"Two weeks ago, an NHL general manager said that netminder Marc-Andre Fleury was the most important Penguin because he covered for a team that gave up a lot of chances."

From point 13 from Elliote Friedman's latest "30 Thoughts". Not Malkin, not Crosby, not Letang, Staal, or Neal. An actual GM thinks Fleury is the most important Penguin. Unbelievable.

Steve Tambellini has known Renney for at least fifteen years, since Renney was with the Canucks. The Oilers have had literally months to make up their minds in terms of what to do wtih Renney. It is bizarre that they now need to meet and evaluate what to do.

That's Tyler Dellow's take on the "evaluation" line in regards to Tom Renney's status.

Of course, if you’re interested in seeing the Oilers win some day, this is just another piece of evidence that the management team is not a particularly detail oriented group.

That's from Tyler Dellow's Holy Mackerel! We've recalled a lot of guys from OKC article up at his site now. As expected, the local media was quick to sweep it under the rug calling this no big deal. But remember, this is the management group that had no idea Gilbert Brule had to clear waivers and had no idea what the signing date was for Finnish draftee Teemu Hartikainen. It's yet another example of the gross incompetence of the Steve Tambellini-led front office. But hey, the Oilers have another lottery pick, so ...BAM! Stanley Cup.

"He's an NHL player.Would be great if he came to camp next year.Hope he contributes to our team but if not some other team." Renney on Omark

Mark Spector interviewed Michael Arace of a Columbus Dispatch this afternoon to discuss a potential Rick Nash trade. The above quote comes from the end of the interview and was Mr. Spector's reaction to the idea that the Blue Jackets would allow Scott Howson, the man who constructed a team that looks like a lock to finish 30th this season, to make a trade involving Rick Nash. It's interesting that he sees no similarities to the situation in Edmonton where the team is on the verge of a third consecutive lottery pick but he's fine with allowing the Steve Tambellini, the man responsible for all three of those teams, to continue running the show. The podcast cast be found here, the interview in question ends with 21:40 remaining.

"We have a much better team than the results and standings show, and we know that."

I WANT to believe that there is some secret awesome plan going on, and this rebuild is going to be all-of-a-sudden very fruitful, even though all evidence is to the contrary. If Tyler’s right (again – sure seems like he is…) then this will all culminate in having to re-start this rebuild, and sit through more years of fan pain. I think I’d rather keep taking the soma and believing it’s all good. The hope seems better than the reality.

Firley, a commenter at mc79hockey finally took the red pill last night.

Eager is emotional and unpredictable and we need some of that.

That sort of consistency in two separate interviews sends a clear message: Devan Dubnyk won’t have to wait for Khabibulin to falter this season. While Tambellini makes no assurances about how the games are to be split between the two goaltenders, it seems probable that Tambellini has come to the same conclusion the vast majority of the fans have: Devan Dubnyk should be the Oilers’ starting goaltender out of the gate.

That's Jonathan Willis at the Cult of Hockey discussing Steve Tambellini's consistent message about the Oilers' goaltenders.

Well, the Oilers finally started to get ‘actual’ NHL players, but the problem is that not enough of them are NHL players or they play the wrong position.

Not everyone is ecstatic about the Oilers' off-season. BCB from Bringing Back The Glory takes Steve Tambellini to task for the off-season and isn't happy about it.
