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.

Potulny has been good down there, as has Shremp, but Brule is putting up points too. I say it's Shremp as they need to answer that question sooner rather than later. Imagine Shremp with Cole?

Every team in the league has at least 4 ex oilers on it. And if they don't automatically start playing better for the rest of their career, they have all their best games against the Oilers. It's science!

Oh, just great.

And in case anyone missed it, Pierre McGuire broke the news a few weeks back that the Blue Jackets have this guy named Nash, and he's pretty good. So. Be on the look out.

If Rolli continues to make 30 plus saves every time he starts, and still can't buy a win, someone from is own team is going to get a face full of blocker.

This is after the commented on the lack of effort from the Oilers.

There cannot be too much time left for MacT. I find it hard to believe that he might finally be fired, but at this point how can you think anything else. I could see him being promoted to a different position within the organization almost.

In my opinion Hemsky and a few others need a different mind behind their bench. MacT's game is jus not offensive enough. Now the red wings are a powrhouse team and it honestly wasnt expected that we win thsi game, but the effort has been piss poor all f'n game

F MacT in his A.

"but the effort has been piss poor all f’n game'

And it's been like that all season. Even in some of the games that we won, we still had no jump. We just got lucky bounces or the other team somehow managed to play even worse than we did.
