For all 4-ish of our female visitors.... sorry... lol

So the Oilers did up a new Christmas video in which they interviewed the players and asked who they’d want to be their Secret Santa, and what they would by in return for them.. here it is:

Just like last year, I figured I’d do up a wish list for some of the players of my own:

First off, I will say that the two team’s records and place in the standings are quite a statement as to how hard it is to make it in the playoffs in the West. The Kings are sitting at 19-12-1… which sounds like a pretty damn good record, but right now that’s only good for 9th place in the West. Yikes. The Oilers have a long way to go if they have any hope of making it in. I haven’t completely written them off yet, and it probably won’t be long before I do… but I still have hopes right now that they win as much as they can.

Anyways, I think tonight should be a fun one to watch for us. I’m going to call this one a 5-2 win for the good guys.

Well Canada is now 2-0 in the preliminary rounds. They beat Switzerland handily on Monday by a score of 8-0. They beat Sweden on Tuesday quite easily as well by a score of 4-1… however I felt in this game the penalties were heavily unfavorably balanced. The Swedes spent far too much time in the box for this one. Looks like the Swedes had 12 penalties (10 distinct power plays, with 2 10-minute misconducts) compared to Canada’s 4. That might be undisciplined hockey.. but I think Continue reading 'WJHC 2011 GDT – Canada 5, Finland 2 – Pre-Comp 3 – 2010-12-23 @ 5:30PM MST – TSN2'»

It feels like we already had the Christmas break since our last game… four days off is an eternity! The Oilers are of course fresh off a hot win (6-3 over the Blue Jackets), so nothing like four days off to completely cool off a team. Both teams are 6-3-1 in their last 10. The Sharks have owned the series so far, spanking the Oilers 6-1 for the first meeting, back in October, and then winning 4-3 in November. Hopefully the Oilers continue the improvement vs. the Sharks though and win tonight. Tom Renney is promising playoffs, and he’s going to need all the help he can get.

Prediction: 4-2 Sharks (damn it!)

OK, so this time officially, Edmonton Oilers prospect Olivier Roy is in goal. Hopefully he can impress tonight. It’s hard to out class a guy who got a shutout, but doing well against the Swiss and doing well against the Swedes are two different animals (sorry Switzerland… you guys can teach a thing or two about defense but have some learning to do offensively).

Curtis Hamilton played last night but to be honest, I didn’t hear his name much (although granted, I wasn’t watching this one too closely – but he is playing on the 4th line and as the 13th forward). I did hear him on the PK though, and he did get in almost alone on goal once, but I believe his linemates were on a change, so there wasn’t much to that chance.

FYI, we’re running two GDT’s tonight. The Oilers also play, but Continue reading 'WJHC 2011 GDT – Canada 4, Sweden 1 – Pre-Comp 2 – 2010-12-21 @ 5:30PM MST – TSN'»
