PRE-GAME RANT

Tonight the Oilers butt heads with the Canucks at Rexall place. I’ll be at this one, so I’m hoping for a good game. The Canucks haven’t exactly gotten off to a good start with just 1 win in their first 4 games, so there may be a chance that we win this one. We didn’t get the nickname “slump busters” for nothing though.

Dubnyk has been confirmed to be getting the start tonight, which makes me happy. I’m a firm believer in going with your best goalie until they show they need a night off. That hasn’t happened yet, however Dubnyk did get a night off vs. the Wild on Thursday. To his credit, Khabibulin was fairly good in net (although some of his puck handling decisions were scary) and I think that he played like he deserved to be there. But it really is good to see Dubnyk in net for this one, as I firmly believe he can steal games. That is likely what he will need to do against a team like Vancouver.

It really is too bad that we won’t see Ben Eager in the line up for this one, as he has some scores to settle with the Canucks. However, Darcy Hordichuk (as Jason Gregor noted) stated when he was signed that he will keep the Canucks and Flames honest. I’d love to see him do that tonight… maybe even stir the pot a bit.

Prediction: 4-2 Oilers

Hordichuk chucks them for us now..

Hordichuk chucks them for us now..

Sorry folks, no line combinations yet. This one is a bit thin, just like the Oilers current roster which lost 3 d-men last night. I think we know who will play the blueline tonight, since we’ve only got.. what.. 6 healthy D? Barker, Gilbert, Peckham, Potter, Sutton and Petry. Not sure who the forwards will be, but RNH is definitely in this one. Hopefully he plays with Hall and Eberle again tonight.

I’ll put the lines up later on when I have them. Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers at Canucks – Pre-season Game 8 – 2011-10-01 @ 8:00 PM MST – CBC'»

MMS – Post Round 2 edition

Happy Friday 13th, everyone. Steve-O is away on vacation right now (in Mexico… there is a good chance he is currently being finger-banged by a Federale right now). So today, I present you with the MMS. Now, MMS once stood for Monday Morning Standings, but tradition has shown that these things never appear on Mondays… and who am I to break up tradition? Plus, with it being the playoffs, we decided we’d only release one MMS per round. So here it is… enjoy. Continue reading 'MMS – Post Round 2 edition'»

PRE-GAME RANT

Boy was I ever wrong with my prediction of the outcome of last game. Then again.. how many times have I been right? And then again, who actually thought the 30th place Oilers (made up of AHLers right now) would actually beat the Vancouver Canucks? It was fairly reminiscent of the pre-season, when the Oilers beat them (although that was a romp, and against a less than stacked Canucks team).

Anyways, I am hoping for another win tonight, so that will be my prediction. I must say, I am skeptical though. But we’ll call it a close one this time.

Prediction: 4-3 Edmonton

P.S., decided to change the game day pic up, so people would notice a new GDT was up (yes.. that is Roli).

PRE-GAME RANT

If there is a game where the Oilers should get spanked, this is it. The Oilers take on the 1st overall Canucks tonight at Rogers Arena. The Canucks have dominated the series thus far, winning all 4 games, although 3 of those games were 1 goal games (the most recent one was a 6-1 disaster). The Canucks are on a 5 game winning streak, while the Oilers have struggled to win a game in their last 11. I can’t see tonight being the night where they break out of the slump.

Prediction: 6-0 Canucks
