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.

    French judge gives Fillipula a 9.5…

  2. Trogdor says:

    No make up call?

  3. Racki says:

    Nabokov is such a seive. :lol:

    I have him in the pool that some of us here are in, and he’s always allowing 3 or more goals a game, it seems. OK, obviously this is an exaggeration because somehow he still has a great average and sv%… but I find he’s not having enough big games for my liking. :P

  4. Trogdor says:

    And Moreau misses the barn…

  5. Trogdor says:

    For Steve-O’s benefit, that was some cool head maneuvering under pressure by Gilbert.

  6. LateNightOilFan says:

    DD doing the righty – lefty pad saves there!

    Edit – or was that lefty-righty?

  7. Ktown says:

    Big Glove by Big Easy…

  8. Racki says:

    LateNightOilFan: DD doing the righty – lefty pad saves there!Edit – or was that lefty-righty?

    I believe you were right the first time ;)

  9. Ktown says:

    I don’t know what Kronwall was wondering about – I saw that from my seat here in the peanut gallery…

  10. LateNightOilFan says:

    Linesman looked like a MLB umpire there…

  11. Ktown says:

    Man, Peckham has been all over Bertuzzi tonight. Hard-nosed, tough play. Well done.

  12. DropIt says:

    Racki: He didn’t do much this year, but he had a pretty epic shift last year in which he hammered someone, then took out some more rage on Clutterbuck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDG96TT2pfA

    Thats what we have been waiting for… a few good checks, and smart defensively… i cant wait until next season when we can get a full dose of his leadership.
    Also, im shocked he hasnt had any goals, he has been firing from everywhere and has come close to scoring a number of times for us…
    as time wears on, im getting more and more happy with this trade.

  13. LateNightOilFan says:

    Crunch time.

  14. Racki says:

    Oh btw, did anyone hear Whitney’s comments after the last game? He had some words that basically ripped on the team, saying that they give up after one goals against and implied they need to stop feeling sorry for themselves.

    “we say woe is me, and that’s a loser attitude”

  15. Trogdor says:

    Wow! Replay?

  16. Racki says:

    ohhh NOOOOOO… come on, let the time be expired…

  17. LateNightOilFan says:

    Ohhhhh-does that count?

  18. DropIt says:

    OH MY GOD!

    NOT IN… PLEEEEEEAAAASSSEEEE

  19. Ktown says:

    Oh boy… let’s see… heartbreaker

  20. DropIt says:

    GOD DAMN EDMONTON!

    FUCKIN AARON JOHNSON

  21. Trogdor says:

    Aww… Dubs needs a doob…

  22. LateNightOilFan says:

    Oh damn. That is going to count.

  23. Racki says:

    Sorry, but typical fucking Oilers. Feel sorry for DD.

  24. Ktown says:

    Man… I feel so bad for Dubnyk. This kid is snake bit, and the team isn’t helping him one bit…

    Oh, man – I’m obviously a noob to these boards… Glad somebody else was dropping the f-bombs for me. I screamed it out here…

  25. Bostonoiler says:

    Sigh Typical Oilers……I fell awful for Dubynk though, poor bastard deserves a win. I want 2 points bad for him tonight

  26. Trogdor says:

    .2 seconds away from his first NHL victory. I need a drink… Peckham needs an OT goal to bring back the happy vibe.

  27. MetalOil says:

    Awe Pecks. Its a shame but that puts a dent in otherwise rock solid game.

  28. gr8one says:

    fucking brutal.

    man, poor DD.

    Dropit…how ya like being an Oil fan?

    FFS!!!

  29. Trogdor says:

    Wings have a lot of talent. We need to play D and get to a shootout.

  30. Racki says:

    Ktown: Man… I feel so bad for Dubnyk. This kid is snake bit, and the team isn’t helping him one bit…Oh, man – I’m obviously a noob to these boards… Glad somebody else was dropping the f-bombs for me…

    Yah, pretty much anything (within reason) is fine here.

  31. DropIt says:

    gr8one: fucking brutal.man, poor DD.Dropit…how ya like being an Oil fan? FFS!!!

    Im used to it… seems like ive been one since january

  32. LateNightOilFan says:

    I still can’t believe we’re watching OT.

  33. MetalOil says:

    so how many time have we let in a goal in the last minute of a period this season??? 15 or so would be my guess, maybe more.

  34. Ktown says:

    Come on – I know it’s OT, but that was a mugging…

  35. gr8one says:

    The hockey god’s frown on passive play, and that is always what gets this team snake bit.

  36. Racki says:

    We didn’t get a single PP this game, did we?

  37. Ktown says:

    Racki: We didn’t get a single PP this game, did we?

    Not for lack of opportunity… kinda brutal.

  38. Racki says:

    Nice rush by Whitney there. I am liking him more and more.

  39. Bostonoiler says:

    going to the shootout now boys! COME ON DD!!!

  40. MetalOil says:

    Racki: Nice rush by Whitney there. I am liking him more and more.

    He plays an extremely smart game.

  41. Ktown says:

    I was pretty torqued about losing Visnovsky for Whitney, but he looks pretty solid. I agree with you Racki – it’s looking better and better.

    Let’s go Oil… big Shootout win now…

  42. Racki says:

    Lets go doobie!

  43. Racki says:

    Pull doobie and put Morrison in! *sinister look*

  44. Bostonoiler says:

    MetalOil: He plays an extremely smart game.

    Love Johnson and Whitney

    POTS!

  45. Ktown says:

    YES!! Nice deke, Potulny!

  46. LateNightOilFan says:

    That went in so fast I didn’t see it.

  47. Racki says:

    Ktown: I was pretty torqued about losing Visnovsky for Whitney, but he looks pretty solid. I agree with you Racki – it’s looking better and better.Let’s go Oil… big Shootout win now…

    Agreed on all of that. Making me feel a little better about losing Vis.

  48. LateNightOilFan says:

    Post!

  49. MetalOil says:

    Finally Dubes get a little luck.
