It’s funny. The Edmonton Oilers finally appeared to be getting healthy, but it wasn’t destined to last. In the span of two games, veterans Boyd Gordon, Matt Hendricks, Mark Fayne and Andrew Ference have all been lost to the team for indeterminate amounts of time.

Worst Case Scenario: The Oilers somehow gain enough points to overtake the Leafs for 27th place in the NHL over the final weeks of the season. The team is stuck in the 4th spot in the draft and, depending on how the lottery balls sort out, they might end up picking 5th.

The Oilers and Avalanche are out of the playoffs. The Avalanche haven't officially been eliminated, but their loss in Calgary on Monday pretty much sealed their fate. They are ten points behind Winnipeg for the final wildcard spot, so both of these teams will be playing for pride and some players will be auditioning for a roster spot at the World Championships.
Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall have all said they'd love to play for Canada, but will they make the team?

If you want to read about the last eight games of the Oilers' season against the Western Conference, who are licking their chops in anticipation of handing our local squadron their asses, this ain’t the article for you.
This is about decoupling our city's self image from our beloved Oilers until they can get their shit together and give us something to believe in again.
Consider yourself warned.
