So... I know the score is 4-0 but how has Bachman look. Is he sitting the bed or is it the team giving up good scoring chances

He won't do anything until we stop showing up.

Bachman has been decent. The Oilers give up only the finest of chances.

Worse than any season the past 5 years.

I knew there were holes on this team but I underestimated the effect of a rookie coach would have.

This team is an absolute mess and it falls on MacT first and Eakins second.

His line matching was odd vs Ovi as well.

He's the reason it's not 10-0

I'm no fan of the coaching staff, but Eberle has had 3 coaches in 4 years, all of who have demanded defensive diligence from him to no avail.

It's not one or the other, the coaching staff can be bad and Eberle can be a selfish player who hurts his own team on a regular basis.

Quite a contrast from Oiler hockey.

No he did not want Gordon slowing him down his hair flips back nicer when Kessel blows by the bench

I'd trade Eberle over Yakupov in a heartbeat.

Petry? I'll never understand this
