PRE-GAME RANT

So, the first game of the post-Dustin Penner era (sorry about the painful photo above…). I fully expect it to be pretty rough. It’s not every day you lose your top scorer (although Hall was tied) in a trade and don’t gain any scoring back. I haven’t heard of any call ups to replace Penner, although Petiot was called up to help the blueline, in Peckham’s absence. He’s still seeing stars after being KO’d by Nathan Horton. Who knew he could fight?

Anyways, I think this one will be a decent one. The last time these two teams faced each other, the Oil won 4-0. I’m hoping for another good outcome, despite the great loss of #27.

Prediction: 3-2 Oil

Sorry for the late GDT thread everyone! The Oilers head into Nashville tonight. The Predators are 5-4-1 in their last 10, while the Oilers are an abysmal 1-8-1, although the effort has generally been there.

I think the Oilers almost had one against the Jackets, and just let it get away. But I can’t see the Oilers winning this one.

Prediction: 4-2 Predators

Again, the Oilers face another team that have a polar opposite last 10 record. The Oilers are 2-8-0 in their last 10, while the Predators are 8-2-0. The last Oilers loss, against Dallas, was a tough pill to swallow as the Oilers came flying out of the gates and looked to be in it all the way up to the 3rd period where the Stars came out to shine.

This should mark the return of Jim Vandermeer, BTW. He was playing some great hockey when he went down to injury, but I hope he can pick up where he left off. Sounds like Dubnyk will get the start, as Khabibulin missed the last two practices with an “unknown ailment”. That will likely give the Oilers a better fighting chance, the way both of these guys have been playing lately.

The Predators are a strong team right now, and have some great goaltending, so it’ll be a tough one to win.

Prediction: 3-2 Predators (SO)

This should be as exciting as the last game we all watched!

POST-GAME RANT

Well, back to the grind. This should be fun. I wonder how the team will play this close to the trade deadline. I bet we see a lot of slacking and disinterested play. I also bet that Grebber Grabber has an outstanding game, and lights us up for 4 points.

But we will win 5-4.

And now for Racki-stats:

PRE-GAME RANT

Fresh off the 4-day mini camp, the Oilers are looking for a clean slate. Lubomir Visnovsky (who returns tonight) had this to say about the mini-camp: “We’ve been able to put in new systems and better systems during this mini camp. Hopefully, it’ll be like a new season, because the last season was very bad.” I’m not sure how well this mini camp will work, but Quinn reportedly was unimpressed by the way the lines ran the powerplay. The thing I am optimistic about though is that if this doesn’t work, there’s nowhere for anyone to hide.

The Oilers are an awesome 1-11 in their last dozen games. If anything, I feel a bit of pity for the team and want to see the mini camp work for them. Damn you, high draft pick. The Predators are 7-5 in the same period. They beat the Canucks last night by a score of 3-2. I’m not expecting much from the Oilers tonight, but in a way I’m hopeful that the reset button worked for them… Hall/Seguin/Fowler wishes, aside.

Brain: 5-2 Predators
Heart: 4-3 Oilers
