Roses are red
Violets are blue
They got 6
And we go our ass kicked.

Okay, so which lesson number was this one? It gets confusing, there are so many of them.

This team is a joke.

Looks like my prediction of the 1:4 loss wasn't that far off.
We don't seem to show up against garbage teams. This is our record against them:
== Losses ==
NYI 1:4
CBJ 2:4
CGY 0:3/3:5/1:2/2:6
ANA 0:5
CAR 3:5
and others

When we play top teams our motivation is way better. This is what we have on our record this season:
== Wins ==
CHI 9:2/4:3
VAN 2:1 (there are also losses though)
NYR 2:0

I suspect coaching may have something to do with no-shows.

Is the season over yet? Would be nice to enjoy a season of Oilers hockey for once.

Poor Hall. Look how upset he is after the empty netter.

Worst part of being a stud in junior is you get stuck with a ****** organization to begin your pro career.

does it really make Oiler fans feel better to refer to the Flames as garbage and bottom feeders? Flames have a decent chance at the post season. not a great one, but a fair one. how are they even listed with the jackets and islanders? lol jeezuz.

Please...you show 3 wins against some of the better teams and this is meaningful how?

Does small sample size have any meaning for you?

Take off the rose colored glasses...this team is garbage no matter how you slice it.

I'm not an advocate of stripping the captaincy but it deserves to be on #4's sweater.

I love how they are making a big deal out of the Hall empty netter.

Stupid mountain out of molehill.

Did they pull the goalie there at the end just to practice it?

That's normally a fact of life for top picks. What isn't normal is finishing last and doing it in emphatic fashion three years in a row.

Taylor Hall....."Why did you pull the ****ing goalie"?
I was actually thinking the same thing.

Anybody who says that coaching isn't the main problem needs to rethink their position ASAP.
