Can the outcome of the final ten games make a difference in the long-term growth of the Oilers? Unless they shock us and win 7 or 8 of 10 I don't see it altering much. The Oilers are six points back of 28th Minnesota, so unless the Oilers pick up 15 or 16 of a possible 20 points, I don't see them losing 29th place. Dropping a spot in the lottery is the only way the outcome of these final ten games will alter their future, barring a major injury of course.
What needs to be altered is the culture of this organization.

It is probably dreaming in technicolor. However, if the Edmonton Oilers can sign Jason Garrison as an unrestricted free agent July 1, our friend math suggests there should be dancing in the streets.

For me, the highlight of the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 shootout loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday was guffawing like a slobbering knucklehead when Sportsnet play-by-play man Kevin Quinn slipped on a Freudian banana peel and called Theo Peckham "Theo Pecker" during the first period.

Another rollercoaster weekend for Oiler fans as you watched the Oilers man-handle the Flames on Friday, and then blow a two-goal lead last night v. the Coyotes. Such is life in Oilersnation.
