True. But a d-man or two more is required.

HF is having a real fun time tearing J. Schultz a new a**hole on the main boards. Ducks fans are wetting themselves with pleasure in that thread.

That's one of the awesome side effects of being a fan of this team. Watching rude, awful, posters flame your team and not being able to say a damn thing about it. Life is good for an Oilers fan right now.

Except that really wasn't the case yesterday. The Oilers got a ton of their shots and shot attempts from what would be considered prime scoring positions. Check out the shot tracker at TSN and look at the shots and blocked shots.

Yes MacT should have kept Kreuger on for special teams help. Or Eakins should review what system he used and copy it. If it ain't broke, why try to fix it?
Eakins, supposedly chose to keep Krueger's and Renney's three assistants, you would think that one of them would have saved a copy.

Well, Schultz deserves it. Soft, brain-dead garbage. Fits in perfectly.

Why even go read a thread like that? What are you going to gain from it?

The way I look at it is I don't need fans of other teams telling me the Oilers suck, I get enough of that from Oilers fans here and on twitter.

Schultz has been brutal like the rest of the team, but it still sucks to see all that on a player of yours.

Flaming of the Oilers is apparently okay on the main boards. I can't help myself sometimes and read when I know it's just going to annoy me.

J.Schultz hasn't been very good this year, but again like Yakupov, he has less than 82 games under him. This is probably more important to note for a defensemen than a winger, and 'worst defender in the NHL' is incredibly laughable.

He's hit a rough patch and I'm sure he'd have an easier adjustment if he had better veterans to play with than Ference/Smid.

Things said on the main boards (not verbatim):

"Ference is the worst captain in the NHL"
"Ference isn't even good enough to be a bottom pairing D some nights"
"The oilers are the worst team in the NHL"
"J.Schultz is the worst defenseman in the NHL, and he is killing the team"
"Hi I'm a HF-Troll, and I'm the product of several generations of interbreeding"

But to be fair the average age of most main boarders is 16 and the average iq flutters around 80.

Oilers are 3 points back of 2nd last in the West...

...yet if they were in the East they would be 2 points back of 9th and only 3 points back of a playoff spot.

Ridiculous.

It's been established for years that the Eastern conference is a clownshow.

Unfortunately we're the only Western team with a losing record against them.
