Hall is either going to start taking two-handed golf swings at teammates in practise like he did Michalek in that Coyotes game or demand a trade.

I'm not sure which one yet.

I want to vomit after listening to that.

I do feel for Hall though

Not sure who Hall thinks he is. Dude doesn't even pay to go to the games.

Six losses in a row is unacceptable and embarrassing.

I don't see why any player would want to come play for Edmonton. They would be better of not playing at all.

I really hope these Lowe presser jokes keep going for awhile.

Somebody should tell Hall that it's ONLY been 3 years and now he's impatient? Oh, I guess Kevin Lowe will tell him that.
So true.

If your kid puts no effort into their school work and fails you are going to have something to say about it.

This teams effort level has been sub par on many nights this season. Why can't fans let them know how they feel about it? Its not like Anyone is booing any specific player out of town, its simply fans showing their distaste for the compete level this team brings night to night.

You know you have a bad team when Smyth and Potter are on the ice when your goalie is pulled.

Did Smytty get a promotion in the third period?

Atleast Tambo is gone. Thank goodness for that.

He was more tradeable last season. If you are going to trade him at least give him a season to regain his game.

Of the young guns, it's Eberle and Gagner on the block for MacT. Hemsky as well. Paajarvi has the size out of those young wingers to earn his keep but this team was brutal. Gagner hasn't been bad but his value is at it's highest point right now if we can get him to a good contract. Eberle has been garbage ALL year aside from a few nice plays in the offensive zone, the other 2/3 of his game are non-existant which is not something we would have said last year. I don't think he's a player that can play the tough game mentally or physically when things are down.

And being down 5-1 after the GM is fired. On home ice. The message in the locker room to every single one of those entitled players should be: Give your head a shake, in the famous words of Mark Spector.

The Oilers made a huge tactical error firing Tambo. They should have let trollface win the draft lottery and then gas him.

I know I won't change this, people are dissatisfied and this is the way they show it.. just don't like it and wish silence would work as well.

Our kid got lot's of 'advice' when he didn't have a good game.. probably wished he just got booed and could walk away.

If this play continues, I would think that MacT has to look at the coaching. The thing about being in charge is that you can have empathy for the coaches, but you cannot let that empathy get in the way of a sound decision.

But at the same time, this roster is bad. Tambellini did a horrible job or preparing this team for this year. We have talent, yes, but our lack of size is letting our team get exposed.
