Tonight won't be remembered as another Oilers loss to the San Jose Sharks. Nope.
Instead, tonight will be remembered as the point where the pot boiled over. The Coach, the players...THE TEAM...has finally figured out there is something seriously wrong.
A few quotes from the post-game, via Twitter:
Tom Renney: "Doesn't take many for wrong approach, the wrong attitude, wrong give a sh*t to...

from David Pollak of the Mercury News, The Sharks are in unfamiliar territory. Their 75 points are fewer than any Sharks team has accumulated in 67 games since Wilson took over in 2003. A year ago at this point the team had 84 points; two years ago, 96.
The Sharks have had to deal with injuries to top players such as Logan Couture, Ryane Clowe and Douglas Murray during the stretch...
While the San Jose Sharks are on the outside, looking in, at the 9th seed with 77 points — one below the 8th Colorado Avalanche – one may ask GM Doug Wilson, was it all worth it?
Dany Heatley, right, and Devin Setoguchi have proven to be assets for the Wild this season. Would they have made a difference with San Jose this year?
Were the rebuilding deals he made during...
The San Jose Sharks have broken their five game losing streak with a win over the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 backed by two power play goals.
It was a huge two points for the Sharks who are fighting for their playoff lives with Colorado, LA, Phoenix, and Calgary who they face-off against tomorrow night.
This was a game where the Sharks won more battles than they lost and had good energy led by...
Logan Couture scored a tiebreaking goal early in the third period and the San Jose Sharks snapped a five-game slide with a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night.
Joe Thornton had a goal and an assist while Torrey Mitchell also scored for the Sharks (34-25-9), who are trying to get back into the playoff picture after losing 11 of their previous 13 games.
Tom Renney, hit the bricks. Kevin Lowe, you're fired. Steve Tambellini, you are the weakest link. Everyone get out. It's time to say hello to Team Cloutier. This is my team now, and it's about time someone stepped in to fix things.
A few rules before I get into this Sunday-inspired daydream:
1. I'm assuming the Oilers will finish 29th in the NHL and the draft...
Back in March of 2010, the Sharks were trying to snap their worst losing streak in 13 years. They had lost five in a row and were preparing to face the Oilers. They lost that game.

It has been a disastrous last month for the San Jose Sharks, who are tumbling down the Western Conference standings.
The lowly Edmonton Oilers have already contributed to their woes.
The Sharks, the NHL's only winless team in March, again try to break out of their funk and avenge last week's home loss to the Oilers on Monday night at Rexall Place.
San Jose (33-25-9) has...
The Sharks came away with one point in Calgary after Matt Stajan scored in overtime with 0:40 seconds remaining in a 3-2 win to end the Sharks four game road trip.
âOne is better than noneâ quipped Todd McLellan after the game âbut thatâs not what our goal was. I thought we played well enough to get two but weâre not going home with them.â
Ten points separated the Calgary Flames from the San Jose Sharks at the beginning of February, though Calgary's recent surge has coincided with San Jose's swoon to close the gap.
The Flames host the Sharks in a crucial Western Conference matchup Tuesday night with both teams looking to get back into the playoff picture.
Calgary (32-25-12) has won three straight games including...
Yes!YESSSSSSSSSSSSS! 9th never tasted so good!Ok, ok, I know, it's really nothing to be excited over. The Sharks are still out of the top 8 spots in the West and they still have a helluva hill to climb if they want to make it back in, and STAY back in playoff contention, but they HAD to get this win. There's not time to fart around anymore. You win, or the season ends, and...
“We have a few people who should look in the mirror. You’re Edmonton Oilers ... you’re a millionaire. Suck it up and play hockey.”
