Last night's loss was the tipping point for many loyal Oiler fans. After four days off, the Oilers flat out didn't compete in Phoenix.
What has to change so the Oilers don't find themselves in a race for another top-five pick?

When the Edmonton Oilers miss the playoffs for a sixth straight season, fans will be able to look at losses like the inexcusable 4-2 defeat they suffered against the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday as a reason why.

By 1990, Gretzky headed for the coast and the Boys On the Bus were buying airplanes and making real life decisions. For Glen Sather and the Oilers it was a case of replacing superstars and impact players with the best available talent. The kids were alright.

It really is that simple.
The Oilers should be well-rested when they take on the Coyotes in Phoenix tonight. The 'Yotes lost 4-1 last night in Anaheim, while the Oilers haven't played since being shutout in Calgary on Saturday. If the main reason why the Oilers haven't beaten the Flames in three tries this year is because they've faced them in the second half of back-to-back sets, then the Oilers should beat a tired Coyotes team tonight.
