    ...the Oilers go ahead and play another game.

    6 straight losses

    3 straight games with a lead going into the 3rd. 3 straight losses.

    And a Drake Caggiula goal for the cherry on top

    We are 3 points from last place and 3 points from a WC spot. What a season

    Chiarelli has has ****ed this team for years to come. It’s going to be a minimum 3 year job to build a winner and that’s IF we get a GM who knows what the hell they’re doing. We have 2 players worth keeping but honestly subjecting McDavid to rebuild v4.0 is cruel and unusual punishment. I would not blame him whatsoever if he requested a trade because we’d get a king’s ransom for him. But more realistically, keep him and trade/buyout/release every other single player on the roster.
    RNH: 1st rounder + mid-level prospect.
    Drai: 1st rounder + additional picks + top tier prospect.
    Nurse: 1st rounder + additional low pick.
    Chiasson (at trade deadline): 3rd rounder.
    Klefbom: I would be okay with keeping Klef.
    Talbot: anything higher than a 3rd rounder would be great.
    Puljujarvi: trade for a prospect of similar value who needs a change of scenery.
    Russell: 3rd rounder
    Kassian/Rattie/Khaira/Benning/Petrovic/Reider/Brodziak: anything.
    Attach one of the obtained 1st rounder + additional pick + salary retained to whoever will take Lucic.
    Aim for top 3 pick for the next 3 years and we might have a chance to have an elite team while McDavid still has years left on his contract. First and foremost before any other moves, every single front office employee is gone, including both Gretzky’s. Nothing will change with this franchise until the rotting deadweight is excised. All those guys are a cancer.
    Also, I’ll trade one of my jerseys for a noose to hang myself. **** this team.

    Chicago is not even good. Pretty embarassing.

    So, how bad does this need to get before Katz will take running this team seriously for the first time ever? Or is there no low low enough for that?

    He has to be a bit concerned about the expensive seats all being up for renewal. No more allure of the new arena. Now everyone knows that you can still have a trash team that isn't worth watching even with a generational player.

    I dunno If the Gi was called correctly it would have only been 3-2 Chi. Making it 4-2 completely changes things

    I disagree. Team looked like they had completely given up when it was 3-2
