I want an EE team that is consistently great.

Certainly won't happen under this regime.

For the record, I think we win this week.

I also think we get destroyed the week after @ CGY.
People are specifically talking about cheering for the opposition in a BOA game with playoff implications. If that ever happened under any circumstance with the Oilers/Flames it would be considered trolling and called out.

Even though the "fail" threads are regularly called out theres a perception that its still for the team benefit if you get a high, or #1 draft pick in the world.

To try to compare this with cheering for a team to be lousy so that they get the #1 Canadian football player in the country is asinine. That would be like an NFL team tanking to get exclusive rights to the #1 football player in Michigan.
