We need a second goalie with promise to challenge Dubnyk.

I would love if the Oilers were able to snag Halak.
That would be awesome. Halak and Hitch apparently fight almost every day. There may be a trade demand there.

Hard to know if they are at each other's throats, but it seems Hitch's old ways are showing. Perhaps there is something there for us.

So we sticking with 12 forwards like it was reported yesterday? Seems kinda stupid to wait for injury before calling someone to fly to the other side of the world to come play.

Maybe they were waiting until round 1 is done?

There always seems to be a few more guys go over once it is done. Could be. We will find out in the next day or two.

2-0 Slovenia.

Hall probably sees the bench after that last goal.

People can hang onto the save % like it means much. I tend to think that its an artifact of the Oilers usually losing games and teams not having to bear down on us all that much. As in how many goals do you need to beat us.

Factor as well that Dubnyk sees teams like Columbus, Calgary, Vancouver, Colorado, Minny a lot. Not exactly gun slinging clubs.
What does that even mean? DD was top 10 in the league (6 to be exact) in shots against. Kid got shelled night after night.

Yup, embarrassing.

Eberle, Hall, Schultz and Dubnyk all failed on that one.

Ladd should be benched for being a plug.

I am guessing Smith gets the net for elimination rounds.

So ya, pretty much the worst game for an Oiler fan to watch. Even if Canada wins, the EDM crew are poorly representing.

It looks like water found its own level. Smith stops one if not both of those.

That said, those weren't particularly bad goals (as opposed to the one he gave up against Belarus).

Hah, it's pretty funny watching Dubnyk and the rest of Canada crapping their pants today. Hall and Eberle don't look very good but the entire team is ****. The great sniper Steven Stamkos is flubbing a tonne of chances.

3 goals on 8 shots against for Dubnyk. Classic.
