TV: SNET ONE CGY (301/320 Shaw, 108/679 TELUS)


So, unfortunately the Flames continued their dominance over the Oilers, with the last game being a 5-1 loss. That puts our last win over Calgary at September 15, 2009 (in pre-season) in a 4-1 win. But the stage was set for a great end to the pre-season with some good action in the Battle of Alberta. The game was good for 40 minutes or so, but the Oilers just couldn’t stay out of the box, and that eventually cost them, despite some really good PKs. Khabibulin might have been hammered on Friday too, as at one point during a commercial break, he ran over one of the ice crew girls, drawing a comment from my girlfriend’s dad of “he skates like he drives”.

I’m hoping that the final pre-season game will be an ugly one, but not on the scoresheet. The first game had some good rough stuff, with a fantastic scrap between Ivanans and MacIntyre, a decent fight between Vandermeer and Jackman, and a tussle between Gingerballs and Whothefuckcares.

Lineups will be added when they are made available, but Millhouse already mentioned that the following players will be in the lineup, in a last ditch effort to evaluate talent: Peckham, Petiot and Belle on defense, Omark, Giroux, O’Marra, Ondrus and Jones at forward. The next round of cuts will be made on Monday.

And on an unrelated note, for you folks in the pool, don’t forget the pool drafts are tonight. For those of you in the first pool (“Foiled Again”) the draft starts at 8:00PM MDT. For those of you in the second pool (“Foiled Again Too”), the draft starts at 9:15PM MDT. You should show up a bit early, and you might want to rank your players before then, in case something happens where you can’t make the draft on time or at all.

How many times have we warned that you wouldnt like him when he's angry?

How many times have we warned that you wouldn't like him when he's angry?

“Any time you can lace up the skates and you know it’s going to be that type of game, chippy, hard-nosed, guys talking trash, I love it. It gets everybody fired up. Everybody in the stands and on the bench gets fired up when they see that old-school hockey, tempers, fists flying, goals being scored. To me, that’s hockey.” – Steve MacIntyre quote from last night’s post-game.

Big Mac is a guy that the Oilers players love to have on their side. The Edmonton Sun had a quote from Liam Reddox in today’s paper: “He’s a sheriff out there,” said Liam Reddox. “He takes care of us all. Even if he’s not out there he’s yelling from the bench, letting guys know that there’s going to be some retribution. It’s definitely calming to have him around.”

Big Mac also re-arranged Ivanans’ face last night… although to Ivanans’ credit, he landed some good shots on MacIntyre’s mug as well and left him with a couple of noticeable bruises.

But is that enough to deter a guy like Robyn Regehr from hitting one of our players? Possibly not, as quite some time after the fight (in the middle of the third period), he Continue reading 'The kids are (gonna be) alright (?)'»
