What is Keith Actons job in the AC duties?

If Eakins is gonna be the business man-like disciplinarian teacher then shouldnt Acton be the motivator and confidence builder? I'd like to see Simmer back if they're not gonna bring in Mess. He is at least positive and nurturing and can stroke an ego or two.

What is he supposed to do? Players on a horrible team are going to be worth less. So you overpay with undervalued players to plug holes on a team made of holes?

The Oilers have put themselves in a hopeless position.

Honestly, I would be fine with this. I don't think it can overstated just how important that top pairing guy can be.

Stauffer's apologies are getting so silly. Injuries are not an excuse.

I am starting to think about the Oilers as a comparable franchise to the early 1990s Nordiques. It may be necessary to deal our Sundin, Nolan and Lindros equivalents (RNH, Hall and Yakupov) in order to BUILD a true TEAM. We are simply lacking too many pieces and talent along doesn't get you very far in this league. I would personally try to identify two guys to keep from our "big 4" if you can call them that, and deal the other two (in my world you keep RNH and Hall).

Drafting and pro scouting have been NOWHERE near the caliber of the Hawks, Kings and other elite franchises. The worst fears are being realized and the Oilers are just like the Thrashers, Panthers and other recent laughingstock franchises.

It's just a crap situation with no end in sight.

Listening to his excuses makes me physically ill. I dread hearing what he'll come up with when we're 20 points out in November.

Yeah, especially since the game was over 1:30 in.

If he thought the game like Lidstrom he'd be a #1. He's still a solid 2/3

I don't mind him sometimes but I don't like when he creates excuses for the club. It has long been a "dog ate my homework" kind of poor excuse making the last couple of years.

This team needs some drastic trades soon, this team is a-w-f-u-l. It is the players, period. We have half a dozen of the same type of player. Small forwards who don't play big.

Look Babe Stauffer is making the "aw they're tired" excuse now. Cmon Babe.
