GDB 51: Has the world gone crazy?

Well, loyal Nation readers, things don’t feel so hot here in Oil City, or really anywhere on this spinning ball of rock. Our boys in copper and blue play St Louis tonight. But they do so without Lubomir Visnovsky, who’s been placed on the IR list.

Meanwhile, Dustin Penner won’t complete (or even start) any checks, Sheldon Souray’s upset because he can’t find a decent hair jelly to maintain his quaff, Daryl Katz astonishingly owns the Cracker Cats now, and nerds are dressing up like Klingons and robbing the good citizens of the Federation down in the US.

What’s next? Zebras and Lions hugging? Fans NOT demanding MacT’s head on a platter? Brownlee cracking a smile? Amber McCormick finally agreeing to go on a date with me? My gods, what a terrifying world this place is becoming! Someone hit me in the face with a shovel, please.

So even though things are dire in the Nation right now, I’m going to predict a hard-fought Oilers win tonight. Sure, I know sweet tweet about hockey compared to Wanye Gretz and Robin Brownlee, but I know what my guts tell me: “Eat something, bingofuel. Something greasy. Good. Now type ‘Oilers will win tonight 3-2’.”

Oilers will win tonight 3-2.

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.

Is the kid fat? If he's fat he can probably skip a meal or two.

At least that's what daddy used to tell me...

The worst thing ever, was when baggedmilk and I were hanging out in Vancouver, and we got "stoned" and found out that KFC delivered. It was the greatest day of my life, until the next day when I had to crap it all out.

Hemsky just shot on a 2-on-1. Numerous play-by-play folks will disregard this and continue to say "Hemsky doesn't shoot" based on three year old scouting reports.

Fun question: given the makeup of this roster, is using Andrew Cogliano to centre a checking line (with Moreau and Reddox) a good idea?

I'm leaning towards no, since Cogliano's so valuable on offense and Brodziak's a good player, but I don't feel strongly about it.

It wasn't, but I did tune into the game five minutes late and for some reason my web feed is insanely choppy - what have I missed?

Wait a second. So, when Wanye doesn't post in here, it's deader than Brownlee's sex life. But when he does, it's lit up like a Christmas tree in here.

Does Wanye post in here under like 30 different names???? HMMMM??? I'M ONTO YOU GRETZ YOU SHAM!!!!!!

@ Travis Dakin: No way TD. Guaranteed if the Oil tank this season and do manage to get the #1 pick, we won't end up with a Crosby or Ovetchkin. We will get us a Daigle. Or a Patrik Stefan. That is what we are destined for.

Don't you know that by now?
