Question: What is worse than a 30th place NHL Team?
Answer: A 30th place NHL team with 8 regulars out of the lineup.
You won’t believe what happened Nation. The Edmonton Oilers lost an ice hockey match! And even more mind shattering – the game wasn’t that exciting!
And are you sitting down for the final bit of shockery? They were outshot in the process.
We are with you game 82 Edmonton Oilers Ice Hockey Club. Every single bit of heart breaking, mailed it in hockey. We will be watching until the very end. And for some of the members of the squad, the end seems to have been about 10 games ago.
POINTS OF DEBATE
- Kurtis Foster fell awkwardly into the boards and gave his coconut a good wrap in the process in the third. Given the Oilers luck of late he is probably out until some time in the 2015-16 season. Hopefully that isn’t the case, heavens knows the guy has been injured enough for a career.
- One of the few remaining bright spots is Ryan Jones. Not only is he a delight on twitter, but he is trying quite hard when it comes to the on ice play. Remember that this guy was a waiver wire pickup – a win Tambellini should remember when he wakes up at night in a cold sweat this summer fearing for his job.
- Eberle scored his 17th goal of the season. When you remember that he too missed a chunk of games due to injury, he seems like everything we were promised in the offseason. Hopefully he is getting the boxes of hair we mail to Rexall Place every Friday Night.
- Won’t it be fun to have another first pick overall to fawn over next season? Won’t it be fun to witness 37 simultaneous sophmore slumps at the same time?
WILL IT EVER END?
