Because the decade was too awful to have a “All Decade” team
Adam Oates - thanks for the two goals…ohhhh and all the great face off advice
Joffrey Lupul - Local boy makes meh by returning home to play timid uninspired hockey
Brad Isbister - Brad Invisibister, Brad Kilger (oohh foreshadowing the list) NHL power forward size, NHL legs, heart of a rhythmic gymnast . The first of many big men but small girl clones on this list
Mike Peca - Please don’t feed me his playoff performance, if Mike had brought his playoff game to a quarter of the season we wouldn’t have needed Vancouver to lose 19 in a row to back door the playoffs. Disgusting performance on his part.
Dan Cleary - Really Dan?? We get to watch you under, underperform for 200+ games only to see you blosson into a 3rd liner? Thanks for making use of 3 ½ seasons with us to prepare you for the “bigs”
Chad Kilger - Was like a stalking horse to prepare us for the likes of Isbister and Josh Green
Jiri Dopita - Wouldn’t recognize if I ran him over in my SUV, but if I did run him over and then rushed him to the hospital and then found out his identity from a doctor as the doctor was requesting my rare blood that me and Mr Dopita share I would…… probably give him my blood, but I would whisper into his ear at night in his weakened state about how much I hate him.
MAP - Hey we found a replacement for Steve Kelly, thanks scouts!! Should be on the cover of an instructional video for our staff “The Danger of Putting too Much Thought Into the Process”
Jan Rita - Prepared us for the Robbie Schremp era, flashy pick that never looked like and NHL player at any point in his limited time with us
Josh Winchestergreen - I hate these big bodies that play like leafy trees
Robert Nilsson - hate his game, 3000 miles on the tires but the body’s like brand new
Rob Schremp - Devoured more bandwidth than the health care debate in the states, never has so much time been devoted too so little
Alexie Mihknov - chose his Lata, 100K and free apartment over taking a shot at the bigs, thanks Barry,
Jesse Ninnimaaakkkiiii -- Serious aside, would a fan poll do worse than the scouting department in the first round?
Corey Cross - Inspired first season with the Oil saw a half an inch of tread come off the tires, enough to make him look similar to one of those tree creatures from Lord of the Ring, the next season
Scott Ferguson - You kept waiting for the art school film to hit theatres - plot line -“Local Beer Leaguer Fools NHL Team for two seasons”
Alexie Semenov - if you scramble the letter in Francois Leroux you don’t get Alexie Semenov but it would be cool if you did.
Bryan Young - epitomizes the worst half season in Oiler history
Daniel Tjarnqvist - just a heaping pile of meehh
Bert Robertson - Its getting hard to remember some of these early decade 6th dbags
Ty Conklin - Worst off the bench performance in goaltending playoff history, guy gets the best view in the house for the only spectacular run of the decade and it like he was so busy eating Doritos that when he was rushed in he forgot common things like “Why going one on one with Rod Brindamour behind the net can be bad for a goalie” A@@@hole
Tommy Salo - thanks for exposing his weaknesses Belarus and thank you Kevin for your steel headed determination in sticking with Tommy for what seemed like the entire decade
MAB gave me too many heart attacks with the oilers and we all have seen that stefan goal a thousand times--do you remember the d-man that caughed up the puck--MAB
Ulanov had 1 good game and 10 bad
Ulanov was our best defenseman in 2003-04 for the half season that he played. If we'd had him for the entire year, we make the playoffs that year easily (we missed by a point or two). He was also a rock back there in 2000-01, and unfortunately chased the big contract after that season and his career sunk in New York. No business at all being on any sort of worst team of the decade.
