08:06 AM ET 04.15 | So much for this being the season all those high draft picks drive the Oilers out of the basement chase. Tentative Tambellini has to take the fall for the failure of the Edmonton Oilers to rise. Steve Tambellini can't keep firing the coach. It's his turn to take the bullet. Seven games remain for the Oilers as they mop up a seventh straight season out of the playoffs and one thing has become more than obvious. It's been tracking this way all lockout-shortened season. ... In the last three years it was pointless to point the finger at management because acquiring the No. 1 draft pick was the point. This year the idea was to reach for the top. Management failed this hockey team this season.

Tentative Tambellini, Laughable Lowe and Kluless Kruger all need to go. The Oil need a real President, a real GM and a real NHL coach. And, oh, yeah. All the vacuous veterans need to go too.

On Saturday even the players' bench doors didn't work.

Repititive, ridiculous, yet realistic and redundant.

Oh, no, never. Tepid tea is nasty and nauseous.

You should have saved that one for a Bruins thread.

I believe that Tamby should get this off season as the last one was a waste (well besides getting Schultz )due to the lockout . But if by X-mas they aren't in the mix
