They were basically the same teams. You're INSANE if you think Pat Quinn "gets a bad rap", if anything he should be the standard we use to judge failures as coaches.
1. Ryan Stone played 27 games that year

2. they weren't even close to the same team, and suffered a massive series of injuries throughout the year, including the inevitable injury to the only goaltender in the organization that Oilers management would allow the team to have - an injury prone aging Khabibulin, because "cup rings"

The players managed to run Mact out of town the year before, a guy with a job for life if he wanted it due to loyalty from his best bud Lowe, they sure as hell weren't going to put up with a new coach who had no problem telling the media exactly how bad they were.
