Dear Twitter: What Does This Team Need To Do To Turn It Around?

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.

  Here’s what I got in return.

Leave it to The Nation.



We got to pray, just to make it today.

Can I trade a benching for two shots each?

I laughed

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.


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


Accountability? Sure.

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.
