PRE-GAME RANT

Some early updates on this one… Magnus Paajarvi has been recalled. Eric Belanger was put on the injured reserve list after hurting his foot blocking a shot. Doesn’t sound like anything serious. But given our luck, he might need to have his foot amputated.

Shawn Horcoff is also expected to be in the lineup for this one.. hopefully that is the case. He was absent from the last couple games with neck strain suffered on a hit from Shane Doan.

The Canucks are starting to show more of their “true” form… back on top of the standings, based on some fine play from Roberto “We don’t need you here anymore.. wait, yes we do” Luongo. Bleh.

Update @ 10:50am… sounds like Whitney will sit this one out in favor of Corey Potter. Hate to say it, but this is good. Also, word is Eric Belanger is wearing a walking boot now for his foot.

Monday Morning Standings – Superbowl Edition

Don't really like either team, but lets go with the 49ers...NFC West represent!

Don’t really like either team, but lets go with the 49ers…NFC West represent!


It’s the first MMS of the 2013 season! And since it’s the superbowl lets make some predictions…the coin toss will be heads, the anthem will be over 1:34, 49ers will score first and will win the game. Please note I lost all of my bets last year, so what you do with those predictions is on you.

Anyways, 15% of the way through the season, and we are in February, and the Oilers are currently in a playoff position!!! Holy shit!

All in all, the team looks as was expected, with the top 2 lines providing offense, bottom 6 looking a little weak and the defense looking…challenged. Dubnyk has been a pleasant surprise however, and has held us in a couple games already.

Powerplay looks to be a killer, and the PK outside of the one sharks game looks to be solid.

Oiler News

- Gagner and Hall lead the team in scoring at over a ppg (23rd and 26th in league scoring).
- Dubnyk is at a 0.925 sv% even after that one Sharks game!
- Yakupov has awesome celebrations.

League News

- Stamkos has 16 fucking points in 8 games…jesus. Kid’s pretty good.
- Coyotes are still as shit-show ownership-wise.
- Luongo is now awesome in my books based solely on his twitter, and cause he’s making shit all weird in Canucks-town.
- Spezza out 2 months for back surgery.

Anyways, on to the standings (and fight video, and Oil Kings):

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers are coming off back to backs winning the first in OT and losing the latter in a character building shootout loss. Much better than the drubbing they took from the Sharks in the home opener.

The Avs are still hurting, missing both Landeskog and Jones from the frontlines. Even down those 2 the Avs found a way to get the offence going in their last game against our Southern rivals the Flames. This game may be a little closer than the first meeting of the season.

Fistric stays in and Potter rides the pine. Horcoff has been greenlit for skating so the line-ups are still being hashed out. Top 2 lines are the only guarantees. That and Dubnyk is being ridden like a rented mule. He`s been up to the task so far, so not too worried there.
