Damn I hate these moments…

This has nothing to do with this article, but it made me laugh..

This has nothing to do with this article, but it made me laugh..

That would be admitting I was wrong about a player. Well, partially. I was wrong in wanting to see Tom Gilbert traded because he was playing piss poor in the defensive zone. But he’s won me over again lately (mostly due to elevating the part of his game I already liked).

Those of you that have followed what I say long enough know that I was a big Tom Gilbert fan in his first year, and we had a bit of a falling out in recent times (hah). That has had a lot to do with his defensive play in the past, more so than his offensive play. I’ve always felt like he’s been solid in the offensive zone. I still am a bit unsure about Continue reading 'Damn I hate these moments…'»

Draft Watch: Hall vs. Seguin – Game 4

By , April 8, 2010 8:50 am

Well, the series wrapped up with Windsor sweeping the series on a 3-2 win in game 4. This time around, Hall was held pointless and remained even. Ditto for Seguin, while Fowler had 1 assist and was +1.

Thanks to gr8one for bringing up a couple of recent articles on the draftees:
Coming Down the Pipe – Seguin Injured? Red Flags for Hall?
Bob McKenzie – Examining the Logic Behind Central Scouting Rankings
Also, the Edmonton Sun has an article on why Seguin topped the list.

Just a reminder that the draft lottery is settled this coming Tuesday (April 13, 2010).

We will likely prep a collection of draft info for around that time.

Name G A PTS +/-
Taylor Hall 3 3 6 +5
Tyler Seguin 0 0 0 -6
Cam Fowler 0 3 3 0

PRE-GAME RANT

Before we start in on Oilers talk, let’s just kick this GDT off by giving thanks to the hockey gods for the Flames being eliminated from making the playoffs last night. Last place in the league doesn’t sound so bad after all, does it? Welcome to Oilers purgatory, Calgary. That’s that place where you claw at 8th place in hopes of making it in, but often end up just missing it (and thus getting a crummy pick in the draft). I don’t think they’re quite at the “blow up the team” stage like we were yet, but I think the future looks a bit brighter for the Oil (for once). Sadly, you have to hit rock bottom in this league to be able to build a strong team sometimes.

Anyways, the Oilers play their last home game tonight vs. the Avalanche at 7:30 on Sportsnet West tonight. The Avalanche clinched their playoff spot last night with a squeaker over Vancouver in a 3-2 win. The Avalanche have won just 3 of their last 10 games (3-6-1). The Oilers came off a pretty good performance vs. the Wild on Monday in which they won 4-1. They are 4-5-1 in their last 10 games. Dustin Penner scored his 30th and 31st of the season and looks to add on to it, saying he will be aiming for 35. What a great season for him it has been, and a bitter sweet one, in his own words.

The Avalanche are 3-2-0 in the season series vs. Edmonton so far, including the last two wins (3-0 February 6th and 6-0 January 18th). However, I’m going to predict a win for the Oilers tonight.

Prediction: 5-4 Oilers. Continue reading 'GDT – Edmonton Oilers 5, Colorado Avalanche 4 (OT) – April 7, 2010 @ 7:30 PM – SNET – Game 80'»

Monday Morning Standings

By , April 6, 2010 2:41 pm

She hopes we draft Hall, I'm starting to agree with her.

Well, I asked Racki to include the complete OHL, WHL and QMJHL playoff lists for stats leaders, however I just looked into it and realized why he doesn’t want to do that…it looks as though it sucks.  So I did it.  It did suck.  Anyways, its interesting to see a bunch of undrafted kids creeping up in the standings.

Also the standings are getting interesting…lets go Avs and knock the Flamers out.

Further, like many probably, I am starting to get off of the Seguin bandwagon, and hitching up to Hall’s as he is dominating, and we need a left winger anyways (although if he replaces Penner, just watch Penner’s stats drop), although we need some centers too (and goalies).
