We told Gregor we’d handle the GDB today on account of the fact that we have had just about as much of this garbage hockey as we can stand. Cheaper than therapy, yelling on the interwebs about the Oilers is way more fun anyways.
We haven’t seen crap this lame on a sheet of ice since we attended the Rabbit-Monkey Ice Dancing festival back in ’08.
Khabibulin hasn’t won in 14 starts. Now, we don’t have a PHD in Goalieology but wouldn’t logic dictate that you banish him to the land of wind and ghosts? Nevermind looking old, he looks a lot like a terrible goalie. A terrible goalie who is probably looking forward to serving his sentence in one of America’s toughest prisons once this season has come to a close.
That last abomination of a game against the Senators could barely be considered ice hockey. It simply cannot continue if this team is going to be anything other than garbage next season. It can’t be good for Hall and Eberle to be exposed to this level of shitanusly bad hockey for this long in their rookie seasons.
So few Oilers are competing right now, we find ourselves wishing that Patrick O’Sullivan was still on the roster. At least he would skate across the blueline and wrist a muffin into the chest of the opposing goaltender every now and again. These Oilers?
The Oil are so far behind everyone else in the Western Conference that it doesn’t even merit looking at the standings going into games anymore. The Oilers would be considered underdogs in an Atom Tier 12 Minor Hockey Week game. So of course the Ducks are going to come into Rexall Place full of swagger knowing that it is going to be point night.
And you know what? It probably will be point night.
For God’s sakes Oilers. Start Dubnyk. Pull up your socks, drop your nuts and give a 60 minute effort.
Oh and by the by, that NationRadio show was awesome. Lowetide is the m-a-n. We should have the audio up on the site mid week once we figure out exactly what we need to do. It’s first thing on the list of to dos at Nation HQ tomorrow morning. Promise.
