If you are firmly behind the rebuild, I'm sure you did a fist pump when you woke up this morning, looked at the standings, and realized the Oilers are officially in 30th place. Exciting Last Place Hockey has been Wanye's mantra all season long, and at least for a day it is legit. The New Jersey Devils picked up 12 more points than the Oilers in the past ten games, and are on their way up the standings, while the Oilers have fans thinking of "slogans" for the final 32 games.
"We'll go through hell to get A.L."
"Ride the powerplay all the way to Couturier."
"I'll chug preparation H to pick R.N.H."
"Play Khabby and we'll draft Gabby."
**If you use any of these groaners, the NATION and I want credit.**

Last night, we considered the scoring chance plus/minus for every defenceman on the Edmonton Oilers. This morning, it’s time to look at the forwards.

For the second season in a row, Oilers blogger Dennis has taken on the mammoth task of charting scoring chances in every single Oilers game, and posting the data at mc79hockey.com. Earlier today, he posted the results for two missed games from earlier in the year, and now we have a complete set of scoring chance statistics for the Oilers.
Let’s start by looking at the defence.

Good afternoon, Oilers Nation. We have a very special announcement.

I don't have any doubt it makes sense for Edmonton Oilers GM Steve Tambellini and Los Angeles Kings boss Dean Lombardi to talk between now and the NHL trade deadline. I'd suggest they already have.
