GDB 12.0: COYOTES

Wanye
October 26 2013 12:49PM

 

The poor and sickly Phoenix Coyotes (6-3-2) play the Mighty Edmonton Oilers (3-7-1) today at the gentlemanly hour of 1 PM. There are only so many ways you can write about a last place Oilers team needing to pick up the pace and climb back into the thick of things. 

Here goes attempt #405,606.

AN ETERNITY OF WAIT

Is this all there is to look forward to as an Oilers fan? Getting up at the crack of noon to cheer on a last place Western Conference team against the crappy Coyotes who are somehow or other 6th place in the West despite being 1000 fold crappier than the Oil on paper?

No. One has to keep the faith against all odds that there is more than this in store for us. One has to believe the Oilers won't always be playing sub .500 hockey losing games they should win and forcing the perpetual witch hunt among Oilers fans trying to figure out "WHOSE FAULT IS THIS?! I WANT HEADS ROLLING DOWN STREETS DAMMIT"

The Oilers are far better and still losing than other seasons when they were frankly just bad and losing. It's a far different matter to be cheering for the first pick overall in the 2012 entry draft to turn around a slow start than expect Ryan Potulny to forget he is Ryan Potulny and lead the team out of the darkness.

We will all watch every Oilers game for the next 50 years regardless of result and they know it. It will come around we just have to sit tight and wait. 

*taps foot expectantly*

LINEUPS - GOOD GUYS

According to our newest friends over at DailyFaceOff.com the Oilers lineup is as follows this afternoon:

And the defensive corps will breakdown like so:

And finally the Oilers have elected to start LaBarbera in between the pipes against his former club.

LINEUPS - BAD GUYS

Given their brutal skill, low compete level and poor odour the Coyotes don't even go to the trouble of announcing their lineup prior to puck drop at their website. Luckily we can go back to DailyFaceOff who somehow figures these things out with uncanny accuracy.

HAHA you call that a lineup? BizNasty is still in the league? Antoine Vermette? How old is he like 145? This is gonna be a beat down of epic proportions.

Who the hell are any of these people? If we passed David Schlemko in the street we wouldn't cast him so much as a sideways glance. No no, these poor examples of NHL players won't have a prayer against the Mighty Oil this afternoon nor will Mike Smith - tasked with the unenviable duty of keeping the biscuit out of the basket for Phoenix this afternoon.

Good luck with that buddy.

*spits on the ground*

LOOKING AHEAD...

GAME DAY PREDICTION: The Oilers win 6-2 with Jordan Eberle netting two wonderous goals.

OBVIOUS GAME DAY PREDICTION: The Oilers not picking Shane Doan in the 1995 Entry Draft will not go unnoticed by the announcers who will point out the stellar career Doan has gone on to have in the desert for what must be the millionth time.

NOT-SO-OBVIOUS GAME DAY PREDICTION: Steve Kelly, tired of the MSM calling him out year after year for not measuring up to the career of Shane Doan boycotts the NHL in its entirety for the next 30 years. No one notices.

So lets sit back and enjoy the match shall we? Win or lose lets all just sit back and take in the spectacle of it all. Hits, fights, cheers and the odd goal here and there if the Hockey Gods allow. Speaking of spectacles give the Ohio State marching band moonwalking across the field a quick look. It's pretty sick.

I think that I finally figured out what's ailing our PP..........it seems that we have forced all the PP players to sign a no shoot clause.

Just how many time do we have see the puck being toured around the perimeter before someone finally gets a shot off?

It's good to see that DE system working so effectively on the PP, PK, and five on five. I think we will be fine in about 20 to 30 games by that time everyone should have figured out his system.

The management/ownership team will take notice once the rink stops selling out every game. And if the fans that do show up take a page out of the leafs book and wear paper bags over their heads.

To the fans who live in EDM. Stop going to the games and the right people will start to notice.

So your logic is we have enough guys the suck defensively.The leading goal scorer on the Oilers has 4 goals all year .They same amount Omark had his last game.I'm sure he could suck as bad defensively as say Yak who has no goals all year.

Bring him up.What do you have to lose, maybe the PP gets going.

Fine, no problem, if O'mark comes up than maybe Yawnapov can go down and prove he's got the Midas touch as well. If it helps us win im all for it, though I'm quite sure it will take a hit or two and Sir Omark will disappear into the shadows just like the Yak.

Considering what it costs me to go to a game, no I will be there, tho granted the bag thing sounds like fun but not at 7$ a beer. Thus the problem, no matter how much we bicker/bitch kLowe and friends will turn both a blind eye and a deaf ear to the true problem. Like most crown corps until they privatize(CEO..Lowe.. has directors to answer to) nothing will change and old 6 rings will flaunt his greatness for all to see on HNIC. Yuck, do every one a favor Kevin and find a new company to destroy!!!

Dude it's great being an Oil fan...but if you're not a fan of the game and the talent we've grown to watch and appreciate, stop blogging. You are starting to sound like a Leafs fan.

This is total garbage. We play like total crap. The third Coyotes goal there were three oilers in front screaming Labarbra. It's no secret. Just throw the pick to the net against the oilers. If it can't make it into the net, don't worry thoilers will find a way to put in in them selves!

Eakins should have stuck with his instinct to pull a goaltender fighting the puck and not let him convince him out of it. Lesson learned for a rookie coach, I hope. That being said, the Oilers gotta stay out of the box especially with a PK as bad as theirs. Still, I feel like this was a game Dubnyk could have had in the bag.

Im confused. And it's definitely not the amount of beer/rum which I was once again forced to consume due to another Oiler performance. When Gadzic arrived, he was like a pitbull trained to fight, attack anything that got in his way, now he seems like like a puppydog going thru potty training. Im not picking on him, but every tough, hardnosed, in your face kind of guy we've seen in the last 7 years has been trained(broken) of what got them their jobs in the first place. Eager, Hordichuck, Bigmac, changed and watched their careers end(basically), those who resisted were moved:Torres,Chimera,Brodziak. Maybe kLowe should go back and watch videos of McSorley,MacClellan,Semenko,Hunter,Jackson,etc. to remind him of WHO really were the reasons behind why 99,17,9,77 were able to do what they did. It certainly wasn't because of #4 hooking,holding, interfering 'cause he was caught flat footed constantly that gave them the space on the ice or gave fear to the opposing forwards in front of our net.

The accomplishments of KLowe, MacT, Bucky, Smith, Acton , and the hangers on in the scouting ranks (Sammy? ) are bring tarnished, if not forgotten, with the pathetic results so far. Playoff race is over already. Let Eakins bring in his own assistants. Get a goalie in here. Target a legitimate 1or 2 D-Man and make a hockey trade. This whole thing is sinking fast.
