quickly, as in after the whistle? hehe. Yeah I see refs all the time carrying crap around while making calls. I once saw a ref with an entire set of hockey pads on because he ran out of arms to carry things.

Are you serious?

They don't carry it around the ice - they drop it on the bench.

They do in the occations that they pick the stuff up, sure. Which involves ignoring the play for a period of time. Honestly, refs don't go around picking crap up all the time, that's all I'm saying. The chances that they're gonna go garbage picking is far less than them just leaving the stuff there until a whistle.

**** happens man. Not too long ago, there was a three game span where broken sticks interfered with the play, all while the Oilers were attacking. We didn't blame our losses on those sticks.

I thought he played a little better tonight but I still want a bigger body back there. I thought the play where he blew a tire on the scoring opportunity was pretty hilarious.

lol bannination

i rest my case

the quotes supplied by everyone here is enough to make oilfans look like tards for a long time.

my personal fav:

""hmm...I don't see refs pick up anything off the ice, especially stuff not along the boards, while play is still going. They have a job to do, if you didn't notice, that involves being right there with the play around the puck. Are they supposed to carry a stick around until the whistle blows if the puck suddenly comes towards them before they can get rid of it?"

If u'd ever watched a game in your life you'd probably see that 95% of ice debris is picked up by refs quickly.

bye bye

enjoy your texas cock


Congratulations. You win 5 internets.

Weren't you the dude chastising people for being arrogant in the big bad flaming thread?? I don't think we've seen anything as arrogant or stupid as you since Sundeep. I almost wonder if he was as bad as you.

Good job Oil. I had a hockey game of my own, so I didn't see or listen to it, but a win over the mighty flame is good any day of the week.

...the 3 point thing might be the best part about it, something we can all be happy about.

I still hope they go to 3 points for a regulation win, 2 for an OT/SO win, 1 for an OT/SO loss, 0 for a regulation loss next year. That way every game has the same "impact" on the standings.

I couldn't agree more 3pot wins would make the world good again and also give teams an incentive to try and get it done it regulation rather than tryinging to hang on For OT.

I agree..... but it would have hurt your Oil big time this year. Last game was #21 in extra time for them - other teams would have a lot more points at 3-2-1 this year.

.....I think there's some chaos theory here. The games would be played differently by the teams, knowing that the extra point was available for a win in regulation as opposed to OT.

Therefore, I don't think you can simply state that. It's probably partially true, but there's no way of knowing the net effect.

death? Hopefully it will end one of these seasons and some of us can rest. I was on pins and needles for this one.

I'm still not sold on Rolo...we only played one bad period and there was a lot of buzz around his net but nothing point blank...well other than the one Iggy clanked off the pipe late in the 3rd. Roloson made a couple of nice saves sliding across the crease and he made a nice save on Huselis but that LeClerc goal was garage. I rewound it in the 2nd INT and there was no way the initial shot was hard enough to warrant a rebound so that play should not result in a goal. Meanwhile at the other end Kipper was on f**king fire with about seven 5 or 6 jaw dropping saves. Of course then he goes and looks like a fool on the Stoll goal, ie even though Jarrett's shot banked off a Cgy dman and then he overplays the Horc breakway. So for bloody once it's nice that the other goalie bent as well.

As for Samsonov...he's averaging a PPG now, alebit a small sample size I know;) and Oob is right...not many other guys have the vision or skill to make so many moves. But for the most part I was unimpressed with 12's game. Don't get me wrong he's not gonna be $$$ every night and a few guys didn't look especially good at ES tonight but I didn't think SS did shagall until the OT. But that's the thing about having depth I guess. He was around when we needed it and that's the main thing.

Looking ahead I was thinking we'd have a handle on our playoff chances once the game's over in Col next Sunday considering we're about to play Van three times and then I believe the Sun game in Col marks our last BTB deal? I was hoping for three points combined from tonight and Sat's game against Det and then a win in reg on Tues vs the Dys. Then to split in Van and a point in Col. If we accomplish that then I think we're in good shape. The last 10 games provides another home and home with a team in Min that will be out of it by then plus visits from the Yotes and Ducks and trips to Chi and Stl. The other four games are home matches against LA, Cgy, Col and a jaunt to Det.

I'm pretty sure we've seen most of what Roloson has to offer. He's old so there's really no room for learning now. Of course there are reasons for a guy to never be a #1 in his career, and we're seeing some of them. At the least though, he's an extremely good backup goalie, so that makes him more than worthy to be in an oilers uniform :)

He doesn't control rebounds well at all, but he can make the first save, which is a huge improvement over what we had, but nothing worth long term consideration past this season.

His mind seems to scramble whenever things get hectic. We've seen it about 10 times so far. When stuff is crazy around him he has no idea what to do. If he's already down that is where he is going to stay until the puck is cleared or the whistle blows. He seems to try a little bit to do wiggles to slide his laying body towards where the open net is, but he just refuses to get up.

He freezes like a lump after making a save that puts him in any kind of akward position (and tips over if he's moving sideways at all). Saw that 3 or 4 times tonight alone. The old desperation hold your body together as tight as you can and pray for a whistle move. He's just not confident after that first shot hits him or goes off him. Oh well...

And of course, he sucks with stickhandling.

Really, all we have is a guy that can make the first save a heck of a lot more than what we're use to. If we can improve our play around our net (like minny), he could be just enough for us to do some damage.

Here's to hoping we get a #1 next year though.

Eng phys powers my good man.

I think you can tell a goalies mind is scrambling when they're laying on the ground flopping around when the puck is off to the side with a wide open look at the net.

No, that's too simple. Actually I have my own theory.

Maybe it's oobga's fault? He's focusing so much on reading Roloson's mind that he's actually scrambling it.

Maybe it's oobga's fault? He's focusing so much on reading Roloson's mind that he's actually scrambling it.


Maybe we could get one of those dog shock-collars for MAB, so that every time he stands in the crease like a jackass, he gets a nice dose of wattage.
DR's looked far better the last two games - not co-incidently he has now had 3 decent practises with his new defensemen. Communicating back there is key, my friends - once the D learns his tendencies & vice versa, it will only get better.



Happy to announce a permanent Oilfan vacation.

That being the case Peter's is going to have to show him what to do 12 times a night when the D stops skating and backs in so close they're in his lap.

Greene was the culprit I saw on the first goal. He played Lombardi soft along the boards, let off too early and boom. Rookie mistake. Bergeron just lacks the physical tools.

With all due respect to Longcat, derrick is quite possibly the dumbest poster on Oilfans.

Greene was playing his man to force the puck out from the back of the goal. I had Staois as the culprit on the first one for letting his man stand to the side of the slot uncovered & having his feet not moving. Not really Greene's bad, imo.
But I agree with the backing in concept - far too deep, far too often. Part of that is because the wingers aren't slowing anyone down as they enter the zone, but still our guys need to move their feet back there far more. Staois & MAB are both reaching epic proportions in this regard, and until Tarnstrom went down, he was on the verge of joining the fraternity...

D can't let a guy come off the boards free with the puck. Yes Donovan wasn't covered in front but the puck should never have got there in the first place.

Well, at worst I'd 50/50 it.
He plays the guy to a standstill & forces him to move the puck - happens a ton, especially from behind the net. Staois' lone job is (was) to cover his man, take away passing lanes, and remove any outlet opportunities. He chose none of the above.
Still beats the hell out of leaving (& then ignoring) his man, standing in the crease, and looking like a fool playing road-hockey in the NHL, imo.
