I know. But they arent passing the smell test. Like I said, were they losing one goal games, or looking ok doing it, I'd be less concerned.

The last 7 periods have been about as bad as a team can look, and its been against the relative dregs on the NHL (based on last years standings).

There is plenty of time here, but 0-3 and awful with 45 games left is far different than 0-3 and awful with 79 games left.

I feel bad for Oates. I like him, and he may very well be a terrific coach, but the circumstances he is now dealing with are about as unfair for him as they can get.
