We're one third of the way through this season and as always there are some who are performing above expected levels and others who have fallen behind. The list of overachievers for the Oilers is interesting, but the guys trailing "reasonable" are the story here.

They say that Birthdays were invented by Wall Street as a way to sell more candles. And who are we to argue? As a five year old we couldn't possibly argue with something as sophisticated as Wall Street.

Whatever Steve Tambellini ultimately decides to do to try and turn this struggling Oilers team around, firing the coach should not be an option at his disposal.

Much of the talk after last night's 3-1 loss to Minnesota focused on Taylor Hall's kneeing major on Cal Clutterbuck. I suspect Hall will get a short suspension from the hit, but I don't think it was malicious. Hall never took any extra strides to hit him, and he did lean in and down to avoid head contact, however, the initial point of contact looked to be a combination of Hall's knee/thigh/hip on Clutterbuck's lower thigh and he likely gets a Shanaban.
But that play shouldn't overshadow the fact that the Oilers continue to struggle in many facets of their overall game.

He played only 200 regular season games for the Oilers, and he was never a top line player. Ken Linseman's unique qualities and skills made him unforgettable in every Oiler game he played. Love him or hate him, you had to be aware of The Rat.
