The original "The Nuge"

Tonight is an exciting night for “the Nuge”. It was originally reported that he was playing with Hemsky and Smyth tonight, but it turns out he’ll be playing with what is possibly going to be the line of the Oilers future one day. The bookends for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tonight will be none other than Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle. This should make for a very exciting, dynamic trio. It would seem that RNH is a very responsible forward. I think Taylor Hall has a tendency to try to back check hard as well too. It’s hard not to think that these guys will get killed against most teams’ top lines, but now is the time to give it a test.

Smyth and Hemsky will be centered tonight by Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers 3, Coyotes 2 – Pre-season Game 6 – 2011-09-27 @ 7:00 PM MST – Webcast'»

Will the franchise be returned to Winnipeg as early as this month?

Will the franchise be returned to Winnipeg as early as this month?

So, many have been talking about the Coyotes potentially moving to Winnipeg. TSNs “The Reporters” addressed that topic today on the show. Here is what they had to say: Continue reading 'Panelists of TSN’s “The Reporters” confident Phoenix is Winnipeg bound..'»

PRE-GAME RANT

The picture above is of Chris Vande Velde, who makes his official NHL debut tonight. He was called up, along with centre Ryan O’Marra and winger Alex Giroux. Also previously called up was Teemu Hartikainen, who will also make his NHL debut tonight. By my count, Vande Velde and Hartikainen join a list that is now 8 7 players long of players who have made their NHL debut with the Oilers this year: Jeff Petry, Magnus Paajarvi, Taylor Hall, Linus Omark, Jordan Eberle, Shawn Belle, (snipped Belle because he actually played a few games in Minny and Montreal) Vande Velde, and Hartikainen. That also makes 11 different players that the Oilers have called up from the Barons (8 of them currently sitting on the Oilers team). Trogdor also reminds me that several ladies made their NHL debut with the Oilers this year as well: Octane.

I would not expect a pretty one, but it will be nice to get a closer look at Teemu Hartikainen, who has played quite well for the Barons this year. Chris Vande Velde has had his struggles, although his focus has been on the defensive aspects of his game. It will be good to get a close look at him too.

So now with these 3 call ups, the Oilers have an average of a shade over ONE whole full season played per player on their forward group (just over 2.5 for all skaters). Yikes. Sounds like Theo Peckham is close to a return, at least.

On to the fun stuff… the Coyotes are a mere 4-4-2 in their last 10, however 3 of those 4 wins came all in a row recently, as they’re on a 3-game winning streak. The Oilers are 4-5-1 in their last 10, looking at times like a team that wants to compete hard on one night, and a team that has no place in the NHL (mainly because it’s composed of AHLers) on other nights. We’ll see which one we get to watch tonight!

With any luck, this will also be the last time the Oilers ever play the Phoenix Coyotes (sorry Phoenixonians… Phoenixites… Phoenixers… whatever).

Prediction: 4-0 Coyotes

VERY GUESSTIMATED LINES

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers head on a short road trip with stops in Phoenix and Dallas before the Hemsky/Eberle-less All-star break. The Oilers have been on a horrible skid, allowing the Devils to catch up in standings. We currently sit 1 point higher in the standings (albeit with 1 game in hand). The Oilers are 2-7-1 in their last 10 while the Coyotes are 6-3-1 in their last 10. The Oilers have been playing some better hockey than their record would suggest, but when you’re a team this young, it’s hard to get over that hump that is the difference between a loss and a win in most games in today’s NHL. I think they’ll win this one though

Prediction: 4-2 Oilers

PRE-GAME RANT

After the desert dogs stole a win in our house, the Oil look to return the favor. Less than a week ago the Oilers led at home 3-0 by the Coyotes clawed their way back with 3 unanswered goals of their own to force overtime and eventually take the win in a shootout. Many Oilers have had their fathers accompanying the team on the short road trip and it seems to have worked so far after a road win in Ananheim. Another win, and they may have to hire them on permanently.
