Just flush Eberle and Gagner already.
Add Justin "Rover" Schultz as well. Build around the 3 #1's and Nurse.

Yak was good. Too bad the rest of the team played like ****.

RNH and Eberle have been incredibly disappointing.

Pretty sure Gagner had a toe-drag hat trick tonight.

No one can defend this **** anymore, this franchise is rotten to the ******* core! At this point no one should be untouchable, they need to rebuild the rebuild.

Jesus, maybe they should stop showing up to the games like the southern teams so they're forced to ice a winning product.

Ahh, I find it entertaining because he's scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to come up with some reason (ANYTHING) to explain why this team sucks.

He never points the blame at the actual players, coaching or management however (until after they are fired or traded that is).

How much longer until the team changes their tune and starts saying this team is still rebuilding? They've done it before, I believe in 2007-08 Lowe said they were competing for the playoffs and then when the team started out bad, changed to "we're rebuilding."

Switching coaches year after year has been awful for the development of our players.

One day I hope that I see the end of Team Toedrag. Until then, this team is pathetic.

There's still hope... that Katz will fire the whole rotten lot of them at the end of yet another bad season.

I am starting to think about the Oilers as a comparable franchise to the early 1990s Nordiques.

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.
I was thinking about this the other day. There is a bit of a similarity to the present day Oilers and the Thrashers of 5-10 years ago.

We had something like 43 shots. What a misleading stat. Most of those were easy saves Reimer could make all day, and rebounds were promptly swallowed up by him our taken by the leafs. What a pathetic franchise we are.

Every time I think this team has hit rock bottom, they keep digging.

This is why I asked. I can't think of a possible move, but sitting on the roster defies what he said in his opening presser.

Well this may sound like the hopeless optmistic, but we played good. The big thing is when is this team going to get a break. There was the one play we hit the post, then should have clearly been a penalty, no call and TO comes back and scores. We hit how many posts...... Bachman played good, They should start him again.

Any way, I am not saying this team has played well this year, but man, some times we can't catch a break either.
