PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers face the Blue Jackets tonight and for the first time this season. The Jackets have struggled almost all year, but they’ve shown a pulse in their last half-dozen-ish games.

In news recently for the Blue Jackets is Allan Walsh’s ripping of Columbus Blue Jackets coach Scott Arniel for his handling of Derick Brassard. Walsh is Brassard’s agent and has been very vocal in the past for other clients as well too. Some chatter out there suggests that the Oilers should take a crack at trading for him, to which I’ll say “no, thank you”. Too much money, too long a term, and nowhere near good enough production even if he did have a hot rookie year.

This one should be a game that the Oilers power through fairly handily, but we all know how those “easy” games can go. Hopefully the Oilers take the Blue Jackets more seriously than the Flames did last night! The Oilers are currently sitting in 11th in the conference, but are right in the mix. Every win is important from here on out.

Doobie starts tonight.

    Isn’t it just the cap hit is high? If we have the cap room and he’s available for a late pick then why not?

    Other than the fact we have 100 forwards already.

  2. Racki says:

    As long as Katz is paying bills, cap hit is the only thing I really care about. However, he’s not on an ELC, so no, it’s not just cap hit that’s high. Also he’s on contract til 2013-14. Do you really want this noose around our necks when we’re re-upping Hall/Eberle/Paajarvi? I don’t. The less bad contracts here, the better. Right now, that one is looking pretty bad.

  3. Steve-O says:

    I figured he was still on ELC as his rookie season was a couple years back (and with capgeek blocked at work it is too much effort to look, just easier to have you look)

  4. Racki says:

    Capgeek’s open at work! Has been for a while. For some reason though, NHL Numbers is blocked now. They need to get their shit together.

    Jonesy with the hatter! Love it.

  6. Racki says:

    It was good to see that despite playing a bad period or so, the Oilers came out on top. This is something that would have killed them last year.
