As promised the 2012 Lockout has condensed the 2013 season and put 'er on FF. Normally as Oilers fans we are entitled to at least several weeks of unreasonable optimism, followed by about a month or so where we are confused and perplexed about the team. Are they underachieving? Is the performance we are seeing legitimate given the talent the team has? Then we turn on each other for a month or two and then finally invent snazzy acronyms for being in last place.
But with the lockout shortened season this annual dance has been compressed and months have become weeks. Weeks have turned into days. Days become seconds. It's all happening so fast.

It shatters our mind that we have to write this article but some real sons of bitches out there are asking for it saying Ryan Smyth is finished and his healthy scratching last night was an excellent play.
Its just embarassing that we are the fans of the same team. Embarassing.

A sunny monday morning in Edmonton finds some of us shaking our heads in wonder that the Oilers have cooled off so mightily. Others are happy that the Good Guys pulled out a win in Columbus and look to the next game against (goes and looks) Columbus? Again? After a pair of matinees? Who made this schedule?!
BAH. Theres a Draft update and the first run of NationTees dropping after the jump.

A slumpbuster is defined as "something way below your normal standards that you know you can win at." You take what you can get to get back in the game. That's todays game vs Columbus in a nutshell. And its a matinee too. *yawns*

So an overtime loss and the Oilers falling to 4-3-3 through 10 games has led to people calling for massive changes, hate lazers focused squarely on Ryan Whitney, the precious Nuge taking flack and even some pockets of Eberle hate does it?
