The Edmonton Oilers would be foolish not to look at all available coaching candidates between now and next season, but if Todd Nelson can keep the team collecting points at the rate they have in his first 18 games solo behind the bench, he at least deserves to be in the conversation.

We won? We won! Final Score: 2-1 Oilers.

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!
