Speaking of Chorney, the Oilers have sent him back down again and recalled Alex Plante

Why wasn't Teubert sent down? He has been worse than Chorney.

Hoping to clear a contract? I thought it was a toss up between the them for play. Teubert is younger so he gets the nod I guess. Chorney looks like the next Syvret.

Sadly, Teubert has looked like the next Jason Strudwick on quite a few occasions since his callup.

Size. Pretty much entirely the reason. Renney didn't like that the Oil got pushed around last night... per some twitter twerp.

Ouch. Renney scratches Eager (who hasn't really lit it up, mind you), but replaces Chorney (who is actually capable of moving the puck and manning the blueline on the PP with Plante? I'd say it's more effective to be able to break out of the zone and play hockey in their end. It seems to encourage players, give them some belief, instead of going for another rather sluggish player who cannot keep up (especially on the road).

Really? I thought Colten looked pretty good...

I don't think Chorney has what it takes to play in this league. Not offensively gifted enough to be a guy that you look to to just be an offensive defenceman, but way to small to play effectively in his own end without taking stupid penalties. He is like Petry minus the good stick and offensive zone presence.

Tuebert in the very least will hit anything that moves.
