Taylor Hall is currently being traded...by everyone with an internet connection who does not cheer for the Edmonton Oilers. Today I decided to share a few of my favorites because we should all share in a few laughs.

The Oilers losses keep mounting, and the Nation awaits what kind of changes will be made (if any) throughout the organization. Until then, it's my job to keep things light around here, and try to have some fun in one of the darkest times in Oilers history. Enter the photoshop contest. As always, the entries were hilarious. Today, we pick the winners.

I appreciated Dallas Eakins' honesty when discussing his time with the Oilers. "We probably got ahead of ourselves systems wise. We should have focused on the fundamentals more," Eakins said.
He also stated that he should have been more patient. "The thing you forget, and I was guilty of it too, is that you forget the players are 19, or 21 or 23. They are pulling on the jersey and going on the ice and you expect them to play like they are 28 or 29 years old. It just isn't there yet."
I agreed with those comments, however, I couldn't get behind his statement to the fans. "My message to the people here and to the fans is, I can speak freely now, and like it or not you need to be patient."

The MacNelson regime begins tonight. Craig MacTavish will go behind the bench for an unspecified amount of time, to help transition the team to Todd Nelson, and then Nelson will be the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.
MacTavish wants to get a more accurate pulse of his team, and I believe get a firsthand insight into which players he likes and who he wants to jettison out of town.
The pressing question is: will this coaching change help the team?
