PRE-GAME RANT

So a couple of bits of news to get out of the way for the game day thread… one, Jordan Eberle is going to the All Star game! Normally I wouldn’t be too excited.. because the All Star game is crap. But it will give me reason to watch it. It’ll give opportunity for more showcasing of our talent here. I wish we had Hall or Nuge there too. The other bit of news is that the Nuge will NOT be at the All Star weekend. Oh well, no big deal. Also, if you hadn’t heard it, apparently the Oilers are going to very likely extend Steve Tambellini’s contract soon. That is disappointing, but I have been wondering if Katz, Lowe and Tambellini all had planned on tanking for at least this long ahead of time and decided that nothing would steer them off course. Are they here by design or by incompetence? It sure would be nice to know that for sure.

Anyways, tonights game will likely be unwatchable. I will watch it, because I am masochistic.

PRE-GAME RANT

Hooray! A team that is slumping almost as bad as we are. Half a season to go, but the Nurse Sharks are in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2002/2003. If anyone can rekindle their confidence, the therapeutic Oilers may be just what the psychologist ordered. The Sharks can clinch a sweep of the season series with the Oilers tonight if they can win at home.

Sounds like there will be no lineup changes from the Stars game, where the Oilers played good hockey but came up short. I’d blame the disallowed goal, but we weren’t the only team it happened to…

PRE-GAME RANT

Sorry for the late GDT, but today has been a busy, but very productive, day for me with Christmas shopping and acquiring a bed from one Mr. Trogdor and his wife. The Oil are riding a high after beating the Avalanche on Thursday. It was one of the better games I’ve seen all year, despite the Oilers being outshot 28-11 by period 2, and 37-24 overall. I thought the Oilers put forth a very honest effort in the defensive zone and were rewarded with the win. Gerber had some obvious rust at the NHL level, and played “hot potato” a few times tonight (his own words), but he was decent in net. The line of Hall, Horcoff and Eberle was magical yet again, as well.

My brain says the Oilers are going to get hammered tonight, but I’ll go with the heart prediction of 5-2 for the Oilers here.

PRE-GAME

So the Oil invite the Sharks into their territory for the first time this year. The Oilers are coming off a tough 4-2 loss to Minnesota… one that somehow slipped away, mostly due to a bad start to the game. I’ll be at the game again, so I’m hoping for a good one. And I think I’ll get to see a good one. I think the last game was very positive, and the team just has to take it that way and not get down on themselves and just do what they did Thursday… except maybe keep things more simple on the powerplay.

I’ll guess 5-4 Oilers.

PRE-GAME RANT

With the Oilers all but guaranteed to pick 1 or 2 now, things feel a bit more loose in Oiler-land. No more cheering for losses by anyone from this point forward. They currently sit 13 points behind the Leafs with only 11 games left to play. They’re finishing dead last. An interesting stat I heard last game is that in three of the 4 drafts since the lottery pick was instituted, the last place team has picked first overall. So the odds are in our favor to get who we want. From this point forward, let’s just hope for some exciting hockey that shows promise for next year.

The Oilers face the Sharks possibly at the right time. They’ve lost their last 4 outings. Nabokov has struggled since coming back from the Olympics (and consequently is ruining my pool numbers). The Oilers are coming off a tough win vs. the Red Wings on Friday in which they were unable to hold a 2-0 lead and were forced to go to the shootout.

Prediction: I will regret dressing Nabokov in the Yahoo pool…. 4-2 Oilers.
