(having said that I realize SJ has spanked us a few times but all the more reason to expect the Oilers players to realize they have to bring it to avoid embarrassment)
For instance the best game this year was likely the Pittsburgh game. Because the Oilers, even stated, were playing to avoid being embarrassed. Actual quote, a mirror on whats wrong with this club and troubling.

I would absolutely hate to attend any game with Columbus, Nashville, Dallas, Calgary, etc where the oil play down to their opponent.
Games I'm attending: Washington last night, Columbus in November, San Jose in March.

Love the Sharks, really looking forward to the game. I agree, other than I think one something like 4-1 loss to the Sharks a while back we're generally pretty competitive.
