Yeah, the early to mid 90s when they were horrible and were on the cusp of moving the franchise, i would say that was rock bottom

If you guys thought "Cogliano-Gagner-Nilsson" was a good kid line, wait until we get to see "Svensson-Hall-Eberle"

I'm pretty conflicted about this. We've seen mediocrity in the past several seasons, but never enough to drop into the top 5 drafting order. Now that it's a real possibility, well...no one likes to see their team tank this badly.

In the end, though, I'm one of those who fall on the 'no pain, no gain' side. We need that game breaker, no doubt about it, and if it means watching and enduring our beloved Oilers hitting bottom, well so be it.

The sad thing is I see Tambellini trading Nash and Plante for veterans before I see him trading Moreau and Staios for picks at the deadline.

Hall or Seguin is never going to happen.

Short-term pain = long-term gain.

Let's hope the Oilers stay where they are.

Exactly. After the Olympics, teams like the Blues, Panthers, and Ducks will dump vets and tank, and the Oilers will pick up some half-decent veterans and finish 10th.

Thus, the circle of mediocrity continues.

I find these days if you view Oilers games as slapstick comedy routines they, and dinner, go down easier.

A little less frustration as well.

"Cogliano, oh you kidder, Gilbert that was a brilliant own goal, Souray, stop it you're killing me.."

Well not that funny I guess but trying to find something in it..

If the team is going to suck at least get a good draft pick out of it. I hope not to see any desperation trades in a response to the Oilers position in the standings. There will be opportunity to make changes this summer, but right now isn't the time to try and salvage the season.

It sucks for now but if were a bottom 3 team, we can potentially get Hall or Seguin.

The whole point is that we're in a position where we can wait to trade.

We don't need to make a deal now. We're not going to make the playoffs. Surely no one wants to see Tambo do a deal to clear salary just for the h e l l of it. That just doesn't make sense.

I think it's still too early to get any considerable value for some of the vets.

When you think about it, the deadline has become considerably more important because, at that point in the season teams close to the cap have enough room to swallow 1/4 of a season + playoffs of wages for a player that, at the december portion of the season, they could not.

So, I can see why the Oilers are willing to wait...

That doesn't mean it's not frustrating to see them play terribly.

Even predicted the Hemsky injury based on his high risk style of play.

Out of curiousity, when was the Leafs v Oil bet made?

Is Malakov still playing? Who would fit into this category?
Thankfully, Staples has done the legwork for you already in answering this question. Just this morning in fact.

I am about as "glass is half full" as you can get. But given the injury to Hemsky and the others who are out I don't see a playoff run in the picture. So for the first time ever I am on the bandwagon for a bottom three finish.

From the beginning of this year I was ok with managment using this season to evaluate what they have. I think they will get a pretty clear picture in that regard. As such the time has come for a new direction. I suspect that short of this the feelings that poisoned the last years of the Pocklington era could well start to return.

I don't know about you guys, but I've recently become a huge Carolina fan.

I can't bring myself to hope Toronto turns it around though. If Boston gets the first overall instead of us, I'd probably be just as happy.
