PRE-GAME RANT

So it’s official. Like we didn’t know it was happening, but sorry Brent Sutter, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will not be returning to the Red Deer Rebels. I think we can all agree that he’s been a pleasant surprise here. So has our defense and even… gasp… Nikolai Khabibulin, who really stole a game for us last night against the “best team in the NHL” – the formerly undefeated Washington Capitals who had been averaging close to 4 goals per game. Great work by the Wall, who at least temporarily won fans over. Hopefully that trend continues.

I’m not sure, but I have to figure that Dubnyk starts tonight, being a back to back. I think he’ll play well, but with the Oilers being tired from a shortened rest between games, I think this one could be a loss and the Avalanche will regain #1 spot in the Northwest. That’s right, I said regain, as currently that spot belongs to the Oilers (by tie breaker). I’m not thinking too much of that though, as really it’s way too early in the year, but this has been one of their best starts to a season in quite some time, despite missing services of key players Ryan Whitney and Ales Hemsky.

Prediction: 3-1 Avalanche

Question of the day…

I didn't feel like coming up with a clever picture, sorry.

I didn't feel like coming up with a clever picture, sorry.


OK, not exactly something we haven’t brought up from time to time, but I can’t help but think about it more.

Would you trade the 1st overall and 19th overall pick to Colorado for 2nd and 11th overall?

I think I would. Last year, that gets you any one of these players:
Jack Campbell, Cam Fowler, Brandon Gormley, Jaden Schwartz, Derek Forbort, Vladimir Taresenko, etc…

As well, it also gets you one other player not named Taylor Hall.

Would you do it? I’m stealing a conversation between “spOILer” and “cabbiesmacker” on Lowetide. spOiler asked the question I phrased above, and cabbiesmacker replied with: Continue reading 'Question of the day…'»

PRE-GAME RANT

Here we are, the final game of the season> And what way to end it than with a meaningless game between two bottom feeders? In all seriousness, I am still very much enjoying Oiler hockey. While the end result is a big stinker, I think the season has been a great success in seeing what the future holds. And while there won’t be a post-season for our Edmonton Oilers, there will be one for the Oklahoma City Barons… so I suggest you follow and cheer them on. If you want to follow someone on Twitter who updates the Barons games a lot, I’d suggest following @ryaber (Ryan Aber).

Don’t forget, Tuesday night we find out who the “winner” of the first overall pick is. That’s the only excitement we have in the near future, aside from the AHL playoffs.

Prediction: 4-1 Oilers

Some are calling this the Basement Bowl… others the Toilet Bowl. Call it what you will, it’s two teams that have struggled immensely. The Avalanche have had a serious meltdown in the last month. The most recent standings I could check while Steve-O was still saving them and the Avalanche were a decent team was January 19th, and the Avs were sitting in 7th place in the West. This actually looks to be the meltdown point anyways, as I had a look and they’ve gone 2-21-3 since then!!! Yikes. That’s disgustingly bad. That’s reminiscent of that one January we hadn’t had a single win. But even the Oilers did better than that. I don’t think they’ve had such an awful stretch in such a short period of time. Talk about a disaster.

Now the Avalanche are contending with us for the 30th position in the league. They haven’t had a win in their last 10 games, and two of those losses came at the hand of the Oilers by a score of 5-1. This is one we can win. It will pull things tighter in the standings, but I know the players don’t want to finish 30th. They’ll do what they can to win this one.

Prediction: 4-2 Oilers

Well, if you’ve been living under a rock tonight’s line ups might shock you a little… Taylor Hall sustained a high ankle sprain last game completing his Gordie Howe hattrick. Terrible to see him go down as he was steadily improving all season and with Hemsky out and Penner traded it’s up to Eberle, Magnus, and Omark to keep the excitement levels high enough to tune in. No pressure.

Perennial scratch Brule did not skate this morning and is out of the line up and Giroux, who has been leading the barons in scoring, has been called up to shore up the numbers. He’ll be wearing #12 tonight. Plante has also drawn in, but not sure who’s sitting on D.

Our MVP has returned! But Dubnyk will be getting the start again tonight.

Tonight’s opponents have gone 1-7-2 in their last 10, so expect them to come out hard against our boys who are pretty banged up.
