PRE-GAME RANT

It seems like it’s been an eternity since the last Oilers game.. a whole week ago! So I’m happy to finally see some hockey, even if it is nearly last place hockey.

The biggest change tonight is going to be seeing Philippe Cornet (fresh out of the AHL All-Star Game, no less) playing on line 2. Tom Renney mentioned that the Oilers need to see what they have before they know what they need. I’m interested to see what Cornet can do, although I never really thought much of him in our lineup. He’ll play with Eberle and Gagner, which should be a good chance to show off his skills if they’re there. He also should get some powerplay time.

Dubnyk starts this one again tonight too.

BTW, does anyone have any clue what channel this will be on? It’s not showing on the Shaw Guide just yet. I assume 302, since it is “Sportsnet Oilers”. But really, I’m not sure. I won’t be around, but I’d like to record it.

All Star Monday Morning Standings

By , January 27, 2012 8:13 am

Oiler News

– Eberle got selected to the All Star game, should be a nice little bonus on his pay cheque.
– Rumors abound about Hemsky being traded (booo personally) and Gagner being on the block (boo again). I wouldn’t do either unless you have a current top 4 D man coming back. Some other rumor monger is saying that there is interest in Peckham and Sutton too. What kind of rebuild trades away kids too?

League News

– All Star teams were picked, Eberle got selected by Team Chara. Couture ended up being picked last, and apparently got a old person car. Datsyuk was picked first, cause he’s pretty fucking awesome.
– Tim Thomas was a right wing nut bag, but meh. I would have personally loved to have gone to meet Obama and see the white house, but then again I’m Canadian and I’d be like a fucking tourist. “Look! That’s where JFK banged the shit outta Monroe!”
– Ovechkin got suspended 3 games for a high hit, and subsequently removed himself from the All Star festivities.
– Puck Daddy has an interesting contributor called The Player, who is a current player and offers some insight to the game. My guess is it is a college grad, and union rep. Since I am Oilers biased, I’m guessing Horcoff.

2011/12 - Quarter 2 Review

Well, sorry for this being wayyy late. But really, motivation has been low, especially with the Oilers sucking so badly. For how many quarterly reviews have we said that, I wonder?

Anyways, here it is…

Well.. holy crap…. we won a game! I think the Oilers seem to do their best against the difficult opponents, and slack off against the bottom feeders. If only that were the case against teams like Vancouver too.

Lines have been updated.. Ryan Whitney is back, and Ben Eager also draws back in.

Edit: And Eager is now out with an upper body injury.. Either Lennart Petrell or Darcy Harodichuk will draw in.

PRE-GAME RANT

So a couple of bits of news to get out of the way for the game day thread… one, Jordan Eberle is going to the All Star game! Normally I wouldn’t be too excited.. because the All Star game is crap. But it will give me reason to watch it. It’ll give opportunity for more showcasing of our talent here. I wish we had Hall or Nuge there too. The other bit of news is that the Nuge will NOT be at the All Star weekend. Oh well, no big deal. Also, if you hadn’t heard it, apparently the Oilers are going to very likely extend Steve Tambellini’s contract soon. That is disappointing, but I have been wondering if Katz, Lowe and Tambellini all had planned on tanking for at least this long ahead of time and decided that nothing would steer them off course. Are they here by design or by incompetence? It sure would be nice to know that for sure.

Anyways, tonights game will likely be unwatchable. I will watch it, because I am masochistic.
