They are going to have to put McDavids skates on backwards for Neil to have any chance of keeping up with him. Even then it would be touch and go

By the way some Shames fans are talking they have been winning the cup every year.

Everyone watch out for those JUGGERNAUT Shames!

Since the lockout they have,

Missed the playoffs 8 times.

Won ONE playoff series, their best playoff performance in a few decades.

Been bounced in the first round 4 times.

Been swept from the first round twice.

Maybe try comparing yourselves to a higher caliber of team than a bottom feeder.

Guess what, YOU SUCK TOO!!

Only most Oil fans will admit we suck, yet somehow the Shames are a superior team, when compared to a bottom feeder.

Nobody is scared of the Shames come playoff time, FACT! (if they make them, see above stats) I'm sure if you asked every team in the post season who they would want to play and I GUARANTEE to only answer would be the Shames.

Guaranteed win, every time. Last year the pedestrian Avs made them look like a pee-wee team, and that was after the Shames best regular season since??

Should of spent that money replacing that sad joke of a football stadium. At least the Stamps know how to win and don't fold like cheap lawn chairs when it counts the most. Well, at least half the time they don't.

Cue triggered Shames fans in 3,, 2,,

Oiler fans that talk crap make me laugh. We are in no position to talk crap the team stinks. The management stunk for years and the city is on the top 3 of teams players donít want to be traded to.

Iíve been an Oilers fan for a long time. But itís been tiring. Facts are facts.

I think we all know thw Oilers can not play well again until the Flames at least try to catch up in Cup wins. How is it that a team that has only won one lousy cup egts such high praise. When you lok at actual facts the Flames are really only ahead of about 6 teams and they are all newer teams then the Flames are. The Oilers have 5 Cups and are also a newer team then the Flames are. I am talking the teams history in the NHL. Even if the Flames were to win the Cup this year they would still have less then half as many as the Oilers.

At least try looking up the actual facts before spouting off, might make you seem a little more credible. There are currently 10 teams out of 30 that have never won a cup and 5 that have only won once. Cup wins that came before the modern era are nothing spectacular especially since your team has been the literal laughing stock of the league for the last decade.

Default 18-19 Soilers season

I wonder how many Soiler fans realize that last season was the Soilers 4th BEST in the last 20 seasons. Kinds puts things in perspective.

These are the factual things that make it tough to root for them. Hopefully new management will breed some better things within the club. That idiot Nicholson is still their though and still wields a big stick however. Which really sucks..

You do know we are in a whole new century?
You do know that the last win was 30 years ago?
Do you know how long 30 years is?
Holy man, take the #99 poster off the door in your bathroom and quit self loving to it. Times have changed and life has beyond moved forward here. Sorry you are caught in a Edmonton time warp. Can we help?

Yes I agree 30 yrs is a long time for the Flames to go without a cup. Next year the Oilers will hit that milestone as well. Both teams suck! Itís official.

Jungleboy the Flames fans seem to forget that their team has sucked longer then ours. Who went to the Cup final last I bet it was not the Flames an actual fact. If history serves me right it was the Oilers. I apologise for not knowing the actual number of teams that have never won a Cup my bad. It doesn't matter though even if our team sucks they still have 5 times as money Cup wins as the Flames.

Is there a time limit Oiler fans are allowed to fall back on? Last year? Ok last year..... where both teams had zero wins in the playoffs....
3 years? Oilers losing conference finals in 7 games?
Whatís the memory lane time limit?

Shames fans are jealous that us Oiler fans and the Oilers organization has such a rich and rewarding history. The Shames have nothing worthwhile remembering or recalling for that matter.

I wonder if their new arena when built will act as a catch basin for the downtown core!

Training camp will be interesting. A lot of young D pushing for a spot. Will Tyler Benson make it up front? Always interested to see how things shake out and to get going.

So the rumour mill was that Brassard was coming and then he signs with the Isle. I see Maroon has signed with Tampa and Upshall has a PTO contract with Dallas this morning. Wonder what free agents the Oil will be able to attract if any? 3rd line center is still in play..

Yeah I canít see Marleau coming to this market unless he doesnít mind leaving his wife and kids. Canít see her uprooting for what would amount to a year. Heís 39 and pretty much done. Iím pretty sure Marleau wants to go to a contender his final year...
