      There’s no way to say that the forwards EV play wasn’t affected by all the energy expended on the PK but, still, when we were at evens, the Oilers get outchanced 10-20.

      Two chance for every one.

      The Oilers won the EV battle 3-2 – a minor miracle given the aforementioned numbers – and sawed off 1-1 on ST which is just mind-boggling.

      I didn’t have the problem with the officiating that some guys over at LT’s site did but I did have a huge problem with the way the Oilers killed the penalties. What you have with an Oilers PK unit is a shooting/scoring chance gallery – the Oilers held the Wings off the PPG sheet on Tues night, for instance, but the Wings could’ve marked at least two goals with the chances provided. Roli mentioned the club did a good job of clearing rebounds and that’s certainly true but that’s the only positive thing they did all night. As of late, folks are posting about how the team lays back when they have the lead but that’s the exact same posture the team takes on the PK. There’s no down ice pressure and it’s a constant state of battening down hatches.

      Some other things:

      - 44′s quietly putting together a stretch of stupidity. Just before the loss at Phx, he logging a dumb penalty a game but I never saw it mentioned anywhere and last night, he stood by and tried to point out how everyone else was supposed to play while Getzlaf walked out willy-nilly and all of a sudden it was 4-3. I found it funny because MacT had just put together a 18-10-34 line specifically to hard match vs the Getzlaf line and, bam, it’s 4-3. Little by little we see the Montreal Canadians Sheldon Souray.

      - 89-21 doesn’t work and I’m not sure why MacT can’t see it. 21′s got two SO goals, he’s score two goals at EV and now he’s got an ENG. It looks like the guy’s doing a lot of stuff but he doesn’t look that valuable when you actually watch the games.

      Out of curiousity, what’s the season record for “most consecutive chances by one team”?

      Is it, by chance, fifteen?

      LB: I have no idea but that question did make me laugh so well done!:)

      It’s blindingly obvious by now that Roloson is the team’s MVP, but I’m beginning to wonder if, should the Oilers make the playoffs, he should be in the conversation for the Hart. I mean, I can guarantee he won’t be (East Coast Bias, Green, Malkin, Ovechkin, etc.), but for as bad as the team’s been without 71, and for all the softies he sometimes gives up, imagine if it was 35 that went down instead and now we have JDD as our starting goalie for the last 20 games. Looking at the chances vs. the scores, I’d bet good money we’re chilling with our WHA brethren, the Jets and Nordiques, by now.

      I think alot of it might have to do with the defence wearing down having to compensate for the loss of Visnovsky. They’re being ridden hard and making more mistakes as the Vis-less the games pile up. Both Gilbert and Souray are far more prone to brain cramps. This might also explain the recent rash of inexplicable losses to crap teams. I’d bet the mental stress of continually being on the bubble is starting to catch up with the entire team, including MacT.

      I think the complaints about the officiating last night was mostly to do with what Anaheim (and mostly Selanne) was getting away with.

      The Oilers have been having a terrible time with their 1-2-2 over their last few games. Unlike a lot of other teams that use that strategy effectively, the Oilers really haven’t been able to slow teams down through the neutral zone. Plus, whenever you have Staios/Souray or especially Smid/Strudwick they just can’t handle the two-man forecheck when the other team is pressing and then we get hemmed in for a bit.

      89/21 really haven’t clicked too well yet, but they are putting the puck in the net the last couple of games and that has a tendency to mask a lot of issues. The major problem that they have is that there aren’t really a lot of places to put Kotalik.

      Gagner and Hemsky don’t work either. Hemsky doesn’t play catch.

      He’s better off with Horcoff, far better off with a defensive player who has adjusted his game to fit in with Hemsky.

      And, of course, Hemsky also needs someone to go to the net, hard, take one or two defenders, and open space for him.

      Gagner, Kotalik, Hemsky — how could it ever work?

      Scott: Yeah, my problem was EDM getting nailed for every technicality in the book — some of them more than once — while ANA got away with a lot. Esp. Selanne as you say, who played like a fucking asshole the whole game.

      Dennis, you dwell on Souray’s mistakes and he does make a lot of them, he’s a high event player. He also does lots of good things, like going after Corey Perry and making a huge shot block in the dying seconds and do a generally decent job withstanding Suicide Steve’s “breakout” passes. (For some reason opponents don’t seem to run Sheldon the way they do Smid… I wonder how that could be. Ladi should be instructed to watch Souray closely to see why that is. Not too many examples cuz most guys know better, but let’s just say Souray doesn’t tend to leave himself exposed.)

      Don’t know if it’s a “record” (check the first @SJ game) but the funny thing about the 15 straight chances is that they suddenly dried up with more than 8 minutes to go. Oilers were finally starting to make good plays to get out of their end, and while the one-goal lead never was comfortable the Oil were actually pretty solid down the stretch.

      Bruce: I don’t normally tape the games because I almost always watch them live but last night was the exception and I noticed the Oilers did a good job of blocking shots late. The Ducks still had a high pct of O-zone possession but the Oilers were helping out Roli in the late going. Speaking of shot-blocking, if you or someone else still has the game on DVR, watch for 44′s shot block in the dying seconds: the guy almost screws himself into the ice trying to get out of the way of the shot; he’s actually falling sideways to the right when the shot hits him.

      I give 44 a hard time because I’m unconvinced that this is the real Souray. More and more, I see things that were indicitive of the Habs Souray I feared we signed.  I’d certainly miss his goals and toughness if he left but if he showed up next year and was -15 in real plus/minus playing top four min, I wouldn’t be surprised in the least.

      The officiating was pretty queer last night, though. I noticed two glaring Ana infractions that weren’t called and just after 22 escaped from the double-minor, 37 wrapped his arms around a guy and just pulled him down and there was no whistel
      Staples: Yes, 10-83 needs to play together and 27 needs to, ahem, ‘flesh out’ that troika. 89-13 has to be the genesis of another line and perhaps 19 slots in there or him and 24 are the wingers on the third line. There are a lot of candidates for slots 9-12 but we’d still be better off served getting another centre outside of 10 who can kill penalties and win draws.

      Then again, perhaps the Oilers just promote 51 to that role and we go another year gambling on that.
