    Glad we got a point.

    Thank god we only see McDavid twice a year.

    Backes is a dead body on skates.

    McAvoy was dust.

    On to Vancouver.

    What is with the NPCs that are Oilers "fans"?

    Sitting around stiff as a board with those stupid towels around their necks, dead silent all night, except when there is a goal or a play they think is a penalty?

    It is bad enough to only have talent because you have sucked long enough to acrue pitty draft picks, but I thought this was a major hockey market? Sure, the stands are full, but these people are robots with their volume turned to 1.

    Yuck.

    1 point is better than no points. I thought the Bs D did a good of containing McDavid in regulation. He really didn't have more than 1 or 2 good looks. Also, really like Krejci's effort the past several games. He was really good tonight, and not too shabby the couple games before that. When he plays engaged and hustles it's a big boost to the team. Having Heinen out there helped the second line. Whether he is scoring or not, he is still better than the other players that have been tried on the second line.

    How quickly we forget that the trio out there won games in OT last season. I see no issue starting with those three, especially with McDavid on the ice.

    Pastrnak is better in open ice then any of them in my mind.And a sniper.They lose regulation not for him.

    Cancel the parade!

    **** wrong forum.

    Got a point. All the same in the standings no matter how they look getting it.

    Really wish they had a clue in 3 on 3 but aside from 2 or 3 players they’re not built for it at all.

    Congrats to all the Sox fans out there. Someday 2134 years from now the Mets will be good again. Until then I will cheer for your club

    Terrible terrible pass attempt by Marchand. Bergeron had the jump but i don’t even like the idea to go for that because if the pass is plucked from the air you’re hosed

    Mcavoy had a lazy game

    I’m annoyed don’t mind me

    Just a bad pass by Marchand and he should have checked McD not charge him. This 3 on 3 is bush league anyways. Never liked it from day one.

    Seemed to me Marchand hesitated a bit to release it because there was some player(s) in the way. Anyway, an OT loss vs a non conference foe isn't too bad.

    Oh boy David Backes is really entering Beleskey/Hayes territory now :cry:. Could he be any more ineffective? Heinen with a nice bounce back game, looked more energetic and purposeful out there. Halak was sturdy. The Defense all in all did a good job, especially being short a man.

    Meh. Point is fine. Marchand has to get that up ice faster or just eat it.

    And then not...charge at McDavid when he's coming back into the offensive zone???

    Love Marchand, but he went in full braindead mode for about five seconds there.

    Yep turnover into a 3-1 will end up the net unless the other team makes a mistake or a great save.

    The OT lineup was fine. Marchy is a freaking master at getting big goals and being a big time performer in OT. You want Bergy out there since possession is such a major factor in OT, and he is good at the dot. Not to mention Bergy/Marchy are just plain sick as a duo. Sucks that Charlie is not into the groove yet, but he's the only D I would want on the ice in OT vs McDavid. Everyone else on D would look like a pylon 3 on 3 vs McDavid. If they could have gotten through McDavid's shift then Krejci and Pasta could have made something happen perhaps. Just so tough to face the league's fastest player in OT. No perfect way to deal with it.

    Oilers fans have been through over a decade of **** play and disappointment, it takes it toll on fans. Even now with McDavid we are still recovering from so much losing over the past decade. That being said we still SOLD OUT every single game during the worst era in NHL history, we are a tip hockey market without a doubt. A lot of the fans now are the same season ticket holders during the time too, lets just say watching that team took away a lot of blind and unconditional support.
    When our team shows they are competitive and can win games they slowly gain fans trust and we go wild, happened once since like 2008 (16-17)

    I mean...this is was OBVIOUSLY what was going to start being said as soon as we hit a rough patch, but I don't see how Krug is the thing we're missing right now. And, I'm a full on Krug supporter.

    We need offense and possession from the bottom 9 forward positions. I haven't even considered defensive mobility being a problem with Moore, McAvoy, Grizz, etc.

    It's just a really easy argument to me, but it doesn't really align with the holes that I see need to be filled.

    McAvoy has been brutal.
    Donato is just plain lost. Looks like a colleague boy out there.
    Grzelcyk running PP is just too much.
