So, I will try to avoid that.

But two things:

One, there are teams with worse players that are playing better than Edmonton.

Two, the best coach I have seen with the Oilers in the last decade was MacT. I wonder, if this gets much worse, whether he will remove Eakins and step in.
Both your points relate to one another. Mac t coached a less talented roster and ended up with a better product. The difference is will versus skill. The day this team carries both traits is the day we become contenders.
