I know there are flaws, and our goaltender's bad habits are making him look awful and some of our players are indifferent and some are trying to do too much and some are doing everything right except the puck isn't going in, it looks more to me like this team is not in sync rahter then being a crap team, I think roles are being determined and some of these guys haven't figured them out yet, even MacT hasnít, he said it himself at the start of the year, he wasn't sure of what he had, but patience, if this inept play continues over the next two or three weeks, then I will be the first to recognize this team sucks, but I really don't think so, I think they will start clicking sooner rather then later, but I agree the Comrie situation needs to be resolve PRONTO!, it's hard being an Oiler fan, but for the life of me, I wouldn't cheer for anyone else.
I 'hear' the voice of reason, amidst all the 'off with his head' insanity on this, and other, forums.

I've been an Oilers fan for 30+ years and altho it has been difficult at times, this team is in my heart. Our young team, with many 'new' faces, has more character and talent than I have seen in many years. However, it's going to take time, practice, and a lot more game play, to get them all on the same page. Once they get to the point where they can be counted on positionally, then we'll see them excel on a more regular basis.

Many have been suggesting patience, but it appears to be falling on the deaf ears of those who demand 'instant gratification'. Hang in there, cram. Anything worth having, is worth waiting for. For whatever it's worth, I 'hear' you.
