    No shame in losing to Nashville. Excellent defensive team.

    Big day for Bouchard.
    Not only was it his 19th B-day he was one of the better players in this game.

    What's the NHL record for most consecutive losses against one team? FFS.

    That sparkling depth throughout the lineup shines through again.

    Tim Horton's doesn't have this many doughnuts.

    Yep, really liked him on the 1st PP over Klef, dunno why they switched them. I guess, leave it to Todd.
    Not looking forward to the next 3 games, Pens, Caps and then Preds again! Terrible schedule.

    No McDavid Oilers 2 goals in 6 games. Thanks for the offensive juggernaut Pete.

    Nashville is a fantastic team and the Oilers played a very even game with them for 59 minutes. Nature of the beast, I'm not upset with this.

    Lets be honest. This was a superior team that beat us by forcing us to play their game.


    Effort was there.

    We lost to a better team tonight.

    Like we've done pretty much for the last 28 years.

    I would like one day not to be able to say that.

    Solid effort by the Oil. Lost to a superior team. That's about all you can say.

    Get out of October .500 and oil are in great shape.

    Very true. You have to put it into perspective. They are a very good defensive team, they are very well coached and they are a much stronger organization than the Oilers are. You could probably put 3 Mac-D clones on the ice tonight and still end up losing.

    This team is such a mess that if you were to replace the announcers with the theme song to Benny Hill, it wouldn't seem out of place.

    I don't know, but I now know what it felt like to be a Flames fan watching the Flames play in Arrowhead.

    The margin for error (for Edm) in a game like this was always going to by tiny. Still, they could have got at least a point out of this one if not for the bone-headed combination of McLellan and Puljujarvi. Todd put out Puljujarvi and Khaira (and Bouchard, a rookie) for the power-play with 5 minutes left in the second in a scoreless game. Puljujarvi makes a bone-headed blue-line whiff shot that misses by a mile, and Nashville scores right after. Puljujarvi can't hit the net or make an intelligent hockey-play to save his life, and McLellan chooses late in the second period, in a tie game against maybe the best team in hockey, to "teach the guys a lesson". WTF?

    If not for that epic-stupid coaching decision, this may have gone to overtime. One thing we know about the Oilers is that if they give up the first goal against at home, they're usually done.

    Through 6 games.....

    1 total even strength goal from lines 2-4
    1 total goal from the entire blueline and that was a 3 on 3 goal
    Zero goals from the 2nd line
    Bottom 6 production outside of the Yamamoto goal which includes Rieder, Cagguila, Khaira, Strome, Kassian, Brodziak, Chiasson - ZERO points.
    Talbot had a .902 save pct. before tonight.

    Was hilarious when he had a great PP shift. Todd yanks him off the ice right before the faceoff and Klefbom goes out to have another useless PP shift.

    Offence just anemic without McDavid.

    2.16 goals per game with Connor McDavid on your team is horrendous.

    Puljujarvi is in no way, shape, or form the answer to any of our winger problems.

    Pretty sure the Flames have lost more to the Ducks. But this is pretty embarrassing and has to be up there.

    Was at the game with my pops for his birthday (sorry pops), but kind of expected this result.

    This offence scares me big time. I said it would be bad outside of McDavid, but even I didn't see it looking this bad. Only 2 goals in 6 games without McDavid on the ice is almost unbelievable.

    We didn't just lose, we got shut out and honestly Saros had a pretty easy time of it. The Oilers have no answer for this team.

    I'll replying here as the GDT is closed.

    I have my reasons to believe Todd is not the right coach for Jesse, but I'm not going to write more about that as I am tired of people thinking I'm blidly defending Jesse and in any case blaming the coach for some things doesn't mean the player isn't responsible for his own performances. As for Drai he's obviously far from his best so that with the minimal PP usage lessens the meaning of the top6, but in any case it doesn't mean Pulju shouldn't obviously do better himself.

    I long for the day when this isn’t the theme of PGTs against really good teams.
