PRE-GAME RANT

OK, so we finally lived up to our end of the Battle of Alberta for the last match up with Calgary, and Calgary no-showed. Leaves me curious as to which team will no-show tonight… or will we finally have a real Battle of Alberta?

Teemu Hartikainen will draw in tongiht, taking Linus Omark out of the lineup. Ben Eager skated today, but he isn’t ready to go yet… maybe Sunday he will play.

Doobie gets the start, after a shutout in his last game. According to Oilers Nation, “Flames people” (I presume that means media and/or fans) are predicting a start by Leland Irving in net for the Flames. That probably doesn’t bode well for us, as I always have thought that we stink it up against the “back ups”. But hey, who knows.

Who will win the Calder race?

Who will win the Calder race?

Raining some cold hard facts in here…

Here are the numbers for these kids now:

Name (age): GP. G-A-P (PP G-A-P), +/-, Total TOI, PP TOI, G/G, A/G, P/G
Landeskog (19): 72, 20-26-46 (5-5-10), +19, 18:29, 2:09, 0.278, 0.361, 0.639
Henrique (21): 62, 15-31-46 (0-6-6), +10, 18:21, 1:37, 0.242, 0.5, 0.742
Nuge (18): 50, 16-27-43 (3-19-22), -4, 17:30, 3:09, 0.32, 0.54, 0.860

Now projected stats if they continue their seasonal average points per game pace:

Name (age): GP, G-A-P
Landeskog (19): 82, 23-30-53
Henrique (21): 74, 18-37-55
Nuge (18): 62, 20-33-53

How about if these kids played a full season and maintained their seasonal average point per game paces?

Name (age): GP, G-A-P

PRE-GAME RANT

Holy eff! A team we don’t have a worse record than, finally. That never bodes well for us, however. Well, really nothing bodes well for us, so this is just any other game, I suppose.

It would appear that Eager is a scratch tonight with back spasms. Might be cause for concern, as he’s had troubles with that throughout the year. Teemu Hartikainen has been called up. I’m curious as to where they play him. Just simply in Eager’s spot? Probably, but I could see him making a decent impression higher up in the lineup. Problem is, he hasn’t arrived yet. So he might not even suit up for this one. Peckham is in for Sutton. Doobie gets the start.

I’ll be at this one tonight. It so happens to be Ryan Nugent-Hopkins mini-stick night. If you’re going.. get there early if you want one.

You should all be watching Californication


MMS out! What! I’d say that it’s getting earlier however this is really supposed to be last weeks, so I’m actually getting this out so late it seems early.

Oiler News

– Eberle hit 30 goals. Matheson thinks he’ll be a regular 50 goal scorer due to soft hands. My question is will he regularly shoot 20+%?
– Racki and I did some scouting on Saturday, and saw Dumba’s Rebels get shit-kicked by Reinhart’s Oil Kings. Reinhart is bigger, and punches people when they are on the ground so he gets my vote. Sounds like Racki’s too. We also picked up passes for the entire playoffs so we’ll get a good look at this kid. I forget what playoff hockey is like live, so that should also be interesting. I recommend checking out the hockey, it’s really good this year. And the entire playoff run can be had for $99. Good seats too (we are row 14).
– Ummm, outside of that I haven’t really paid all that much attention to the Oilers. I usually put the game on but quickly find something else to occupy my time.
– Oh wait, I think Renney is losing his shit. Twitter said he got a wee bit upset with his team after last nights game (shades of Mac T perhaps?). Also, why the hell is he running Whitney/Schultz out in the third pairing. I thought the trade was bad enough, but sending out a top pairing for a bottom 6 guy isn’t going to cut it Tambellini.

League News

– Speaking of Mac-T, this is a solid interview with him. Good to see he’s enjoying himself. Looking forward to seeing him in the league again.

PRE-GAME RANT

Hello folks. Tonight the Oilers face the Sharks again. The last meeting, a week ago, went well with the Oilers picking up the 3-2 win in the shootout.

Dubnyk will get the start for this one, and Ben Eager is in for Darcy Hordichuk. Cam Barker and Theo Peckham are also scratches. To quote Steve-O, “so they are planning on winning this one?”

I think if we picked up a GOOD goaltender (perhaps Harding can do it?) in the off-season, and a few better bottom six guys, this team will look a lot better. Another solid d-man would be nice too. But this line up is looking a little closer to an NHL line up. It still has issues though, so don’t worry, I’m not too clueless. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the Oil pulled off a win tonight.
