Lord be praised for McDavid's rare time away from Lucic.

It’s a shame the post got in the way of that OT penalty shot, but a McPoint is a McPoint

Got an opportunity to go to the game. Wow, 58 minutes of garbage fire with fans resorting to booing and hurling abuse at the Oilers. Then 7 minutes and 1 shot of rockin' and rollin' with the Ol' 97.

Looch looks spectacularly bad in person. Puljujarvi skates massive figure 8's around the ice all game- never in position, has no clue where the play is or is going (and I think he's one of the better Oilers). Klefbom and Sekera are terrifying on the point, just no idea what to do under pressure. Larsson is a cheap dirty old Salming-style defensive bastard (that's a compliment and I love it). Kassian is coasting around centre all the time waiting for breakaway hail Mary passes and is totally out of position. The rest of the team was invisible for the most part.

This team has no flow, no direction, no plan other than give it to Connor and see what happens.

That was a fun 7 minutes though!!! A really really fun McDavid Show.

Sad commentary on the coaching staff your comments are. Players being clueless at least partially means the coaches aren't reaching them or their system is not working or both. Throw Looch down the well! McPoint FTW!

5:50 I thought the Oilers were going to lose so I left the game.

Who knew a game was going to break out in the last 5 minutes. So mad I walked away but hey, that's hockey I guess!



The very definition of insanity is doing the exact same thing expecting different results.

Generally Disappointed.

My buddy asked me with 5 minutes left if we should take off and avoid the crowd. I explained to him the Oilers' plan of mailing it in for 58 minutes and then having McDavid set up or pop in a goal in the last couple of minutes so we could get to overtime and have a chance.

And then it happened!

Never leave a one goal game!!!

Khaira is now my 2nd favorite Oiler for the year.

Not just because of his Clutterbuck beatdown, but in general he plays like he cares.

If we had a whole team of Khaira's we'd be a good as Vegas.

And the Oilers would be way under the cap!

the whole league could learn a thing or two from Vegas, at least the coaches and players could.

they actually allow their players to have fun, go out and be creative, and to not be robots.

I think their success is in some way an indictment on the league, for how conservative and boring and overcoached many teams are.

I haven't really watched Vegas much but have to agree that it has gotten to be such a systems overcoached game. Fun for the likes of McDavid who they trust to be creative but not so much for the players down the pecking order. Not sure how our players view the coaches in Edmonton but it has always struck me that way, worried about making mistakes because the coaches have such a tight grip on the reins and micro manage every move. Khaira is turning into a very valuable player for us. Hard for the other team to handle and fearless.

First game I've watched in weeks thanks to vacation and the flue... hot damn is McDavid good. Watching him day in and day out makes it easy to become acclimated to his brilliance, and seeing him play after not watching hockey for a while reminds me how good this team could be because of him, and how badly everything has been bungled by management.
