GDB 63: Oilers vs Preds

predator

The only thing busier than the OilersNation as trade deadline approaches is me as I write a GDB while I do my show.  That damn Wanye, how can I do two things at once? Oh yeah, the the Oilers play the Predators tonight too.

Liam Reddox draws in on the 1st line and Penner is slotted on the 3rd line with Cogliano and Pisani. Wow this won’t upset the NATION in the least will it? I like Reddox’s energy, but unless he proves me wrong I just wonder why he is there.

It is interesting, though, that yesterday Steve Ludzik said in my show "Penner’s abilities don’t fit on the first line. He isn’t fast enough nor does he makes the quick little plays. He isn’t a fit on the first line.” But I will put it out to the Nation: is Reddox that much better? I guess we will see tonight. Remember the first time he replaced Hemsky on that line not Penner, so that line will have an entirely different look against the Preds. J.F Jacques is in tonight on the 4th line and Pouliot will stay on the second line. Nilsson sits again it looks like -- trade bait or dog house? Only time will tell.

I understand putting Jacques in because of size, but Pouliot over Nilsson again is perplexing. Granted Nilsson has done nothing lately, but neither has Pouliot, and in my mind Nilsson still offers more than Pouliot, especially when neither are bringing much to the ice right now.

I think they need to take a picture of MacT at any time during a game and place that picture beside the word "bewilderment" in the dictionary.. No definition would be required.

ain't no joke. Rolli once again drops his stick, flops like a fish, and cries for a penalty, then rips his mask off. If you haven't seen this movie before you haven't watched a game.

He took a puck to the clavicle. You'd better hope it isn't broken because 19 games of JDD would make most of us here suicidal.

1) learn to skate 2) go to an outdoor rink and take a shot off any part of your body 3) then pretend that shot was 60mph harder from an nhl player. 4) when you actually have played hockey and know what a shot feels like maybe you will grow up and realize roli is human too. 5) Its very easy to sit on your couch and bitch that hes a pussy.

Has Sabourin even played in Springfield yet? Anyone know how he's doing? WILLIS???

And Garon is just as crappy in Pittsburgh as he was here. People need to get over him. He had one good season last year.

If he took one on the clavicle and he dropped his stick, it's very possible he broke it. At the very least, hurts like a b*tch.

Your a joke! SeanS is already eating you for a snack so I wont go there. Why dont you ask your self why Souray never went down to block ,or attempt to block! or why even struds was on the F N ice in O.T.! there where many factors that contributed to the loss............ IF YOUR EVEN AN OILER FAN!!!you better hope his collar is in one peice!! Think before you burp a fart!!!Harlie

@ David S: @ Bruno: @ SeanS:

if he was as hurt as you all think then why in the hell didn't he just lay on the ice? instead he gets up and displays excellent lateral movement and then gets scored on and rips off his mask and tosses it 30 feet and THEN clutches his shoulder. If he is/was legitimately hurt in that play then why did he just NOT get up? Thats the part I'm bitching about. Why get up? Seriously?? If he doesn't get up the Ref calls the play we're still in the game.

Because if you ever played a sport you would know this, you never give up on anything if you have anything left in you then you try and play... All thats going through his mind in that split second is f*ck that hurt oh sh*t they are shooting again I need to make a save.

Lots of examples in sports of people playing with broken, dislocated, big time injuries... Its called adrenaline.

Exhibit A: Tiger Woods

FYI - Roli threw his mask in disgust, AFTER the goal.

The refs shoulda called the play dead when he was doubled over, after he got hit. My guess is that's half the reason he was so ripped afterwards. Half mad at himself and half mad at the refs for not blowing the play dead on the spot.

BTW - It's not instinctive for any high-level athlete to give up. You'd know that if you ever were one.

You sir, are an idiot. Get a clue, watch a game and dont just talk like you know what your talking about. How many time has Rollie asved our ass this year? He needs a break, and JDD BETTER be in for the rest of the trip.
