Oilers fans are a diverse bunch, but they can agree on two things without any doubt:

  • They’ve suffered a lot lately.
  • When suffering, nothing feels better than irrationally scapegoating a defenceman.

With that in mind, we present the Oilers defencemen whipping boy power rankings!

I've never liked stuffing. I didn't eat it as a child, and as a grown up I always politely, and quickly, pass the bowl of stuffing to the person beside me at the table. It is easy to bypass stuffing at the dinner table, but tonight it will be difficult for the Oilers to avoid another thrashing stuffing at the hands of the Nashville Predators.

The Oilers have lost seven straight games, and they must be ready from the opening puck drop or the game will be over after 20 minutes.

There is no question that things are horribly bad right now for the OilersNation.  Some folks are even calling it the worst time in franchise history – which seems insane given that 1) The Gretzky Trade 2) SCF 2006 G7.

It’s actually pretty rare that there isn’t consensus on who the 1st pick should be. These players dominated in their eligible years and have a combination of size, skill, and determination to become the best in their peer groups. This year there’s Connor McDavid. Before that it was Nate MacKinnon. The Oilers took 3 players 1st Overall in subsequent years and selected the favourite every single year.
