Having somebody stick a glove in the face of David Backes at the end of a 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues Tuesday obviously wasn’t going to change the outcome for the Edmonton Oilers or address the laundry list of shortcomings we know all too well, but it needed to be done. Of course, it wasn’t.

It’s no secret that the Edmonton Oilers are bad. Dallas Eakins was fired on December 15 after his team won just seven of its first 31 games (23 percent), but not a lot seems to have really changed; the Oilers have won just three of 13 games since (also 23 percent).
But “What Would You Do Wednesday” isn’t about obsessing over problems; it’s about finding solutions. To that end, our question today focuses on one of the Oilers’ biggest issues: goaltending. How should the team fix the position?

Just when you think that the season can’t get any worse, I present another Baggedmilk interview! Just because the Oilers can’t make the playoffs to save their lives, that doesn’t mean I can’t focus on my goal of becoming OilersNation’s own version of Howard Stern? With that, I present a portion of my interview with the one and only Dustin Nielson.

Games like this make me want to pawn my TV for a drum kit. Final Score: 4-2 Blues.

Over the next 35 days the Oilers play 15 games. In that time they will have a week off between January 20th and 27th for the All-star break, but 12 of those 15 games are on the road, and only two of them come against teams not in the playoffs or a playoff race: New Jersey and Ottawa.
The honeymoon is over for Todd Nelson. We'll see how his team fares against some tough road competition starting tonight against the very good, and big and heavy, St. Louis Blues.
