It's because you are a fan of Exciting Young Oilers Hockey of Harmonius Victory.

I love the patented drop-pass rush.

It's like they're designed to be a perimeter team.

Man if only Eberle stopped on the man there and checked him properly

But why would you do that when you're ****ing awesome?

Because the Ducks stopped hitting. Heaven forbid the Oilers dictate the pace of a game.

looking at the players just standing around and screening their goalie

compare that to anaheim that actually tries to block shots

I guess the defense got a memo from Lowe to just mail it in.

Looks like they've given up. I actually thought they might try and go out with a bang, but it looks like it'll be a whimper.

I keep having this fear that MacT is gonna try to live up to his word and try to be bold by trading Yakupov for someone like Clarkson and a 2nd round pick at the draft.
Oilers need size and grit, but not at that expense, and Yak is already oilers grittiest star player..

Don't bother unless you want to have a good laugh watching this team.

Uhh yeah because a guy who has won more times than anybody else in management around the NHL would do something that stupid!

They actually had the ducks on their heels. Smyth of all people was laying hits at that point. Why they decide to stop and bend over i'll never know.

At the very least, both teams score in those games.

I was at the game against calgary a few weekends ago and drunkenly commented that Eberle needed to stop reading last years press clippings and got more than a few murmurs of agreement from my section

I think Mact's idea of being bold is getting toby peterson to play on the first line or getting him to play defence.

Ducks have blocked 23 shots... Krueger will say they had good pressure all game but the Ducks threw up a defensive wall. Can't win them all.

I cannot wait for the day that NHL finally gets the option to release players from contracts.

Harski is ready to take over Smyth(of this season)'s legacy.
