If not for Dubnyk this game would have been around double-digit territory.

If the Oilers aren't competing for a playoff spot next year it's safe to declare this "rebuild" a big fat embarrassing failure.

One thing is for certain, none of us had better be fooled by a hot October start next year and I'd better not see any threads on the main board crowing about how the Oilers have turned a corner if they do have a good start.

For the the first time in my life, I'm actually not looking forward to next season. This annual failure is too much.

The refs aren't even worth my posting space so that's it for that.

It's been great to see Dubie shut some people up. I really hope that he gets a shot at the #1 gig next year because he clearly plays better when he gets the bulk of the workload. It would be huge if we can scratch off goalie on our list of needs.

Also, i can't wait to see a new coach here next season whether it's Nelson or somebody else. You're a nice guy Tom but don't let the door hit you....well you know where.

Brutal way to end the season. Things I'd like to see for next season: Petry and RNH with a little more weight, Hall completely recovered from shoulder surgery, Whitney with a solid off-season training, another top 4 D, a big physical forward, and the same Dubnyk that we've seen lately.

Hemsky, Horcoff, Belanger, and to a degree Whitney all need to go.

None of them will be gone though.

I'm sure it'll be much different with God as coach.
I wonder how many years of rebuild are required before KLowe/Tambo are gone?
I wonder how many coaches need to be fired before KLowe/Tambo are gone?
I wonder how many players must demand trades before KLowe/Tambo are gone?

Good god I am glad that season is over. One of the most painful ever. I don't know how much more I can take of this sacrificing entire years for a single player. The first two were almost bearable and necessary but this is starting to get annoying.

I wonder if we can sign the Canadian dive team after the olympics this year and put them on the 3rd line. Apparently to win in today's NHL you only have to be effective at diving, I mean look no further then your back to back Presidents Trophy winner for proof of that! This game and season was a joke from the officiating through to the management. If Tambo isn't let go I don't know if I can bare to watch next season.

I miss Hall. The team doesn't seem to have any fire without him and RNH wasn't the same after returning from injury. This team needs to start winning soon or that toxic environment is going to be back.

Another wasted evening.

2.5 hours per game, conservative guess at 60 games per season watched, for three years.

525 hours of my life. Twenty one and a half days that I'll never get back.

They don't have to be. It all depends on what they do this summer. I would be extremely aggressive, but I don't see that in Tambo.

Hey maybe this will cheer everybody up. I know it made me feel better

The Oilers' last 2 wins against the Flames was enough to keep them out of the Playoffs.

Frustration beyond belief.
This org is has sewered lower then the Macioccia Eskimos.

Like them or not Vancouver is a quality NHL org...Edmonton is the opposite. The truth stinks but its impossible to deny.

Of course according to the majority on these boards a coach can absolutely spin gold from garbage.

So once again we rejoice in being in the lottery and the glorious new coach that will lead the team to the promise land.

Good grief.

No - really? I'm surprised Hughson didn't mention it as its probably the most important thing for a team to win. In fact the true measure of a team's dominance HAS to be this vs. the silly Stanley Cup thingy.

Our veteran players on forward are a black hole of suck.

Our coach couldn't coax maggots into eating rotting meat.

Certain portions of our Defense look like they need to be taken out back and shot to put them out of their misery.

In short this season has been a donkey punch to the crotch.

Nothing to say about Khabby, his win/loss stats say it all.

This team needs to carry copper and blue purses on the ice to hit the opposition with, because they sure don't throw the body.

The young guys have been a treat to watch, too bad the rest of the team decided to let them do all the work.

Watching LA/SJ has had me realize that Edmonton is at least 2/3 years away to being an 8th seed.

Notice how their passes actually connect?
