Well these will be the standings until the beginning of March, however I will continue to use the space to highlight what has happened at the Olympics as well (and not just hockey).
The Oilers…well, they are just not that good. Its going to be a super interesting right after the Olympic break, but I am starting to think that we might not see that much movement from the Oil. Not because Tambellini isn’t trying, I just think the other GM’s are vultures and want picks from us to take bad contracts. Pisani and Comrie are good to go for picks, Souray, Cogliano, Grebber Grabber are all mentioned as well and they should land prospects and picks, but I don’t see the others going away. Now the off season might be a different story, but thats just what I see.
Now on to the standings, and keep reading for a recap of the Canadian Olympic results to date.

Olympic Primer... OK, lame joke..
Here’s a few bits of information you’ll need to know about this year’s Olympic Hockey games.
For starters, we already covered the Olympic hockey roster for the major teams. Those are available here: 2010 Olympic Hockey Rosters.
Here is some more info useful to you folks…
Note: These times are local times – as in PST (if you live in Edmonton, add an hour to the time). For MST, add one hour, CST add 2 hours, EST, add 3 hours. For anywhere else, follow this simple equation: # of hours to add = the product of all letters in your countries name (where A=1,… Z=26, etc), divided by the population of your country, multiplied by 23/9, minus the sum of the last 10 Lotto 6/49 draws.

GDT - Edmonton Oilers vs. Anaheim Ducks
Well first off, Happy Valentine’s Day to all you non-single folks. Today is an earlier game, with a 5:00PM start. It’ll be on PPV and I may end up missing this one. The Oilers are fresh off a pretty exciting shootout win vs. the Kings, after a pretty bleak road trip. The Ducks are coming off of a 3-1 loss to Calgary yesterday, but have won 5 of their last 7 games, however. These two teams met on the Oilers recent road trip, with the Ducks winning it by a score of 3-2. I only caught part of the 3rd period for this game last time around, so I’m not too sure how close the score really was. However, tonight I’ll pick a win.
Prediction: 4-3 Oilers

Here are the corresponding locations (note they COULD change, as I’ve seen before):
1 – Steve Staios and Marc Pouliot
2 – Denis Grebeshkov and Gilbert Brule
3 – Tom Gilbert and Robert Nilsson
4 – Ladislav Smid and Patrick O’Sullivan

So any of you folks going? If so, who do you plan on going to?
GDT - Edmonton Oilers at Los Angeles Kings
Well I missed last night’s game, but it looked like the Moreau show… were there any Moreau to the Kings rumors? We’ll have to see who showcases themselves tonight.
So the Oilers are continuing their fall for hall on this road trip so far, with a perfect 0-4. The Kings lost their last game (4-2 to Anaheim on Monday), but you’re allowed to lose 1 or 2 when you’ve won the previous 9. Hold on to your butts, it’s going to get rough. Another loss tonight, I would think.
Prediction: 6-1 Kings
