If you want to read about the last eight games of the Oilers' season against the Western Conference, who are licking their chops in anticipation of handing our local squadron their asses, this ain’t the article for you.
This is about decoupling our city's self image from our beloved Oilers until they can get their shit together and give us something to believe in again.
Consider yourself warned.

That the Edmonton Oilers are not a good team is not news. Three coaches (if we include Craig MacTavish’s five-game stint) have now tried and failed this season to get good results out of this roster. The question now is whether the third coach, Todd Nelson, should be back next season.

I don’t know about you, but I found myself fixated on Nikita Nikitin as he lurched around the ice shift after shift for the Edmonton Oilers on the way to a 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets at Rexall Place Monday. I was half-expecting a leg or an arm to fall off. Thankfully, no.

Everybody... tank your body. Everybody... tank. Your. Body right. Final Score: 4-1 Jets.

The Edmonton Oilers' 2014/2015 season has not been good (understatement of the year), but when you look at how they match up against western division opponents; it has been downright pathetic.
The Oilers are 5-25-10 against the west.
They've been outscored 138 to 80.
They've been outshot 1,230 to 1,068.
They are 3-15-1 at home.
