Yup, but the thing that really gets me is that they bring back Beauchiman, who for all accounts was crap in Toronto, and he plays like Scott Niedermyer in Anaheim.

Going for the better odds in the draft lottery. A bold move.

Sometimes I wish that Sportsnet suddenly became a quality network.

This is as bad as the Oilers have ever been and that is saying something. Surely Krueger can't survive this. I've never seen a coach so clueless as to what is going on out there.

That would require actual scouting. We are only good at winning draft lotteries.

I know that was puzzling? Maybe he can't handle the pressure of being in a hockey market.

My gosh I see Smyth on the ice every second shift...He has played on every line tonight..

Krueger knows that empty net was the best dman they had last night... so I bet he's going for that strategy again. Look for the Oilers to start their last 3 games with no goalie.

Fun fact: Oilers were a finalist in the Viktor Fasth sweepstakes but lost out to Anaheim.

You know, I was open to Kreuger being hired as the head coach, I thought for sure that if anybody could teach the Oilers to be defensively responsible it would be him.

But this is just amazing. It looks like a WHL team out there.

The Oilers actually tried to sign Fasth, but he didn't consider us. If I can find something via Google about it I'll post it...

Fasth would have stunk here behind that D and with the general losing culture that has poisoned so many others.

Wonder how a normal 82 game season had looked in the standings?

MacT has the ability to make sweeping changes if he wants to. Horcoff, Smyth, sweep out the coaching staff and hire Ruff. If he's serious about bringing in change, there's plenty of potential big changes out there.

Heh, the Oil Kings would probably kick the hell out of the Oilers. They have a lot of 20 year olds on their club. Hell, Nuge just turned 20.

Most likely. The poison that Lowe created.
