GDB 18: Motor City Madness

It’s not quite River City Ransom, and it hardly has the cache of Edward Furlong’s Academy-Award-not-even-remotely-being-nominated-for performance in Detroit Rock City, but some terrifying and eye-catching hybrid of the two is taking place tonight. On skates. And ice.

And you can bet your ass the Justice League™ will be paying close attention, watching for facial ticks and heated exchanges of words as MacT continues to grey at an alarming rate, and Dustin Penner sits comfortably in the press box. Meanwhile, the entire ‘Sphere speculates on both of those guys’ futures with the club (check Lowetide, Covered in Oil and BDHS for some good comments on those issues).

All this off-and-on-ice furor is the result of MacT’s positively scathing indictment of Penner’s performance and attitude in the Edmonton Journal. I’m not going to add to the crap storm here. I’m just going to cross my fingers, consume a 15-pack of Vitamin-P and hope for a checkmark in the W column.

Go Oil!

Bingofuel is the handsome cyborg who pulls all the levers behind the curtains of the OilersNation. When he isn't running the site, he's plugged into a wall socket, recharging. Or Brownlee and Wanye are playing "keep away" with him. He gets little to no respect.

I'm going to try and figure out the formula. Roli's in tonight, if he loses Garon will be next in line. But would a win tonight and a loss tomorrow mean Garon's turn has been skipped and they go straight to JDD?

There's too much math in this 3 goalie system.

You remember back in the 80's and even the 90's how much excitement and hype there was around Soviet players who wanted to defect? I think the NHL should bring a little of that back and implement a 'defection rule' into the system.

Picture it. Detroit on the rush. Hossa charging down the wing. He glances over to MacT, who gives him the wink. A subtle signal has an Oiler jumping back onto the bench as Hossa suddenly hits the brakes and heads back the other direction. Conklin looks first confused, then horrified as realization strikes home . . .

"Defection!"

But it's far too late. The Detroit defence is hopelessly out of position and the only thing between Hossa and the back of the net is the Oilers old cast-off netminder.

As Hossa buries a three-deke 5-star backhand, he is immediately surrounded by Boulerice, Huggy-Bear, and even SMac whose mysterious call-up is suddenly explained as Hossa is safely escorted to the Oilers bench amidst much wailing and gnashing of teeth from the Detroit contingent.

Ah, what it might be like . . .

So, it appears that every team in the league has figure out our PP. But why change it right? Let's just bench more people. That will solve everything.

Dear Craig MacTavish,

Detroit is going on the powerplay once again. You will note that they do more than simply passing the puck to the same defensemen and praying to Darryl Katz that it goes through.

Hugs and kisses for your pink parts,

I have a buddy who was in Detroits system at the same time Avery was coming up through the minors. In an exhibition game he told Brindamour that he should let his dog lick his face... not chew it. Funny stuff even for Avery, who should play corky on life goes on
