PRE-GAME RANT

So we didn’t get to see Klefbom last night, but we should tonight. Arcobello was “sent down” (on paper) to make room, but he’s been told by the coach to find himself a place to stay. In plain english, that means he’s made the team. This is good news. In reality, he should be ahead of Sam Gagner. He should be the 2nd line center… at least the way Gagner has been playing. I’m sure Gagner’s slowed down by the broken jaw. He isn’t going to go in the dirty areas like he needs to for him and this team to be successful. So, for now at least, Gagner needs to be moved down the lineup, and Arco up the lineup. But that won’t happen tonight.

Bryzgalov played for the Barons yesterday. Looks like he got shell-shocked in a 5-4 loss. According to Jonathan Willis, though, only one goal was possibly his fault. So that isn’t as bad as it sounds.

Sad moment.. this marks the first time the team will see Ladislav Smid in another uniform. I still hate this trade. Urgh.

The team needs a miracle tonight. They are playing an equally crappy team in Calgary. Calgary is all work, with little skill to show… the Oilers are all skill… with some heart from many players, but with a great lack in common sense and tactics. Something’s gotta give here. Both teams are struggling. 2-1 SO win for someone? The Oilers are slump-busters for most teams… but the Oilers also spanked the Flames 8-2 the last time these two teams met in Calgary. So who knows.

In other, non-hockey news, tonight is another George St-Pierre UFC fight. Not sure what time that starts, but I’m really interested in that too. I think Johny Hendricks will be a tough opponent for him. I will likely attempt to watch both tonight. Hopefully the Oilers don’t let me know…. GSP? He never lets me down.

    Not only does Gags need to move down the lineup. He needs a seat for a couple of games and then hopefully when he does get back in he can have a sort of restart to his season. His game is very ineffective right now and it’s hurting the team.

    -This coming from a long time Gagner supporter.

    #1 reason oilers lose games=swiss cheese goalie with glacial reaction time. look at any team at the top=strong goalie. the team plays with more confidence knowing that if they fail to block a shot the goalie is going to stop it. the oilers have never had that. 8 years of dubie is enough. it has got so bad that now if he lets in less than three goals they say he has had a good game. about time we had a #1 goalie.

    Yes, finally!!! It was only the similarily slumping Flames but it’s a big win in my books. Not a stellar game for Dubbie but he made some huge saves late in the 3rd that made the difference. Some good hustle & smart plays by the Oilers in 2nd & 3rd periods, maybe this is the turn around game ;)
