The Oilers got dominated 5-1 by Toronto, the 24th place team in the league, on Saturday night. After Wednesday's lacklustre performance vs. the Penguins, Todd Nelson expected his team's effort to be better, but it wasn't. In fact, it was worse.
We've seen that type of effort far too often the past few seasons, and I'm curious to see how Nelson reacts if his team is flat again tonight against the 23rd ranked team in the league.

I don’t want to get too many hopes up (?) but the Oilers are absolutely capable of dethroning the Buffalo Sabres for the title of “Worst Team In The NHL” in the final stretch of the season.
Now I know everybody has already crowned Buffalo the worst team in modern history, but I still think there’s a combination of events that can absolutely conspire to put the Edmonton Oilers into guaranteed McEichel territory.

They've been called "the Glenn Healy" of NHL Power Rankings, they've been furiously annotated and derided as useless. And now they're here. Available across the Nation Network: it's NHL Power Rankings!

General manager Craig MacTavish sat down for a one-on-one interview with Bob Stauffer of Oilers Now last week and laid out a blueprint for next season’s defensive group.
It’s a plan that doesn’t lack for boldness, though its wisdom is very much open to debate.
