GDB22: Another Matinee

Wanye
November 28 2008 10:37PM

What could be more exciting than a matinee game against the St. Louis Blues? How about an Oilers team that could very well lose the game?

We don't know what to make of this squadron. What happened to the team that was going to come in first in the Northwest? What happened to the team MacT basically told "don't be too confident lads. Take 'er as she comes" a few short months ago? The Oil got 99 problems and over confidence ain't one.

What happened to the team that made us buy Oilers Pyjamas and A Dustin Penner Snuggle Bug Teddy Bear? (trademark pending)

The only thing more exciting this game is, well pretty much everything. So of course we will be watching.

Damn you Oilers. You had better win.

And it had to be on Wayne Gretzky Drive of all things...

It's sad when the most entertaining thing that has been near Rexall Place all year has been a squeegee fight.

Insert any of the following excuses:

a) road game b) matinee c) poorly cooked chicken in pasta d) fans in Edmonton are a-holes e) Peter Pocklington's devil spirit

Nice two-chance rush there by Pouliot. It's good to see. Also, look how much more Brodziak looks like an NHL'er when he's playing with NHL'ers.

Although it really wasn't much of a fight. Horc played the roll of giant hanging piece of meant Rocky used to punch and Penner continues to chew on.

Roli should learn how to control a rebound. You would think after 75 years in the league someone would have taught him.

So I guess Rolli just needed to stop those first 28 shots before he felt warmed up. NOW he's ready to play. Too bad the rest of the team won't catch up till late in the third.

I am guessing MacT wasn't hoping to start the game down 0-2 with another slow start. There is no excuse for 22 consecutive slow starts.

That's awesome. I call Roli crap, and out comes the save of the game.

Did you know that Hemsky is Czech for "garbage"? What a worthless, useless player. He shouldn't even be on the ice. Looks totally outclassed.

Yeah, but really, we should give him another 20 games though, just to make sure.
