Not greatly talented D-men but they could fire the puck. I haven't been on the fire Mact side but I am now moving that way, he seems to have no clue when it comes to lines or PP combos.
When you are down to 5 defencemen, some guys have to pick up the extra minutes.

Semenov has been horrible with the puck. He can't receive a pass cleanly, and you can't have a guy like that on the point.

Another DOMINATING game by the Oilers tonight...can't really complain other than they are just not executing. They will get there, things are looking better. At least it wasn't a loss.

lol. I do think we'd notice though. After all, we've come to expect 20 or so bench minors due to Craig's silver tongue.

You know, a fun game might be to come up with combinations he's never tried. Let's see. York-Chimera-Laraque. I don't think I've seen that one.

The Edmonton Stone Masons deserved a better fate. Unfortunately once again their stone hands betrayed them. This team is lacking finishers and hockey sense.

On the plus side, Mike York continues his hot play and inspirational leadership. 100% every shift, never quits, and can actually score. By far this team's best player. Eric Brewer logged monster minutes and played with great confidence. Tirelessly led the charge in overtime. Great game.

I liked Luomo's game despite the first goal. Simple game. As mentioned by others, Luomo's game mirrors that of Cross. Nothing fancy. George Laraque played a much more inspired game.

Minus goes out to Hall 'n' Oates. Much like the 80's music duo Oates' best before date has expired. Time to earn the paycheck although granted the good hands guy is lacking finishers on the Edmonton Stone Masons. Isbister and Torres must keep their feet moving to be effective.
Horcoff has played better lately but still makes poor decisions, turns over the puck, and loses physical battles. That said he has played better.

Rita has served his apprenticeship. He has shown consistency and deserves his chance.

I don't know? I'd say the 90 point seasons with one of the youngest teams in the league.

As for not listening...the suckiest players with the best intentions won't turn into Gretzky in his prime. And if they are really not listening to him I'd say the Oilers have a bigger problem than the coach. These are not veteran players who have umpteen number of playoffs under their belt or rings on their fingers...

and finally...

A new coach will do no better with this bunch than MacTavish. Oh, I am sure with the arrival of a new coach they'll put in 2 weeks of great hockey then it will be back to the same ole' same Oil.

It's the Todd Marchant curse that he's left the team with his departure. You know it. I know it.

When did I say it was the coaches' fault. I never criticized the coaches. Sorry HOZ, you lost me there. I my original message, I mentioned a few plays by some p-l-a-y-e-r-s. Please re-read it.

This to me says it all. The Oilers weren't just capitalizing on marginal chances. They were getting point blank chances to score that any other team would have converted. Brewer in OT. Semenov off the rebound, Semenov in OT. Torres in the second period.

The Oilers had 40 freakin shots and two goals?

Easy. If it wasn't directed towards me, don't "quote" me in your reply.

Happy New Year!
