    Rebuild v4.0

    only way to rebuild is to fire everyone ; getting rid of the coach and gm is just the visible layer, not the deep down rot. You would have to get rid of all the former OIlers and that will not happen. Those are Katz's childhood heroes. Think about it ; would you fire your idol if the money was still rolling in. Katz thinks Lowe knows a thing or two about winning ... When Coffey was brought into the fold with no real assignment and Gretzky as an ... ambassador? I knew Katz was going the other way and affirmed my understanding of the organization's monumental infrastructure failing as an enshrined practice, not happenstance. No point even talking about this guys; ain't going to happen, period. Yes we have a new coach and yes we'll have a new gm, but the termites are still behind the gyproc.

    Oilers vs Hurricanes

    Canes are 7-3 in their last 10, but have lost their last two games. I think our boys will be dopy in period one, a natural reaction after such a close and emotionally charged Battle of Alberta. If we can be even or down one going into the second, we should have a good shot at this. Hurricanes have good D; I will be interested in seeing how our McD does against a tough challenge. Oil take a close low scoring one, maybe 3 - 2.
  3. watched the game but didn't comment until now. I said earlier; Caleb jones = 1 goal for them every game ; either he gets beat and that player scores, or he gives it away and they score. It's a daily experience. Is he really the best we have? Is everyone else out hurt? He has some potential but since he has come up he has been hurting us big time. Rattie gets the pressbox for giving away the puck in our end, but this Jones might as well shoot it in our own net once per game and he keeps playing? Other than my rant, good effort by our guys and we were there right to end. Excellent third period i thought. too much interference and roughing v McD. What the heck is going on out there?
  4. highlight reel winner of grabbing on McD ... his jersey was photoshopped out of the pic
  5. I think last game of Flames on tv he has 20 pts in his last 9 games. He is hot alright
  6. Not Manning Benning again. Pass that Hemlock over here ...

    Nuge isn't a slow skater, but he isn't a fast skater either ... his mobility makes him better than a half fast skater

    from DobberProspects.com Fantasy Summary Cave has a powerful shot and plays a sound two-way game. While he will likely never break through as a point producer in the NHL, he could find a home as a role-playing forward, capable of the occasional offensive outburst. I guess he is dressing tonite. I never like to see a player tossed in without the opportunity of a practice or two; the chance for an assignment faux pas always looms large and could cost a team big time. Hopefully Peterson will be playing tonite for Van; yes, I know our chances are greater if he doesn't play, but I admit that I am a selfish hockey fan and want to see the best players play. After our breakout game v Buffalo, our 3rd and 4th lines have solid games and we take this one. Go Oilers !

    GDT: SABRES @ OILERS 01/14/19, 7pm MST, SNW

    I haven't seen the kind of energy from our 3rd and 4th lines .... all season. A couple of non scorers finally scoring picked them all up. I am happy for them as individuals, and this might be the jumpstart we need if for some stroke of luck we can get some more 3,4 scoring in Vancouver and the negative mindset turns positive. On the flip side, even though we won by a large margin, our goalie was terrific on the many , many opportunities we allowed. Team D sucked, but what the heck, enjoy this one and see what happens tomorrow.

    100% ; don't change for the sake of change and a net + of zero. The only reward here is what might surprise us down the road.
