That bugs me the most, these assclowns don't give a crap to try. Game in and game out.

I don't think any team can make the kind of trades the Oilers are going to need in only 2 years. They need to change out at least half the team + find decent back-up goaltending. That's a pretty big ask for any one, especially when the Oilers don't have assets to trade in the minors either. Sadly, I feel like they're just stuck in a rut full of muck for the next 4 years at least.

I'd love to be wrong though....

On Sportsline in the pre-season it was mentioned the Oilers can't rebuild because the fans wouldn't let them. The fans couldn't handle a rebuild as HFBoards would explode with negativity. We're seeing it now. Can you imagine what would happen during a rebuild. The fans don't have the patience for a rebuild.

Lowe wanted to do a rebuild in 2007 but EIG wouldn't let him. He had no plans of the OS or signing Souray but EIG forced him to do it.

"He just ate up Robyn Regehr for dinner, a spectacular play by Hemsky, and Robyn Regehr has got doo doo all over his face" - Rod Phillips call on Hemsky's goal vs the Flames

I'm not saying the fans would be impatient, I'm saying Lowe would be.
