Monday Morning Standings

Taking a brief break from my focus on sports, to bring the spotlight down on some ladies who have been getting rave reviews from players on twitter.

Bruins/Habs tonight. Should be fun watching Chara murder whoever pulls the short straw.

Well, the Oilers are limping towards their second 30th place finish ever. Players keep getting injured, although JFJ is now healthy again so we got to send some help back down to OKC. No point in keeping a useful player on this team when we have JFJ to play! Right now the best part of being an Oiler fan is twitter. Whitney is pretty funny, as is Terry Jones! I’ve also cut Tencer out of my twitter feed and couldn’t be happier.

And that’s it for Oiler news. Well, as far as I’m concerned.

In league news Cooke performed his patented flying elbow to the chin move, and the league suspended him for the remainder of the season and the first round of the playoffs. I loved this (not the hit, but the results). Basically it forced Lemieux to put up or shut up (the whole team really didn’t give a shit about head shots it seemed until Crosby went down) and it forced the league to actually do something. Now there is a precedent and future hits like that should have similar consequences. And I hate that fucker Cooke.

Ottawa signed Anderson to a 4 year deal, just over 12 mil. Seems steep, but Anderson’s played well the past two years so maybe it’ll work out.

Oh, and Malhotra is out for the season now with an eye injury. Makes me start to think about wearing a visor in my league. Yikes.

And now on to the standings:

So the Oilers have virtually sealed up 30th place now (although I think they did it a while ago). The chances of the Oilers gaining 7 points on Ottawa or 8 points on Colorado with only 9 games left are so pathetically low that we can accept again that we will finish 30th this year. Not much to say about this one, other than it is more showcase time for the youth such as Hartikainen.

Giroux has already been sent back to OKC, now that JFJ and Fraser are back. But Foster is also out. For those that missed the last game.. he got hit pretty hard and fell awkwardly backwards banging his head (albeit helmeted) on either the ice or the boards. I suspect he probably was concussed on that play. He didn’t have his legs at all when they were helping him off the ice. I can say he has been whipping boy #1 for me all year, but I hate to see anyone get badly hurt, so I hope he’ll be OK soon. He’s already had his one scary bad injury in his career.

Anyways, predicting another loss here…
3-1 St. Louis
