All Decade "Bad" Team

Because the decade was too awful to have a “All Decade” team

Forwards


First Line

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

Second Line

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

3rd line

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

4th line

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

Bench

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?


Defence -

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


Goalie

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

Daniel Tjarnqvist actually played ok for the short while he was here IMO. Maybe that's just me though.

Tommy Salo definitely doesn't deserve to be on that list. The guy was a workhorse. If I remember correctly he started over 65 games for at least 5 seasons and had like 3 straight 30 win seasons.

If you need a backup for Conklin go with Joaquin Gage or Dominic Russell...heck even Mike Morrison.



Also....

Please get Peca off that list too and replace him with someone like Todd Harvey or Toby Petersen

Yeah Fallon and Samsanov are good arguments

But Ulanov and MAB??? At least those two brought their guts to work most nights, hard to bang on them for that.

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.

Yeah, let's dump on Oates. Good one.

I guess he doesn't have $20MM in Lucrative Advertising Revenue to flaunt around to earn a free pass.

I submit: Erik Cole.

Oilers management chased him for a few years, mesmerized with his speed & reach off the wing.

They finally got him, expecting he could fill a lane on the top line but besides being finishing a handful of useless body checks every game his stats looked like a big bowl of Cheeri-0's here.

Couldn't get rid of him fast enough after chasing him all over the trade deadline for 2 years!

Another void: Mike York. 2 ply soft player.

For the love of everything holy is anyone gonna mention Sean Brown? Cripes.

Ulanov wasnt so good at the end, but before that he was actually one of our better d men.

Yeah he does, the Cross/Ulanov pairing in the voice of comic book guy was the 'worst pairing ever' Ulanov was okay when he first got here but was deservingly terrible after that.

Brown was worse (at his best) than any incarnation of Ulanov.

Tommy salo? really? Everyone always defines his career by that goal against Belarus. Stupid. He was a very good and most important consistent goaltender for the oilers.

That's cause he was playing with Cory Cross.
