This is the bookend article to "MacT's Best Moves" which moved earlier in the week. Despite an overhaul in most areas, the results are the same for these Edmonton Oilers. A summer in the lottery is unacceptable and yet here we are. Which move was the worst?

After tasting a tough dose of reality in St.Louis last night, the Oilers will try to avoid getting murdered in Detroit tonight. The Red Wings aren't the dominant force we've been used to seeing for the past two decades. Without Nick Lidstrom their D isn't as good, and Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk won't be in the lineup together for the 6th straight game. The Wings are 1-3-1 with their two offensive leaders in the pressbox.
The Oilers have lost seven straight games in Detroit, their last victory was December 3rd, 2009, and they've only scored six goals during the last six visits. However, tonight's version of the Red Wings is not nearly as talented as team's of the past.
