On forward, Hall, Hopkins, and Gagner didn't show up.

The only guys who stood out to me as playing better than usual were Paajarvi and Nick Schultz.
Agreed, Paajarvi played a solid game and broke up a few good chances against.

Whitney has been getting worse every game. I think losing his "A" screwed him up mentally.

I see him gone at the deadline.

Hartikainen up to the top-six for size IMO. Him, Nuge and Ebs had chemistry last year IIRC.

Harti - Nuge - Eberle
Hall - Gagner - Yak
Paajarvi - Horcoff - Hemsky
Smyth - Belanger - Jones/Eager/Petrell

Yak can actually keep up with Hall. Nuge/Ebs need a banger. Hemsky gives us some ability in the bottom six.

Wait - that's not what you took from this game, is it?

The Oilers were SCHOOLED. They had no business being in this game, and if there's any bs by Krueger about having lost by only 1 goal, then he isn't the coach for us.

Yep, there will be ups and downs this season. I think the frustration is just that we were playing against the Flames and it seemed like there was really no urgency. I wonder if we'll see a lot of these games though in a compacted season, where guys are just gassed and losing their legs earlier on.

- Honestly, we need to get our heads straight at ES. We can't expect to be overly cute and hope it works. Yes we're skilled, but the most effective way to create offense is through the cycle. We've been doing that pretty well considering, yet in this game we thought it's better to deke through the whole team to score. Or saucer pass through 4 flame sticks. Get back to what works.

- Stop taking stupid ass penalties. There is a ****ing reason we haven't led for a minute this season. Not a single bloody second. Stay at even strength and play smarter. The parade to the box by us is costing us.

- We need to up ante. I swear, after this many years in the rebuild, you'd hope that we didn't have nights like this. Well I hoped we didn't have nights like this. Looks like I was wrong.

- Whitney ****ing sucks. God he is painful to watch.

- Hopefully we can bounce back next game

Flames wanted it more being 0 and 3, and the Oilers apparently overreacted to the disallowed goals, because that area was uncontested in the 2nd and 3rd periods. That, and they weren't shooting again, which is an easy way to lose a game.

Smyth needs to pull a Brett Hull(realize the game has passed him by and retire), and Smid/Petry need to be broken up if they continue to make so many consistently poor reads. Hall needs to simplify his game as well, he's trying to be too fancy when he needs to be a north/south player who wrecks havoc on the opposing team's defensive strategies instead of trying to deke his way through the middle.

I must say, I love that picture of Iginla and Sam Gagner. I love Iginla, even if he is a Calgary Flame. He has been a great player his whole career, a legend for Canada internationally and just a class act.

That was just a flat-out embarrassing outing. Next game can't come sooner.

i think there is too much individual talent on the top 6. Everything i see is 1 v 5. Hall, eberle, yak are so skilled that they get frustrated when things aren't going their way so they try to do too much.

Oil need some net presence. Even a guy like Daniel winnik would do wonders. Horcoff is just not cutting it as a net presence.

They just gave up. I don't know why I would expect things to be different when the only changes the team made was adding two rookies and a #6 defenseman.
I've been preaching this for a while. Taking baby steps with the roster doesn't usually lead to a quantum leap in the standings. It's not like Tambo went out and signed Parise and Suter.

Only thing worse than Mark Lee is this team's performance tonight. TRADE 'EM ALL, I SAY!!

Bottom 6 needs work.

Smyth-Horcoff-?
?-Belanger-?


Smyth looked washed up out there. Horcoff was alright, Belanger didn't impress.
Petrell is soft. Paajarvi was a non-factor. Eager is hurt. Jones is hurt. Hordichuk, forget about it. Hartikainen isn't ready to be that guy.

Defence needs work.

-Petry's in over his head. Needs less ice-time.
-Schultz squared is solid.
-Smid had a bad game.
-Whitney is slow and not playing to the level we need him to.
-Fistric is just a body, he won't be a game changer.
-Potter should sit out forever.

I look at the loss this way. We're inspiring false hope in the Flames.

TSN says Baertschi only played 5 minutes. Why even have the guy in the NHL when he could be in the AHL playing 20 minutes a night? Or was he injured?
