It took us 76 games, a hundred odd posts and a hojillion comments defending this team but it has finally happened. We have officially had enough of this shitanusly mediocre 2008-2009 Edmonton Oilers hockey squadron. Don't get us wrong. We sit firmly planted on the Oilers bandwagon. It's just that none of the players seem interested in driving us anywhere.

When the fans are more jacked up for the game than the players are – something is wrong.

We for one pity the poor old OilersNation, sitting there in the stands at RX1 and at home wanting something - anything - to cheer for. At a time when lots of folks are worried about losing their job, making rent and generally just getting by RX1 continues to sell out night after night. Once upon a time, there are a good many folk who were ballin’ out of control with Oil comfortably over $100 per barrel. Now, not so much. Yet these same folk continue to shoulder the bulk of the ticket buying load, making a conscious decision to continue to spend hundreds of their hard earned dollars on "Oilers hockey" game after terrible game. There they were again last night, filling the arena to high in the rafters and even patiently standing on those little standing room only squares. Honest, hard working blue collar folk who continue to arrive in droves despite the absolute and total lack of commitment and desire to win on the ice that awaits them. And did they boo this awful bunch of cheque collecting, merlot drinking sissies? No. They sat glued to their seats hoping one of the players in Copper and Blue might find something resembling a beating heart late in the third period and step up to the plate.

In times like these it’s staggering to realize that most people inside Rexall probably worked harder to get into the game than the bulk of the Oilers did during the game.

When your 46 year old goalie is starting his 98th game in a row – something is wrong.

When we saw Roloson face the media, tired as all hell, older than all hell, sweaty as all hell and having done all he could and yet taking the blame for the loss something inside us snapped. Are you kidding us Oilers? How in the sweet holy fuck can any of you sit around in the dressing room and see the old man in the corner who is absolutely busting his nuts and not feel guilty about the level to which you mail it in night after night? We can’t help but feel terrible for Roloson at this stage of the game. So you let in a couple of floaters early on Roli. Who gives a shit? See the other guys sitting there on the bench wearing the same jersey as you? Those idiots are supposed to do more than come down and give you a supportive whack on the pads after they have collapsed yet again. They are supposed to go down into the opposition’s end and score a few of their own and bail you out.

Nothing here is your fault Sir. We salute your efforts. You are an absolute warrior and if we have ever chirped you on this site we humbly apologize. The rest of you Oilers? Whatever.

When you need a leader to step up and pop in a late goal and nothing arrives – something is wrong.

Where in the fuck was anything resembling a leader with the season hanging in the balance? Where was a single one of these overpriced boneheads when it counted? Nowhere, that’s where and it breaks our fucking heart to see this team mail it in night after night. What the hell is Kay-Z paying for here exactly? The cheques that you deposit with charming regularity are real gentlemen. The effort most of you are putting out on the other hand - is not.

Shame on the whole fucking team except Roli. Do any of you have any interest in stepping up and saving this season? Any of you at all? Hemsky - you seem to be a talent. Where are you with the game on the line last night? Horcoff? What about you? You have taken mad heat for signing a huge contract. Why not quiet your haters by popping in a goal here or there? We could go on down the list, but what is the use?

The I told you sos

Yeah Brownlee we get it. You predicted that the Oilers wouldn’t make the playoffs. This entire team is riddled with problems and you saw that and were able to inspire the legions of Oilers haters all year. You haters were all so wise and gave up on the team in the preseason whereas it took us till game 76 of a terrible season before we had our fill. Well you know what? We would rather have hope for 7 months of the year that things could turn out than write them off before the season rolls.

But that’s just how we roll.

And all the people that are going to come on here today and tell us how smart they were to know that the team sucked the entire year and this result was a foregone conclusion? Fuck you too. It's hilarious that you would surface now to rub salt in the wounds of the thousands on here that have lived and died with this team the entire season. If we could meet some of you in person this morning we would sucker punch you directly in the face and then stand over you waiting to see if you have any interest in making other smart ass remarks. So shut it. Brownlee is a professional journalist who isn't supposed to be a fan of the team. We understand why he makes predictions and then stands by them. The rest of you so called fans that come on here to hate - what possible motivation do you have to get up in the morning? To shit on everyone else's parade?

The Oilers should never have traded Ryan Smyth. He would have scored last night with the season on the line.

There we said it.

