Everyone probably knows this... but when I think about it (and looked it up to verify)... other than the Cinderella run... the Oilers haven't won another single playoff series in the last 14 seasons(15 years because of the lost lockout year).
That's a hell of a long period of ineptness... if it weren't for that 1 run where they won 3 series... this team would be near legendary in its level of ineptness.
Again, I know we all know this as fans... but those that are questioning the "patience" of the fanbase really have to let that sink in... 15 years and only 1 decent run. Hard to be much more patient than that.
The Flames have been past the first round once since 1989. The Islanders haven't won a series since 1993. Before last year the Coyotes hadn't won a series since the 80s.
We have a long way to go before we can talk about that kind of ineptitude.
