Watching the Hawks and Jets game right now... can't help but wonder what the hell is wrong with Edmonton's defense. Like, why are they so braindead and seem to make the game so difficult for themselves. Chicago and Winnipeg both play simple games defensively and have forwards helping out, each team winning battles at times. I look at Edmonton's defense and see a few good players, Petry, Ference, and Smid to an extent. Is it simply about their lack of individual talent and skill? Is it because of their lack of help/commitment from the forwards?

Has it been bad coaching, or do these players simply have low hockey IQ? Because other teams, even mediocre to bad ones seem to make simple plays, make things appear easier overall in general. It's very frustrating.

Our skilled forwards are probably feeling to entitled and good to try and put in a simple effort defensively

If the oilers lose to a back to back Detroit team after a 3 day break, does MacT enter shake up mode? Or do we just continue to roll with the hits. I'm curious to see where's MacT's breaking point.

Will we ever experience something like that ever again? At least in our lifetime?

I'd like to put $10 down on roll with the hits.

Until Ference starts heeding his own advice, he can shut it.

He was placed retroactively on IR for Tuesday. He's not eligible to play again (come off IR) till Nov 5th, against Florida.

Smytty was so good back then.

Also, no one on our team resembles a Pisani, except maybe Gordon.

EDIT: Samsonov was HUGE for us that playoffs.

Hamilton - Gordon - Arcobello
Yikes.

We don't have one line that will be able to shut down Z-Dats-Bertuzzi. This is gonna be ugly.

That series made me believe in the Oilers. Then everything after that... It's a shame how we have played after that. We had a year of a mediocre team overperforming and going far. Now we have a team that's underperforming and heading to the bottom again.

It says that the Oilers are being televised on CBC, however, I can't find it on CBC east or west. I am on Bell, and both feeds say Montreal at Colorado. Does anyone know if Montreal is on east, and the Oilers are supposed to be on west?

Anything, literally anything.

Hell, upgrade our 4th line on our ECHL team, It doesn't matter, just do something that improves this team. I'm just trade conservative as the next guy but I swear if we draft within top 5 this year, we are the biggest joke of a franchise.

Anyways, 4-3 Oilers

2 G Yakupov
1 G, 2 A Eberle
1 G Gordon
2 A RNH
