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.

JS- I agree. MacT has been given leeway that no coach in the league has had in many years.

Only if Pat Burns grows back his mid 90's mullet.

John Tortorella has become soft on TSN, but I would love to see him yelling expletives at Brownlee during a post game media scrum.

Marc Crawford still reeks of Vancouver.

Ted Nolan would probably fit in well, what with all his cousins living in and around Edmonton.

You know whats sad? Is Mac T knows. He knows the clock is ticking and he must be so mad/sad, that the most talent he's had the honor to coach aren't playing in front of him........

And, no. I wouldn't be surprised to see MacT last until at least the all star break. Depending on how far into the red the team is at that point that is.

14 0f 19 on the road and we're three points back of first in the division.

If the team were working hard we'd be happier.

Well, luckily for Pisani, he doesn't have to worry about making a triumphant comeback and winning the Masterson Trophy, because someone from the Eastern Conference is going to get strep throat or something and battle through that, and clearly be more deserving of it.

I saw someone get hit along the boards, he came to a dead stop and skated slowly back to the bench holding his shoulder. I only saw an 8 on the jersey, someone else said it was Gagner
