Got proof of that, any young team will go through growing pains but that is one asinine statement. Oh wait, everythings fine right Narnia?

Skill is all well and good, but it's not skill that's killing us. It's team play. It's consistency and focus.

The 5 game winning streak didn't make us a playoff team, and this 3 game losing streak doesn't make us a complete doormat.

We're a team in transition, learning how to play NHL hockey consistently. We played it for 40 minutes tonight, and couldn't keep it together.

The reffs were bought, paid for, licked OV's balls on center ice and ****ed you up the ass and you can't tell?

There's no point to even icing a team, really , just have the ****ing reff do a coin toss at center ice as to who will win and forget televising it.
We had a 2-0 lead with twenty minutes to play. We lost 4-2. Refs didnt do that. Ive seen this movie too many times before. And Im sick of it. Whining about the refs is embarrassing. Have we had a disproportionate amount of bad calls against us? Yes. Has this caused us to lose tonight? No. We lost because our players cant follow instructions, they fold under pressure and play scared. Not because of a couple of bad calls.

Then why do the Oilers always get the raw end of bush league reffing. The Oilers ended up trading Greene because the ref was constantly giving him penalties and the other team got away with the same. The refs don't look favourably on teams that go with youth. The Pens and the Hawks are the exception. The Hawks because they're an original six and the Pens because they have Crosby. End of story.

You have battle the other team and sometimes you have to battle the refs too. Thats what separates the good teams from the bad teams. Good teams overcome adversity, the Oilers are struggling mightily with adversity. This happens in every sport with referees.

Either the coaching staff needs to try someone else, as it can't get any bloody worse than those two, or management needs to find new players.

The former is more likely than the latter, but the coaching staff is ultimately forced to go along with whatever management gives them.

Which are crap players.

O'Sullivan is garbage.

Pouliot can't possibly be worst.

"The toughest assignment", wow. Talk about spin. Talk about shining a turd.

Please give me the excuses for each of the other 34 games for why it's certainly not Horcoff's fault he's in the bottom 10 for plus-minus.

Here's my explanation: he's not very good.

Occam's Razor, anyone?

The refs are constantly missing calls on the opposition and it's been happening too often. Frankly I'm fed up with this bush league officiating. Lots of penalties were missed on the Caps tonight just like they were missed against the Preds on Thursday. There's a trend and it's screw the Oilers by the stupid Zebras of the NHL.

Bush league referees. Disgusting.

I've got zero issue with the thread title given how blatant it was.

That's it, right there. That's all I'm after really. Like I say this team sucks, but the reffs...I mean...have you ever seen another home team bent over the rails like this one? And yes it made a difference to the game. And Gilbert's puck over the glass penalty. Sweet jesus the refs must just love ****ing Oilers over at home, it's the only explanation..

Did the Lord tell you this in a dream? I thought Greene was traded to nab Visnovsky but maybe it's just me.

please don't take this the wrong way.... you can't *possibly* believe that we played good for the first 40 minutes can you? we were getting eaten alive for the entire freaking game, it was just worse in the 3rd period.... there is no way in hell we deserved to be up by 2 goals going into the 3rd.... we sucked all game, just like we've sucked all season

and yes, lack of skill is our biggest problem - and its not even close really.... staios has as much "compete" in him as any player in the entire league, but he certainly doesn't win you any hockey games.... top-flight players win you hockey games, of which the oilers don't have any .... an argument could be made for hemsky as a top-20 LW, an argument could be made for penner as a top-15 LW and an argument could be made for vishnovsky as a top-25 Dman, but thats it.... after those 3 players we don't have anybody who drives results in games.... sure, brule has been a nice surprise and gagner is clearly making strides, but they aren't of a high enough caliber to win us games.... not even close

to say that this team has enough skill to consistantly win is crazy

Here's the thing. Those bad calls didn't cost us the game.

something I'm really sick and tired of is how easy everyone is on the goaltending.....it's not like JDD is out skating around trying to score in the offensive zone. He's got ONE ******* job to do. Keep the puck out of the net. I get sick of fans and the coach that talk about how forwards or defenseman aren't "helping" their goal tender. Well....wtf....it's his *** JOB.

He was decent for the first 2 periods, made some great saves. But so what? Why can't he ever stop the puck when he's on the post - that was a momentum killer, IMO

People complain so much about every other player on this team, i'd like to see the friggin goalie take a lot more blame than he does.

Riding happenchance.
The team that we saw on that roadtrip was a team that was earning their wins and taking it to the other team, i don't know why those wins were considered lucky, they generally outplayed their opponents and carried it over to the L.A. game which i thought that they were dominating until the go ahead Kings goal, ever since then, they have crumbled....

Lets just ignore the fact that Greene had a career high in Penalty Minutes last year with the Kings. (and was second in the team in PIM's)

But, no please, just go on with your crazy conspiracy theories, I find it hilarious.
