Reality has hit Oilersnation, the Oilers still aren't very good, and with 41 games left to play, many want to find someone to blame and it seems Tom Renney has become a popular target. For years many some of the same fans and media clamoured that Craig MacTavish needed to go, because allegedly he stymied the offensive growth of players.

The brightest story in this Oiler season may come from ownership. With the arena situation progressing, Daryl Katz will have more time to examine the rebuild. What's been happening? Where are the successes? Failures? What should be done?

The Edmonton Oilers are halfway there. Halfway where?

The Oilers have taken a beating on this trip, and today they are a like a boxer, leaning back on the ropes trying to buy some time to avoid taking another blow that would KO them. The Oilers have lost five of six, they've given up 24 goals, they've been outshot 168-194 and they've lost two of their most consistent players in Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Tom Gilbert in the first six games of this trip.
It would be easy to mail one in this afternoon in Dallas, and return to Rexall 1-6, but this year's team hasn't shown much quit, and I expect them to give a decent effort today.

Jordan Eberle can't fly (despite appearances) but beyond that there appear to be few limitations. Eberle's importance to this edition of the Edmonton Oilers impacts the team on and off the ice.
