Why do I get the feeling that the quotes from the coach were run through Google Translate a few times?

And then Putin took to ice and single handedly scored 15 goals!

The headline deserves a good laugh. However being an Oilers fan I'll just cry and jump into the tub with a toaster instead.

"New York Rangers hockey" would also have been acceptable.

I'm on the east coast so I never see the Oilers play.  I read the box scores every morning and see that they still suck despite having the first overall pick for about a decade. What is it? coaching? Depth? Attitude? A woman between them all?

goals scored by opposing team while protesting and not defending 4

soopey: Was it like when the Flyers refused to move the puck up the ice against Tampa Bay because of their stupid 1-3-1 system?


Or was it like when the Bruins beat Tampa?

Since Pronger got the boot after the 2006 SCF, the Oilers have had no big d-men to protect the plethora of small forwards the management collects like a hoarder collects bottlecaps.

They have a couple bigger guys this year, and a tough new coach, though, so I remain stupidly optimistic.

Also, bite me, subby.

Their goaltenders can't stop pucks.  Their defencemen can't stop opposing forwards. Their forwards aren't interested in stopping anybody.  Their "impatient" GM made no moves of note. And their president is still a smarmy a-hole who thinks he's something special because Gretzky and Messier won him a bunch of Cups 20-30 years ago.

The only guy I don't really blame so far is Eakins.  Mostly because he is in a no-win situation.  He's an NHL rookie coach trying to deal with a team that has never had structure and whose players have rarely been held accountable in the past.  These guys are used to free wheeling without regard for defence, and got rewarded for it with letters.

So it's Pronger's fault?

   Perhaps they should trade either Eberle, RNH, Yakupov or Hall for a defencemen or two...... Probably couldn't trade Yakupov for a bag of pucks right now......

All you need to know about Oilers management is summed up with the Yakupov draft class.  30 of the top 90 skaters that year were defensemen and Edmonton didn't take a single one.

Still waiting/hoping for the second coming of Gretzky.  One of these number one picks is going to be that guy... eventually.

Is it really a protest when you protest when you're getting your asses handed to you already?
