Adam Brown is between the pipes for the Oil rookies tonight

Adam Brown is between the pipes for the Oil rookies tonight


Tonight is the third and final game of the tourney… the Battle of Alberta style. This game will again be shown on the Oilers website. There will be no Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tonight. Also absent, at least as starters, are Olivier Roy and Tyler Bunz. Adam Brown gets the start. Never heard of the guy, to be honest… but best get is he is here on a try out, as Hockeydb shows him as undrafted.

The Oilers rookies have been as promised so far, putting in two impressive outings with a 7-1 win over the Canucks Young Stars and a 2-0 shutout win over the Jets Young Stars. Tyler Bunz was the story in the Jets game, for sure… will be interesting to see how Brown follows up THAT performance.

One of the great Jets of yore.

One of the great Jets of yore.


Holy shit it’s the Jets. That’s all I have to say.

OK… not really..

This one will be “televised” on the web on the Oilers homepage. I really wish that we could have seen this one on TV, as I’d love to see the Jets jerseys in full HD.

This will be our first good look of Bunz in net this year. I’m anxious to see how he does. The Nuge will line up with Hamilton and Pelss again, a line which showed chemistry already. Pitlick is also being slotted at center for this one… another move I’m interested in. Rajala… according to the Oilers Twitter’s lineup tweet he Continue reading 'GDT – Oilers YS 2 – Jets YS 0 – oilers.nhl.com @ 8:30 PM MST'»

PRE-GAME RANT

So, unfortunately the Flames continued their dominance over the Oilers, with the last game being a 5-1 loss. That puts our last win over Calgary at September 15, 2009 (in pre-season) in a 4-1 win. But the stage was set for a great end to the pre-season with some good action in the Battle of Alberta. The game was good for 40 minutes or so, but the Oilers just couldn’t stay out of the box, and that eventually cost them, despite some really good PKs. Khabibulin might have been hammered on Friday too, as at one point during a commercial break, he ran over one of the ice crew girls, drawing a comment from my girlfriend’s dad of “he skates like he drives”.

I’m hoping that the final pre-season game will be an ugly one, but not on the scoresheet. The first game had some good rough stuff, with a fantastic scrap between Ivanans and MacIntyre, a decent fight between Vandermeer and Jackman, and a tussle between Gingerballs and Whothefuckcares.

Lineups will be added when they are made available, but Millhouse already mentioned that the following players will be in the lineup, in a last ditch effort to evaluate talent: Peckham, Petiot and Belle on defense, Omark, Giroux, O’Marra, Ondrus and Jones at forward. The next round of cuts will be made on Monday.

And on an unrelated note, for you folks in the pool, don’t forget the pool drafts are tonight. For those of you in the first pool (“Foiled Again”) the draft starts at 8:00PM MDT. For those of you in the second pool (“Foiled Again Too”), the draft starts at 9:15PM MDT. You should show up a bit early, and you might want to rank your players before then, in case something happens where you can’t make the draft on time or at all.

Well, the rosters have reduced, the young guns are all in the lineup, and the goons are dressed to protect them.  Still preseason, but… 

“LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!”

The battle of Alberta starts off tonight with the Oilers having the home field advantage.  Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers vs. Flames – Pre-season Game 5 – 2010-10-01 @ 7:00 PM – SNET1 (SHAW – yup, TELUS – highly likely, Bell – When hell freezeth over)'»
