It's an 8 team league, it shouldn't be that hard to at least be competitive. But they're not even that. It's just masked by a bunch of late rallies that fall short.

Please explain to me what the Eskimos are currently doing. Because it's not rebuilding. It's just sucking. If you have to rebuild in a league where 75% of the teams make the playoffs you probably deserve to be relegated.
The point I am trying to make is that the Oilers 'just sucked' which is exactly what the Eskimos are doing.

The only difference is that there is a greater potential reward in the NHL.

Aside from that there is no difference in the strategy of the 2 teams. The results are both due to incompetence.

The Oilers are no better than the Eskimos in terms of this so called 'directed' rebuild as you put it.
Both teams should be held to the same standard.
