PRE-GAME RANT

So we didn’t get to see Klefbom last night, but we should tonight. Arcobello was “sent down” (on paper) to make room, but he’s been told by the coach to find himself a place to stay. In plain english, that means he’s made the team. This is good news. In reality, he should be ahead of Sam Gagner. He should be the 2nd line center… at least the way Gagner has been playing. I’m sure Gagner’s slowed down by the broken jaw. He isn’t going to go in the dirty areas like he needs to for him and this team to be successful. So, for now at least, Gagner needs to be moved down the lineup, and Arco up the lineup. But that won’t happen tonight.

Bryzgalov played for the Barons yesterday. Looks like he got shell-shocked in a 5-4 loss. According to Jonathan Willis, though, only one goal was possibly his fault. So that isn’t as bad as it sounds.

Sad moment.. this marks the first time the team will see Ladislav Smid in another uniform. I still hate this trade. Urgh.

The team needs a miracle tonight. They are playing an equally crappy team in Calgary. Calgary is all work, with little skill to show… the Oilers are all skill… with some heart from many players, but with a great lack in common sense and tactics. Something’s gotta give here. Both teams are struggling. 2-1 SO win for someone? The Oilers are slump-busters for most teams… but the Oilers also spanked the Flames 8-2 the last time these two teams met in Calgary. So who knows.

In other, non-hockey news, tonight is another George St-Pierre UFC fight. Not sure what time that starts, but I’m really interested in that too. I think Johny Hendricks will be a tough opponent for him. I will likely attempt to watch both tonight. Hopefully the Oilers don’t let me know…. GSP? He never lets me down.

So… Let’s see what’s been happening as of late. We traded away a reliable stay at home D-man and a goaltending prospect for a better prospect and a unproven center so we could sign a somewhat unstable Russian. Maybe he’s the one who’s been whispering into Yakupov’s ear about passive aggressively requesting more ice time. Another heart and soul guy will be back on the ice, except this time he’ll be playing on the opposing team. Be kind Oil Country. You rode him out of town, don’t be classless and boo him on his return. Maybe we can pick something up from his work ethic.

At the very least the team has started putting the puck in the net again, coincidentally timed with Taylor Hall’s return. The PP numbers are up, but the GAA is still steady. The D still need to solidify and that’s team wide. If Bryz can recapture some of his greatness, it will take some pressure off, but he’s still in conditioning with Dubnyk starting tonight.

Should be a fairly open game with a lot of speed so hopefully Dubnyk plays like he doesn’t want to give up the starting role.

Line ups are a little less frightening tonight but Justin Schultz is still injured.
