On Saturday night, the Oilers got walloped by the Calgary Flames. Losing by a touchdown to a team as bad as Calgary has prompted yet another round of questions about the direction of the Oilers franchise. Just how much should we read into the defeat?
In two words: not much.

On January 27th, 2009 the Oilers got crushed at home 10-2 by Buffalo. It was considered the lowest of low points for the Oilers. But then the 2010 season happened, followed by the 2011 campaign, the 2012 season and then this past Saturday the 29th place Oilers got humiliated 8-1 by the 26th place Calgary Flames. Many said it was the low point for a once proud and successful franchise.
We've learned that things can get better, however, they can also get worse.
The Oilers organization is broken, on and off the ice, and it needs fixing.

There's a sizeable and growing segment of Edmonton Oiler fans who believe their team's plummet to rock bottom these past eight seasons begins at the top. I have a difficult time disagreeing with them.

Canada's junior teams are beginning their playoffs this weekend, with championships in the WHL, OHL and QMJHL at stake, plus a chance to play for the Memorial Cup in May. The Oilers have several kids playing and early results are very good.