Guys like you who just love to sit back and sh1t on everything are about as useful as that empty Bud Light that Budweiser included in my 15 pack the other day. You have probably the biggest haterade flavored man crush on Katz as I have ever seen. There is absolutely no reason to go on hating as hard as you do. If you think the people on here get some sort of special thrill from watching you run down Katz I’d be willing to bet you are wrong. You coming on here day after day and ragging on the team we all love and cheering for complete financial implosion is getting real old. I don’t know what the Oilers did to you in your lifetime nor do I care. Knock this “I will be so happy if the Oil go broke and have to close” nonsense off before you embarass yourself any further.

the entire nhl is in meltdown..... during the allstar break... this site and others got their pants wet over vinny L leaving Tampa - the major play was Vinny being sold or traded to the habs and I typed in that Gilette was in financial trouble was bankrupt before and could not afford Vinny - I was laughed at by ON and either Bauer or Dakin told me that Gilette was flush - now he is nothing but a Skalbania borrowing from peter to pay paul - that doesn't work anymore and you have to sell peter to keep paul afloat.....

funny how you don't refute the rexall sports argument versus being owned by an individual - this is a brand extension with lowe being given the keys to run the store... when a few teams go bankrupt - then the 200million will be a far fetched number....

I can't see him staying next year when his family is already down east and there will be 4 or 5 clubs looking to obtain him.

What is the plan B if he leaves?

it is fun to see this pyramid scheme fail

note - katz will not go bust - but it is funny how everyone has annointed him the owner with no background check - if he was up front and told the followers he was the founder of this billionaire company and that rexall was buying the team not him and he was the governor or team trustee - that would be more plausible...

how can a lawyer who couldn't merge two corporations in the early 90"s be the mastermind of this generic drug backward integration with mckesson..... hello dad... thanks barry - for the annual income for being the spokesperson founder of rexall with mckesson puching their products out the door......

no more lbo's - financing is gone into the toilet

bottom line you have a silent owner and no one is scared for their jobs and mact is so depressed that the media is talking about his voluntary resignation....with pay......

this sounds like more of acceptance of failure than confidence to win......

Maybe Katz is evil...His master plan is to make the Oilers so bad that all of the fans stock up on Rexall brand headache and nausea meds. An underperforming hockey team mixed with overpriced flat draft beer is a wicked combination. Throw in his security force actively kicking out fans at the drop of the hat, and the imitation nacho cheese, and that's 17,000 fans 41 times a year with awful headaches and indigestion.

Well played Mr. Katz...well played.

I think you just set a record for number of times you either contradicted yourself (he's a silent owner - no wait he doesn't own the team, Rexall Sports does), slandered Katz (without proof), or just plain wrote things that aren't true.

Either you come out, name yourself and provide concrete sources (you know, besides Googled articles) or STFU. You have zero credibility here as it is, so what do you have to lose.

BTW - I used to know Darryl Katz way back in the day when he and his dad (Barry, at least you got that part right) started things. The fabrications you're putting out there are the result of a vindictive, delusional personality. Get some help bud.

@ deepoil: Just a quick question: why would it matter if Katz owns Rexall and Rexall owns the Oil. Perhaps it makes more sense from a tax perspective for Rexall Sports to be owned by the corporation and not Katz personally. Basically it is all semantics.

BTW, Katz is the OWNER, not the spokesperson. He doesn't need to be nor should he be on TSN every night spouting his "vision".

I just want to say that i am still going to hang on to my playoff hopes as unlikely as that is with every passing game. And if they are out i will survive on the hope and joy of somebody, anybody beating the flames.(I still love the lightning) A real Oilers fan never cheers for the Flames. He only considers burning down the saddledome if they get too close to another cup. All you so called Oiler fans who cheer for the flames in the playoffs make me want to puke.

You gotta feel for Zack. He is a heart and soul guy and to get shuffled off to the press box for no apparent good reason really makes you wonder.

Just wondering how many 3rd or 4th line players are the captain of their team?

Your comments are right on the money, the oilers look lost most nights, the players whether on the ice or on the bench look like they are waiting for the buzzer to go so they can rush to the bank to cash the big fat paycheque that us blue collar bastards shell out for. It makes me sick to think that the oilers don't seem to really care what the fans think and show very little effort most nights. I hope the oilers do not make the playoffs so maybe then they will make the moves needed to improve and give us fans some hope for the future. I wonder how much enjoyment Mr Katz is getting out of his first year of ownership??

Would it be better to state that Rexall owns the team with assistance from Mckesson and spokesperson founder Daryl Katz will speak to the media once a year.... once approved by his contact within the oilers broadcast crew...

It appears that you used to know Darryl in the past, but not anymore..... I still know his co-workers that have provided the anecdotes about his failure as a lawyer - alleged for your consideration. I have as much hope for this organization as the financial performance of it's partner in Edmonton COLD -FX - can you say should of sold short......

Bottom line is how can you sheep support this non winning organization that accepts failure without action or reaction..... this is a haven for UFA's that want to cash in and have no fear of performance issues or retribtion of being bought out sent to the minors as the moron DOHO is more interested in fighting associates rather than creating respect amongst the franchise.... moron, moron, moron, play the tape and look in the mirror.

