Not since General Zod from Superman 2 have we seen deadlier eye lasers. Kneel before Tom!
Today in practice, apparently Renney blew up on Hemsky. Details on all of this are sketchy still, but according to Tencer’s twitter: “Would be inappropriate to relay what Renney said to Hemsky during practice; underlying message was: ‘pls work a bit harder'”.
Quinn was asked about it in an interview and had this to say (quote taken from Oilers Nation): Continue reading 'Renney snaps, loses it, and headfakes Hemsky with a complicated practice drill'»
Boom, head shot!
Ok, this is obviously inspired by the open ice hit Ethan Moreau received in the 2nd period of last night’s game vs. Colorado Avalanche. Moreau was skating through the neutral zone with chasing down a long pass, with his head down. Along comes Ryan Wilson who puts his arms up and levels Moreau while he is vulnerable.

Failure - When your best just isnt good enough
Well, we’re about a quarter of the way into the season, and it’s time to take a look at where this team stands. Steve-O, Trogdor and Racki will do a quarterly report card for the team to show how we feel each individual player is doing, the coaching staff, management, and the team as a whole. We chose 20 games in as the cut off. So any games following that point are not included in our rankings or stats.
Without further ado.. the first quarter report card for the 2009/10 season: Continue reading 'Oilers 2009/10 – Quarter 1 Report'»
Not a fan of logo's with any swooshes...not easy at all.
Busy day at work here for all of us, so this will have to be quick. And I regret pushing that monster post down along with that pretty face, but its gameday so what are we to do?
We need to win. Oilers win 3-1.
Now to Racki’s stats: Continue reading 'GDT – Oilers 6, Avalanche 4 – Nov 18, 2009 @ 7:00PM – TSN – Game 22'»
Dustin Penner: A+
This guy seriously looks like a man on a mission. I always knew he had great hands, but he’s even using is body a lot more to do that ‘Eric Cole drive’. I like how he’s given the “A” when given the chance, and he’s making a very strong case to keep it with his play. His defensive game has always been great, so I don’t know why MacT roasted him a lot even last year when he was leading the team in +/-.
Ales Hemsky: A-
He’s been the same Hemsky as always, except this time he isn’t leading the team in scoring. Great vision, frustrating when he skates right into defenders. I’ve kinda gotten used to that, but it would be nice to see him take his game to a safer level. Reminds me kind of like Alex Kovalev, fun to watch when he’s hot, but extremely frustrating when he’s cold.
