PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers are fresh off a thrilling 5-3 victory over the Thrashers in which the Oilers battled back from a 3-1 deficit. The Oilers got some life on their powerplay finally (including a 5-on-3 goal.. at long last) thanks in part to Taylor Hall’s first career hattrick. All 3 were scored on the powerplay, in the same period, and unanswered. Hemsky put the final nail in the coffin with an empty net goal. Tonight the Oilers head into enemy territory and face a team that they’ve struggled with for a while now, especially in their building. The Oilers are 0-3 this year too against the Wild.

Will the Oilers continue to ride the high?

Prediction: 4-2 Wild

    The roll continues.
    4-1 Oilers.

    The rumor mill has been saying that the Oilers are trying to move Ladislav Smid to Nashville for offensive D-man Jonathan Blum.

    I don’t like that he lacks the physical aspect in his game, but sounds like he is a two-way defender. He appears to be developing the “right way” too, through their farm team. Pretty rock solid offensive numbers down there. At first I thought “oh great, another puff-tart on defense…”… but as long as he plays a good positional game, I’m OK with it. He was drafted 23rd overall in 2007 by the Preds. So far he has 34 points in 54 games for the Milwaukee Admirals. I hope the Oil have been scouting him quite hard and know what they’re doing. I like Smid and would not be happy to see him go. Would rather send them Foster if they would take it.. but I would have to figure that doesn’t get that deal done at all.

    I don’t like the sound of this. AHL defender for a proven NHL defender with nothing but upside? Foster better be the guy not Smid.
