11:10 AM ET 11.16 | A season that began with cautious optimism has turned into a nightmare for the Edmonton Oilers. They suffered a 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks last night to fall to a dismal 4-15-2. That puts them on track for a possible fourth first-overall pick in just five seasons. Forward Taylor Hall was the first of those top draft selections. He's endured losing season after losing season and he's sick of it. "I'm just so tired of coming in here after games and having to give a reason why we lost," Hall said, according to Sportsnet's Gene Principe and Ryan Dittrick. "We need to win. Doesn't matter how. We need it."

Who's going to listen to a guy who looks about 15 anyway.

If he's getting tired of it, imagine the fans.

Surprised he hasn't accused the other teams of bullying. Seems to be the excuse dujoir lately.

It's very simple. When you're asked why you lost you respond, "because we scored fewer goals"!

You know what I'm tired of? I'm tired of the Oilers picking first overall. New rule, no team no matter how bad they are can pick first overall more than 2 years in a row. Let's call it the Oilers Clause.

A few goals and maybe a little defense might help.

MacTavishs' press conference didn't drum up a lot of optimism for the future either.
