PRE-GAME RANT

Well, I’ll be at this one tonight (thanks to OG77, who will be going as well), but as always the GDT chat will be up. This one is on CBC tonight, of course, and is a later one at 8:00PM.

The Oilers have been riding a high as of late, sweeping their recent road trip in the east, and having won 4 of their last 5 games (they’re 5-4-1 in their last 10, which is pretty good for the way their season has gone). Right now they’re showing signs of improving as a team, but we all fear that they’ll soon return back down to earth. The top 3 scoring lines have all been clicking well though, and the defense has looked a little more defensive and a little less lost with some better help from the forwards. So it remains to be seen if this team has turned a corner or not. The Blues were a pretty tough team to start the year, but have gone on a 4 game skid. They are 3-7-0 in their last 10, so it definitely should be a game the Oilers can win.

Btw, Khabi gets the start tonight. He of course had a shutout in the last game, and stood on his head. He actually looked like the MVP that Tambellini thought he was. Too bad he can’t do that on a consistent basis.

Prediction: 4-1 Oilers.

O’Sullivan traded for Vandermeer

By , June 30, 2010 12:13 pm

As per TSN site:

The Edmonton Oilers continue to pare down their payroll for July 1, as the club has dealt forward Patrick O’Sullivan to the Phoenix Coyotes for defenceman Jim Vandermeer.

I like this deal. I didn’t mind O’Sullivan, and it looks like his buyout is still going on, but Vandermeer is a serviceable d-man who has experience and is tough. Plus he makes 600k less. He will make it so that our younger D have more time in the AHL to get experience.

I like it. As Lowetide says, we just got an actual NHL’er.

Update: As i just read in the comments, Moreau has just been claimed by Columbus (details here) and cause I’ve just been perusing TSN, McKenzie says that Souray could be headed to St. Louis with Brewer coming back (details here).

Good for Moreau, as I’ve always been a fan and he gets to play this final year. I’ve always liked Howson too, so I bet he can get a good year out of him.

As for the Souray rumor…I don’t mind it. Brewer can play, and while he is expensive he is a mil cheaper. If it works out it will be better than I expected on the return for Souray.

Tambellini is going to get a great off-season report card mark.

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers are coming off a loss to the Ducks and the Blues last played against the Kings on thursday taking the game 3-1.  The Blues are in the same boat as the Ducks.  That ferry boat heading over the ocean to an island for people to play golf on.  They’re still not mathematically out, but it would take some luck for them to get in.  They have struggled at home this year so this could be a close game today.  It looks like Gagner will resting the hip again, so likely not much changes in the line up.  Maybe that’s why no one is posting info about it anywhere.  I for one will be disappointed to not see Mason’s playoff beard this year.

PRE-GAME RANT

Going to keep this brief, as for one, there’s not much good to talk about these days. The Oilers are on a giant winless streak, and still looking for the first win of the new year. The Blues lost 3-2 to the Canucks last night. They are 6-3-1 in their last 10. For those that have wiped it from the memory banks, the last times the Oilers and Blues faced each other, the Blues won 7-2. So this could be another bad one.

Brain prediction: 5-3 Blues
Heart prediction: 4-1 Blues

Don’t think this will be the first win of the new year for the Oil.

Right now would be a great time for the Oilers to make another run and get back into the mix as we currently are rocking the last spot in the conference, plus if the laffs get more points than the oilers I shall have to eat a whole lot of crow, and I don’t want that.

That said, I think we have played the Blues pretty well the last few years.
