When you know the org is in rebuild and its burn it down time you try not to be one of the casualties. Bet theres a lot of players in Columbus playing scared and looking over shoulders right now.
When a 38yr old Vinny Prospal is leading your team you've got a VERY BAD team. A depressing lineup actually.
I completely agree with their team. It is terrible, but thats what i'm getting at. That team is doing a lot more with a lot less. The Oilers should realistically smoke the blue jackest. Our teams shouldn't even be on the same level, we're what coming up on year 4 of the "rebuild"? they're in year one and it appears that they are going to give us a run for our money.
If they tank and crash, which a definite possibility then they will be doing what was expected. Whereas the Oilers seem to struggling to get out of the basement. I don't think its out of line to expect us to be doing better then Columbus at this point.
