Now I know that there are many Oilers fans out there who are licking their wounds after being bounced from playoff contention by the mighty Calgary Flames. While I was certainly cheering the Oilers comeuppance for having the gall to beat us in our home rink just a few days earlier, I offer some words of comfort for the Oil.
While you may not be making the playoffs, you do have a team of exciting young players who will certainly be fun to watch next season. For all of your short-term worries, you can take solace in the fact that you are not nearly the worst team in the NHL.
No, that title, the awful and shameful distinction of being the absolute worst team in modern hockey history goes wholly and unequivocally to the Toronto Maple Leafs...
... and MacLean's goes a great job explaining why.
