Ferraro speaks stone cold truth about oilers on radio

"if Fla or Cbj were being run as poorly as the Oilers were we'd all be calling them a joke franchise"

"there is a strong tie and love affair with the old cup teams in edmonton"

"if it took me this long to rebuild my house i would have fired the contractor long ago"

"in edmonton management everybody thinks the same, you need a contrarian to offer a different perspective"

We should make a grand universal media bashing the Oilers thread.

Pretty much what this board has been saying as well.

Like us he's wondering why there hasn't been any repercussions for the old boy's club in the front office (or the bench) despite one if not the worst stretches in NHL history.

This is the main thing, and has been so obvious for so long. This is what is so frustrating.

Florida aren't being run as poorly?

Everything else he said is spot on.

"...and we've gotta stop that Hitler guy."

Old news is old. I'm sincerely trying to salvage some optimism out of the remainder of the season. Despite the poorly run franchise, we've got several players who are trending towards career years. You don't hear a single breath from the Toronto media regarding that.

While I'm not personally going to chastise Ferraro over his comments, do we honestly need to hear the same **** over and over? It's truly sad that everyone just eats it up too.

They've fired the people that have offered a contrarian opinion.

Everyone can see it except for the one guy at the top making all the decisions.

Ya, but it hasn't taken longer to rebuild the oilers then it took the Hawks, or the pens. They were terrible for a long time. Rebuilds are hard and take forever. Funny thing is I was saying this way back when every one was calling for a rebuild.

Patients.

You do realize that the national media is literally years behind most stories. Also things only start to get taken seriously when a wide variety of media actually have the balls to speak out about it. Some of us have known this franchise was a clown show for years. Any time any media person actually clues into this fact it is a good thing not a bad thing.

Who do you replace Klowe, MacT with?

Someone with no experience? Someone from HFBoards?.

That's the only thing I agreed with Ray F. Who do you replace them with?

The Job is yours until I find someone better. I tell you if I was the owner of anything, I am going to trust my closest friends.
