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

It is true. Have heard from insider and an agent in Calgary. Though they may not have approach the team.

Six rings has no respect rom players, agents, or other GM's. E has single handedly with Mac T turned Edmonton fron a proud franchise to the laughing stock of the league recycling NHL 3rd and 4th line garbage and signing has beens.

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.

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!!

The Leafs in the "Ballard era" didn't spend any money on players. Thats what is so frustrating with this team, Katz has no problem with hie buddies throwing money away and that makes no sense. The Oilers are worried about season tickets going forward since their surveys did not comeback favorable for renewals and they keep having these luncheons.

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.

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.

When a team is having a bad game and the score is being run up score the coach pulls the goalie even though it is not his fault.

MacT and 6 rings should pull the coaches for a few games even though it is not their fault. I wonder what would happen?

So Eakins comment after the game, he blamed Oilers are not a scoring team, the last 5 seasons they were always dead last in goals scored.

Isn't it his job to make this team better and not compared to previous years?

Is Eakins a retarded monkey or what? It's like saying your kids have always been stupid, the last 5 years they have low marks, so it's the parents job to get them smarter right? His job is to turn this team around and make them better.

So Patrick Roy took over 2nd worst team last season and turned the team around this season with same young team and unproven Dmen. The Avs have a chance to win 50 games this year, what a turn around. Roy made the team better with what he has.

This Eakins guy is not making Oilers better but worst. 2 more short handed goals scored against and another shut out lost at home. The fans have to put up with this crap AGAIN? How can a team has power play got scored 2 goals against with a man advantage? THIS EAKINS guy is a JOKE.

He is not making the young players better and believe in themselves, instead he is making them doubting themselves.

MAC T please fire this clown!

You just don't get it man.. kevin is the ferris wheel, and everyone else just goes for a ride. This disease is WELL past remission... The figurative tumor is kevin, and we need to lop it off before we can start therapy. There is nothing that can ever be done to make the oilers proud again until kevin is gone. This has been re-hatched 1 million times, and will be the bane to any future oilers growth. It is so redundant that the redundancy is redundant.

I turned on the game with a couple of minutes left in the 2nd. It was about what I expected so I started flipping channels. Found LaBamba playing and decided to watch that instead. Looks like I made the right choice. There was a time I would say there's no way you could think of trading the young core guys. Now, I say blow it up. Trade every last one of them. Doesn't suprise me in the least that Hall and Eberle want out. I would too. Just don't boo them when they come back to town wearing other team's jerseys. How much losing can potential young stars take before they start to doubt themselves?

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!
