Exposed

The Oilers are in big trouble. They are getting out-hit, out-skated, out-hustled, out-coached, out-skilled, out everything. All they appear able to do is skate around the boards, pass to the defencemen, and have them either miss the net or have their slapshot blocked. Everything that was wrong with the Oilers this year has been brought to the surface over the past two games. We are an entirely predictable team. It kills me to say it, but this looks like it will be over in four.

At least this Clippers/Suns series looks like it is gonna be a dandy.

Agreed, they aren't even in the same league as the Sharks. To make matters worse, Toskala is finding the pucks that somehow make their way through the players. They need to beat the crap out of the Sharks, start dumping and chasing more and getting the puck deep. The transition game is killing them!!

Yup. The forecheck has been atrocious. Other than Moreau, the players look lifeless. I think Mac T needs to play the Pisani/Peca/Torres line more, too. Stoll and Horcoff are trying, but Smyth, Hemsky and Samsonov look lost out there.
