GDB LVI: Wild On Hockey

Sweet sassy molassy!

Two in a row. A pair. A deuce. A duplet. Twins. Free the Springfield Two. No matter how you say it, it doesn't change the fact that the Oilers are on a winning streak. Which is great. Kind of.

I don't know about you guys, but as I watched the game last night (and monitored the comments on the site for typical game-day shenannies) I had such mixed feelings on Potulny's goal. On the one hand, it's nice to win a second game in as many match-ups. On the other, we certainly don't want to make a habit out of this if a rebuild is what we're planning (and by "we," obviously I mean "the fans." I have no clue what Tambo's up to other than sobbing into a wad of tissues while sitting on the toilet, for some reason).

Like many of you, I'm thrilled to see Gagner bringing his A-game, and like some of you, I'm also glad to see Mike Comrie on skates. It gives me a more valid excuse for my multiple daily visits to hilaryduff.com. Doesn't it?

Wild times

Tonight, the Mighty Oil take on the Wild, and like every other team in the NHL other than Carolina, these guys are better than us. They have nine more wins and 6 fewer losses than us. That's not a lot to be proud of.

But we have two wins. In a row.

Minnesota has two injured goaltenders. And the Oilers have two guys named JDD and DD that they dress up like goalies and place in front of the net every now and then.

Actually, Minnesota seems to be suffering from a similar injury bug to the Oilers, so maybe we have the advantage there. Looking at the stats comparison on the Oilers' website, it seems to be one of the few things we might have to our advantage.

But, as Jonathan Willis won't tell you, stats aren't everything.

Prognosticating...

I looked that word up. It's something psychics do. It means "guessing." And I'm going to treat you to my own special brand of prognostication.

The Oilers have realized the season's in the tank. They have two "Ws" in hand, and at least some of the guys are starting to enjoy just playing the game. Comrie's back, Hilary's website is rad, Sam Gagner likes to play with pucks after practice, and there's a chance Ethan Moreau's headed out of town.

So they're going to make it three in a row.

Tonight.

Against the Wild.

2-1 Oil. Book it.

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.

Anyone else miss sitting at home on a Friday night and watching Wild On in your room with the TV down really low so you didn't wake up your parents, and getting "excited" because of all the boobs they showed?

Just me and Wanye?

I had a comment locked and loaded about fapping to Ms.Asner in her standard issue yellow bikini, but thought it inappropriate

thanks for telling me what I did when I was 15 was ok, even though my therapist disagrees

By the time Brooke Burke became the host, I discovered free Internet porn. Really was the beginning of the end for my favorite teenage show

After Gene learned to cook from Gumby he looks like he turned his game around, maybe Gene should learn to cook from Penner so that he can turn his game around.

"Well Gene, after we fry up the donair meat we then place it on top off the steamed pita with cheese. After this we add the lettuce, onion and tomato that I chopped up earlier. We finish this off by drizzling tzatziki sauce over top it, roll it up and enjoy." Penner

"Mmmm this is delicious, you can come cook for me anytime Dustin!" Gene

Did I hear right ? The oilers sent Dubnyk back down to the minors ! Now this is the kind of thinking that really scares me about this managent group going forward. What would the sense of this move be ? What would be so wrong in a two game rotation wtih Jd and Dd. I would say to spend the remainder of this season with these two prospects and clearly figure out which goes and which one stays. I'm continually amazed by such mismanagement when it comes to our goaltending situation. Hmmm come to think of it. Is it really a surprise ?

What they might be doing is giving him time in the minors. I think they have decided on what goalie they want for next year, so maybe it's Dubynk, and they are showcasing Desauliers for a trade.

I think I filled my quota of hot chick talk when I commented on Internet porn, Jules Asner, and the ice girl on Gregors last blurb.

You're just late to the party is all

and for the record, does talking about Tom Gilbert, count as talking "about girls"?

Why?

I would trade Moreau for Kovy. That's a better deal than Atlanta got.

Wouldn't it be great if the Devils traded Kovalchuk at the deadline.
