So much of what we're seeing right now is the result of mental deficiencies.
At the next home game the crowd should yell "Paaasssss!" when they have the puck. Maybe then they'll actually shoot.

Be honest Jimmi if the team keeps playing like this what makes you think they stand a chance, look at the quality of the competition? I look at effort and heart and I don't see either, its frustrating and reminds me of last year's team.

You should watch some hockey, the Kings are playing pretty damn good hockey right now.

If he did that this early he would be released.

I think he has to say...."Here is a list of the guys I want moved asap"

No question, but I think you might have missed his over the top whining all night.

They won't lose every game all month. If the ****ing pathetic Leafs didn't, the Oilers won't, but yeah, they're uninspiring right now, that's for sure.

It would seem that some Oiler fans never run out of excuses. It never seems to be about the mix of players on this team. Its either the flu, or MacT. Anything that doesn't hold Management accountable seems to be a reoccurring theme.

The Kings are playing really good hockey. If the Oilers cough the puck up against them like they have been doing lately Kopitar, Brown etc will score 6 easy

WE got beat tonight once again by a team playing, and following, their system.

NYI dominated this game because they played their game.

They dictated their game to us and we had very little answer to it.

I said with the way they are playing (worse then Minnesota the past 5-6 games) it wouldn't be surprising if we finished in the basement if they don't turn things around.

I think we are a better team then Minnesota but we are throwing games away and Minny is starting to pick up wins. We had a 11 point lead on the Wild a week ago and that is down to 5.

I bet that will come to pass soon, however salary cap restraints and other teams not looking to help them will have us watching this group for most of the season.

I do too, that combined with injury is why i think some players are getting more ToI then they should.

Cap has really made trades hard though, Vinnie isnt doing much nowadays .

So I'll ask again, who's calling EPS to get them down to the Highlevel.

At some time you have to start trading veteran players and get some new vets.

I have a really bad feeling we gave up all the wrong Vet's
Smytty
Stoll
Greene
etc
