• Oilers G- Nations Poet Laureate

    South Park floppy mouths

    That is pure comedy GOLD

    “It’s under control”*

    *aka…Its OK guys, I’ll suit up again. I know a thing or two about winning, I have 6 rings ya know.

  • YOU A-HOLES!

    I have a big meeting in less than an hour and just pissed my pants watching this cartoon. Of course I suppose I should have been prepping and reading “important” emails and such, but I check in, see this new format and say to myself “This looks interesting. Maybe I’ll just take a quick peek.”

    THEN IT ALL GOES SIDEWAYS!

    • HA! Yeah dude, I could have clients coming to my office any minute and instead of prepping I’m pissing time away on ON.. or clash of clans.

      JS, this movie was awesome. Focus your time on these and scrap those game day movies. All they are is a replay of previous games with a god awful song played over them.

  • Where has Oiler winning hockey gone ? Long time passing . Where has Oiler hockey gone ? Along long time ago . Where has Oiler hockey gone ? Gone to grave yards everyone . When will they ever learn , when will they ever learn ? R.I.P.

    I don’t see much of a conundrum. He has some offensive upside. however so did Michael Del Zotto. He has no shot, is terrible on the powerplay, and is a liability 5×5. The Oilers have had 3 years to figure this out. If you believe there is more there, then Dallas Eakins and his approach to no accountability and structure will do nothing to develop him.

    He has no interest in a physical or defensive game, and the Oilers have no interest in developing him properly or they would had accountability to reinforce that his lackadaisical effort is not tolerated.

    The only conundrum seeing what you can get for him at the trade deadline and allocating the funds necessary to resigning Petry. If he eventually becomes good, that will because he is with an organization that gets it.

      I agree with almost everything you are saying, except, if you were petry, would you actually consider signing here? If I was him, I would take less to play on any other team in the league. He is UFA so I’d be absolutely shocked if he agrees to have his career flushed down the toilet for 4 more years

    MacT: I think that Schultz has the potential to be a Norris contender.

    Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    This was a mild step up from the Halloween video.

    I like the cartoon but don’t think it is neccessary to have its own blog post. Just hide future ones in the GDB wrap ups or someplace even more hellish (if possible).

      Sorry to report to you, humour can be closer to the truth than truth itself. It is actually enjoyable these days to watch this team. The sad part is they meet other teams on the ice. Maybe the Oilers can be given a special NHL exemption from playing other teams on game nights?

      It will be exciting to see them skate, take shots at empty nets and even wave their sticks to the fans after these solitary games. Occasionally they could be given a loser point as a confidence builder.
      Their present record is 19 points out of a possible 58 or 7-17-5 or 0.32758621. This would be a excellent average for a Blue Jay hitter!!!

  • Wutz a conundrum, a musical persussion onstrument that you beat with two stix ? I think that should be what coach Dallas ‘Squinty’ Eakins should do to beat some sense into JS.

    Growth can be painful.

  • LibrarianMike

    Great stuff, although I was a *little* bit disappointed that it didn’t consist of Lowe and MacT as Terrance & Phillip, farting on Eakins repeatedly. Then again, there’s always tomorrow’s game.

    I’m starting to think that the fab 5 are sold on their hype……..once you start believing all your hype…….the end is near.

    JS probably thinks that he is premier defence man based on all the hype he received in year one. I’m convinced that all of them ( except maybe Hall) are drunk on all the hype they have received and now will need to be de-programmed and then re-programmed.

    This will be difficult if not impossible.

    I can almost guarantee Schultz wouldn’t be playing in the NHL if he was european. Firstly, he’s got character issues, I know we gloss over it because HE PICKED US(!!!), but the fact of the matter is, he was a 2nd round draft pick (makes a bit more sense if lemieux/lindross have these feelings) and refused to sign with his draft team. Even more, he lead ANA to believe he would sign with them at some point down the road, and then sideswiped them kinda last minute to exploit a loophole in the CBA that would allow him to make a crap-load more money. So he’s selfish and got character issues.

    Also, he’s a BAD hockey player. Like lately almost a Philip Larsen equivalent. People rip Yak to no end, and I think the Russian factor plays into it a ton, but since Schultz is a GOOD KELOWNA BC BOY (THUMBS UP), and not some PINKO VISOR WEARIN COMMIE AND EVERYFINK LIKE THAT, he escapes criticism. Plus he CHOSE US guys, when did a player CHOOOOOSE us?!?

    Let’s take off our rose coloured glasses and realize he stinks. Even Gregor has soured on him lately.
