I feel so stupid for thinking that they might come out in the third blazing, completely balls out to try and be a spoiler. Nope, down the whole third period and sitting back playing prevent defence. Anytime we had the puck it's like our offensive players were genuinely surprised to have it going the other way.
The refs gave us our makeup call finally and of course we just crapped it down the tubes.
Did Ryan Smyth have money on the game tonight? Does he still play for the Kings? Because it sure looked like it after trying to rub Dubnyk out and then breaking up Oilers offensive chance after offensive chance.
I'm so mad. If I were a season ticket holder, what would be the reason to renew, what will be the breaking point before that building is half empty? How could it get worse? So mad, so tired of it.
Dubnyk was in full spoiler mode and we just played like junk. Two nothing games to end the season. Woohoo. I don't even care if hockey comes back now.
I thought Schultz was good tonight, Teubert was decent as well. Dubnyk, looking better and better as the season goes on.
Now we have a top 3 draft spot locked up, thats a positive at least.
Veterans: We need to get rid of Horcoff, Belanger, Smyth, at the very least. Possibly dump Khabby if another team gets desperate and will take a chance on him. Whitney, I want to see what he has first after a full summer of rehab. Also, we need a 2C with some size, so that mean Gagner is probably done as well.
Oilers clinch the #5 pick or better in the draft (even after the draft lottery). The highest the Oilers can finish now is 27th out of 30 teams. These losses are annoying but drafting Murray will help me soothe some pain.
