No problem, Oilers fans hate the team plenty enough for all.

I rather doubt the Oilers are too concerned with some of the players. If they find a deal for something they like they might ship off some, but I have a feeling the management will do more selected pruning rather than clearcutting. For example I can easily see Staios being back next year unless they can unload him with someone else, like they did Jason Smith. I am optimistic they are not thinking of turning around the ship in a year and they seem to love the idea of leadership continuity, so I don't see them on fire to just get rid of players that are still pulling plenty of ice time.

I don't see the Oilers being able to move more than 1-2 guys (Pisani and Moreau maybe).
