PRE-GAME RANT

Above is a pic from the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The guy on the left is Erik Gudbransson of the Florida Panthers. The Oilers would probably love a Gudbransson in their line up right now. Hell, they’d even love a Taylor Hall in their line up right now. But, they will get a Theo Peckham in their line up, courtesy of an Andy Sutton healthy scratch. This paragraph sounds very Gene Principe-esque. Anyways, I think they’ve got to really play a guy like him down the stretch so they can decide whether he’s going to be part of their long term future or not. With all the talk about improving our back end, some players have to go out for new ones to come in. So Teddy could be an option.

Devan Dubnyk also draws in tonight, expectedly since this is a back-to-back.

The buzz today in the Oilogosphere is over some interview Linus Omark had. Read more here. I can’t see how the Oilers would want to hang on to Omark after those comments. I do wonder though if he’s just a guy that has no clue how to say the right things, or if he really just marches to the beat of his own drummer. Either way, I’m thinking he’ll likely be moved before July.

As for the actual game, I’ll be watching this one on the PVR (if it is deemed worthy) as tonight also happens to be the first playoff game for the Oil Kings. Tickets for these games are DIRT CHEAP, and it’s arguably the best hockey you’ll see in Rexall this year. Steve-O, Trogdor and I will be rooting the home team on at this one tonight. I’m pretty stoked, to be honest.

Enjoy the game, folks!

PRE-GAME

Well, I will again be away, but this time I’ll be out for the thanksgiving weekend. I might be online, but I don’t think I will be… I will, however, definitely be watching the game. So I’ll get this GDT all set up, as well as the chat box. I’d suggest not using the chat box until some time on game day (since the chat box is refreshed after every game… good to have some comments for posterity’s sake. Anyways, enjoy the game and go Oilers!!!

Prediction: 5-1 Oilers. Either Hall or Paajarvi light it up on the scoresheet, this time. Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers vs. Panthers – Game 2 – 2010-10-10 @ 6:00 PM – SNET1'»

PRE-GAME RANT

So here we are now, the Oilers are on a TWO game winning streak. As unimpressive as it sounds, this is actually the first time in almost 20 games that they’ve been able to put such a streak together. Tonight, they face the Florida Panthers. Ales Hemsky always plays well against Eastern teams, so look for a good game from hi……. oh…… gawdamnit! Well, perhaps Brule can fill his shoes tonight. The Panthers, meanwhile, have only won 1 of their last 8 (and it was in a shootout).

Ok, time for my heart/brain predictions. I feel pretty good about this one, because I think the new Oilers play well against teams like this. My heart is saying 6-1 Oilers. My brain is saying 4-2. Post your predictions in the comment section. Continue reading 'GDT – Edmonton Oilers 3, Florida Panthers 2 (SO) – Dec 7, 2009 @ 5:30 PM – SNET – Game 30'»

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, its been a while since I’ve been able to put anything up here due to vacation, hockey games, concerts and work being stupid busy but I figured that I’ll give Racki a break and take care of today’s game day thread.

I don’t know what the lines are yet, I’ll post them when they are known (aka when I know what they are).
UPDATE: LINES HAVE BEEN UPDATED. Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers 4, Panthers 0 – Pre-season Game 3 – 2009-09-18'»
