Trade deadline approaches.. FUCK YEAH!

Trade deadline approaches.. FUCK YEAH!

So, the Christmas day of the NHL approaches… the trade deadline. It’s Monday, February 28th @ 1:00PM MST. The days leading up to the deadline were actually quite excitement filled. TSN has a trade tracker page up here. I count 25 trades this month alone (26 now, as I type this.. as news just came in that Brad Boyes was dealt to Buffalo). Who even thought Erik Johnson, James Neal or Craig Anderson would be available? It’ll be interesting to see if this deadline finishes with a bang or fizzles out.

As for the Oilers, I don’t expect much at all. Foil contributor Zackman35 had a good comment today about the moves he could see the Oilers making, which inspired my list below… Continue reading 'Trade Deadline Awesomeness'»

PRE-GAME RANT

So today the Oilers face the Bruins in their only match of the 2010/11 season. The Bruins are 6-4-0 in their last 10, and the Oilers are 5-5-0. The Oil stunk the joint up against the Blues, losing 5-0 on Friday. The Oilers will get a bit of help tonight in the form of Gilbert Brule. Taylor Chorney is still out though with knee problems.

This will also mark the first matchup of 2010′s top draftees – Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin. So far Taylor Hall seems to be winning the race between the two by a landslide, but it’s definitely a marathon, as both of these guys should have long, productive careers (one can hope, anyways).

Prediction: 4-2 Oilers. Really, they should lose this one, but I generally like how we play eastern teams.

FAIRLY EDUCATEDLY GUESSTIMATED LINES
