The Edmonton Oilers fired goaltending coach Freddy Chabot earlier today and replaced him with Dustin Schwartz. This isn't a surprise, but why did Craig MacTavish wait this long?

The Edmonton Oilers made a coaching change on Monday, but perhaps not the one that might have been expected. Goaltending coach Frederic Chabot was dismissed from his position, suffering the consequences of his charges collapsing in consecutive seasons.

Another dreadful Oilers week is in the books, and now you're all seeking answers. Whether or not the answers in the mailbag will apply? That's another question. If you have something you'd like to ask, email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit me up on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk. Now sit back, relax, and waste as much company time as possible. Have a good week, everybody.

The Oilers are in the midst of an eight-year playoff drought, soon to be nine.
They've already had losing streaks of five, four and six games and the season is only 21 games old. Things look very bleak.
Those stats illustrate a bad hockey club, regardless of what any analytics tell you, but for me the most disturbing sign from the Oilers hockey club came late in the second period of Saturday's 7-1 drubbing by the Chicago Blackhawks.

It's been a very tough week for the Edmonton Oilers, and the schedule offers little hope for relief. A team bleeding wins and faced with another lost season is very likely to change the verbal as soon as possible. That verbal may come in the form of a trade.
