You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

Outscored 20-3 in our past 5 games. Good thing we traded Hall,Eberle, the 1st and 2nd Round picks in 2015 for all that defensive help....

stupid

I'm officially done as an Oilers fan. I've had enough of this trash.

Later gang... I'm going to start researching other squads to figure out who I'd like to cheer for moving forward. Too bad I bought this stupid McDavid jersey last year.

Team has clearly given up.

And so we wait for the transition from total defeat to auditioning for next year and feeling like we can play nothing to lose hockey.

Only, McLellan wasn't too kind about the last 1/3 season loser period in his first year here. Still railed on everyone about every mistake they made, and ran guys out of town.



If a coaching change is in the books, better do it ASAP.

Outscored 20-3 in their last 5 games.

Two of those 3 goals were by defensemen. The one goal by the forward (Draisaitl) was on the power play.

Not good. Change needs to happen in coaching and management... I'm not sure it will.

This entire hockey organization is mess of shambles. Another round of firings is coming, just a question of do they finally turf the root problems and do they bring in people that can fix it. The names keep changing but the problems persist.

No Cups

Only watched about 10 mins of the Dallas beat down (10 mins to many) and skipped this one altogether. It's quite the disturbing that a team that went into the 2nd round last year has clearly no desire to push for the playoffs. People can blame coaching and management all they want (I do as well) but honestly, these are pro athletes making millions of dollars, some playing for contracts for next year. How can the pride be completely stripped from this group. Either they are trying to get the coach fired or there's something else at work here. Trading Eberle for nothing + signing Russell for to much money and term does not equal a team this bad when you compare to the team that finished the regular season last year with largely the same core group. I'm not shocked to see a step back from last year, I think most of us expected that. What I didn't expect is a team that does not compete and isn't even competitive. They can't even grind out loses, when they lose they lose big. The current state of the team really rivals some of the worst stretches during the DOD, and that's with McDavid on this freakin' team! Right now (as in today cause I reserve the right to change my opinion) I don't care if they fire anyone, I don't care if they make the playoffs, and I don't care about the draft. I'll always be a fan, but this season has been a train wreck.

I put most the blame on Chiarelli these says, as well as alot of the sports news outlets with all their talk of this team being a Stanley Cup team already... PC screwed us when he traded Ebs... or maybe even when he Traded Hall, but he's not a good GM, and he showed that in the Strome trade. That's not a 1 for 1 trade.. you get a draft pick back in that deal, or you don't make it. Strome is not, and has not ever been on the same level as Ebs... yet he pulled the trigger, and I think the news of him doing a 1 for 1 for Ceci with Hall also shows his GM abilities. Horrible ideas by this man. Letting Hendricks go was another dumb idea... yes, he might not be the superstar we all want, but he's a team leader, and a spark plug. I bet even during the times he was benched... he was still a major voice in that locker room... and now he's over in Winnipeg, helping them instead. And Poolparty is somewhat of a let down... kinda looks like Yaksdid out there... trying hard, but just can't translate that game well enough. I think the first guy to go will me Todd.. and it shouldn't be him, he's a good coach, and we all saw that year after year with SJ and last year.. I hope its PC instead.

As for the new outlets... the cup talk I believe mentally made these kids think they were better than they were... and now that they aren't living up to it, mentally they are breaking down. And yes, I know someone will probably say "but they are professionals", doesn't matter, they are mostly kids as Well.. the stress they are carrying right now must be unreal. I feel for them... they had a whole city behind them, and now they are losing that for the most part. That's going to carrying over into your game.. and we are seeing that night after night now. I hope they work it out for next year, and quick... I'm still watching, and will til the last game... but its hard after what we all got last year.

I thought the outside pressure wouldn't be a big deal because McLellan kept saying over and over that the team needed to remember how hard it was last season, and then how the team clearly forgot how hard it was last season (with a nice bag skate a week in to remind them), and how they need to go back to playing perfect mistake free hockey and would get videos of every mistake they made with a comparison to a good play they did at some random point last year.

Sarcasm of course. I think Mclellan added to the pressure and the way he talked before the season and early into the season was basically him making statements that already assumed that the team would buckle under the pressure.

Ha, just checked the score. I'm so glad I didn't bother to watch either of the games this weekend. Like the players, I've checked out already.
