PRE-GAME RANT

This one’s an early one. Hopefully the Oilers are actually awake for this one. How many times have I used the word “hopefully” in a game day thread pre-game rant? Probably quite a lot. The Rangers are sitting in the middle of the pack, while the Oilers are once again basement dwellers – last in the league.

Since I’m actually writing this one the night before, I haven’t heard anything official on Horcoff, but it sounds like he will be playing against the Rangers. And hell, that lucky bastard Boston Oiler even got some confirmation on that, straight from the source. So that is good news.

Prediction: I always thought the Oilers were good vs. Eastern teams. I figure they’ll get a boost out of the return of Horcoff too. If they lose this one though, I’m going to get my brown bag out… (kidding).

Prediction: 6-3 Oilers

PRE-GAME

Well, after an unmerciful 6-2 beating at the hands of the Red Wings, after an 7-1 pounding by Hurricanes, it’s hard to get excited about another Oilers game. But this one comes against another struggling team. I think the Oilers can be a better team than they appear to be some nights, so I still expect a win.

Still trying to dig up lineups. I know Dubnyk gets the start tonight. Horcoff is a gametime decision.

Unrelated to hockey, Richie Hall has been canned from the Eskimos. I’ll complete this GDT later today… busy work day for my sorry ass!

Prediction: Oilers 4, Devils 2

PRE-GAME

Happy Remembrance/Veterans Day everyone! Hope you are all remembering where this day off came from (if you have a day off.. if you don’t, I hope you remember why you’re jealous of those that do have a day off ;)).

One thing we’d like to forget, however, is the Oilers last performance in Raleigh, vs. the Hurricanes. The sign of any good team is how they respond from a game like that. Every team gets pounded now and then. The Blues are off to a flying start this season (tied for the lead in the West and only 1 loss in 12 games, going into yesterday’s game), and they were beaten badly by the Columbus Blue Jackets last night. It happens. The Oilers can put the game against the Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers 2, Red Wings 6 – Game 14 – 2010-11-11 @ 5:30 PM – SNET ONE'»

PRE-GAME

The Oilers dominated the Canes last year, sweeping the season series. It was only one game, but it’s a sweep! Same deal this season, so here’s hoping for another win. The Canes are currently 7-7 and most recently split a home and home with the Panthers. 7th pick Jeff Skinner has been turning some heads so far tallying 12 points in 14 games. I think he’s after our Calder.

Who’s hot? Kurtis Foster, that’s who! He’s been a point per game guy the last 5 and Gagner has also lit the lamp 3 times in the last 4 games.

No official word on line ups so far and Horcoff plus a few others are listed questionable tonight so we could see some changes.

Thank you, Edmonton Sun..

Thank you, Edmonton Sun..

So with Steve-O away from work, I guess the task of this Monday Morning Standings thing falls to me or Trogdor. So, I apologize for the MMS post actually falling on a Monday. Steve-O is off for a few weeks while he packs stuff up and moves on up to a deluxe apartment in the sky…. actually, to a house he bought. But quoting the Jefferson’s theme song doesn’t make sense when you say “movin’ on up to a deluxe house in Millwoods”. Of course, most of you probably are too young to even know what “The Jeffersons” is.. so I’ll just stop talking all stupid now and get on with it.. Continue reading 'MMS – 2010/11/08'»
