Great pressure from the Oilers, still not penalties, but hey you know... not veterans or something.

Bet that shift wasn't part of Kreuger's game plan...

Great pressure but are they allergic to shooting?

Excellent shift. Like I said before anytime Hall cuts into the middle of the ice he's a threat. Great pinches by the D there as well. No stupid passive stationary plays at the blue line.

Does that mean we can call him Puck Face?

A damn shame that we couldn't have at least drawn a penalty on that offensive zone possession.

I feel like Jones is holding that line back at times.

Would put us 2 points out and 10th in the conference. Agreed.

I hate watching Smyth. Honestly, he doesn't make a single good play ever. He's done, how does he (or Kreuger for that matter) see this?!

RNH and Eberle aren't helping the cause either. It seems like they got a heart transplant in the offseason and have decided to cruise through each game instead of asserting themselves.
What offensive life? They haven't had offensive life even when paired with other offensive players. Jones has some speed and is able to cycle, Harski is great at cycling and driving the puck to the net or throwing the puck out front.

Eberle and RNH have been perimeter players, they need guys that are bigger and can win puck battles along the boards.

Smyth is still decent at doing the PK thing but I agree that he's way too slow to be of much use in the "chase" part of dump and chase.

Is Eberle shying away from shots to improve his shooting percentage?

Eberle just needs to ****ing go to the net.

It's like if it's not a 100% guarantee, he will wait for something else. Whatever man, you gotta just go for it.
