In Oilers news, the Oil have now officially clinched dead last (thus the picture above). The skunk is symbolic of how smelly this season was. But hey.. Taylor Hall, bitches! (maybe)

In other news, the baby-Oilers (Springfield Falcons) have signed a UofA winger, according to the Edmonton Sun:

Former U of A Golden Bears winger Jesse Gimblett — who was dominant in the CIS nationals on the weekend — signed an AHL deal with the Springfield Falcons. He had 21 goals and 22 assists in 39 games with the Bears.

PRE-GAME RANT

After losing to St. Louis, on Sunday, the Oilers are now one point away from sealing up 30th place. That means that if the Leafs gain one point in their final six games or the Oilers do not completely run the table, the Oilers will be guaranteed dead last in the league. We now sit 14 points behind 29th place Toronto (jebus), and there are only 14 points available since we have 7 games remaining in the season. Not that there was any doubt, but this should really put everyone’s mind at ease that even if we do run the table, chances are we’re going to get one of the top 2 picks.

So, the Oil are currently cold, having lost their last 2. The Red Wings are red hot, with 5 straight wins. Their last lost happened to be at the hands of the mighty Edmonton Oilers in the shootout on March 19th. Could the Oil surprise again?

Prediction: Reality sets in.. 5-2 Red Wings, Oilers officially hit rock bottom and seal 30th.

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers are coming off a loss to the Ducks and the Blues last played against the Kings on thursday taking the game 3-1.  The Blues are in the same boat as the Ducks.  That ferry boat heading over the ocean to an island for people to play golf on.  They’re still not mathematically out, but it would take some luck for them to get in.  They have struggled at home this year so this could be a close game today.  It looks like Gagner will resting the hip again, so likely not much changes in the line up.  Maybe that’s why no one is posting info about it anywhere.  I for one will be disappointed to not see Mason’s playoff beard this year.

Ducks…  An outfit once owned and operated by some Mickey Mouse operation.  Sound familiar?  ­The Ducks have lost Getzlaf with the same ankle issue that nearly clipped his wings for an Olympic appearance and James ‘Forearm Shiver’ Wisniewski is still suspended.  Down, but not out, yet with only 9 games remaining and trailing 8th by 11 points the Ducks will be dusting off the golf clubs around the same time as the boys in blue.  This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since the swapping of Lubo for Whitney, and with the Oil on a 3 game tear and not a care in the world, I’m pretty sure we can run our win streak up to 4 against the Mighty Quacks.  Patty O has been cleared to play and Gagner left practice early, so maybe they’ll trade spots tonight.  As for Petry making an appearance tonight, no word yet.

Oilers sign Petry to entry level NHL deal

By , March 26, 2010 11:05 am

As per the Oil’s official e-mail:

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have signed Jeff Petry to a two-year NHL entry level contract.
Petry, the Oilers 1st choice, 45th overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, recently completed his third season with Michigan State University of the CCHA.

I’m going to assume that this means we may see him in Oilers silks as soon as tonight! But I’m not sure if that is the case. This has been rumored for a bit though, that we’d see him play either in Springfield or with Edmonton after MSU’s season was done.
