I agree and the reason why, the lack of effort and who gives a **** attitude from almost everyone associated with this organization. That includes the paid off members of the media who still blow bubbles up the butt of a team that should be considered one of the worst pro sports teams in North America.

After the last 3 years, I didn't think we could get any lower as a fanbase. But this is the worst stretch of oilers hockey i've ever seen.


I don't even know what to do anymore. I even didnt watch this game tonight and i still feel disappointed.


like, Calgary is ahead of us in the standings.....whats going on? what did we ever do to deserve this?


in 2006, i never felt more proud to be an oilers fan.....now, im completely ashamed to associate myself with this team. I can't even remember the feeling of winning and being the playoffs....this is the worst stretch i've ever had to endure as a oilers fan.

Don't even know when it will end.....but i hope its soon. Just so little passion left in me, but i want see this team win so badly.

This team is awful. I would officially say that the Flames rebuild is ahead of the Oilers. I would take two forwards from this team and put the rest in the AHL.

Tank...get a great prospect...hype up the fans in the offseason...rush the prospect by giving them overwhelming responsibilities...start out strong to begin the year...wheels come off in the last part of the season...prospect has season ending shoulder surgery...rinse and repeat

I'll be honest... This has to be rock-bottom for this franchise. We have an owner who is probably contemplating pulling another quick one on the city of Edmonton when it comes to the arena, we have a VP of Hockey Ops who is so out of touch with the fans and the game that it isn't even funny, we have a GM that is untested, and we have a coach who likes to blow sunshine up everyone's ***** day in and day out.

We do have players who care, but they're being dragged down by vets who are mailing it in for a pay cheque. We have too many holes to fill for a single offseason. Mr. Dithers didn't address any of them.

This franchise is pathetic.

Those who are in charge of running this franchise should be ashamed.

This is rock bottom... until the next game, at least.

True but did you need tonight's loss to confirm that?
I'm surprised that some of you are still upset, i gave up on this season a while ago. I'm numb to the whole thing.
I'm just hoping for a better draft pick and wholesale changes this offseason at this point.

He sure did. Hey let's trade hanger too and watch him thrive somewhere else.


Is it because we're impatient and trade them too soon or is it that players just can't come into their own here?

Seems we're damned either way

I think I've seen worse, but your anger is more than understandable.

I can actually foresee the Oilers crapping into 1st overall again and then somehow taking Curtis Lazar and my face exploding.

I know it's hard to remember that there is an Eastern Conference this season, but the Buffalo Sabres and Rock Bottom say hello.

I liken this franchise to the Cleveland Browns.

A franchise with tradition in a great sports city with great fans that is hopelessly and chronically just dreadful, despite years of high draft picks.

I think it more has to do with Ducks accepting who he is as a player and not making him out to be a top six scorer like we were tryin after his 20 game hot streak with gags and nilss

The Detroit Lions fit that description as well. As a fan since '88 and only having witnessed 1 playoff win and 1 division title in those 25 years, i would know what it's like to cheer for a dreadful organization.
They also have tradition and a large, loyal fanbase in a great sports city.

Before this season I likened them to the Kansas City Royals... but the Royals seem to be turning a corner right now. Both franchises were dynamite in the 80's and had players who were the envy of the rest of the sport... then the bottom fell out... on multiple levels.
