I would love, LOVE, an equivalent column on the Oilers talking about some long term trends that have been obvious to some, invisible to others. And not just about the players either. If properly executed (the column, not the Oilers dissenters) could be one of those 5 part long form pieces the media has fallen in love with over the past few years. All we need is a hero in the media and a catchy nickname.

Now this is an article.

Great read, classic calling out the "atlanta Association".

I may have missed it, but I didnt see Kane in that article. Wonder what the writers opinion is on him?

That statement on Trouba is bang on too; after the Oiler game he was mighty pissed on the effort by the team and just plain sour.


We already have a nickname; it's the Fab 5.

Maybe it's fitting to have found religion in the room because on most nights this team doesn't have a prayer.

Or more appropriately for this context the fab 4.

I dont think anyone would suggest that Yakupov is a part of the untouchable, satisfied clique.

Ok Fab 4 plus Gagner. That would make it the Fab 5
