      Hey Dennis, hate to nitpick ut I see one error in there. You got the wrong players on the ice for Ottawa’s fourth goal, which came with 8:02 to go, not 9:02. 11-15-19 for Ottawa (again) and 21-83-89 for the Oil. It was right after that icing play where Hemsky appeared to win the race but delayed on touching the puck while he planned yet another of his crafty moves. Tweet! Icing, own zone faceoff, loss of possession, goal.

      Horc had a bad enough night without laying that one on him too. :(

      Thanks, Bruce.

      Not a big deal because anyone using this will always use somewhere else for GF/GA in terms of the bigger picture.

      I was also shocked by the turn of events on that goal because I, too, thought 83 won the race and then when it was blown down, I wondered why he didn’t argue. The other thing was why was that pass so high from 89 in the first place?

      Tonight was really all about Gagner, wasn’t it? He had two goals, he hit a post and he other scoring chances besides. Plus, he took a heedless Moreau-type penalty that lead to a Sens PPG and he also helped that icing we’re speaking about.

    3. March 6, 2009 at

      Dennis: … and he got owned on the faceoff that followed the icing.

      But Hemmer simply wasn’t aware of the impending icing, he tried to let the puck do the work as he mad ehis move on the guy. Whereas Job One was to touch the puck and legalize the play.

      This is far from the first time I’ve been critical of Ales for a lack of awareness: letting the clock run out is another favourite. As a shinny player he’s a natural, but his gamesmanship needs work. A Lot of work.

    4. March 6, 2009 at

      Well, these results certainly do seem to be following a theme now don’t they: the Oilers are outchanced, lead by their best players. Pretty disconcerting.

      I know they got a PP goal and that’s never a bad thing, but that Gagner goal wasn’t traditional PP style. It would be nice to see them score one off of a play set in the zone. It seems like they’re probably still sturggling.

      Finally, it’s not too often that watching Sam Gagner get thrown to the ice and a bloody lip brings nothing but a smile. But tonight, I was reminded about why I wish we could’ve moved Steve Staios and kept Jason Smith. They both look done and what-not, but… I’ve just always liked Jason Smith.

    5. March 6, 2009 at

      Me too Scott.

      Staios is game but Smith is at another level

      I’ve seen a few Sens games lately. A couple of weeks ago they were playing Buffalo and the pest from there – Kaleta (?) took a run at Alfredsson.

      Smith roars in but get this. The kid turns his back to him at the boards so Smith lets up and basically cradles him into the boards. He could have killed him but he basically caught him and protected him.

      So the kid turns around and begins snarling and the gloves go down and Smith just tosses him around like nothing.

      It was awesome.

      It was a weird outcome though. Smith got a triple minor and the kid got nothing.

      Sens killed them all off and won the game.

      As for the Oilers well they certainly do suck.

      You guys know I’m not into kneejerk reactions – all I can say is MacTavish had better be gone come next September.

    6. March 6, 2009 at

      I haven’t compared their numbers but Smith plays in a lesser division and from what I saw of him with Philly last year, I wouldn’t pay him more than Smid money.

      I’m glad he got his payday but I wouldn’t want to pay it. That being said, I still love the guy and I’d love to pick him up as a rental next year if we have the space and it would cost fuck-all. He would sometimes piss me off with his dumb icings and the way he could clear the puck onto the D’s stick on the PK but I still love the guy.

      And, yes, you look at the way we’re losing and you say that as soon as the top line turns around – and we know they should – we’re gonna be fine. But, fuck, they’ve been getting owned for awhile now and taking 27 off that line doesn’t fucking help.

      I can say with all certainty that I don’t enjoy watching these days, though. Last night I was back in full rage mode and all the mediocrity just wore me down.

    7. March 6, 2009 at

      Dennis: I feel your rage. And your pain. Last night I was wondering if Horc was shooting with one arm and Grebs skating on one leg and Hemmer thinking with half a brain and boggling how the big Ottawa unit was just owning their asses. Most nights one might say by all means let the other lines saw off 0-0 and the special teams do the same at 1-1 and let’s take our chances with 10-83. But that’s sure not the formula for success this last not-so-little while.

      I really thought Ottawa got soem insane fucking puck luck on their first two goals, but maybe they deserved it due to pressure. Not having the oplay blown dead before Gretzky… err, I mean Spezza, set up Comrie 6-on-5 really did us in.

      The top line has looked like shit for a while now. That said, we can draw positives out of the play of Samwise, no? It was always going ot be a development year, wasn’t it? Playing Smid, Gilbert, Grebs, Gagner, Cogs, Nilsson, Brule, Poo, 3rd yearn player Dustin Penner, Brodziak and Stortini.

      I mean, c’mon, look at that list.

      Insider: that’s all fine and dandy but sometimes it’s nice to make the playoffs:)

      I can see how this year might end up to be great future lessons for 13 and 89 and then I can see us losing one of them if the cap goes down for 2011.

      Hey Dennis, the playoffs are awesome!

      But being one of those smart marks that were publicly stoned for suggesting the stretch drive last year was propeled largely by unrepeatable luck, I feel sort of redeemed in a bitter sweet way. The first thing I said in the pre-seasion was that the Oil could make large gains in the positive direction this season and still finish no better than they did last year…

      Not that I want to get into the internet bullshit resume game.

      I mean look at the list above of starters on this roster. If it wasn’t for Roloson’s near Hasekian performance at even strength this season (something even a visionary like myself never imagined happening) the Oil would be challenging for the Tavares Cup.

      It all boils down to reasonable expectations.

    11. March 6, 2009 at

      Yeah Dennis, there’s no question that Smith isn’t what he used to be and I want no part of the contract either, but I’ve always really liked him as a player and as team captain. In much the same way that I don’t think we should even try to get Ryan Smyth back with the coin he’s pulling down for the next few years, I’d still have a huge smile if it happens.
