I'm surprised he even has season tickets. You'd think he would've burned them after the last loss.

Cool?

Guess I'm not going to burn my tickets or demand that x gets fired, and y gets traded. It's the exact same thing after every loss.

Gagner is garbage, no doubt.

The problem is Tambellini is refuses to take out the trash. I think he likes the smell.

What is everyone complaining about?
Its the situations they are all being played in. How many minutes of 4 on 4 did Horcoff play compared to RNH and Eberle. Horcoff gets every possible gravy minute that is available in a game, there is a big problem with that.

Or the one before that, because I guess enough is enough

Some people might feel differently.

Is that ok with you?

Easy, you trade him. Doesn't matter for what, and how we will replace him, but we trade him anyways.

Gagner and Hemsky are starting to smell like the BFI behind McDonalds on a hot summer night.

Good thing Hemsky has a sinus issue.

Trade him for Calgary's 7th rounder. It's genius!

Is there anything dumber than rating a scouts pedigree when he has only been around four years? The oldest players that he drafted are 21 years old, how many of them are supposed to be impact players in the NHL already?

We finished last in the entire NHL in 2009-2010, and 2010-2011. Again we have shown we are a hapless team for the 3rd year in a row. What do you expect? Frankly, fans should be pissed off. Waiting 5 years down the road for something to maybe happen is not acceptable.

I know that you err on the side of optimism as do i most times but how can you watch that disheartening effort tonight or for that matter the last 15 games or so or for that matter the last 2+ years and not feel utter hopelessness. Where are the bright spots outside of 3 high end youngsters (although i'm not so sure about Hall at times), Jones and perhaps Gilbert and Smid? These are very tough times as an Oiler fan and the board is acting as if that's the case, that shouldn't be surprising to you.

Stu is the only piece of the organization worth anything, and at that he is just an average scout. Try and pick a player of substance with a 2nd or 3rd round pick. It's gonna be a long rebuild if all we get is 1 player per draft, and that is just because it's a 1st rounder.

You are the one who seems to think KLowe's minions are the greatest managers in the league .... that gives you zero credibility. The results speak for themselves.

I would have traded years ago.

While he still had value.

80 cents is better than 60 cents.

60 cents is better than 40 cents.

40 cents is better than 20 cents.

I know this may seem like an crazy idea but I would move him before his value becomes 0 cents.

Tambo's facial expression after every loss:



Because you know, he's clearly got that lottery pick in mind.

People on here don't have the patience for a rebuild. I've said it the first time the team finished in 30 and I was right. Look at the constant Oilers bashing after every loss. Fans on here can't handle a rebuild.

As a poster mentioned above, it's a little weak to say such things when most of the palyers he's drafted aren't even in their mid-20s yet. Given the track record of drafting pre-Stu, I think it's good.

And where on Earth did I say that? Haven't you burned your seasons tickets yet? Does that somehow give you credability?

Yeah, on all the 4 on 4s Belanger followed Horcoff. RNH and Eberle came out to mop up at the tail end of the 4 on 4s, they lead this team in all O categories I wouldn't want to play any 4 on 4 either

He picked Bunz, Marincin, Lander, and Hartikainen didn't he? And those guys are looking pretty good.

And that probably wouldn't have been received well. Giving up on players early in their careers sounds like a pretty stupid thing to do. Yes Sam isn't the greatest but in years past he was a consistent 40 point man.

Bump RNH off the first line and put Gags down the middle. That is what will take his game to the next level...he is the king of secondary scoring.
