GDB 58: A contest winner and a game night

After some arguing and debating over some fun and interesting promotional ideas, we have come up with a winner for the Oiler/Flames tickets. Congrats to Mrs. Cogliano with this post:

Promote Health and Awareness for “Cancer down there”….some proceeds could be donated to “the underwear affair” (A charity event being held in June), and everyone would be encouraged to show up in their underwear. Everyone who had a doctors note proving they had been for a check up in the last 2 months or so would get a discount, and if everyone shows up in their underwear, there has to be a world record in there somewhere! Plus, if you couple it with the KY give away, its a win win…because who doesn’t love free KY? Maybe it would spawn some wrestling matches… p.s. as a single female, hoodlum, did it ever occur to you that our plan is to find some idiot of a man who is going to buy our drinks for us all night, because he thinks we’re “lonely”, and we can go home knowing that we don’t have to sleep with him because he’ll be “too drunk” (read: unable) anyways, and in the morning we can just slip away with another hilarious story to tell our girlfriends?

Wanye wasn’t a fan of this one, which makes me wonder if he has ever seen a woman in lingerie. Surprisingly even the women judges liked it.

Bear Promotions guru Lacey: “I like this one because it involved charity, and anytime you tie that in a promotion it seems to work. But what I really liked were her comments about getting the guy drunk where he can’t perform. I like devious women.”

bingofuel sent this: “I love this one, and I HATE prostate exams. But it's a good tie-in with real-world charity events, it's for a great cause and it forces men to do something hilarious instead of women always being the object of jokes or ridicule. OK, I admit it, my mom told me to write that last part.”

So congrats Mrs. Cogliano! We will get in touch with you and I’m sure you will be wearing your #13 jersey on Saturday. As promised, I will submit the idea to the promotions department for the Oil-Cats, and then you and a few of your girlfriends will FOR SURE show up in Teddy or some sort of lingerie and be honoured for coming up with the idea.

On to the game...

The Colossal Fossil will start his 14th straight game tonight, and the Oilers’ offence will get boost when JF Jacques and his ZERO points in 53 NHL games will be on the fourth line with Brodziak and Reddox.

Red-hot Zack Stortini – when the kid has three goals in six games you can use Stortini and red-hot in the same sentence -- gets the promotion and will play with Moreau and Cogliano.

The Stars are without Brad Richards, their second-leading scorer, Brendan Morrow, their emotional leader and Oiler killer Sergei Zubov, yet they have won eight of 11 since the All-star break. The Stars PP is a scorching eight for 24 in their last six home games so the Oilers have to be disciplined.

Many Oiler fans are calling for revenge when any players get run by the opposition, so do the Stars get someone to fight Penner after he KO’d Landon Wilson on January 3rd? I hope so, because when the sleeping giant wakes up he can be an impact player.

Don’t be surprised if Barch and Strudwick mix it up again too. Strudwick was really pissed in January when they met and went after Barch early in the game, because Barch ran him from behind the game before. Even after the game Strudwick hinted he wouldn’t mind another shot. Hits from behind bother him more than anything and he seems to have a memory like an elephant, so if the Oilers need a momentum change I wouldn’t be surprised to see #13 and #43 go at it again.

While the Colossal Fossil is starting his 14th straight, he has nothing on Marty Turco who is starting his 28th straight tonight.

And for those who think Avery might help the Oilers ponder this, the Stars are 20-10-3 without Avery after starting the season 8-11-4 with him.

@ DK0: If you go on you tube and put "theo peckham claude lemieux" in the search there's a couple on there that you can see pretty clearly... i had to type that in and then go near the bottom of the page and click where it said "search again showing omitted results".. The one where you can see the WOOO clearly is posted by nhl(dot)com and THE M3DICIN3

So, I can't watch the game tonight (damned GF and her Grey's anatomy + Private Practice), so I am listening on the radio. Are the penalties that stilted in Dallas' favor?

Me and a buddy were talking last game about this, notice how the millisecond we lose the puck in the offensive zone we abandon ship as fast as possible? We never try to put some pressure and make it difficult for them to leave their zone

Instead of sucking it up and getting a powerplay the Fossil goes and stirs the pot. I hope we still have a man advantage after the scrum but I am doubtful.

@ jeanshorts:

I can't agree on that one. It was a penalized play that would have maybe given us a chance at winning this game. Instead we goon it up at the wrong time in the game and we aren't left with much chance for a comeback.

P.S - i'm all for gooing it up. But not when 2 points are on the line and a comeback is still possible. Timing is everything.

@ The Towel Boy:

As much as I dislike Moreau's penchant for horrendous penalties, this loss shouldn't fall squarely on his shoulders.

HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THE HITS. Jayman Master Builders must hate these kind of games.

Anyway, the whole team played terrible once again. For some reason this team can never, ever build on momentum from game to game.
