These games mean nothing to 90% of these Oilers players no matter what they say about putting in an effort and finishing well.

Krueger is far too calm and sees too many positives... not just in these games (they don't even matter anymore)... but earlier in the season it was the same thing.

I think Krueger may simply be too calm and "cerebral" to coach at this level... for this team at this point in this rebuild anyway. They need at some point to switch from calmess and seeing positives in every game to seeing negatives and kicking *****.

He has benched players... Smyth/Whitney and players have been sent packing... Hordi and Eager but I still don't think Krueger is necessarily the right personality to get the most out of this group.

I'd have him on a short leash next season... if this continues I'd definitely can him early. Honestly I'd do that now before Ruff is picked up by another team (if Ruff is actually interested)... but I know the Oilers won't fire Krueger right now.

Tencer was probably referring to Gagner smashing his stick over the cross bar after the game.

No, but some people could link you to a fansite that contains commentary from 3 commenters where they discuss 3 similar anecdotes of something bad happening. As it has filtered through HF, it is now part of the Oilers Religion and to say something divergent would be tantamount to heresy. I'm not saying that this analysis isn't correct -- the 'system' is certainly stubborn -- but for better or worse it has become ammo for the groupthink hivemind. Tread carefully.

I think we're close on that. I'm not saying we trade the 1st no matter what but if a Weber or Karlsson type are available you give the pick and just about anything else they want. (Except Hall, Yak or RNH)

The 2C will cost Gags and a good prospect but we need that size. I agree it would be refreshing to see actual NHL players on the bottom 2 lines.

Ah. I changed the channel. I wonder if his ole buddy Cogs noticed his friend's anguish. Probably not.

I wonder if Krueger is gonna be 48 and done.

The team that campaigned for him as head coach is letting him down.

If he isn't fired by the draft I will have lost all faith in MacT before he even makes a trade

This is a sad sack of losers. Kreuger is this biggest one. Always trying to talk his way around reality. He straight up needs to call himself and the team out.

We dont deserve this boys.

Would love Ruff or Babcock (If he gets fire or quits). Need someone who has been there and done that. Bad enough we have a roster full of rookies with a rookie GM and coach....

You mean like the guy who wanted to trade for Schneider so he could "push Dubnyk?"

What a ****ing idiot. Playoff calibre teams? Try "NHL calibre teams" and there was nothing impressive about the Ducks' effort tonight. Nothing.
