If they fire MacT, who will replace him? Iron Mike? Hopefully not. I cant see that being an improvement.

I think their special teams are bringing down the rest of their game. Wasnt coach Simpson supposed to bring his 50 goal scoring prowess and teach the team how to run the PP? They need someone to fix the special teams, and obviously (embarrasingly obviously) it's not working. This team is too gifted offensively to have such an abyssmal powerplay.

I think Simpson should take the brunt of the blame, if anyone. The team was doing fine 5 on 5 a couple weeks ago, but now their whole game is being brought down to the level of the powerplay. Now, a penalty to either team will kill the Oilers momentum.

On a lighter note - here's a post from exactly 2 weeks ago.
