Keeping it somewhat classy...Happy New Year!


And we are back! The MMS makes its glorious return from eating too much over the holidays.

This will be pretty short however as I will have missed anything that has happened the past 2 or 3 weeks (I can’t even remember when I last did it…which is better than forgetting my password when I came into work).

Canada kicks ass. Oilers not so much. In fact, it was pointed out on twitter that the Oilers have lost every game since Renney’s playoff announcement. Next time he might want to mention hitting the bottom and see how fast we go in the opposite direction.

Canada hit a snag with Sweden (although, Sweden was full value for the win from what I saw, out playing the Canadians), but pulled it out with a dominating win against the Americans and now due to Russia’s upset of the Swedes we now face our true rivals.

One thing is noticeable at this time, is the difference in excitement level between the world juniors and the NHL. It really is kind of boring watching a NHL game now.

Everyone must watch that HBO 24/7. Some of the best TV I have seen in a long time. Makes the Oil Change seem like a bush league production.

OU won the Fiesta Bowl. Seahawks make the playoffs (yeah yeah, losing record…its still the playoffs). Good times all around.

Oh, and JDD played for Canada during the Spengler cup. Wonder what that means for him? (Also Canada finished second in that tourney).

Anyways, on to the standings:

PRE-GAME RANT

Well with all the magic around the WJHCs, it’s almost hard to go back to an Oilers game, but you know what.. I’m still enjoying watching the games, unlike the same time last year (which was pretty intolerable). Don’t forget tonight is also part 3 of Oil Change. It starts at 5:30PM MST on TSN (2:30 AM Istanbul time :P).

Anyways, on to tonight’s game. We should see all 3 call ups in this one. Linus Omark and Liam Reddox were called up last night. Jeff Petry has already been here for about a week now. Jim Vandermeer is also expected to be back in the lineup. He practiced yesterday with Kurtis Foster as his D-partner, while Ladislav Smid played with Petry. I would not expect Jordan Eberle to be in for this one. It would be safe not to expect him back for a while, however there seems to be a lot of optimism that he’ll only miss a couple of games or so.

Prediction: 5-2 Red Wings

FAIRLY-EDUCATED-GUESS LINES
