Ales Hemsky, what the hell is wrong with you? Is there a reason why you will not shoot the puck?? Hemsky had several opportunities in overtime last night against Ottawa. He had the puck on his stick for what seemed like an eternity. Guess what? He didn't shoot the puck, but he didn't pass it either. He circled the net, and with the Senators all on their asses.....nope, no shot or pass. Of course, he ended up losing control of the puck, and the Oilers ended up losing in the shootout. Another game in which they had a chance to win, and blow it.
The Oilers take Ottawa and Buffalo to overtime/shootout, yet can't beat Boston or Toronto. They are now 0-2-2 on the road trip. Bloody hell.
No news on the Smitty front. Is this guy going to resign? Will he be traded before the deadline if he's not? Lowe, you'd better get a pair of balls. Either resign him now or trade his ass. Step up and get it done.
To go from last year's playoff highs to this season's lows.....what a fall it has been.
