His effort was there, for sure.

I can think of one that's slumping and can fight, who plays for a team looking to make a deal according to LeBrun. His name is Clowe.



Honestly the speed is great but god would it be nice to see a couple hits a game. Instead we watch Nuge get laid out a couple minutes before the kings go ahead.

Sorry for that - mistook you for a Kings fan. Frustration is blinding, I guess.

Does anyone actually think the Hall-RNH-Eberle Line has chemistry? 'Cause I'm not seeing it.

At some point Oilers fans have to stop blaming the refs or linesmen for a loss........there is no league wide conspiracy theory to make the Oilers lose......good teams fight through clutch and grab play.....good management provides a team with the proper pieces to compete in any type of game.....time to stop blaming anyone but the players , coaches and management

So if someone "not in the game" touching the puck leads to a blown whistle, do you think that if the linesmen or refs get in the way and change the way the puck is going, should a whistle be blown and faceoff taken?

I know this would lead to a few more stoppages, and could kill some momentum, but it could also prevent stupid game winning goals like tonight.
There is accountability just not to the fans or media. For example look at who gets to ref the playoffs...generally the refs who have the fewest screw ups.

Your idea wouldn't work because of the fact that the law of averages dictates that both teams will have an equal chance of being on the short end with referee interference. This is a neutral party to both teams.

A too many men penalty is there to stop teams from taking advantage of having more players then the other team at any point in the game. This benefits one party and is why it is penalized.

It is like a broken record. I have been yelling this at the TV since Pronger left.

I do not even know what it feels like to have some sort of set break out plays. Just plaster it around the boards and hope for the best lol.

I am no coach. I probably have 1/100th knowledge of an NHL coach.

Why do these guys not practice this? Have 5 guys dump the puck in and rush then D. Get a third guy in deep to break out to. I don;t know. I see other teams throw no look passes out of the corners knowing a teammate is standing there.

It is so frustrating. I also notice that our dmen seem to get beat to the puck a lot on dump ins. Maybe it's just me......They seem so nonchalant back there.

Harti needs to leave the line-up when Jones is back. He's bringing nothing to the table.

I don't think the original poster was saying there should be a penalty -- just that the play should be blown dead.

God I can't wait for Ryan Jones. This team misses him so much. I want him and Eager on the same line.

It's depressing that this could be 7 years in a row of no playoffs. Inexcusable.
I would be fine with it too, but I am pretty much strictly an Oilers fan now. I follow the Oilers but I don't really give a **** about the rest of the league. I no longer watch NHL games unless they involve the Oilers (or Canucks since I live in B.C and like to see them lose).

Agreed!.

The refs that got in the way this game are the same refs that gave Edmonton the 5 on 3 powerplay that the Oilers couldn't convert on.

Could it be any more obvious that they constantly get exposed by teams like the Kings. You just knew the script going into the game, that the Kings would dictate the pace and that it would be a low scoring snoozefest. Just Gross. I have so little hope for this team because of games like this.
Yes if only they were bigger they could have somehow averted the linesmen from causing the turnover. The Oilers lost on a bad break and the guy who scored our only goal is the player most often suggested we get rid of to fix this supposed problem. I really don't see the point you are making, 2-1 games will happen.

Not true. he's a beast down low. He does need to bring more if he wants to stick though

Well, they sure can do a bang up job cycling. However, this cycle doesn't really have many endgames to them so they often go nowhere.

Really? He was the only one attempting to get a cycle game going and actually muck it up a bit. He had some beastly shifts in the 3rd especially. If his linemates had any brains and got to the slot when Harti had the puck behind the net, his line could have easily scored a goal. He was the least of the problems tonight. It was the fancy boys in the top 6 who got away from keeping it simple and were afraid to go to the dirty areas (outside of Hall who at least tried) who were at fault for this one.

Oh my bad. I still don't think it should be, you would have players intentionally shooting at refs to get a whistle.

It shocks me to think this, but can we PLEASE get Corey Potter in the lineup for Ryan Whitney? I'd say Peckham, but that would be disastrous with him and Fistric trying to get the puck out of their end.

He's looked worse offensively than he had in his two previous call ups. Unfortunately he's one of the only players we have that is actually good along the boards though.
