It Can Always Get Worse

March 5, 2010

Lubo is for the quacking!

A wise philosopher once said that we needed to regress in order to progress, and never has that statement rang more true. Granted the guy’s name was Shredder and for some reason I could also see through time, but the point remains that the Edmonton Oilers hockey squadron just regressed in a mighty way. They’re icing a d-corps straight out of the AHL (the ECHL for a lotta teams), and one of the guys they just picked up on waivers has as many points as the team’s highest paid centreman.

This is going to get worse before it gets better. Man, I hate being right all the time. I don’t even want to write about the players that are gone. It hurts I tell you. It’s amazing how one can become attached to a professional athlete.

    Can they just fire everyone and start from scratch? It is sad losing a few of the guys, but don’t you think they deserve a chance somewhere else? And do you think this year is in any way a reflection on Pat Quinn as a coach or do the Oil just have bad luck?

    I don’t think it has anything to do with Quinn, and all to with the bad players he has in front of him. You can only have so many of the exact same player.
    If they could fire everyone, I actually don’t think they would. There are a couple good players, but players that are only good when they play with other good players.
