For sure. The Oilers certainly may avoid a 16 year stretch. They're only working on 5 right now. I guess we can start worrying when they approach year 14 or 15 without a sniff.
I thought you were arguing whether Tambellini in particular had the chops to bring the Oilers out of the perpetual tailspin. I guess I misread your intent.
