GDB 33: A White Christmas

Douchebags and newspapers, together at last
Douchebags and newspapers, together at last

It’s the first time since 1971 that all of Canada is experiencing a white Christmas. But really, who cares? The Sedin Sisters are hosting our Brutish and Mighty Oil tonight. Here’s Gregor’s report on the lines for tonight. — bingofuel

Line-ups…
Hemsky – Horcoff – Penner
Nilsson/Moreau – Cogliano – Pouliot
Reddox – Gagner – Cole
Strudwick – Brodziak – Stortini

Moreau skated at the morning skate and will be a game time decision. If he can’t go then Nilsson will draw in. If he does, Nilsson will be eating popcorn in the pressbox.

  • Deep Oil

    I am curious if some of the oilers with roots in Ontario made it back to Edmonton for the charter flight to YVR – otherwise called the dead zone – as Westjet refused to fly into Vancouver over the holidays as the airport did not have enough deicing equipment – MacT is at fault for running a practise the next morning (DEC 23) instead of letting the players take the red eye to YYZ after the marginal win over the bankrupt YOTES…… this will be one jet lagged tired team – expect a zombie effort due to this schedule quirk in YVR. Next time give the players 12 more hours off or invite the families to Edmonton…this is going to be a turkey disaster – MACT got coal this Christmas – not a happy holiday when your best friend is thinking about cutting you loose sooner or later.

  • Wanye Gretz

    Wanye Gretz will be asking his parents to end Christmas Dinner half an hour after it begins so that he can watch the Oilers.

    It's basically like every other Christmas we have had in the Gretz family to date.
