The Edmonton Oilers were expected to be a genuine threat in the Western Conference this season, but early on, the team has struggled, with fans worried about a potential wasted season.

Not so fast

In their past seven games, the Oilers have come away with just three points, leaving them at seventh position in the Pacific Division as November gets rolling.
For some fans, it's time to hit the panic button and make some big news, but NHLer turned media personality Paul Bissonette says not so fast on knee-jerk reactions for the organization.
What's the fanbase thinking right now on this Oiler stuff??? Way to early to start thinking coaching change. Only way I'd start considering that is if they lose Monday to the Canucks for the 3rd time this season and then somehow lose to the San Jose Sharks Thursday. Not happening.

Time to turn it around

However, he believes that if the team fall to Vancouver for a third time and San Jose for their first win of the season, it would be time to hit the panic button, but for now, there's plenty of time to turn things around.
There's some calling for Jay Woodcroft's job while others are desperately asking for a new goaltender or an improvement on the blue line, and if they can figure out improvements at those two spots, there's no doubting this team can bounce back.
