Knocked him the f--- out!!!!

Knocked him the f--- out!!!!

Well, it’s the first game of the pre-season… this should be exciting. Or not… our team is laden with knuckle draggers and grinders, while the Canucks are icing a good team. But here are the lineups (per Jason Gregor at Oilers Nation).

Edmonton Oilers lineup

Alex Giroux/Shawn Horcoff/Jordan Eberle
Greg Stewart/Brad Moran/Zack Stortini
Colin McDonald/Ryan O’Marra/Teemu Hartikainen
Steve MacIntyre/Chris Vande Velde/Ben Ondrus

Ryan Whitney/Jeff Petry
Jim Vandermeer/Theo Peckham
Taylor Chorney/Jake Taylor

Devan Dubnyk
Martin Gerber

Vancouver Canucks lineup

D.Sedin/H. Sedin/Shirokov
Raymond/Kesler/Samuelsson
Schaefer/Bolduc/Desbiens
Volpatti/Perrault/Oreskovic

Hamhuis/Edler
Albers/Ehrhoff
L. Sweatt/Connaughton or
(Ellington-Ramsay)

Luongo
Schneider

Should be an ugly one. I like the looks of our top line, but beyond that it’s pretty weak. Come on Doobie….

POST GAME SUMMARY


Grit. Determination. Guys wanting to win an NHL spot. That’s what this game was about tonight. Great performance by the Oil tonight, highlight by solid goaltending by Gerber, a strong game by the top line, some offensive power from unlikely sources such as the 4th line, and a nice beatdown by O’Marra on Connaughton. The Oil dominated most of this game, on some great performances by the blue collar guys. I was pretty impressed with Giroux as well too.. he’s a guy I’ll be keeping a close eye on.

Also, do the Oilers have an incredibly fortunate offensive blueline trio of Whitney, Gilbert and Foster, or what? I expect some big points from them, so long as they stay healthy.

  2. John says:

    God damn it! I hate Telus.

  3. otto says:

    I hate being in Ontario. These games are so damn late, now.

  4. Trogdor says:

    I thought telus picked up sn1. I’m on bell but free nhl preview right now so I might luck out.

  5. Racki says:

    John… TELUS is carrying sportsnet one. Hunt the guide and tell us channel

  6. 3rdLineCentre says:

    @John. It’s playing on TELUS too. 677 (HD) and 106 (SD).

  7. Racki says:

    Great words from Horc on hall. I’m on road so can’t say but he said exactly what I want to hear . Will update later. Such a team guy, Horc is

  8. Trogdor says:

    Not on NHL network so I’m done for. Guess I’ll do some renos.

  9. John says:

    3rdLineCentre: @John. It’s playing on TELUS too. 677 (HD) and 106 (SD).

    Ya I have SN1 (106) but when I scroll through the guide @ 8PM is listed: MLB baseball :( I’ll tune in at 8 to see if the game is on anyway.

  10. Racki says:

    Bear in mind this is on a diff sportsnet one than the main one … to add confusion

  11. chucker says:

    FFS!! Bell isn’t carrying it.

    Too bad. I was looking forward to seeing all the hits and fights.

  12. Racki says:

    Trogdor: Not on NHL network so I’m done for.Guess I’ll do some renos.

    Grab a couple homebrews and head over

  13. zackman35 says:

    Man, can you imagine if the Oilers beat the Nucks tonight? Sisters + Lou… well they have about 10NHL players while we have maybe 4 (Horc, Storts, Whitney, Vandermeer)?

  14. Racki says:

    Let’s hope! But I don’t our blue collar guys are even the best choices.

  15. chucker says:

    This is one of the few times I’m pissed at Bell.

    It’s not like they have 2000 channels available for everything else…….effers.

  16. chucker says:

    I can’t even find it on any of the pirated sites. What has the internet come to?! :(

  17. Racki says:

    Yah that sucks man. I guess this is payback for having awesome satellite up to this point while us peons are on cable. :P

  18. chucker says:

    Karmic rebound.

  19. otto says:

    Lame that the Oilers site isn’t streaming this.

  20. chucker says:

    otto: Lame that the Oilers site isn’t streaming this.

    Nor is the Sportsnet one. At least not that I could find. :(

  21. Racki says:

    It should be on CHED at least…. just trying to help. lol

  22. zackman35 says:

    Sorry Chucker, I looked around at my usual places and nothing seems to have the feed. I could hook up my webcam and post a live feed somewhere =p

  23. chucker says:

    Thanks Zack. A live streaming game from your living room would be swell.

    @ Racki; Yeah, CHED. Oh well, al least the new guy sounds good.

  24. Racki says:

    The Canucks are streaming it online for “Free” but there is all this sign up b.s.

    Haven’t read the full details, but it might not really end up being free:

    http://canucks.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=64206&navid=DL|VAN|home

    edit: it also appears unavailable in our area. I’ll dig the forums for a stream..

    Access denied. “You are accessing this page from a restricted territory.”

    Now I really hope the boys pummel the ‘Nucks. *insert angry emoticon here*

  26. otto says:

    Thanks Racki. I think I’ll just CHED it ‘cus, honestly, I can’t stand listening to the Canucks guys anymore.

    Btw, was that Rod’s replacement dude who was calling the Joey Moss Cup game? If so, I like him.

    Proxy?

  28. chucker says:

    Racki: Proxy?

    Yes. :D

  29. MetalOil says:

    I might have a feed

    http://www.justin.tv/canucks_hockey#/w/410508432

    The channel is live right now. Its on TSN now but hopefully the user switches to sportsnet at game time.

    SFSG!! Hopefully it switches over.

  31. Racki says:

    Was just going to post that too.

  32. Racki says:

    And game on.. (well, show on)

  33. MetalOil says:

    Here is a new link that might work better.

    http://www.justin.tv/canucks_hockey#/w/410570032

  34. zackman35 says:

    Racki: And game on.. (well, show on)

    Don’t you mean “Shaw on”! Sorry couldn’t ignore the Gene in me. Is that Pink Floyd intro music?!

  35. Racki says:

    Ahh… so nice to hear Quinn and DeBrusk again..

  36. chucker says:

    MetalOil: Here is a new link that might work better.http://www.justin.tv/canucks_hockey#/w/410570032

    Seems to be working……for Leafs highlights. Maybe the game will start soon.

  37. Racki says:

    zackman35:

    Yep.. I was sitting here thinking that too “is that Floyd I hear?” (sounded like Time if I’m not mistaken..)

  38. MetalOil says:

    Ok this is the wrong sportsnet or something cause i am just getting SN connected.

  39. otto says:

    The jersey is officially on!

  40. zackman35 says:

    I hope that Giroux really puts on a show tonight, as much as I’d like to see him succeed in the “A”, I’d rather have him playing successful in the show.

  41. otto says:

    Ouch, my freikin’ ears.

  42. Racki says:

    Zack: Yah he actually didn’t look bad last night. I think with Giroux, playing with those speedy guys isn’t as bad as you’d think. For him, anybody can bust ass and skate hard in a straight line (i.e. to keep up). It’s speed with maneuverability that can be tricky.

    So I think he will do fine keeping up with linemates, offensively.

  43. LateNightOilFan says:

    That was quite a twangy version of Oh Canada…I’m CHED’g it tonight, has anyone found a video feed that works yet?

  44. Racki says:

    Onddruusss scccoorrrress

  45. Racki says:

    Nice rebound control, Loooo

  46. MetalOil says:

    I missed that sound !!! not that we heard it all that often last season.
