The Oilers were drubbed on the shot clock, 43-20. The Wild finished with four goals, Edmonton somehow managed two.
Something’s not good. Something isn’t right. Something’s gone wrong. What say you, Oilers?

I took to Twitter to get the scoop.
Oilers outshot 43 to 20.In seven words or less, what does this team need to do to turn it around?(best ones go in the game review) — Jeff Chapman (@OilOnWhyte) March 4, 2013
Here’s what I got in return.
Leave it to The Nation.
@oilonwhyte Get better players.

We got to pray, just to make it today.
Can I trade a benching for two shots each?
As long as they’re not hired thugs, sure. Finding size and talent is tough.
Again, size is great. Gimme some goal scoring talent, or maybe you can juggle, or do something other than thug it up, and I’m listening. Otherwise, we have a 20 shot team with two fighting majors.
THERE’S AN IDEA
We’re going to have to deduct a tenth of a point here for being more than 7 words, but this is the gist of it
@oilonwhyte play people with passion bench the rest

I’d settle for ones who shoot the puck on net.
More shots. More scoring chances. More goals. It’s a lot to ask for, but it’s going to have to get done sooner than later, else I’ll need a ride to the early part of the NHL Entry Draft again this year.
