You know it's bad when we yearn for mediocrity

Oh I don't disagree, I just don't think the result is going to be much different.
Beyond Gordon ... who is supposed to be doing the sheltering?
And the d is going to be a gong show no matter which line is out there.
So does it really matter?

It shows what happens when you build through the draft by drafting wingers.


Defense sucks and no goaltending and without RNH we have nothing.

Let the guy coach its not his fault we have had wasted years under incompetent coaches...
So you believe Eakins crap he is shoveling. Okay we will see were we are at by the end of the year.

On the Wings 1rst goal:


Petry thoughtlessly lobbed the puck down on Mrazek while the rest of the Oilers were trying to get a line change. The Wings easily transitioned up the rink and yes, it was a lucky bounce to get through to Helm, but the key point is just how STUPID & NEEDLESS that play was from Petry.

This is the kind of ******** "Jr hockey mentality" these guys roll with.

The pro play is...for Petry to take that x-ice pass from Eberle & as soon as Petry sees he doesn't have support going up the rink with him...he needs to skate the puck to centre ice and then across the rink towards the benches where he can make a "POSSESION PLAY" for on oncoming teammate to take a pass at the opposing blueline...AND THEN...it is SAFE to either dump the puck in...or...take the puck back towards our end of the rink...either way...we have secured possession.

But nope...we lob it in on their net and blame the bad bounce for the goal.

I really hope someone ends up throwing jerseys or memorabilia on the ice in protest or leave recall before third period.

Year 1 of Rebuild under Renney - 25-45-12
Year 2 of Rebuild under Renney - 32-40-10
Year 3 of Rebuild under Krueger- 19-22-7

The thing with this team is they made quick decisions without any real thought of how to build the team for the future. Sure they wanted to rebuild the team but it should have been from top to bottom. Get an EXPERIENCED GM, get a promising coach with previous experience as a coach or an assistant coach. Used every single season to add KEY pieces for the long term future to help the young guys get into the game and learn how to play the total 200 feet game.

If you look the team IMPROVED with Renney, key thing was they were learning his system and improving, then they fire him and bring in Krueger who in hindsight was doing a pretty good job given it was his first gig at a NHL head coach with a LOCKOUT SEASON. He was a special team genius.

Every year the group of players are learning a new system of a new coach teaching them different things, they are asked to totally change and readapt to new habits every other year. There is no consistency for them. Imagine the past 3 years this season being the fourth, they were learning one system and becoming good at it?

Players deserve the blame because they should be able to adapt but not all of it, its a circus here and everyone outside of the Edmonton brain trust sees that.

I am starting to hope people just do not show up at the arena. That will really affect change.

Yes it matters. I told you who does the sheltering. Hemsky is one of the guys who can hold his own, same with Gordon. Jones isn't great but he can work the boards. You try and shut Datsyuk and Zetterberg down and hope to hell the young guys can find some offense against the other lines.

Its pretty bad. They even "reported" than RNH's shoulder injury "has been bothering him several times already this season".
Is that not a flat out falsehood?

I feel terrible for anyone spending money on this crap. Seriously I don't know how STH aren't fed up. Start an "Oilers Suck" chant or something.

I wonder if we'll ever see something like this:

ďItís embarrassing. Iím embarrassed to be here right now. Itís not even funny. And itís just embarrassing, the way we, you know, the energy we have in the room and the way we approach practices and the way we approach this game. Itís not how youíre going to win any games in this league." - Jean-Sebastien Giguere, April 8 2013

OR

"It's embarrassing to be playing in front of our fans and losing 7-0," Flyers captain Claude Giroux said. "It's not acceptable and we need to figure it out."

Probably not, but I'd like to see some sort of pride for the logo in the front.

I hate to say it but Brian Burke would do wonders for this team, Renney Should still be coach with Ralph controlling the special teams. FML...that is all

I did not think you can have a different backup dress if one gets hurt.

Yeah well, we've heard things before from a few of the guys. Smid comes to mind. Honestly, talk is cheap. We've heard tons about what the team is going to do and they never do any of it, so does it really matter?

I'd rather have Doug Weight, Bill Guerin and Cujo and be a bubble team than this crap right now.

Oilers merchandise hasn't slow down a bit. I was at Costco the other day and people were just buying up all the Oilers hoodies on sale, despite how much we suck.







Unfortunately, I was one of those people.

The last time I saw pride for the logo was this


These days they just go through the motions for their paychecks
