I guess the saying is true, you can't teach old dogs (McLellan, Chiarelli) new tricks.

They didn't get rid of these players when they had the chance years ago and were warned extensively their +/- was terrible: Letestu -11, Klefbom -9, Caggiula -8, Benning -3.

Sheer incompetency!

The solution is simple.

Maroon-McD-Drais
Lucic-RNH-Pulju
Cammalleri-Strome-Yamamoto
Benson/Slepy-Khaira-Kassian

Nurse-Larsson
Auvitu-Sekera
Russell-Gryba

Trade for someone who can take Sekera's spot now. When Sekera is back the new defenseman can replace Gryba.

I am sure with Cammalleri's old age and -50 career, he will be a dud.

The dumb mistakes Talbot has been making has been killing the Oilers, putting the Oilers down 1 goal at the outset. Oilers are playing from behind because of Talbot.
