PRE-GAME RANT

Tonight the Oilers face the Dallas Stars, who are currently sitting at 3rd in the conference. They’ve been on a tear too, with 4 wins in a row (7-2-1 in their last 10). The Oilers are in the opposite situation, having had a tough time winning in their last 10 (2-7-1) and having dropped their last 3. I don’t see any reason to think that either streak will change tonight.

Horcoff is due back tonight, however (although not enough to swing things in our favor).

Prediction: 4-1 Stars

Also, rumors now starting of Penner or Hemsky being dealt before the deadline (barring any concussions), per the Fourth Period.

PROJECTED LINES



Hall – Horcoff – Penner
Paajarvi – Gagner – Omark
Reddox – Cogliano – Jones
Jacques – Fraser – Stortini

Peckham – Gilbert
Smid – Petry
Chorney – Foster

Khabibulin
Dubnyk

    Take note of the link in the GDT post above… rumors of Hemsky/Penner interest from teams.

  2. chucker says:

    I don’t like the idea of trading Jones, but I guess they have to try to get something for an UFA. If they don’t re-sign him, it will be akin to the Glenncross situation.

  3. Racki says:

    Agreed, Chucker. “Get ‘er done, Tambi”

  4. Scarriere says:

    I like Jones’ play. I hope he stays. It’s too bad Hemsky is hurt. That’ll mean if Tambi makes a deal, bye,bye to Penner. I think trading one of our few players that actually has and uses his size is a step backward. Myself, if I ran the show(which I don’t), I would find out which of the two actually wants to stay after next year then try to make a move with that in mind.

  5. Racki says:

    Yah, good thoughts Scarriere. I’m in no hurry to move either, but honestly, I hope Penner sticks around past the end of his contract because I think he brings the missing parts we need, which you describe.

  6. hemmerlady says:

    Bah, another L. We need to get out of this rut. Steer into the slide, boys? (p.s. ixnay on the radingtray emmerHay.)

  7. NorwegianOiler says:

    Losses hurt any day. I can’t decide if the worst ones are when we outplay and lose or get taken for a ride and lose – at least not in this type of situation.

    Khabibulin’s stats keep saying “Start Dubnyk more”.

    Nice to see Petry get his first, nice shot too. I bet Smid talks more about his assist than Petry brags about his goal, though ;)

  8. Racki says:

    Yah really Khabibulin is notttt looking good. Nabokov anyone? :P Just kidding..

  9. NorwegianOiler says:

    I can’t believe Detroit would sign Nabokov to such a deal without having something up their sleeve? Maybe a sign and claim and deal? If they intend to rely on 29 teams passing on a good netminder at .570M for the year (even less actually) they must be delusional.

    Then again, the Blues have signed two no-shows so far ;)

  10. Racki says:

    The only thing I can figure is that they’re attempting to sign him and have something worked out with a team that is going to claim him and trade them one of their other goaltenders. I don’t think that even makes sense. But I just don’t see how they can get him.
