PRE-GAME RANT

If a team falls in the standings and there is no one around to watch it, are we better off? I think so. I’ll probably watch the game though, being the die hard I am. But my game watching routine has gone from watching like a hawk at every play, and doing a lot of rewinding/replaying to having it on in the background while I do something else. Can we watch Eberle and the Falcons somehow? Perhaps that internet link that’s always floating around…

Anyways, enough of that tone. I’ll hope for wins from here on out. I demand entertainment. The #1 pick overall (lottery pick aside) has pretty much been settled. The Oilers are currently 13 points behind the Leafs with a mere 12 games left (the Oil do have a game in hand, to note). I can’t see them getting 13 goals in that time period, let alone 13 wins.. so it should be sealed. But nonetheless, I’d like to start seeing some wins here and a glimmer of hope for next year.

Prediction? Pierre McGuire will crush on Theo Peckham tonight, James Duthie will say something monumentally funny that the whole panel will laugh at and Craig MacTavish will feel sorry for the Oilers.

    Good to have you here, Ktown, and thanks for stopping by!

    Racki: Before any of you guys run off, thanks for stopping by! This is the best turn out we’ve had in a while..

    yeah…it was good to see others here again, I am here pretty much every game, it’s good to see the other die hards posting!

  23. MetalOil says:

    Have a good night all !!! till next time.

  24. Racki says:

    gr8one:
    yeah…it was good to see others here again, I am here pretty much every game, it’s good to see the other die hards posting!

    Yah, I haven’t been around much, myself.. so I’m as guilty as anyone. But not for lack of interest in the Oil. Just been busy lately.

  25. Trogdor says:

    I was all ready with varying pictures of tumbleweeds to post tonight, but definitely good to see enough people on tonight for some chatter. I’m heading out, goodnight all.

  26. LateNightOilFan says:

    Always enjoy the GDT’s here Racki, have been working some pretty long hours lately so I always seem to be joining late. But nice to be able to join in progress and nice to see more people posting tonight!

  27. gr8one says:

    Ktown: Nice to come out with a lot of you again – missed you back on the OMB. Good to be back among friendly company!Cheers, all!

    haha, yeah, good to have you here…you’re gonna love it, it’s like all the good things on the OMB but without the douchebaggery.

    and Racki, thanks for the heads up on that Whitney interview, I really liked his honesty and insight, especially the “loser attitude” comment…so true, and it makes me glad he’s an Oiler, I think Souray was about the only other Oiler I’ve heard say things like that so it’s good to know we have at least one other.

    Yup exactly, about Whitney. Very refreshing.

    Oh man… so true. I used to love going on the OMB, win or lose, but when they went over to the NHL.com integration, it seemed everybody and his uncle had something to say.

    I don’t mind banter with other teams’ fans, but it seems every second post is somebody trolling. Not to mention, just from one GDT, I can see that most of the posters that I enjoyed reading and bantering with are over here.

    Like I said, good to be back among good company and “old friends”.

  30. DropIt says:

    fuckin Oilers…

    had to give them the 1 point… I wouldnt be buying the Oilers dinner if i was any flames player

  31. zackman35 says:

    DropIt: fuckin Oilers…had to give them the 1 point… I wouldnt be buying the Oilers dinner if i was any Flamers player

    In all fairness DropIt, they were winning until there was .06 seconds left in the game. I still think what’s going to be sweeter is when Calgary doesn’t make the playoffs this year. :P

  32. Racki says:

    DropIt: fuckin Oilers…had to give them the 1 point… I wouldnt be buying the Oilers dinner if i was any Flamers player

    Welcome to Oilers hockey. They gave up a heck of a lot more than 1 point this year :P

    Its looking that way….
    but at least we swept a certain team this year :P

  34. DropIt says:

    well… congrats on Dubnyks first win in the NHL

    hopefully he can do it for real the next time the oilers play the wings

  35. mrgod2u says:

    Hey DropIt, if the Flames need the Oilers to beat teams for you to be in the playoffs then you probably don’t deserve to be there in the first place… Just sayin’ ;)

    Good to see a win for Dubnyk, Heck at this point all I am cheering for is to maintain last place, but not be “the Worst Team Since the Lockout” the fricking Flyers can keep that one all to themselves.

  36. LateNightOilFan says:

    Hey – Dubnyk received the NHL.com’s #1 star last night!

    Great to see him get recognized!

  37. MetalOil says:

    DropIt:

    Yep. Think about how out of the playoff race the Flames would be if they did not have the benefit of playing the Oil 6 times this year. :)
