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.

Monday Morning Standings

By , March 16, 2010 11:16 am

Just a placeholder till I find a better picture...

Well, I forgot last week, and am a day late this week, but here they are…the Monday Morning Standings!

Taking a look at the standings, a couple things surprise me.

  • Kings and Coyotes – I am going to be cheering for these teams come the post season (I still think it will be a hawks – caps final, with the hawks overcoming shitty goaltending to win it).  I think its awesome that these teams have had the season that they have.  (Same with the avs but I’m not going to cheer for them)
  • Caps are feasting on the shitty Southeast div.
  • Red Wings on the bubble.  I remember when they used to be real shitty, but its been so long that I assumed that they wouldn’t get back to that point.  Sure injuries have played a part, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were on the bubble again next year (that said, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Coyotes come back to earth next year, although I’ve been waiting for it to happen all year and seems they are still going  strong – We should have waited a couple months and picked up Tippet once he became free).
  • Based on how much I hear about the Isles I figured they would be higher in the standings…too bad Schremp didn’t push them over the top.
  • Also, based on the crap I hear from Flames fans, I’m surprised that they are not higher in the standings.  If they miss the playoffs I’m going to laugh.
  • And the Oilers suck.  Lets hope for a less shitty next season.  Worse than the dark ages…I never thought I’d ever say that.  It takes a special kind of suck to get to this point.

Also, we changed a plug-in to make the site easier to view on your favorite mobile device. If you hate it let us know.

Oilers assign Jordan Eberle to the Springfield Falcons of the AHL

By , March 16, 2010 9:07 am

Pretty anti-climatic… very expected, but here is the write up from the official Oilers e-mail:

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have assigned forward Jordan Eberle from the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League.

Eberle, the Oilers first round draft choice (22nd overall) in 2008, finished the 2009-10 WHL season with 106 points (50G, 56A) in 57 games with the Pats. He led all WHL skaters in goals scored (50) and ranked second in the overall scoring race with 106 points. The 19-year-old also had the highest points-per-game average with 1.86 points per game and was named the WHL’s Player-of-the-Month for September and October.

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, I didn’t get to watch much of last nights game. I did see Peckham take several jersey punches before body slamming Boll though. Was good to see the linesman snuggling up with Boll afterwards. Seriously though, that was potentially pretty dangerous, with Boll hitting his head on the ice like that.

Anyways, on to tonight’s game. The Oilers take on the Wild in St. Paul. The Oilers are currently on a two game losing streak and are 3-6-1 in their last 10. The Wild have won their last 2 and are 4-4-2. The last time these two teams faced (11 days ago), Deslauriers stole one with a 2-1 shootout win. Look for him to play again tonight and hopefully have a similar game.

I’ll call a 3-2 win for the Oil on this one. Have I been right yet this season? I think my record is about 1-68… and I complain about the Oilers’ poor record!

PRE-GAME RANT

Game day and the Oilers are taking on the Nashless Columbus BlueJackets.  The Oilers are coming off a loss against the lowly Leafs, where JDD was chased from the net giving up 5 goals in 2 periods.  They have lost 3 in a row now giving up 14 goals in regulation, so we’ll need some J-Lo booty(firm back end) to get through tonight.  The Jackets are coming off a 5-1 loss to the Blues and are without their Olympic gold medalist Rick Nash.  The Oilers are officially out of the post season and the BlueJackets have little more than a hope and a prayer.

May the best team win?
