towards being sellers at the deadline making them weaker. He also mentioned columbus, even though they've been playing well lately.
He failed to mention we play the ducksX3, the canucksX3 (could be good or bad), the hawks, the kings, phoenix, and minnesotaX2.....
The way the Blues played by completely smothering the Oilers right from the get-go, when Stewart scored I said to my wife "Well, there's the game winning goal." This game just had that shutout feel to it, and it's not be ause the Oilers weren't trying, it's because the Blues gave them zero time and zero space. They are my sleeper pick to come out of the West if they can stay healthy and play like that.
@EdmontonOilers: "He had a good day. We expect him to be on the plane with us tomorrow." - Coach Krueger with good news on RNH
@EdmontonOilers: "Unacceptable for the kind of team we want to be. We need to react to this as quick as possible by winning the next game." - Krueger
@EdmontonOilers: "It was definitely our weakest performance in a long time ... We came out flat. It was a dream road game for them." - Krueger
Horcoff is asking for the fans support, lol. I guess we gotta hang this loss on our selves.
Well, theres a ton of people at the game swilling beer that evidently didn't figure out what they were watching tonight was a textbook clinic by the road team playing Ken Hitchcock Dallas Stars in their heyday type hockey. We've seen this before, but apparently a lot of newbies on hand at Rexall that don't recognize what just happened.
Probably, but Burke isn't a massive upgrade. If he was over anyone in the league don't you think some other team would've jumped on him by now? Why didn't Columbus hire him? Strange...
The Leafs are doing good and Burke has a decent track record. Also I am not entirely sure Burke would even want to work in Columbus. If we don't go after Burke, I'm sure Calgary will when they eventually fire Feaster.
It would be colossally stupid to trade any of the big 4. Eberle will turn it around if freaking Sam Gagner and MPS could.
This board is too fixated on the flavour of the month. Suddenly Gagner is untouchable and Eberle can't even fetch a top 4 d-man, lol.
Go ahead trade him to the Canucks or Penguins, they'll take him and then we'll see who laughs last.
I don't understand this at all. First of all, what do you believe the management need to do to improve us into a playoff team? Using Hemsky, Gagner , etc. who do you think we could acquire that could turn us into a playoff team.
