Yeah what a joke that was. Why even have Hartikainen here if he isn't going to park his big body in front of the net?

Yeah you can really tell how relieved the players were that he got canned and replaced with MacT.....

I hope that MacT and Howson are up for the task at hand, because this team needs a major overhaul in compete level.

What kruger really should be saying: The team doesnt respond to my world war II quotes in the dressing room, and i believe the future success of the oilers wears the number 94

They were plenty patient enough, everybody.

They waited until the last 4 minutes of the third period.

Krueger I hear is a motivational speaker. What he motivates me to to sleep every game the team comes out a ***** the bed. Ralphie sits back with that same stunned look. I am so sick of this coach can he go leave or something I don't think the team would miss him.

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.
Give him the C before he asks for a trade. If this #### continues, he will and I do not blame him.

Another poster here, in another thread, used a well know phrase to perfectly sum up Krooger: "All hat, no cattle". He talks a good game but, really, he doesn't have a ****ing clue.

I know the optics of firing a rookie coach are bad after one season, especially given the number we have gone through of late, but Krueger is a complete moron and needs to go. The team is always unprepared and his mantra of defense leads to offense is just not working.

Enough of Wreck it Ralph.

It's not even lack of size. It's just a bunch of complacent passengers who screw up the important little things that results in goals against.

Look at Gagner on that first goal. Just a complete lapse in decision making that leads to a goal against.

Then we have Petry who seems content gliding around while the puck is hanging out in the slot.

Or Smyth, who just can't seem to make a sound decision in the offensive zone to save his life. It's either chip it back/forward along the boards, or wrap it.

What about Eberle? He just doesn't want to go where goals are scored anymore.

I just can't fathom why on earth I see Smyth on the ice for so many damn shifts.

The team has quit. I'm a fan of the franchise that lives across the country so my opinion doesn't count.

MacTavish should let Krueger go and stand behind the bench for 6 games. Just to get a closer look at what he's got.

Looking good now for a strong slide down into the top 7.

6 in a row... still in tough versus teams like New Jersey, Carolina, Nashville and the amateur tankers to the south... the Flames.

Oilers are on a roll and I don't see many bumps in the road.

The only tough game that might result in a win is versus the Avs... but after that it's smooth sailing imo.

A caller just phoned in to Tencer's show, heaping so much praise on Tambo you'd think they were family. Tencer and Brown now criticizing Tambo now. Hilarious. I almost think the caller was a CHED employee setting Tencer and Brown up for the kill.

Dan: Lowe's and MacT's credentials in management stand up for themselves.