@ Deep Oil

I can't speak to Darryl's "failure" as a lawyer, but just about every reputable business publication in Canada (and I stress the word "reputable", unlike yourself) will vouch for his success as a businessman, not to mention his $30 million mansion at the end of Valleyview Drive. Obviously things didn't work out for you to the same degree. Sorry about that.

But I can say that he's a decent guy who's done alot for this city, which I'm sure is more than anybody could say about the likes of you. But go ahead, keep on with the anonyMOUSE slamming of the guy on internet forums. I'm sure it makes you feel good.

On CHED last night they were playing Oiler interviews of the guys saying how much they would appreciate the fans to really cheer for the team in the next five games. It means so much to them.

How about maybe we cheer? Maybe we don't? Or maybe we only cheer in the middle period and then sit on our hands?

WTF! Why these lazy asses think they deserve to get their giant inflated egos to finish this season is typical of the entitlement they think they have.

How about for the next five games we let them know what we think of their dedication to the game?

I'm going to the game Thursday, and to the last home game of the season. I'd love to cheer, as long as they do something that would warrant it.

I remember at the beginning of the year, I think it was Moreau who said they weren't going to be a hitting team this year, which made me wonder why the f not? The players want the fans to cheer? How about laying a big hit in the corner instead of skating away, or a huge shot block on the PK might do it as well.

They had better come out flying tonight.

@ deepoil: Why do you come on here all the time deepoil if you hate the team so much? Why not just go do something else altogether and ignore them. You brag about how rich you are, why not just follow the Coyotes if it’s so great down there.

Actually, I stated that I took my season ticket money (two golds - over $12K) and used it for holidays with my family of 4..... better value only risk is it might rain - not in Scottsdale and only in July in Nuevo....

But it appears that there are at least 1307 suckers waiting in line to give away their money..... sheep, sheep sheep....

Now this morning on the team..... 5 players gave interviews and asked the fans to be louder and cheer harder.... what a bunch of crap....

On CHED last night they were playing Oiler interviews of the guys saying how much they would appreciate the fans to really cheer for the team in the next five games. It means so much to them. How about maybe we cheer? Maybe we don’t? Or maybe we only cheer in the middle period and then sit on our hands? WTF! Why these lazy asses think they deserve to get their giant inflated egos to finish this season is typical of the entitlement they think they have. How about for the next five games we let them know what we think of their dedication to the game? Pay it back.

abdulah - you already paid once for your tickets Pay it back seems like an exercise in self mutilation.. maybe cheering for the ducks would send a better message

I am not sure if you are allowed to cheer for the opposition in the arena (note avoidance to corporate name of pharmaceutical sponsorship) - eviction is possible.....

Note to all pregnant women attending the game tonight wearing an oiler or ducks jersey with 44 on the back is prohibited - exposing your bellies is also forbidden... that is a 6 month ban, based on the lady exposing her breasts this pre season......

Instead of Monkeys, why don't the oilers give out free smirnoff at the door (similar to the Glendale Coyotes) that would liven up the arena otherwise known as RX1

Who are the players that are asking the fans to cheer harder? What a load of excrement. I'd like to ask them when have they ever thrown a big hit, blocked a shot, got a good odd-man chance and not had the crowd go nuts in response? The crowd is silent because there aren't enough $8 beers in the world to make getting badly outshot and physically dominated by Phoenix exciting.

If the team played the game with half of the balls it took to call out the fans they'd be comfortably in the playoffs right now.

And so the apocolypse of another crappy season by the Oilers is ready to go soundly into the night with the sounds of multiple toilets flushing. This team has no direction and every night starts the game out by seeing who could be the biggest wussy out on the ice. If you watch any other teams that flat out want it you see the differences. Why can't the Oilers get the puck shoot it on net and drive one home?

I forgot theres way too much skill on this team and they want to score the most prettiest goals this side of Detroit. You know I love this team, I love the fans and this year more then any I've been going f'in nuts watching them get slaughtered, out hit, outshot and out balls'd every other game. They talk about the leadership by the guys here. What leadership? Most times these guys look like grabassing pantywaists who decide that passing to the guy with the sharpest angle shot will get it done or wait for Hemsky to skate the puck around the net and pass it to the other team. Zero effort with no game plan and this is what to fuckin expect from this team with this stupid so called system.

I don't know what needs to happen but as much as I say I'm pissed off I know I'll still love this team at the end of the day. I've said it a million times over.... FN' OILERS!!!!

@ deepoil: Just a quick question: why would it matter if Katz owns Rexall and Rexall owns the Oil. Perhaps it makes more sense from a tax perspective for Rexall Sports to be owned by the corporation and not Katz personally. Basically it is all semantics. BTW, Katz is the OWNER, not the spokesperson. He doesn’t need to be nor should he be on TSN every night spouting his “vision”.

not every night - but twice a year would be a 100% increase in presence - this team is just a line item filed under advertising and promotion for mckesson
