I hope that little shit makes the team...means they don't have enough players to actually make a full NHL team

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, I’m stupid busy at work, and my guess is that Racki is as well, so here is a quick GDT.

Pre-game topic of discussion: Who will lead the team this year in points? In PIMs? Goals? Assists? Plus/Minus? Broken Sticks?

Please don't sue us, Hanson Brothers.

Please don't sue us, Hanson Brothers.

Don’t you just love it when a character in a movie says the name of the movie in the movie itself? Introducing a new segment at Putting on the Foil entitled…. well, Putting on the Foil. In this segment, Steve-O, and I (and sometimes Trogdor) have a tête-à-tête (or tête-à-tête-à-tête) on a certain issue. In today’s “Putting On The Foil”, we discuss who we think will make the October 3rd lineup (barring any injuries). Of course, like any other post, we encourage you to have your say in the comments section. Continue reading 'Putting On The Foil – Bold Line Up Predictions'»

Oiler Cuts

The Edmonton Oilers assigned eight players today (four defencemen and four forwards), leaving their training camp roster at 34 players.  What does this mean?  The next game I’m going to will have more regulars in the line up.  Yipee!

Assigned to Springfield (AHL): Ryan O’Marra (RW), Alex Plante (D), Jake Taylor (D) and Bryan Young (D)

Assigned to Saskatoon (WHL): Milan Kytnar (C)

Placed on waivers for the purpose of assignment: Dean Arsene (D), Ryan Potulny (C) and Chris Minard (LW).

(Edit by Racki…) That leaves us with:

GDT: Oilers 1, Islanders 3…in Saskatchewan – Pre-season Game 5 – 2009-09-20

Pretty proud of that islanders logo

UPDATED: Fight video with Steve MacIntyre and Joel Rechlicz added.
PRE-GAME RANT:
Well, the Esks are currently playing (and currently are winning 14-7), the Seahawks are currently playing (and losing 10-3…boooo), OU demolished a no-name school yesterday (yay), USC got upset by Washington in a great game and the UFC was a so-so event.

Add that all in with the hockey and I am almost all sports out for the weekend. Nevermind the fact that I have to put in about 5 hours of work in tonight.

But the Oilers are playing. And its the Islanders. So we should win. And Lubo is back! Tavares is playing his second game, while Biron is getting the start and Tambi’s boy is also playing tonight.

Oilers site also mentions that Kyntar is playing in Saskatoon partially due to the fact he played for the Blades last year. (Or so I gather)
