Talk about improving too quickly is silly... they improve as they improve - think of it in Darwinian terms: they are evolving into the team they are becoming. Picking high again this year likely means losing on purpose... and I cannot support that.

The Oilers might actually be buyers come the deadline (scary thing is Eklund predicted this).
It's OK, Eklund's perfect record of being wrong about everything related to the NHL remains intact.

I still believe we are improving too quickly. Send down Hall, Eberle, Paajarvi, Omark, and start Khabibulin for the rest of the season. This way we will guarantee a strong future.

I created this thread and I stand by it!

We managed to accomplish the stated goal, though the means may have varied. The stretch of injuries cooled off that streak we were on, and since then it's been a real masterpiece. They might have taken this post a little too seriously as we are really dialing up the suck!

There's absolutely no excuse for the disgraceful efforts over the past two games. Effort has nothing to do with being a good team or a bad team.

I am very concerned about this. With the improvement we see in this team, the NHL may have to demote us to the AHL in a few years.
