Xmas Blues

It's that time of year again when everyone puts on a face of outer happiness while inside they're depressed about having to deal with the whole holiday season. The fact that the Oilers have transitioned from a young team over-achieving on every level to a young team drowning in sub-mediocrity suck doesn't help the collective spirits of the city. So, what do we do to release our pent up melancholy? We bitch. And boy, as the pages of the Oilosphere would attest, we are good at bitching. We might even be better at bitching than drinking. Well, it would be close and the two go together so well.

Lets cut to the chase. Across the myriad of gripes, complaints, accusations: what has been the single worst mistake of coaching/management since the season began? That's right, I'm asking what single decision is most responsible for keeping out faces pressed firmly down in the excrement of a slumping team? Please feel free to fully expand and explain your bitchin' below.
