Take our reader polls at bottom We’re at the quarter pole of what looms as another failed season, and Oil Country is not a happy land. The club is about to hit the road after a failed 5-game home stand that saw them lose every game without ever once taking the lead. The club has lost 6 in a row overall and 7 straight in their own barn. Call them winless streaks if you prefer, given a lonely Bettman Point against Ottawa, but opposing teams have been walking out of Rexall Place with two points with alarming frequency. There’s plenty of blame to go around. Paying customers hurled invective on the players in the aftermath of Saturday’s 7-1 loss to Chicago as can be seen in this

Oilers Fire Goaltending Coach

The #Oilers have relieved goaltender coach Frederic Chabot of his duties. Dustin Schwartz will replace Chabot in the role. — Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) November 24, 2014 Maybe not the coaching change that some fans would like to see, but a coaching change all the same. Chabot was in his sixth season with the Oilers, and even though I would debate the extent to which his coaching and/or influence has impacted the team's netminders, you can't argue that the results haven't been bad, very bad in fact, and when that happens coaches get shown the door. That's the nature of the job. Coming in to replace Chabot is Dustin Schwartz, previously of the Oil King organization. Unlike t

Goalie coach Fred Chabot fired by Edmonton Oilers; Dustin Schwartz likely replacement

Breaking news from the Edmonton Oilers this morning: A couple of ways to interpret that, the least charitable being that with Oil Country clearly looking for a pound of flesh, somebody had to go. Chabot was a likely candidate to be scapegoated, indeed many had called for his replacement this past summer at the same time that assistant coaches Kelly Buchberger and Steve Smith were let go and Craig Ramsay and Rocky Thompson hired. Chabot’s résumé looks increasingly shaky today, what with both Ben Scrivens and Viktor Fasth off to sub-.900 starts while, more tellingly, last year’s disaster Devan Dubnyk has recovered his game in Arizona. That’s the same Dubnyk who was traded

Booed Off The Ice And All The Way To The Dressing Room

The fans weren't happy with Saturday night. And they let the team know it. Saturday night wasn't a good night for the Oilers. On home ice they dropped their sixth straight game, 7-1 to the Chicago Blackhawks. As the year of losing having mounted the level of apathy among the fans at Rexall Place has also grown, and Saturday night was no different. To me it felt like most of the fans showed up knowing that the home team had little or chance of winning, and when that turned out to be the case they just shrugged and grabbed another beer. That doesn't mean they didn't voice their displeasure when all was said and done though. The fans booed the Oilers off the ice on Saturday nigh

Weekend Takeaways: Oilers can’t lose big picture

Date: 2014-11-24

The pressure is mounting in Edmonton, the pressure to do something. Anything. Now. Which is, of course, absolutely the wrong idea. It’s the kind of thinking that has, for example, kept the Toronto Maple Leafs away from the winner’s circle for 47 years. The idea, assuming this was all a plan, was to build a powerful hockey machine in Edmonton, something similar to the squad that ruled the sport in the 1980s. Even if that was impossible in a salary cap era, multiple high picks over multiple years was supposed to deliver a championship worthy outfit. It hasn’t yet. But that doesn’t mean it won’t. But it won’t if the plan gets changed now and decisions are made to make the short-term
