Did she just do that?

Something tell me that she has never suffered from S.O.B.S (you'll learn what that means later), but I'm also guessing she is kind of a show off. Really who can't look at their own butt? Okay, let's be honest most of us struggle to twist around and face the mirror while try to see how our cabosse looks.

Clearly she looks at herself in ways none of us can, but she likely has something in common with Dustin "Pancakes" Penner; she probably doesn't take herself too serious.

GDB 42.0: CAN THEY IMPROVE?

The Oilers start the second half of their season hoping they can find some consistency and learn how to play better in the 3rd period. The Oilers have been outscored 44-31 in the 3rd, despite outscoring the opposition 36-32 in the 1st and 43-40 in the 2nd. They need to be smarter and sometimes more patient in the 3rd and wait for the opposition to make a mistake, similar to the Wings and Pens, rather than try risky plays.

Dave Gagner played 946 NHL games scoring 318 goals and 719 points over 14 seasons. He scored 40 goals twice, 30 goals four times and 20 in three other seasons. He was even more productive in the playoffs tallying 22 goals and 48 points in 57 games. He was a solid NHLer, but the road to success wasn't easy or quick.

His first four seasons as a pro were split between the AHL, NHL and IHL. From 1985 to 1988 he played 14 games in the IHL, 110 in the AHL and 131 in the NHL. It wasn't until his 5th pro season that he became a regular NHLer, when he exploded for 35 goals and 78 points in 75 games with the Minnesota North Stars.

Reality has hit Oilersnation, the Oilers still aren't very good, and with 41 games left to play, many want to find someone to blame and it seems Tom Renney has become a popular target. For years many some of the same fans and media clamoured that Craig MacTavish needed to go, because allegedly he stymied the offensive growth of players.

GDB 41.0: DON'T WANT TO BE SEEING STARS

The Oilers have taken a beating on this trip, and today they are a like a boxer, leaning back on the ropes trying to buy some time to avoid taking another blow that would KO them. The Oilers have lost five of six, they've given up 24 goals, they've been outshot 168-194 and they've lost two of their most consistent players in Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Tom Gilbert in the first six games of this trip.

It would be easy to mail one in this afternoon in Dallas, and return to Rexall 1-6, but this year's team hasn't shown much quit, and I expect them to give a decent effort today.
