The team has been a mess for a while now. And the talk of how many first round picks they have and all the excitement of the next future superstar youngster every draft has gotten old.

And the predictions by some fans that they're going to become like high-scoring teams of the past like the 90s Penguins are a joke as well (I won't even discuss the asinine talk of growing into a dynasty). Even if you take out the two championship teams in 91 and 92, the mid-late 90s Penguins at least made the playoffs and won some rounds. These recent Oilers squads don't even do that. No defense, no goaltending, no grit, no veteran presence, no playoffs.

If you walked a successful GM like Lamoriello or Holland into that front office, his head would probably explode after about five minutes of watching Lowe & Company run their hockey team.
