I'm sure the boys are glad to be out of town. At least nobody will be throwing stuff at them.

As bad as the finish in the last game was - took the wind right out of me - I'm hopeful tonight that we get past that (like a bad taco going through the system).

Apart from sitting out spare players, Hitchcock is not using the press box to send messages to players.  If we want any chance of stemming crappy play on the ice, we have to be serious and consistent about the message. 

GO OILERS !!!!!!!

Thanks for the GDT, Fogolin.

I’m wondering if we can start playing survivor with the team? Who will be voted off the island after tonight’s game? More than likely, no one will be traded or bought out or waived.

Good question, VO.  I don't see trade values for many of the players but waiving some players might help (eg. Benning).  We have hurt ourselves with contract buyouts and probably should avoid that until we have some cap flexibility (we're still paying $1.6 m for Pouliot and Gryba). 

But changes must be inevitable.

If the Oilers win tonight Fogolin2 will have to take over as the official GDT artist .

They have to win this for Talbot ,  the problem with that is ,  I'm not sure they give a crap about Talbot .

Looks like they've put a fork in Hitchcock too .

The Gryba buyout still boggles my mind. Burying the contracts, eating salary, or taking pennies on the dollar are the only way out of some of these. We can’t afford 1:1 swaps of bad contracts, even if the term is shorter. I’m so soured on the 1:1 deals. I think I’ll get on NHL19 and see if I can make some Chia deals and see how the AI grades it. If the AI can spot a sucker deal over PC well then we can use a video game for GM. Just kidding. 

Maybe

High fives and drinking are what I do. I'll take the mantle if we win.

Koivu is out for the season as of last game, so maybe we'll catch the Wild sorting out their lineup without their captain. Or, maybe they come out and 'win one for the Gipper'

we'll see

It appears Chiarelli couldn't have messed things up better..... even if that's what he was trying to do in the first place .

You know that Justin Trudeau changed certain Canadian laws to account for the Oilers, don't you?

Well, hopefully he won't be on the ice for ALL the goals against.....AGAIN! 

Talbot might be though! 

I think Hitchcock has been told to play Talbot and keep him in as long as he can before the NHL realizes they are tanking. Holy Cow and the Oilers are going into next season with Koskinen......... think about that!

I don’t think so. I think the team/hitch want to get a game back for Talbot.

I haven't decided yet if I will watch this game or PVR it and fast forward through it after pouring back a few.

History vs. the Wild does not breed confidence and neither does recent history vs. other teams.

   I don’t think the organization will try and lose on purpose they want to make the playoffs it’s about money 

 They’ve never tanked on purpose they lose out of sheer incompetence

Lucic-McDavid-Rattie hahahahahhaaaa

Rieder-Draisatl-Chiasson

Khaira-Nugent Hopkins-Kassian

Cave-Malone-Puljujarvi

Klefbom-Larsson

Nurse-Russel

Manning-Benning

That first line lasts one shift. Or less.

 

the real beauty?!...the 2nd PP unit

Lucic-Khaira-Rattie

Klefbom-Benning

Hope Klef is ready to cover. That group could give up a couple shorties

No kidding, how ridiculous are these lines? Lucic and Rattie play with the best player in the league. Rieder with zero goals on the second line. Cave, Malone, Benning and Manning aren’t even NHL players. This lineup is atrocious and don’t even get me started on the 2nd pp unit, it’s utterly laughable

McD has 78% of the goals and points of the first line. There are TWO other NHL players on the first line. 

hahhahahahhaaaa..I'm actually kind of excited to see it. I seriously have no idea what it's going to look like. It'll get me to tune in through the first set of line changes anyway.
