Chip and chase isn't working. Not big enough.

Actually, I did forget Kopitar, but he hasn't been lighting the world on fire this year, anyhow--maybe that's why he was so easy to forget. Either case, I think you're under-rating the Blues forwards, but that's your opinion.

Honestly have the Oilers had a solid scoring chance in this game yet?

I guess Hemsky.. that's all I can think of.

Which of his standing still linemates is he supposed to pass it to?

Krueger just kept the fourth line on the ice for an offensive zone faceoff.

Does he even want to score?

Stopping and starting repeatedly will not help him find someone to pass to.

Hemsky has generated our only two scoring chances.

Hemsky giving a ******* is our best player. Sad that with all these #1 picks we still don't have a player who can play as well as Hemsky when he's "on".

Well, I figured this would be a loss. The Blues can be a dominant team when they want to be, and they always seem to want to be against the Oilers. 'Can't say I'm surprised, but I still had some hope...so it's still pretty disappointing.

2-0. 2 weak goals. Khabi flopping all over the place in the 2nd one.

These lines seem to have no chemistry. One player makes moves and every one else stands around the perimeter watching.

Hemsky has never influenced a game as much as Hall can/has in his career.

only way for Yakupov to get more ice time - ice the puck

Hemsky hasn't really done anything yet this game.

If this is him "on", half our roster is as good as him when he's "on".

He hasn't in the last couple of years. He clearly isn't the player he used to be.

But he used to take over games more often than any of the kids have at this point.

I swear Hemsky has had the only two scoring chances the Oilers have had this game...

I had to turn off this one. Too difficult to watch this team when they play this way.

Thought you couldn't overly engage a puck pursuer. Jones should've drawn the penalty there.
