Instead of a passionate response after Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres, what a nationally televised audience saw instead was as big a debacle as this once-proud joke of a franchise has served up in years.

At least the end came quickly.

The Flames scored four goals in 3:05 to force the Oilers to play the last 30 minutes with their pants down.

After going 10-4-3, the Oilers, in a span of 72 hours, look like a total hopeless, heartless mess.

It seems like a pointless argument - Whose Rebuild is Better - when one team is 29th and the other is 26th, but it's one that fans of the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames love to try and make.
