  1. I think this is the bottom line. All I read on here is rationalizing. Blah blah, "visually better", "losing by 1 goal", "injuries". Same old stuff, year after year. We are LAST PLACE people. AGAIN. Totally, utterly, unacceptable. And yet, Kevin Lowe and MacT are still around. Howson - I have no idea. When the Oilers talk about accountability, they need to look at themselves in the mirror. These jokers have made this organization a laughing stock, make no mistake. Read an excerpt from Kevin Lowe's bio: "Lowe has been instrumental in the renewed success of the team, both on and off the ice." This reeks of total incompetence on every level. Are they even on the same planet?? Renewed success?? We are the worst team in the NHL consistently!!! When these clowns are gone, then, and finally then will I think this franchise is serious about winning. Until then - I can save myself a whole lot of time and skip watching games and just take a 2 secs snapshot of the standings every week and confirm this. 30th place and strong
  2. So the guy builds a terrible franchise, and then gets promoted. He then hires crap GMs who built terrible teams, and he gets a new job. How on earth does this guy still exist?? He probably did the worst interviews I have ever seen...the fans hate him, and yet, when Chiarelli talks about coming here, he mentions no one else but...Lowe. It's really unbelievable. Can we please for the love of anything just FIRE KEVIN LOWE???
  3. The Oilers are so bad they can't lose right. We could have had 1st overall...
  4. I have faith in Mac T in dealing with our roster. I mean just look at his assessments as head coach. He was probably the only hockey manager out there who realized the true potential of Toby Peterson, comparing him to the likes of Joe Sakic. And yes although he had to step down, he spent that time refusing all the offers from other NHL teams that were desperately after him and instead focused on finishing his presitgious MBA online. I am sure all those courses on organizational behaviour and quantitative analysis will do wonders on him realizing how truly amazing the management structure that has been built under Kevin Lowe. As for Kevin Lowe, everyone is quick to forget he took us to the cup with his trades in 2006. This alone should allow tenure for life. And we all know that infamous letter describing how Pouliot, Jacques, Stortini were going to be part of a stanley cup. This man has vision and should be allowed to continue course. Keep faith! Oilers are on track!
  5. Yes, Oilers are off the hook for Dubs because he is a UFA at the end of the season and now we have some 32 yrs old plug on our payroll until 2017 at $1.85 million.
  6. So... Paying half of Dubey's salary to pick up a 4pts $1.85 M center...BRUTAL http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/oilers-trade-devan-dubnyk-nashville-matt-hendricks-reason-194022710--nhl.html
  7. Or not have a moronic & egotisical President of Hockey Ops or GM or whatever he calls himself. We have the worst management in modern professional sports

  9. I think I got the fix... Everyone is talking about Yaks, 1st rounder, Eberle, blah blah. I say we talk to Katz and trade the entire team. Katz should make a call down to Phoenix and lets trade the teams straight up. Everyone except Moss goes and vice versa. We get a legitimate NHL team without the Old Boys Club and they still get to keep a NHL team that all 10,000 fans watch on a regular basis. I'm sure a good 1/3 of them are Edmonton escapees so Im sure they will appreciate the old Oilers dinosaurs, oh I mean dynasty. Katz throws in some millions and everyone is happy. Katz get his team, we get some playoffs which otherwise will not be happening in the forseeable future, Pheonix gets some cash for a money losing enterprise, and their fan base can cheer on KLOW and company as they talk about Stanley Cup rings and a young and skill core group of players. I think it's our best chance. Katz...get on it...
  10. What happened to Gagner?? Why is he such garbage?
  11. What will this year's excuse be? a. Too many injuries b. Kevin Lowe lost his stanley cup rings and thus forgot how to win c. MacT needs more time d. New coach and new system, be patient e. We made it to the cup finals 7 years ago, we are on the right track f. Too much travel and time zones, it's not fair g. We didn't want to make the Eskimos look bad h. Season is too long i. Rebuilding year j. We need more 1st overall picks k. Tambellini left this team in a mess. We need more MacT l. Fans aren't loud enough and good enough
  12. Exactly...Bruins got a cup and the Canadians are generally consistenly in the playoffs....
