lol, I completely agree, move him and something else for a top-6 forward.

No I'm not hanging my hat on that, it's nothing to write home about, but when one whiny malcontent wants to toss out made up stats to support his whining malcontentedness, I can't stand for that.

I'm serious though. I know he's supposed to be this G.M person for the team, and I have seen his haircut in pictures; I'm just wondering if anyone's checked in on him in the past 2-3 months.

Those quotes could be made by anyone.

The up side for you guys is that you've been on a long road trip and will be going back home to play some games. Jackets have to go on a 5 game road trip starting tonight. Road games are just so tough to win in this league. I'd take OTL in every road game if I could.

That's pretty much it. I can't hang my hat on "effort" when they have one regulation win over the past four weeks.

I was looking at 5 on 5 when I talked about goals allowed.

Carolinas the only worse 5 on 5 team in terms of goals allowed.

It was an exciting game to watch, lots of excitement. It will be interesting to see how they do on this 5 game home stand now.

There is no short term upside. This team is years away at being a top 4 conference threat. And it's been 20 years (or near it) since this team finished top 4 in the West. This is getting rediculous.

lol....it's been 23 years since the Oilers won their division, 17 years since they had home-ice advantage, 4 years out of the playoffs and sitting 8-10-3...4 points out of the playoffs with everyone else having games in hand

excuse me while my patience is wearing thin....

At least you're not the Jackets

I'm pretty sure everyone in the league uses us as the base of their jokes

Yeah, you're right. MacT would've put Reddox in the SO instead of our leading point scorer. That's much more logical...

Heh, I doubt it. Canucks and Flames fans have been having their jollies over the past three, almost three and a half years.

You seem to be the only one who sounds like you are crying in response to a post I made.

If you don't like it, you ignore it.

Not anymore, you made the playoffs last year and you are sitting in 6th place with a decent team. You have a Superstar that you've been able to build around, and you are a tough team to play most nights. Anyone laughing doesn't know very much about hockey imo.
