Given the reality of a seemingly endless procession of mediocre/bad seasons:
Is there hope for the Edmonton Oilers?
Incredibly shit contracts for pedantic, unoffensive players who can't score in a brothel.
A bunch of dwarves, in a game almost entirely dictated by size.
Nothing special coming down the pipe, unless you're smoking one.
Oh yeah, a General Manager who clearly doesn;t know how to do his job, a "President of Hockey Operations" who should be a New York Rangers scout, and a corporate mindset more geared to blackmailing the community than improving itself as an on ice product.
