OILERS BEAT COLUMBUS 145-0

If you are new to the Nation this is how we have celebrated landslide victories since 2007. Give a listen on maximum volume and enjoy having this song in your brain banana for longer than you will care to admit.

There are several things to be pumped beyond measure about tonight.

THING ONE - POINT NIGHT

 No fewer than 11 players had points for the Mighty Oilers tonite including Perron who led the way with 4. That's unreal.

THING TWO - DUBNYK

 

This guy here got a shutout with Bryz sitting calmly on the bench. Talk about pressure. Good on you DD.

THING THREE - SMYTTY

 

Smyth had 3 points! THREE NATION! WHAT A HERO WHO CARES IF PERRON REFERRED TO HIM AS OLD IN THE SECOND INTERMISSION AHAHAHAHAHAH

*wipes eyes*

We all needed this. The Oilers needed this. It is a rare shaft of heavenly light in an unhealthily dark situation so far this year. So listen to ghost ride the whip. Call friends you haven't talked to in years. Suddenly the DJ Suitcase ugly sweater Christmas party on Friday is going to be a real shindig. Buy your tickets here in support of the ICCP.

We will personally buy you a bucket of Jack Daniels and we can discuss the win for ever and ever amen.

In the meantime let's shower the comment section with unreasonable optimism and enjoy every minute of it,.

Can't believe i passed up a free ticket to that game cause i'm fat, old and lazy on cold nights. Was the most fun i've had watching a game in a long time.

Did anyone else notice that Belov and N. Shultz didn't want anything to do with th puck? They both held the offinsive blue line well, especially Belov, but both of them could not wait to get rid of the puck, couldn't get it off thier stick fast enough, and it almost bit them. Belov looked lost in the D-Zone, and couldn't decide what to do with the puck.

Hope it gets addressed on Wednesday and fixed for Thursday. 3 in a row would feel pretty good.

Nice to see the lop sided win as Oiler fans and surely the team gets a much needed morale boost from it. Coaches try to take out some of the high from wins and some of the low from losses, to focus on issues that lead to a steady progression and a playoff spot. Unfortunately too many lows and not enough highs to process thus far and the playoffs are out of the question. So - Eakins is forced to preach and lead progression toward a playoff spot - next year. It wont be an easy leadership task because maintaining hope for the playoffs, is a major motivation for players that any Coach would wish to keep in the mix. Cant help but think that Eakins misjudged the change process from the onset, trying to bite off too much change - too soon. Probably should have run with familiar systems particularly with d zone coverage and special teams, focusing as much as possible on the team getting off to a strong start. His systems - his way, could have been eased in over time because it created a lot of player confusion, horrifying GA's (wasnt just goaltending) and a lot of lost hockey games. While the team is not yet built to be a legit playoff contender, it is good enough to have challenged for what should have been an interesting playoff run this year - probably falling short in the last couple of weeks of the season. Out - in mid Nov - should not have happened. It was avoidable.

good point. So somewhere btwn 100 and 110.

The underlying takeaway is that the difference between east - west is about as big as it has ever been.

To reach 105 points, the Oilers would need to go 41-9-9.

Nothing a 40 game win streak won't fix.

Anaheim, St Loo, and San Jose are all better than the Black Hawks. All four are miles better than any offering from the east though.

Have to admit, Phil surprises me. A good case why you DON'T give up on high draft choices. Even the twins were average til mid twenties.

Lowe gets too much hype about the challenges. Agreed though that the failure axe needs swing his way next.

Nice win Oil.

I know the playoffs are already out of reach.

I know the team has serious holes that need to be addressed.

But can't we just savor a long overdue domination of another team?

Many on this site equate a measured response with perpetual negativity. Manic Depressives are such a PIA...

Ever revel in the warmth of a ray of sunlight breaking through the clouds during a crappy weather week? It doesn't matter that it's going to be swallowed up within minutes, or seconds, by that tumultuous mass that momentarily let its guard down. It doesn't matter that you might not see the sun again for several more days. What matters is how damn good that sun feels right at that very moment. What matters is the memories it evokes of bygone days of clear skies and pleasant times. What matters is how that ray of sunshine gives you hope that there are more like it to come. Maybe not soon, but eventually... those clouds can't last forever now, can they?

Maybe quit trying to be such a d!ck and pay attention to what you are reading. That's not what is being said at all.

You are more embarassing by polluting these forums with your ENDLESS negativity.

Not true!

Sometimes it's whoever has just made a trade, or drafted a player, or hired a coach or GM or anything really.

Basically anything done by any team not-Oiler is a good move.

DSF practices a kind of idiosyncatic "everybody's a winner (except Oilers)" approach to life.

If you posted his exact posts on a forum for any other NHL team, fans would think he was some kind of smothering mommy blogger cooing away bruises, but with a child's strange and reactionary hatred for the Oilers.

Hawks had one bad game last night but are still reigning cup champs and are the top team in the standings and somehow aren't the best?

Yes, really.

Rationale?

Start with road records, GF / GA, last year is last year, hunger vs complacency. The list continues.

This has to be a feel good game for the players, however fleeting it may be!Hope this gives them confidence that shooting and going to he net may get you some goals. Look at the beauty by Perron, second time in two games he threads the needle in the upper shelve.

YOu take the win, and build for the next game. This was a sleepy Jackets team... you can tell, even our 4th line looked like they might be from and NHL team.

Negative.... the blue line was still not that great, many turn overs, and a lot of panic scrambles.

It was nice seeing the Oilers dominate. Watching Yakupov play up to his potential and dominate. Watching Perron pop 2 goals in and even Smytty batting one out of the air.

We have the opportunity to beat Florida, Chicago (unlikely), Nashville and Columbus to continue the upswing.

However, the truth of the matter is, we are still a bad team. Changes still need to be made to the top 6, the top 4 and maybe goaltending.

We still need Lowe gone. Forever.

Can we just stop mention KLowe for a day? Just a day after a dominating win?

Didn't you ever learn in English class how to find the underlying message in any given piece of writing? He's not saying the Oilers are the Red Wings, he's just saying that all teams have their struggles, so before we jump to conclusions we should see how this season pans out.

The Oilers need to win at, what, a .690 pace (38-16-5 or equivalent) the rest of the way to get a playoff spot if 95 points is the cut off?

Nobody in their right mind believes that is going to happen. This season is over. The conclusion has not only been jumped to. It has been picked up, taken home and put to bed. It's over.

Re: the projected 110 pt cutoff.

I suspect that that number will be much lower - more like 98-100 pts. It seems to me that there has been a lot of east vs west games played already and far fewer remain relative to the number of in-conference games. Thus fewer wins vs losses and for every win in a west vs west game another western team gets a loss.

That said the oil will have to play out of their minds from here on just to crack the top ten in the west.

And yes there are things that can be played towards - learning tactics, learning to be consistent, learning to hate losing, learning to play with an edge and learning/being held accoutable.

While what you say is generally speaking true, an increased West vs. West schedule also presents more opportunity of 3 points games having an affect on the WC standings.

As it sits right now, Minnesota holds down the final wild card spot and projects to get 111 points.

Even if they play .500 hockey the rest of the way and pick up 10 OT loser points, they will finish with 100 points.
