Captain Canada. Mr. Oiler. Ryan freaking Smyth. Does he want to go? Can we endure one more airport moment? Is there a market? Oh my. This again.

It's an ill will she blows this morning, ladies and men. We are stone cold frozen, indoors, outdoors and in the western conference. The blues aren't blue enough, the country tear-jerkers can't find the lines, the poets can't stop the clocks in rhyme.
The Battle of Alberta is desolation row.

Last night, the Oilers were shutout for the 5th time at home and 8th time all year. Many fans felt their play was offensive, and not in a goal scoring kind of way.
In his post-game press conference Dallas Eakins said, "We have some good offensive players but I don't look at us as a real offensive team," and that comment offended some fans more than the performance on the ice.
I tweeted that comment and many fans were livid and most blamed the coach. (Do you sense a trend in Edmonton?)
Are the Oilers regressing offensively, or have they been an offensively challenged team for years?

Well it’s safe to say, I miss watching Team Canada play in the Olympics for gold. I found last night's game incredibly boring and I’m sure many felt some sort of emotional letdown. If you didn’t right away, surely a 3-0 loss to the Minnesota Wild did the trick.

As much of a dumpster fire as this season has been for the Edmonton Oilers, there was at least a hint of anticipation as fans dutifully filed into Rexall Place to begin the stretch drive against the Minnesota Wild after three weeks off for the Olympic break. Should have known better.
