Wow, Hall has been replaced on his line. What has he done wrong?

Hall is a turnover machine that's why he's benched

we should've kept Gerber instead of signing Danis.

read has taken his spot for the third period. Hall wasn't having the best game to be honest, but there has been a lot worse than him... I'm looking at you Giroux.

You can really tell how little ruff has seen these western kids play, he has absolutely no faith in them.

according to ruff, you're only allowed to turn the puck over if it results in a goal against.
brilliant coach

Eberle was bad in the shoot outs. Geez. Thought he was automatic.

In fact, if one of those Swiss boys ever come across a pretty girl, he probably yell, "eins, zwei, drei" and try to push her down some ice.

Well, that explains why Ruff has never won anything of importance...

Not one shift, even on a PP, with Ebs, Hall and Schultz together is disappointing. It's not like anyone else was blowing the Swiss away...

This is what's great about the Oilers at the WC; a different coaching staff giving them a fresh voice telling them the same things they've probably been hearing a lot from the Oilers coaching staff. Not that they haven't had a few coaches on the Oilers. But to transition to the next level of winning they need to control those turn overs.

Hall has got to modify his repertoire of 1 on 1 moves, the little outside-inside through the legs move he always tries NEVER works. He needs to start making hard turns and finding space laterally rather than going through the D. Especially on the big ice.

I especially liked the part where every single Canadian shooter shot along the ice.

Was waiting for them to go out together in the OT.
