PRE-GAME RANT

The plus is that the Oilers took both games at United Center last year. The negative is that the Blackhawks won the last two games between these teams (and quite handily – 4-1 and 5-0). The Oilers are having a rough go with this road trip as is too, although they are 2-3-0, at least. A win tonight will break this road trip even, which is all you can really ask for a team.

In some sad news today, Kyle Fundytus, an Edmonton teeanger, died today from injuries suffered from a game at Clareview arena yesterday. He was struck in the neck by the puck and had undergone surgery. Condolences to his friends and family.

Prediction: 4-1 Edmonton.. in hopes we break even on this road trip!

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers are coming off an awful 6-3 shellacking by the hands of the Boston Bruins yesterday. I don’t predict that this one will be any better, but I’m pretty sure my track record for predictions is pretty awful.

Tonight Cam Barker is out (ankle injury), while Andy Sutton returns from his suspension (that is great news). Magnus Paajarvi will also draw in for this one while Ben Eager sits against what is probably the least dirty team in the league.

Prediction: 5-3 Detroit

PRE-GAME RANT

Taylor vs. Tyler is the story tonight. Do we care how well Tyler does? Well, other than to keep our goals against down, I say no. Tyler Seguin is a very good player, but I’m happy with what we got. Seguin’s success or lack of success doesn’t dictate how the draft went, imho.. it’s about how well Taylor Hall is doing here, and I think he’s easily one of the best players we’ve had here in ages. ‘Nuff said on that.

The former cup champions are off to quite a slow start this year, being 6-7-0 and the 4th worst team in the NHL standings right now. The Oilers, meanwhile, sit near the top with a shocking 9-3-2 start and the third highest point total in the NHL, thanks a lot to great goaltending and some much better team defense. I’ll give play by Gilbert and Smid a huge nod there too, especially. Continue reading 'Oilers 3, Bruins 6 – Game 15 – 2011-11-10 @ 5:00 PM MST – SNET EDM'»

Surprisingly difficult to find a SFW photo of her...

Oilers news: Hemsky back, awesome. Played well and got a point. Best player on the team by far (Barker returned too, not best player on team); Paajarvi HS’ed. Kinda shitty luck for the kid I’m guessing, of the 4 lines the 3rd was the least productive and of the 3 on that line he was the most expendable/not just coming off an injury.; Omark looks like he’d rather be in Sweden…I don’t blame him personally. One can only take so much “for the better of the team” bullshit that keeps cropping up (which is all good from a fan perspective I guess, but if your job keeps fucking you around eventually you quit right?), at some point you look at what is better for you and make the call. If the Oilers are not going to play him in the NHL then go back home and make more money.

League news: Columbus picks up Mark Letestu from the Pens for a 4th rounder, seems like a good deal for Columbus; Laraque called Gretzky the worst coach he’d ever had and says there was lots of steroids in hockey. Steroids call refuted by many current and ex players, worst coach call refuted by Darren Pang awesomely; Penner only has a 1 point this year, wonder what’s up with that as he wasn’t bad here (minus that first year); St. Louis fired their coach (PAYNE! Awesome last name.) and hired Hitchcock; Kuhnhackl was suspended 20 games for hitting top prospect Ryan Murphy.
