Rock Bottom Again?
can't possibly get any worse. might still get worse.
Finishing off a six game home stand at 1-4-1, the Oilers turned in another listless performance on Tuesday night. This time, the Senators dropped four goal on the Oilers, while Edmonton was able to muster up a lonely tally from Jordan Eberle. Todd McLellan took the team to task after this one, announcing that some changes were likely afoot.
I can think of at least two Oilers who will likely have new mailing addresses come Tuesday. From the sounds of things, there could be a few more come this off season. With the trade deadline just days away (and the team firmly ensconced in last place once again), the chance for some fireworks on Monday is higher than usual.
In the meantime, the Oilers are playing the Kings in Los Angeles. Please recall the Kings, who are a pretty good hockey team. Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"I think we had a choice to make this morning; we could come to the rink and pout and be down on ourselves or we can come and work, and I think for the most part the guys made the right choice and I'm happy for that..."
That's Oilers head coach Todd McLellan on yesterday's practice.
Everyone loves a good bag skate.
The opponents are saying
"He's 18 years old playing in a men's league, and his production, if he'd played every game, his production is with the top handful of guys in the League." Source
Have some of this
Edmonton Oilers recall Jujhar Khairia from Bakersfield. Getting ready to move somebody, no doubt.— Terry Jones (@sunterryjones) February 25, 2016
Dreger: "I don't foresee anything involving Taylor Hall, be it between now and Monday, or in the off-season." Pretty important cog. #Oilers— Chris Nichols (@NicholsOnHockey) February 25, 2016
