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.

I cant believe JDD hasnt got a start this roadtrip. Roloson is almost 40 and if you just keep playing him like this hes likely to shit the bed every so often. My fearless prediction is that JDD sees action tonight after Roloson gets pulled.

Its amazing how much depth the stars have. Missin their 3 best players. It should be a easy game but it wont be. We will lose another one and fall deeper into the non playoff pack instead of gaining some seperatation. Typical day in Oil Country.

Jason,

What do you think of Darren Dregers list of 10 available players at the deadline, and naming the oilers as one team after Kovalev.....

Hmmmmmmm Let's see:

Butt-probing, underwear, prude passive-aggressive women, Geezer-stopper, excitement about 4th liners, Fights. Yup, must be the Oilers.

Note to Mrs. Cogliano - Do you ever actually "do it" and give it your all in enjoyment? Answer must be "No" considering your KY facination. Ease up, Girl and try to enjoy - it's natural.

I cant fathom what is going on in the mind of Mactavish when it comes to our goaltenders. Wouldnt it be a good idea to get JDD some game time NOW as opposed to 3 weeks from now when Roli is on his 25th start in a row?

why is everyone so surprised? Isn't this MacT's 87th year as head coach? He plays the hot hand all the time. As soon as Rolli stops looking super human JDD is going to be all over the ice. But as long as Rolli can still stand and stop pucks, he's getting the call.

Roli should get to kick Moreau in the nutz every time one of his lame-ass penalties causes a goal. This is seriously getting to be a, well... kick in the nutz.

Well, all I know is that Dreger said the Oilers are in some kind of Kovalev sweepstakes. But he also said that Ryan Smyth was the number one commodity at the deadline. So, take that how you will.

Exactly. JayBou is way bigger of a commodity than Smyth, and the only reason why they want to get rid of Smyth is to shed salary.
