Simulation, as defined by the Merriam/Webster dictionary is “imitation of a situation or process.” This whole process was designed to give you an escape from the lack of normal that we have all been dealing with. We have been having a blast watching along with you, but we know it hasn’t been particularly fun watching the Oilers simulate to a 1-3-0 record. We promise we have had a chat with the boys, and things will get better. They have to get better tonight as we simulate the Colorado Avalanche and Edmonton Oilers game that was supposed to be taking place tonight at 7:30pm MT.
Shortly before game time, the video will play here:
We don’t really know what we’re doing here other than just trying to be a beacon of fun and laughs for @Edmonton Oilers fans everywhere. If you have ideas/comments/thoughts on the game or something you want to see on the site, feel free to comment below and let us know. We had 2068 unique viewers for Wednesday’s stream of a game, and we hope you enjoy this break with us tonight too.
On Monday afternoon, we asked for you to put in your submissions for lineups for the game…
This time, we want you to pick the lineup.
Comment below with the Offensive lines or D Pairs you want to see…

Then I went and forgot to hit save on all the lines and instead of Koskinen and the various other line changes, you got Smithers and some janky lines which meant the team started out slow and could never recover against the woeful Ducks. I have fixed that for tonight’s game and you will see that tonight.
Here is what you chose –

Ennis – McDavid – Kassian
RNH – NeonLeon – Yam
