You know that beat stick will not make a trade before the deadline.
tambo is probably happy about the oilers playing poorly. he'll figure if the playoffs are out of reach there won't be any pressure for him to improve the team.

they should just fire tambo now instead of later. see if macT can be the interm GM and maybe help save the season.
Right now I don't see them beating a well coached team where everyone busts their butt in the system, so I would count the coyotes as a loss.
Even if the oilers get lucky and win 4 out of the 9 on the road trip, I can't see it doing anything other than keeping them in the thick of the crap pack.
embarassing to be an Oiler fan. I haven't worn a jersey in 4 years, at least.

We never win matinée games. We will lose and then head on the biggest road trip of the season. Could be out of it by mid march.

Is there any possible way that we win this game?

I don't think so.

Someone will get our usual 1 goal, and then we'll call it a day. Not much to look forward to right now.

Oilers rarely beat Phoenix and NEVER win in the afternoon. I dont like their chances in this one.

Tambo will trade Khabby for a third round pick at the deadline and give Whitney away for peanuts and dust off his hands and consider his work done. Repeat this season in 2013-2014 but with one more smurf in the lineup.

As long as the peanuts are salted, that's a nice return for Whitney.

On the other hand... the chart that shows the percentage chance the Oilers pick #1 overall has been stuck at 100% for 4 years now.

T.H.-VV-Petell/Jones if they're both ready.

Smid-J.Schultz

Peckham-N.Schultz.

There you go Ralph.
yep, although it'd be nice to bump Jones up. i think he comes in with a lot of energy.

With the Hall suspension, who is excited to see Smyth or Harski on the 1st line?

So it'll probably be:

Harti-RNH-Eberle
Smyth-Gagner-Hemsky
MPS-Belanger-Yakupov

This team is going to be unwatchable without Taylor Hall. They will get destroyed by Phoenix and Chicago.

I'm thinking that splitting RNH and Eberle is the best thing to do.

Hemsky-Gagner-Eberle
Eager-Nuge-Yakupov
HArti-Belanger-Jones
Smyth-VV-Petrell

Spreads out the skill, and adds grit to the rest of the lineup.

They might. But you never know, maybe they will go out there and try and prove something.

Krueger is now using the Magic 8-Ball system...


Does this team terminally suck and have no hope of a playoff spot this season? ● It is certain

Will we continue to consistently be sub 50% on faceoffs, be outshot regularly, continue to give away the puck in dramatic fashion every game and fail to cash in on the few opportunities we do get?● It is decidedly so

Will we lose vs Phoenix? ● Without a doubt

Will we lose our next game after that? ● Yes – definitely

Will our players continue to constantly **** up and cause turnovers that lead to crushing 3rd period letdowns... constantly snatching defeat from the jaws of victory? ● You may rely on it

Will we pass the puck constantly in geometric patterns blissfully unaware that the opposing goalie is sipping a piña colada on the bench? ● As I see it, yes

Will we lose every ****ing game on this upcoming 9 game trip? ● Most likely

Will this team continue to refuse to take a point shot on the PP because that might lead to possible scoring chances... so as not to endanger the 1 goal per game quota? ● Outlook good

Are we the worst team in the NHL, slowly yet methodically drifting downwards towards our rightful place at the bottom of the heap like a heavy, peanut and corn encrusted turd? ● Yes

Will we be this same level of suck again next year? ● Signs point to yes


Is Tambo ever planning on doing anything to help this team out of this funk by making any type of useful & meaningful personnel changes or at a minimum waking up before the lotto show? ● Don't count on it

Do my assistant coaches have any ****ing clue what they are doing and will they ever contribute anything positive towards improving anything this team does? ● My reply is no

Will Tambo, Lowe, Mac-T, Katz and the other 118 members of this mis-management team ever see the light and try and make this team better? ● My sources say no

Will I ever get another NHL job after this ****-show in Edmonton? ● Outlook not so good

Is there any ****ing hope at all for any Oiler fan to ever see a winning NHL team here again? ● Very doubtful

If that is the case you have to be ****ing kidding me Krueger If Harski plays on the top line he had better produce, he's getting a much better push than Paajarvi this season and IMO Paajarvi has been a much better player. Why not try Paajarvi in the top 6? I guess Harski adds a much needed net front presence for the top line, but again he needs to capitalize. I don't mind our 3rd line too much except for Belanger having no offensive instincts to speak of this season or last.
