Oilers Rebuild

With how this Season has gone down the drain and how there are so many holes on this team,is it wrong for me to believe that the Oilers need to rebuild the rebuild?

After 3 First overall picks:
Defense is still Bad
Center Depth is Bad
Lack of Size and Grit in Top 6
Bottom 6 is all over the place



?


Many Fans are going to blast me because they believe that this team needs to start winning now,but really, how is that even possible when this team is missing so many valuable pieces for success?

I think we can universally agree that the Tambellini rebuild was a complete, abject failure. Still indeterminate as to whether MacT can pull this thing out of the fire.

I hope you're right because I'm getting more worried that the Oilers are never going to be where the Avs are this season.


Mactavish contract offer to Clarkson wasn't a good sign at all.

Couldn't find one of the dozen other threads on the Oiler's struggles to post this?

Should be closed...

This. Plus they already rebuilt the rebuild; the first one that fans were sold started with Gagner/Cogliano/Nilsson.

I could see it from a mile away that Gagner/Cogliano/Nilsson were never going to make this team successful.


That's humiliating on who ever thought that was going to work.

If management really did believe that Nilsson/Cogliano/Gagner were going to turn this team around then that's very worrisome.


They don't know what the hell they are doing then.

Edmonton did what Calgary did for a few years.

They struggled early on
They had a post-Christmas surge
They bought at the deadline
They came up just short of the playoffs
They believed they were good enough to make the playoffs
They bought at the draft/free agency

Repeat.

And after 2 years it then becomes 5 years and then 7 years and you're wondering why is it we can't seem to have a successful team.

Oh boy do I wish it was the 1980's again.

You know the fanbase would've rioted if we blew it up after 08 or 09.

I'm sure many around here wouldn't have dreamed two years after '08 we'd finish last overall.

Rebuild is so close to being over. Just need a few more 1st overalls, a couple top pairing dmen, some third line wingers and a 4th line center, as well as an entire coaching staff.

We're so close!

Funny stuff because it is so sad this team is so far away from being a contender.

I wish those Fans thought more scrupulously on what the future held for the franchise.The management giving such high praise to Nilsson/Cogliano/Gagner and the Fans accepting it pushed this team back from success for years now.

cogs scored 20 from the ducks third line playing rw--20 goals from our third line would be good

Something that has also always driven me up the wall is the constant put a second line player onto the first line and put a at best 2nd pairing defenseman onto the first pairing and then try to convince the Fans on how this team is going to be so successful.



The management has done it again this season with their supposedly stunned reations on why it is that this team wasn't good this season.


Look at this team on Paper and you can easily see that this team wasn't going to be successful this season.

How could you be shocked on this teams misfortunes this season when it was as indisputable that this team was going to be in the bottom of the standings.

Oh please, hindsight and all that.

It's nauseating to think we got that close to the playoffs with those three as our top line and the kids we have now can't even get us close.

and EVERY coach bumps players up the lineup. http://www2.dailyfaceoff.com/teams/l...ago-blackhawks Do you think Handzus is a 2C?

And if he was here, no way would he score 20 goals;as it shows that Anaheim has a much better team.

Teams don't lead towards 2nd and 3rd line players to lead their team to success.

Unless you're the Oilers.
