GDB12: Logo: 1 Wanye: 0

So as you know, the Oilers play the Blue Jackets tonight in Columbus at 5:30pm MST. What you don’t know is that we have a terrible confession to make. We must warn you—anyone who thinks that we are a “sentient being” may not want to read on as we are revealed to be a blathering idiot.

Last night we were watching the election in the US—we will spare you the tale of how happy we are with the results—and the topic quickly turned to the Oil and the week ahead. We go to the main page of the Nation to see the upcoming game and we see this logo:

This was the exact moment when one of the most terrible realizations of our lives hit us in the face like a Mike Tyson uppercut--pre crazy days.

Ready for this?

For however long the Blue Jackets have had this god awful logo—we have believed it was the All Star Game logo. We are that stupid. “But Wanye, don’t you watch sports highlights?” Yeah we do, but whenever Columbus comes on the screen we generally let our mind wander to other topics like monkey knife fights and rocket shoes. Seriously, what happened to this logo?

What happened to the dink mascot “Stinger?” Is he still around?

Yep, life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and take a look around once in awhile—you could miss it. Why on Earth would Columbus adopt a near identical logo to the All Star Game logo? Is the NHL Logo Design Department™ seriously running that thin on ideas?

Logo Guy 1: “Hey Gary—we need a logo for Columbus and we need it stat! That dink mascot was just caught driving down (insert Columbus road name here) with a dead hooker in the trunk. He needs to disappear—and fast.”

Logo Guy 2: “Uh... Uh... (runs around in a panic)”

Logo Guy 1: “Damn it Gary—now isn’t the time for panic! We need a logo and quick!”

Logo Guy 2: “We could... uh... (soils himself under extreme pressure)”

Logo Guy 1: “Ok think Richard, think. (massages head) Remember your training. You are the creative force that designed all 14 of the Phoenix Coyotes logos. You know you have it in you somewhere to design quality logos in a fraction of the time.”

(Spies all star game logo on the wall.)

Yep, it must have happened just like that.

I hate you Columbus Blue Jackets logo. I hate you so much.

Smid hurt thanks to Raffi Torres. God, even after months of him being gone, he still plagues this team.

Mcdork " I thought with Souray and Vish they would be in top ten in PP...maybe top five...but look they are 12th...so clearly not good enough"

WTF...You said they should be top ten, and they are in 12th...which is like one goal difference...what a clown...

If I have to, I'm willing to go down to Pittsburgh and pee in their pre game meal. Or pee on all their equipment. Or pee on Mario Lemieux. Anything I have to so we don't have to hear it from those dirty mill workers at pensblog!

i don't care what the corsi numbers on gagner are, i don't care if he doesn't think sophomore slumps exist, and i don't care if people think he is getting chances. this player has been nothing but a negative to the oilers all season long. that last CBJ goal was a direct result of a terrible back pass to THREE columbus players. who the hell was he passing to? i have seen zero examples of skill, vision, integrity, jam or even passing interest come from Samantha. this player is turning out to be a big time floater on par with my latest bowl movement. mark my words, gagner will not amount to more than a shadow of what nilsson and cogliano will be. this guy needs to sit in the press box for a half dozen games and if that doesn't set him straight i would suggest bouncing him back to junior and calling up brule... this guy is a bum and will be a bum until someone in management gives his head a good shake and his ass a firm kick.

"mark my words, gagner will not amount to more than a shadow of what nilsson and cogliano will be."

When he gets 100 assists in February, I'm going to post this, and you can enjoy your crow sir!

But I agree he needs some kind of kick in the ass to get him going. The fact that Kyle Wellwood is playing better than him makes it hard for me to get an erection. And that's awful embaressing after I've already paid.

Just listened to MacT's post gamer. He's so pissed he can hardly put a sentence together. Completely singled out poor Sammy. I wouldn't be surprised if Sam spent the next game or so in the PB.

Dude. He's 19, and although far ahead of the curve he's still a kid.

Kids make mistakes. Sometimes big ones. But I bet nobody feels worse about it right now than Sam himself. However, I'd sit him in the PB next game just so he could get his head together.

fair enough, he is 19 and has a lot to learn about the nhl, but this doesn't mean he is above being criticized... particularly after a gaff like that. a second line player in the NHL should not be making plays like that, and in my opinion merits some strong words and action from the coach to help this lesson sink in. if he isn't producing, he at least shouldn't be failing as mightly as he is. a player like gagner if he isn't scoring is of little value to any team and with that in mind i say give some of the other kids a chance (brule, schremp, trukhno) on the second line until he can get this non-sophomore slump-slump out of his system.
