I dont post that much here, but I think the following should be said:

1. We are not the 2006-07 version of the Vancouver Canucks. If MacT wants to continuing playing defense first, we will be watching Brian Burke walk to the podium with our lottery pick in June.

2. We need to score more than two goals a game if we want a chance to win.

3. Players who have more than 10 games without scoring need to be showed the press box, regardless of their contract. Crazy that guys like Stoll, Sanderson, Stortini are playing a regular shift without scoring goals. I would much rather have Schremp up with the big club, at least he looks towards the net when he is playing

4. In hindsight, and I know it has been said before here, the worst thing that happened to this franchise was the 2006 SCF run. Basically we bought another decade of mediocrity for a Stanley Cup ride.

Not saying I am an expert or have all the answers, just my thoughts

Point #2, who is going to score these goals?

Lowe doesn't seem to think we need goalscorers, he's proved it over the years.

As a point of comparison the Canucks and Flames have managed to score 7 goals through 40 minutes tonight.

Also, I'd of given of given Keenan a blank cheque in a trade for Luongo.

Wow we score one goal again and manage to lose? Good thing we have the no Hemsky excuse because no team has ever lost a key offensive player to injury before.

I'm sure Nilsson will get ripped and possibly rightfully so, but are we going to try to take every 1-1 game to OT???

MacT's game plan has never been to win, it's been to keep it close and not to lose. He's looking for OT or the Shootout and not to win anything in regulation now. He's looking for a lucky break every game, good luck. The oilers have talent, but you'll never see it allowed to play here.

What's Lupul got now? 2 goals tonight, for 15 on the year and 32 points. Can't play that one out too much as we got Pitkanen for him but it shows you how a guy with talent and the ability to shoot can be successful in a system that allows for offense creativity and the player bing used properly.

Sykora? 11 goals and 20 points. He's way ahead of a pace to out do his success early in Edmonton last year before he got bannished to play with Peterson and a guy he didn't have chemistry with in Lupul.

Hey, Chimera... 5 goals and 14 points. Ahead of any kind of pace he was on in Edmonton.

Anyway, glad to hear that MacT thought that it was just the execution on a few key plays that did them in and not the pull the reigns in defense at the cost of offense bad line combinations coaching style.

Doug Weight the Oiler killer this year.

Why we have been so bad-

Lowe trades Weight for a bag of pucks. The one player I didn't mind in the trade, a goalscorer, Hecht, Lowe trades away.

Lowe trades our pick to NJ and they get Parise, not us.

Lowe lets Marchant walk and gets nothing for him. I think he had quite the season that year.

Lowe makes another bad deal when he traded Pronger. He should have gotten alot more back. One of the players, Lupul, he does get, seems to be able to play for just about everybody but us.

Comrie, not one of my favorites, but what happened with him and off the top of my head I can't even remember the return.

Lowe got rid of Smyth.

Hecht, Parise, Lupul, Smyth and Comrie would have all looked good in an Oiler uniform about now. Heck even two of them would have made a difference.

The players that Lowe has dealt, with the returns he should have gotten, this team should have been fighting for the division title by now.

Well since everyone wants to remember yesteryear instead of talking about this game, I figure I'll try and bring this thread back on topic.

2 goal posts killed us.

Anahiem really took away our scoring chances.

Penner looked great.

Hemsky was sorely missed.

Gagner/Nilsson/Pisani needs to be reunited. Gagner had no chemistry with Horcoff and Penner. Maybe Cogliano on the wing would be a better fit?

Gagner was trying to do too much tonight and he had one of his worst games in recent memory. Easily pushed off of the puck and rushed passes into traffic. Needs to make the smart easy pass instead of going for the homerun everytime. He showed his inexperience and lack of physical maturity tonight.

I don't think it was the two goal posts that killed us as much as the six freaking shots in the first 37 minutes. Toss in the world's worst special teams of all time for any sport, and I think there is only two people in the rink that night surprised by the outcome.

Remember those threads a few weeks ago calling for optimism? Well, we're riding a 4 game losing streak, 14th in the conference, 6 points out of the playoffs and 8 behind our draft pick. The PP is still dead. We've scores 7 total goals in 5 games. My math says we need to go 13 games over .500 to get to 93 points and the playoffs. Oh, and we're getting close to healthy too.


Over / under on regulation wins fir the calendar year ending Feb 27, 2008? I've got it at 10.5

I said at the time, this is the way it always is with the Oilers, they pull off just enough wins to keep the hounds at bay but never get on enough of a roll to actually accomplish anything siginificant. It's been this way for years.

because I get angry every time I watch this guy play knowing he was pretty much all sealed and ready to put on that Oiler jersey.

It's none other then HBomb's best friend (hehe) and Ana Duck Mr. Perry.

The deal to trade Perry to the Oilers was done and Mike Comrie would have went the other way when Lowe pulls a 360 on GM Murray and Comrie and tells him that in order for him to go to ANA he would have to pay his own way.

Lowe thought he was a real big shot at that time over this fiasco, but the egg is now on his face while Perry is turning into a force in this league and will likely lead Ana for years to come.

