Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
Quote:
Most people will attribute this quote to Albert Einstein but there is no evidence to suggest that he made this statement.

This quote "Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results" appears in the Basic Text of Narcotics Anonymous which was copyrighted in 1982 and later published in 1983. It is found on page 11 of the final "Review Form" which was distributed to the fellowship in November of 1981. It is found on page 23 of the current sixth edition.

Alright, what happens if the fans stop showing up to games because we're tired of bottom feeder hockey? Media will call the fans out and wonder if Edmonton even deserves an NHL club. I would imagine that unless shovels are in the ground with the new arena, Katz may again take his brigade to another US market and threaten fans again if they don't support his product.

Yet, by supporting the club, it's almost like a stamp of approval for sad sack hockey.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Direct quote or cite please.

That's something he actually said.

Ok, so that's the direction of this thread. Not as I had hoped but...

"He brings a calmness on the puck to our power play. Off the ice, he brings passion and fire."
Ralph Krueger

Typical oilers I think. A bit backwards to success.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."

The Oilers are closer to the French than the english. Our defense is the maginot line.

how much more obvious is this thread becoming with each passing day? Tambo is the picture of chicken sh-t. He simple hasn't got the guts to be doing the job he has. He should be an ECHL manager. he has 2 weeks to save his job in my mind.
I thought we got into trouble (this year) when all our Centers got hurt and nothing was done. The Lowe/Tambo circus could not make a deal to get some pressure off RNH. We got no centers with size and skill. We have not had this for as long as Lowe has been in charge. "these guys don't grow on tree's" or "nobody gives these guys away" has long been mentioned on this board (in defence of management) for as many years as Lowe's been in charge.

We set our young guns up for failure with no support. RNH may well be hurt and his development as many others is not great.

A guy like Ben Eager is in the minors when we need a big winger that can skate with fast players in the Top six. Everybody can cry about Eager and how stupid he is but he's our fastest and biggest player (weight). On a small forward group that needs this, why could we not have tried him on the Top 2 lines from time to time (extended period).

Love Brown but why is he replacing Eager ?? we could have used them both.

Eager had been sucking donkey ***s, and it's telling when he makes it through waivers after he's sent down.

Brown is doing everything that we asked Eager to do and then some. Eager just wasn't bringing what he was brought here to do, and was only wasting a roster spot.
