Sometimes I can't tell if we complain more when we're winning or when we're losing.

God, don't get me started.

I've been freaking out over this for as long as games have been on sportsnet. They maybe show half of the faceoffs due to some stupid graphic or insignificant replay being shown instead.

I honestly don't give two ***** where the Oilers are ranked in shot blocks when I can hear the play going on in the background.

Couldn't be a coincidence that he finally finds some game when he gets on a line with Gagner?
I believe that they compliment each other very well, however when he was playing with RNH and Eberle for a short stretch IMO he was equally impressive, he doesn't owe his success to Gagner and vice versa. TBH I feel bad for RNH and Eberle having to play with Harski, Smyth, and Jones. They need someone more like Paajarvi or Hall on that line. Give Horc and Hemsky Jones or Smyth and move Hall back onto that line IMO.

For a fan base who gets so much flack from opposing fans, we sure bicker amongst ourselves a lot haha

I agree. As much as I love Jones, he has killed every passing play on that first line so far tonight. Just can't keep up with those two.

I feel like when we're winning, we joke more, but we so often lose that people get confused as to what is actual criticism vs poking fun.

Nice to see Dubnyk isn't too shook. Made a huge save on that PP at the end of the period.

I'm watching the Avalanche broadcast and... they're making excuses for Landeskog's gaffe on the Horcoff goal. "Even elite players like Gabriel Landeskog can catch ruts in the ice when they're turning quickly. Here's how it happened." *proceeds to show slow-motion video of Landeskog catching supposed rut in the ice*

I wanted to refrain from the Landeskog stuff but I just thought that that in between periods segment was... interesting to say the least.

He's a fourth liner. Let him play his role and he will do well. Put Harto with those guys. He has the hands and the swagger.

Yeah, today earlier in the GDT I called RNH Daigle and like eight people jumped on me haha.

I guess I'm a bit hard on him but I obviously don't hate RNH

Harski and Smyth haven't been any better when put in that role. They need a winger with speed, size, and hands there who also crashes the net. Hall hasn't crashed the net much at all this year, and Jones doesn't look like himself this season yet IMO. Harski looks like he belongs in OKC and Smyth at his own retirement party.

Yep Dubnyk has looked good to me so far. 0 goals let in yet means no soft goals for anyone to ***** about.

That Landeskog move on the Horcoff goal is funnier every time I watch it.

I think Gagner is playing this way because he wants to stay here and be part of this club.

I don't think he liked being on the trading block much. Was a wake up call perhaps for the young un.

No. They weren't. Watch his goals on his NHL.com profile. There was maybe one quick snapshot. But no one timer

One of the Oilers broadcasters mentioned one of the players claiming they have some of the worst ice in the league
