GDB Wrap Up: Rangers @ Oilers

Booooo

So THAT went well... *smashes face on fork* Final Score: 5-0 Rangers

Last time the Oilers played the Rangers, Nail Yakupov scored the game winning goal with a minute left in the 3rd period. Kevin Quinn's goal call was hilarious and we all had a good laugh about it. It was an exciting game. Fast forward to today and half the team is either out or apparently playing injured.  The Rangers are still in a playoff spot and the Oilers have been spoilers since October. What a season (read 8 years) to be an Oilers fan! *sigh*

When Philip Larsen is taking shifts at forward, you know things are not going well. Midway through the 2nd period the Oilers had 6 shots for funk sakes. Frankly, it's a struggle to think of anything positive about this game aside from the fact that the Rexall DJ was a running punchline on Twitter. When making fun of the shitacular music at Rexall is the best thing about a hockey game, you know things are bad. On the bright side, we're all in this together.

Let's wrap it up...

The Bright Side

  • We're all one day closer to death
  • Making fun of the Rexall DJ was more entertaining than the actual game
  • Martin St. Louis didn't score!
  • 7 more games left in this life draining season
  • Not a single jersey was thrown on the ice

The Face Palmers

  • The music at Rexall is so bad Rangers media guys were commenting on it
  • Shorthanded goals number 6000 and 6001
  • Paying actual post tax dollars on Oilers tickets
  • The best power play of the night was when the Oilers took a penalty to make it 4 on 4

Best of the Tweets

So I'm in the semifinals of my Yahoo fantasy hockey league. The ONLY way I can lose is if the Oilers get shutout as the person I'm playing has Talbot in goal. I should've seen this coming.

I think the fans at the game must've been in a good mood or are just too tired to revolt. There wasn't much booing or jersey tossing out there.

what the funk is this garbage MC T called "entertaining hockey" at one point? and since when do get "banged up" when your forwards don't even back check? is partying and getting wasted on Saturday night called "banged up" now days?

ohh you meant the "young core" took time off last night and decided to not show up again for the 40th time this season, yet when a fan that pays good $$$ for this and decides to throw his hard earned jersey on the ice we say is disrespectful? how about this losers that manage the team to the joke of the league or the players not giving a funk about playing hard? isn't that more disrespectful to the Oilers legends? to the logo? even hockey?

To all the Oilers Management (laughed when I typed this) enjoy your paycheque and have fun golfing losers.

The entire team and coaches and even six rings should watch tapes of the golden bears. They may see some things they may not recognize: consistent puck support, puck protection, proper defensive positioning ALL OVER THE ICE, low risk plays, proper zone entries, shots on goal, and an overall High level of compete and battle level all over the ice. I bet that Ian Herbers could step in immediately and make a positive difference. Pathetic and laughable.

I certainly enjoyed Entourage re-runs tonight. At least there does the lil' guy make it!

This team is pathetic.

The clowns that said the team is turning a corner are pathetic.

The proponents of anything to do with the current edition of the Edmonton Oilers are, you guessed it, PATHETIC!

Putting all my Oilers' collection on eBay - willing to pay $500 for someone to take it. Redecorating my bar/rec room and looking for a team that WANTS to win to support. I am DEEPLY ASHAMED to be known as a former Oilers' fan. OILERS YOU SUCK. YOU SUCK SO BADLY THAT THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE SHAME THAT YOU HAVE INFLICTED ON YOUR FANS. I am ashamed and embarrassed that I ever supported you. You are a disgrace to the NHL. I'd rather watch ballet than a game with you participating, because you don't do that. You don't participate, you just show up and collect your millions of $$$$$. You should be ashamed of yourselves. I am sick to my stomach. I feel as if I've been kicked in the b***s.

Anyone remember the Harold Ballard years in Toronto? Bad ownership led to bad management, led to bad coaching, led to years of futility. The Leafs still aren't respectable and we believe that things are going to be better soon. This is worse, much worse.

Man, I wish we could look 3-4 years from now and see how the oilers at doing. Question is should we be patient with what we have or just blow it all up? Will they be any worse next year if the replace everyone here? Maybe the nhl could put together a mercy draft for the oilers. Kind of like an expansion draft.

Let me answer this for you or paint you a picture.

"with the first pick of the 2017 Hockey Draft the Oilers select....."(another wasted talent)

mark my words, Flames will move at least 3-5 spots in the standings next year, and will make the playoffs in 2015-16 season while Oilers are still it year 4 of the rebuild. LOSERS!!

Especially when we have 2 other playoff bound teams in this city, the Oil Kings and Rush, and most people still support the Oilers who are at least 3x times more expensive to go, and yet 2 other teams. Who deserve our support. I'm calling out the whole nation to show support for the Oil Kings and Rush. The Oilers are done till next year. Enjoy some upcoming playoff action folks.

Exactly, if this I the general concesus blow this s$&t show up. Trade whoever you can to make this team a respectable franchise again. I don't care what it takes. Trade anyone! Just fix this mess. It's a joke now. I just don't understand how they can be so bad. Is the coaching and systems really that bad? Or is it the players? Is it both?an I just don't know.

Edmonton is a hot bed for creating nhl stars who grow up playing in this city and this hot spot for nhl talent can't even be represented by a decent team in the best league in the world. How ironic.

Use the $$ you spent on the game ticket and put it into 6-49.

I can't get my head around the fact the Oilers website actually has a link to freakin' highlights of the game, HIGHLIGHTS?!?!?

If the highlights consist of anything more than the ceremony at the beginning, the anthems being sung relatively correctly and the 50/50 winner who was probably the only person who didn't feel cheated in the building, then the Oil are lying to everyone....

I wonder as Slats was watching the horror show, if he took 6Rings to the side and asked him how he has managed to turn the team into a Dumpster fire, could 6Rings even look him in the eye?

It was a terrible show.....

Can a different coaching staff make these guys play better hockey. I begining to think not!

I think for the most part of the top six.... what you see is what you get. There is no magic coming in the off season to turn these guys game.

All the years they sucked to be able to draft high picks and this is what you end up with?

This team was built to loose.

There are some high priced draft picks on this team that are not getting it done. The hometown heros, got zeroed nine times this year, six at home.

Rangers not a difficult team to play against, No.2 goalie in net, and we cant even score one stinking goal
