We lost.. again. 4-1
Demote MacT to toilet duty.
Yadda yadda yadda. Better luck next game, guys. Hopefully Smith plays less than stellar.
I propose we try a couple more coaches before trading any of these entitled losers.
MacTavish is the most patient impatient man I've ever seen.
I still think those first two periods were fantastic.
But yah, Boo, season over/fire and trade everyone.
Oilers didn't deserve to lose tonight. Holtby stole the game. It happens sometimes. Two years ago, right around this time, that was us on the other end of things.
Happy I stopped watching the games. Won't watch again until we make a big trade.
They lost because those gifs were purged from the GDT.
Very few teams make moves between mid-july and the trade deadline.
Seasons are won and lost based on what GMs do in June/July these days.
gordon and jones ok?
Would it be too much to ask for one of these to happen for us?
Glad I missed this one, sounds like the boys weren't playing that hard, surprise surprise. The makeup of the team in regards to the two top lines needs a change in the worst way. Keep changing the coaches all you want, check that get rid of Buchberger and Smith, however it is quite obvious the young guns are either not listening, not good enough or just plain crap. Sitting at the bottom of the Western Conference is not acceptable and the litany of excuses from the fans, the media and the organization itself is just maddening. It is not bad puck luck, just need some more games, too young, or corsi will change it around, the Oilers are a bad hockey team. At the end of the day I also believe at the end of the season after missing the playoffs again they will need a new number one goaltender.
Back to normal. Yak looks like he should be in okc for a while, learning how to play and gaining confidence.
Screw this team!!!
Lets throw all the tables!!!
If you actually watched the first two periods, you'd find that wasn't really the case.
I'll put the tables back:

I don't know, i was actually pleased with the first 2 periods. They were obviously done once the Caps scored the 3rd goal but they deserved a much better fate after 2. If they continue to play like they did in the first 40 minutes, they will string some wins together. I'll choose to focus on the positives tonight.
I am leaning towards this as well, but I get the feeling he would act like a petulant child and the team would have an even bigger mess on its hands. Oh well, what fun to be an Oilers fan. As for the persistent Oilers suck threads on the main board, well deserved. Until the team starts winning...screw that...we should be used to it by now. I seriously doubt MacT can make any major moves however it is clear the team needs a drastic change in order to even consider challenging for a playoff spot.
its common to lose 1st game back after a long roadtrip.
At what point do we demote Yakupov? He's been ****ing atrocious.
That is such a poor excuse and one I expect teams such as the BlackHawks would consider unacceptable. Good teams find ways to win, the losers always have an excuse.
This. The Oilers actually outplayed the Caps, and it was so frustrating to see that after going up 3-0, I turned it off.
USUALLY I turn it off because the Oilers are sucking. That wasn't the case tonight. Outshot the caps in every period, and the Caps got some insanely timely and good goals. It happens.
Agreed. If they got even one on the board before the second ended it's probably a different hockey game. Holtby played very well.
Given that you didn't even watch the game, I'm not sure how you can judge the game.
You're the biggest apoligists in this room . When will you accept the fact from Management down this team has been a comedy of errors , what are you protecting , do you work for the Oilers? they do no wrong in your eyes ever. Denial at its best.
