An impartial third party speaking their mind is like a bull in a china shop to the Edmonton media's emotions.

They're not even sensitive to hate. They're sensitive to reality.

The structure-less two man team.

"I have to turn (my vision) up-ice much faster than I’m used to,” he said. Ekholm added that, sometimes, when it’s a scramble in your own zone, you might try to calm it down if you can. Again, he’s noticed that those are the moments McDavid/Draisaitl are even more dangerous because structure is gone. You have to find them — or put it in an area they can get it — right away.

Yeah that's funny.

You really shouldn't have one or two forwards blowing the zone when "there's a scramble in your own zone"

That's terrible hockey.

How else are you going to lose 7-6 if not for repeatedly blowing the zone.

Wow! So the Oilers now have the 3 best players on the planet? And the best coach?! And the best rookie?! Those guys must be an absolute shoe in to win the presidents trophy! Oh...no? The conference then for sure! Oh, still no? Well they must have absolutely destroyed their division! Hmmm...The NHL must be so rigged that they don't even get any powerplays! Oh, they're 4th for PP opportunities per game?

Despite getting absolutely ****kicked 5-on-5, even by bottom-feeders. Somehow getting a ridiculous number of PPs even though nobody needs to push that limit against them...

Oilers are 13th in GF% 5v5 and 7th in xGF%.

You need a new talking point.

Yeah.

Maybe they should try placating their insecurities by needing validation of a rival fanbase as a talking point?

And what about the other half of the equation? (I know that doesn't come immediately to mind, to an Oilers fan)

Defense doesn’t matter in Edmonton…… Katz has his boyhood dream Oilers team of the 80’s…. What an embarrassment

According to natural stattrick

In 5v5

Oilers are 4th in corsi against/60
9th in fenwick against/60
17th in shots against /60
19th in gaa/60
12th in xgaa/60
8th in scoring chances against/60
4th in high danger scoring chances against /60

Like Calgary, the goaltending has been a drag on the Oilers this season. They'd be 12th in goals against with Skinner's gaa over a whole season and 24th with Campbell's.

Oilers aren't elite defensively like Calgary, but they aren't a tire fire anymore.
