Flames at Oilers G 75 ’10-’11

With the long season having run its course, the answers have come back from the Hockey Gods. The kids are alright but there’s a helluva long way to go.

I wonder how many times the Oilers will change their head coach during Jordan Eberle’s entry level contract. Sam Gagner has completed his 4th NHL term with his third NHL coach. That’s some juggling.

This Oiler bunch can’t score and they get scored on a lot. They’ve been outscored 34-7 in their last 8 games, all losses. They were outshot 30-12 in a 4-0 loss to St. Louis (also a poor team) on Thursday.

Game 1 of the Rebels-Oil Kings game turned into the RNH show and it may be the same in game 2 tonight. Game time is 7:30 and it’s on Shaw cable 10 again.

We’re running out of things to look forward to in regard to the 10-11 Oilers. Omark is fun to watch and you can see Eberle has a lot of try (and is the one guy who can score during this slump) but beyond that we’re stretching for good news. The kid Petry is emerging and Pääjärvi is a delight. There’s a lot missing from this club and good health next season would be a fine idea.
