Monday Morning Standings

An all time favorite pic.

GDT Below!

Yeah yeah, its Wednesday again. But I’ve been extremely busy at work the past couple weeks (thanks to Trogdor last week, and to Racki a couple weeks before that) for keeping the monster going.

In Oilers land, they seem to be playing better the past week. Made a game of the CBC one, and a couple wins in there. Not too shabby. Cogliano has been playing lights out, and amazingly we have weathered the Hemsky injury as best we can. The Khabibulin injury didn’t impact us at all because we have two goalies that are better that filled in.

In the rest of the league news, Pronger got busted doing the Avery which got a goal disallowed.

Pat Burns funeral was held, dude had the holy grail as an urn (awesome), but his widow had her car broken into and a bunch of jersey’s stolen (by an asshat). Tencer mentioned on twitter that Tortorella had each team provide an autographed jersery to auction off to go towards the Pat Burns arena (or something like that, twitter is blocked at work and I can’t get to it now) which is why she had jerseys in her car.

Byfuglien is awesome. Luongo was heard saying “Told you so”.

And uhh, it was Thanksgiving in the states, so yeah. Football was enjoyed.

Anyways, onto the standings:

PRE-GAME RANT

For many years since I was old enough to watch hockey, I was an Oilers fan first and a Habs fan second. So I’ve followed these guys for years and years as a second favorite team. That said, I’m hoping the Oilers spank them tonight. But I don’t think it will be an easy task the way Price has been playing (he will get the start tonight).

Some roster changes tonight for the Oilers. Gerber has been returned back to Oklahoma City as Khabibulin will come off the IR. Hemsky also makes his triumphant return to the lineup tonight (woohoo) and will play with Gagner and Paajarvi. I like that, because right now Penner, Cogliano and Brule are flying… you don’t want to break up a good thing, especially since Cogliano and Brule were slumping big time before. I hope that Paajarvi can be worked out of a scoring slump of his own, playing with Gagner and Hemsky.

Prediction: 3-1 Oilers
