On Monday, Edmonton Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli made it known he has no intentions of firing head coach Todd McLellan.

That being said, the team has lost six of its last seven games, and, after reaching the second round of the postseason last year, sit eight points out of the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

The Oilers also sit 22nd in goals per game, are tied for 26th in goals against per game, have the 24th-best power play, and rank dead last in penalty-kill proficiency.

Something needs to be done in Edmonton if the team is to turn things around. Is Chiarelli making the right choice by keeping McLellan?
