OT: Speak only in questions, Oilers Edition

There is a thread like this in the lounge, but i'm adding a twist. You must speak only in questions, and only about the oilers. So let's begin:

How would you rate the oilers this season?

Don't you think it's difficult to rate a team that's been so inconsistent?

Don't you think this team is getting better for the long-term and will be better (as in ready to compete) in the near future?

of coarse i do but do you think that this year's inconsistancies follow that same history the oilers have had for many many years and are they really that much worse than past Oiler teams ?

Isn't the excuse that this team is going to be competetive in a year or two getting old?

Ok so, who thinks the team will be better in a year or two? And who thinks they will remain inconsistant, like they have been for the past few years?

Who ISN'T thinking that as soon as one glaring deficiency is fixed (defence), another glaring deficiency will rise to take its place (goaltending, scoring)?

They will be a better team, but do you think the inconsistancy will remain? Wasn't it you that mentioned all the inconsistancy with the past and present teams?

don't you think that every team has some sort of inconsistancy ? but for the Oilers will it be the inconsistancy of lack of effort or the inconsistancy of not finishing chances or the inconsistancy of going long times between wins (which has been a staple of the Oilers for years) ?

Should I interject with a statement, thereby breaking the sequence and be a party pooper for everyone?

Is that in the spirit of The Game?
