I just think its scary at how much change is needed. We have so many useless players on this team.

Today's the day I have up hope on the season. They need to go 16-7-1 in order to have a mere 55% chance of making the playoffs... it ain't happening, no matter how many points they're technically out of a playoff spot. More to the point, the players gave up hope, you can tell by the way they play.

Fire Tambellini. Time's up.

He will get let go at the end of the season. He has to. Problem is Craig MacTavish will be his replacement.

This. First season where I don't even try to make time to watch games if I have other stuff to do.

If the team isn't good enough to win on most nights that's one thing... if they get out-skilled that's another but looking disinterested, passionless and gutless EVERY. Single. Night is another thing entirely.

I watched tonight's game with my dad and he's been traditionally positive about this re-build but even he's lost hope. He's getting old and he's starting to doubt if he's ever going to see another Oilers playoff game.

Katz doesn't watch Oilers games, other than for photo ops.


There's no way he's an actual fan of this team.

Well, it is starting to show that the system is not working at all. Players looked tired/uninterested today. I think we will be seeing another coach shortly.

If Eberle of all players is choking on gimme's, its a sign that the team has a serious confidence issue. At least they aren't choking on 10 foot passes like they have in the past.

This organization is depressing. Seven years ago we were in the Stanely Cup Finals. It feels like it's been fifteen.

Just blow it up, fire management and start re-tooling. We need it. This team is so uninspired right now, they need a spark and so do the fans. It's getting ridiculous at this point. We have not improved one bit.
Hate to break it to you, but judging by how Katz handled arena negotiations, this man is all about the money. Wins don't matter to him. So long as fans are packing the arena to watch sad sack hockey, he will continue to employ slugs to run the team.

Even if a miracle happens and they fire Tambellini, you know the next hire will come from within. It's the "Oiler Way" which they have so closely guarded for so long (I don't know why, the success of "Oiler Hockey" has been... less than stellar since 1990.)

It's what we deserve, people. Get used to it, it will matter less.

What are you all whining about? The Oilers are only in the first stages of the rebuild! Just 7 more lottery picks to go and we have our Dynasty 2.0!!!

It just baffles me why Krueger refuses to use Yak on 4-3 powerplays.

Imagine what MacT could do with this team. Seriously.

He used the dump and chase, and utilized his reformed trap. I remember thinking the last 20 games of our cup run season was boring, but then this happened.


For a coach that supposedly knows defensive systems, Kreuger is showing to know less than a snail in salt.

Alright. I've been super optimistic to this point, heck, even chastizing the negativity on this board.

That's it.

The whole team can go **** themselves.

That was a turd wrapped in a silk stocking wrapped in a layerous onerous piece of Tambellini.

It's like we enjoy being at the bottom of the league.

This team goes through 4 coaches, one of them a HHOF coach and literally would have been better off hiring Pee-Wee Herman.
At least he's inspiring.

As an optimist, I'm angry for being wrong about having my faith in this team and I'm angry about the level of effort on this team.

Not hating on him, he's my 2nd favourite player. Just saying those chances in OT have to go in the net. Ya, I'm not saying its his fault we played so bad, as we definitely didn't deserve to go that far in the game. I worded it weird and edited after I posted it.

People can call us bandwagoners but I can't get up for a game now unless changes are made. Ill keep an app own on the phone or flip channels while the game is on. It's just horrendous how low this team has gotten. Just a joke.

Counting the years of suckage from when the "rebuild" supposedly "started" is just giving Tamby a pass. Its buying into the marketing the Oilers want you to swallow. This team has flat out sucked for five years at least now.

Why should they get a pass for the first three years of their ineptitude?
