Game of Thrones! Best show on TV!
Who?! What?! What is going on here?
Yeah yeah, it’s been a while but I’ve been super busy at work the past few weeks and the Oilers have really sucked.
So here we go. MMS on the last few weeks + playoff predictions.
Racki covered most of it in the past few posts regarding draft rankings, the Oilers year end press conference and the final depressing season rundown.
Screw league news…it’s the playoffs!
Here are the first round match-ups with my predictions.
Los Angeles Kings(8) at Vancouver Canucks(1)
I want the Kings to win, however I think the Canucks won’t choke until the 2nd round. Canucks in 5.
San Jose Sharks(7) at St. Louis Blues(2)
Blues take this in 6.
Chicago Blackhawks(6) at Phoenix Coyotes(3)
I’ve grown to like the Coyotes. I’ll be cheering for them this playoff run, however I don’t think they will beat the Hawks. Hawks in 7.
Detroit Red Wings(5) at Nashville Predators(4)
Predators are another team I think will make some noise this post-season. Predators in 7.
Ottawa Senators(8) at New York Rangers(1)
I think this might be the Rangers year…my choice out of the East. Rangers in 6.
Washington Captials(7) at Boston Bruins(2)
Bruins in 5.
New Jersey Devils(6) at Florida Panthers(3)
Devils in 5.
Philadelphia Flyers(5) at Pittsburgh Penguins(4)
The first round series I think everyone is looking forward to. Will be the best series as well. Both top-notch teams. Flyers in 7. Edit (2012-04-10 12:03pm): Nevermind, I guess Bryzgalov and Briere are hurt…I’ll go with the Pens in 7.

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have recalled defenceman Taylor Chorney and assigned defenceman Jeff Petry to Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League.
I really like Petry. He showed good poise most nights, but there some plays where he had problems with the puck. So, I can why he was sent back down.. but I’m not worried. It’ll be good to give Chorney another opportunity too, and maybe he might be better for the powerplay.
Taylor Chorney returns to OKC. Take that, you show-boating, fastest skater…
General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have assigned defenceman Taylor Chorney to Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League.
Chorney, 23, was recalled to the Oilers on December 10 and played in six games collecting two assists.
The 6’0”, 193-pound Thunder Bay, Ontario native has appeared in 40 games with Oklahoma City scoring three goals and adding 12 assists.
I would think that means Jim Vandermeer is back. Never thought I’d be saying this, but, thank god!
Jeff Petry Recalled - Photo from A New Ice Age Blog
This one comes as a surprise to me, as I thought with Vandermeer skating he’d be back soon. But maybe because of the holiday roster freeze (and just general niceness of not wanting to pull Petry away during Christmas) they waited. I am excited about this call up, as I have a lot of expectations for Jeff Petry to be a good defenseman one day. It’ll take some time though.