News flash: most of what Perry is doing in Anaheim this year is in fact due to his linemate, one Ryan Getzlaf.

The REAL screw-up on Lowe's part was the insistence on "five assets" for Pronger, when he should have gone for a "quality, not quantity" return. Something like this:

"You want Prongs to pair with Nieds on your blueline Burkie? Well, it's not happening unless Getzlaf is part of the return."

*click*

To me, it's clear who the elite star and the complementary player are on that particular line. Perry doesn't look a hell of a lot different to me from what Lupul is. Plus, he's a loudmouthed punk. 20 goals? No thanks. Anaheim can have him.

Ryan Getzlaf was the miss. Not Corey Perry. Lowe being a bigshot wasn't what cost him the true prize.....it was his haste to make a deal for Pronger and the fact he wasn't willing to play hardball in order to get a return that included either a) some immediate help for his hockey team or b) a true blue-chip asset. Instead of an Ace, he settled for two 10's and three 6's.

A 6'3 RW who is still learning the game and has now just begun to use his body at the NHL level and has 20 goals and 30 points in 39 games is no chopped liver.

I have watched just as many Oiler games this year as I have Duck games and Perry has carried this team in just as many games as Ryan.

Ask 29 other GM's right now if they would say no thanks to Perry.

For a team that can't score a lick a guy that can score would be welcome. Sure we have a whole room of nice hardworking boys that are defensively responsible and the team is bad. Beggars can't be choosers.

I honestly can't stand Corey Perry, as good a player as he is. Putting that aside, however . . .

We've got to let this Perry thing go. Yes, we could have got him, and yes, he is a good player. But the guy that Lowe got was then flipped to St. Louis for one of the top-3 defensemen in the NHL. That, my friends, was good trade.

I'm with HBomb on this one. The real problem was the return on Pronger, not the return on Comrie.

Straight up though, Perry or Getzlaf?

No contest. One is a complementary player in the Lupul vein who is having a very good 3rd year in the NHL (and a contract year on top of that). The other is going to be one of the best 10 centres in the league for the next 10-15 years.

It's a lot easier to find a Perry than it is a Getzlaf.

Chopped liver? By no means. But he's not a rare quantity either. Add in the loudmouthed, dirtbag, dive-artist BS, and there's a lot of guys I'd rather have on my team.

Example: I wouldn't trade Penner straight up for Perry.

How many regulation wins in the last 60 games or so?

Now.....hmm.....Mr Katz when you buy this team, please move the dead wood management in place. I used to only want the guillotine for MacT's head but I think he may need some company on the chopping block. Mr Lowe your mistakes are starting to come through like a Brian Burke opinion; loud, undicipherable and all over the place.

Neither the coach, the GM or the media seem to be too concerned.The media in this town is way too soft on this team. How many games need to pass before this team can put together 10 regulation wins? How many.....







So this is what hope feels like?

Ouch! Seeing that stat just gave me an excuse to mix an OT crown&coke.

Gator? Don't you mean Chopper?

And just for a reference frame, there was a stretch from Valentine's Day 1993 to the time Ted Green got axed in November of that year where the Oilers went 8-40-3 (8 regulation wins in 51 games).

News flash folks: this is a bad, bad hockey team right now.

Let me first say that I hope everybody here had a great Christmas.

7 regulation wins is 58 games and calling it not good enough is being too easy on them. If we recount those numbers in our head we would realize how ridiculous 7 regulation wins in the last 58 games actually is at this time.

It's time for Lowe to go. How he managed to get extended for 4 more years is beyound me.

G2K= $100

clapping

that is absolutly atrocious and embarrassing...if this organization had any accountability heads would roll but this team has ZERO

It's utterly amazing what the GM and Head Coach can get away with in this town and still have a job

think about it...7 regulation wins in 58 games. amazing

and the reason this team gets away with it from the Edm media and kool-aid drinking fans is because the people running this darn team into the ground were their little heros when they were growing up.

I loved MacT and Lowe as players too, but that was many years ago and it in no way excuses what they have done to this sorry excuse of a team.

As long as the Edm fans keep on buying up those tickets then you can be sure nothing will change.

Oil fans are probably the most critical fans in the NHL.

yep....someone will complain that too many fans are jumping from the bandwagon....which isn't what is happening. What is happening is just criticism for poor performance. For some reason some fans believe the team deserves uncritical praise at all times. But this is ugly folks.

How does 7 regulation wins in 58 games NOT get this coach fired on any team regardless of injuries or any other reason?



So this is what hope feels like?

Yeah, it's funny how nobody is making those threads right now, isn't it?

It's hard to disagree that he has the ideal male body.

Oiler fans are the most critical in the NHL? Who is this, Dane Cook? Dave Chapelle? George Carlin? You must either be joking or a leafs fan on the wrong site. No other team in the league, Toronto included, lets it's team have a 12.5% winning percentage (over the last 63 games in regular time) and give the 'Architect' of the team a raise and 4 more years at that level of accomplishment. There are fans in Guatemala that are more critical of their national team's performance than Edmonton fans are of the oil. mexican


5 Cups and counting.
