I'm stunned.

Oilhitch 11-26-2003 08:51 AM

FINALLY!!!!!!

Thanks for the info Goon. I have been waiting for this line-up.

Perhaps they want to give Semi a chance to physically dominate DET's small forwards?

If so, here's to hoping he makes good with it.

About time Semenov gets back in the lineup. I like Ferguson but he should only play around 40 games a year in my eyes. He is the perfect 7th d-man.

USC Trojans 11-26-2003 09:08 AM

MacT's a stubborn fella, but thank goodness he finally cracked. Hopefully Semenov really outperforms Turd Ferguson and MacT will have no excuse to sit him out.

barto 11-26-2003 09:09 AM

It's still a little mystifying to me, though - leave Semenov out of the lineup for the Blue Jackets, but put him in for the first time in ump-teen games against the Wings? You would have thought that putting him in against the BJ's (heh) would have been a better way to get him back into things, see how he's doing, and if he's still struggling, put in the generally-reliable Ferguson back in for Detroit. :dunno:

But it's good to see Semenov get another chance to show his stuff...

And looking at the pairs, I'm just a little concerned about Brewer and Bergeron as a 'couple'. Is Brewer supposed to be the more responsible-defensively guy here, then? Hmmm...

I'm very intrigued by these pairings.. while Bergeron + Brewer look scary at first glance, Bergeron might "force" Brewer into playing a stupendous defensive game tonight! I'm really glad Semi finally draws back in.. Ferguson had a very weak game last night. I'm just hoping that Semenov uses this chance to show MacT what he showed all of us for the second half of the season last year.. it must be tough to keep getting one game auditions spaced a month apart :(

Yuck !! Hurry up and trade Comrie for a D-man. Ahhhhhh...delete this thread please, I can't look at that pathetic excuse for D any longer.

On a serious note, i'm serious. That has got to rank as one of the, if not the worst D-core in the NHL. Not kidding.

dem 11-26-2003 11:03 AM

Perhaps you should be more concerned about the Flames anemic offense than the Oilers defense. How about that 7 million dollar man?

Good point - Brewer has been average at best this year and his brain cramps are really starting to make me impatient. This guy isn't coming of age like anyone thought he would.

Just sharing infos here... :)

But on a serious note, maybe it's Bergy who will back Brewer tonight...

Buddy the Flames are brutal! Unfortunately no one posts there so you have to come on here and try to stir things up - the problem is your a Flames fan. Noboby here cares about the Flames, that rivalry ended when the Flames became the worst team in hockey sometime after thier lone Cup banner. Good effort though.

How about that 3.5 million dollar goalie of yours. At least our guy is good enough to play.

Turek? Are you kidding me? That guy is the biggest bust in the NHL at as much or more than Salo. What teams have you been watching. When was the last time Turek played anyway? Oh ya he is hurt - just like Salo. Turek and the Flames are aweful.

I thought it was $3.9M, but anyway...what was it you were doing here, exactly?

What does cups have to do with anything ?? So are you admitting that the Habs are better then the Oilers ?? No, I forgot, that only counts when talking about the Flames. Worst team in hockey ??? 5 out of a possible 6 points and you are telling me we are the worst team in the NHL. All you guys ever do is live in the past. Every hockey fan knows that and mocks you for it. Why not just admit that 5 cups vs. 1 cup means squat, especially when their last one was 13 years ago. The Canucks haven't won a cup but they are much better than both teams. I think it has to do with the inferiority complex of Edmontonians because Calgary is a much nicer and cleaner city. City of Champions. LOL !!! First Grey Cup in 10 years and no Stanley Cups for 13 years, wow, what champions !!

And the Flames last cup was...what 14 years ago?

Lots of teams have 1 cup.

Not many have 5. In 25 years no less.

Turek is better than Salo but that's a whole other story. If you guys had the nerve to admit that Iginla is much better than anyone on the Oilers, you would get respect from Flames fans but to put your homer glasses on instead shows that you are very weak. Who cares. Iggy's struggling...big deal. You guys were all sticking up for Comrie when he was garbage last year and he couldn't hold a candle to Iggy.

The way i see it iggy is the best player on either team. I am an oiler fan and even i can see that. The Turek/salo thing is a moot point and neither of them will be back after their conmtract ends. Salo end after this season so we are off the hook at the end of the season. FYI though i think both goailes have sucked for a couple of seasons now.

Who said that here? I don't believe you could find any post stating that any Oiler we have currently is better than Iginla. I wouldn't try and paint all other fans with that kind of generalization if I were you. If you want confirmation, I'll say it. IGINLA IS A BETTER HOCKEY PLAYER NOW THAN ANY CURRENT OILER. Fair enough?

And no one was really sticking up for Comrie last year. If you were around these boards at all, Comrie was horribly criticized for his play. So I don't see that argument either.


Regardless, this is an Oiler topic. No need for it to get sidetracked by needless Flames/Oilers bashing.

And lots of teams have none. Does that make them any worse now ?? No. St. Louis & Vancouver have never won a cup but they are twice the hockey team that Edmonton is NOW. That is what matters....NOW !!! The worse the Oilers get, the more you guys become like Habs fans. We have this many cups, how many do you have ?? It's pathetic.

I wouldn't trade the Flames cup in for the Oilers 5 because ours was the only one ever won at the Forum by any team other than the Habs. And the only one there ever will be. That is hard to believe considering how many times they've been in the finals and lost. All I am saying is that I am not jealous in the least that you guys were a dynasty decades ago and nobody else is jealous for that matter. Get a grip.

Unfortunately you have a problem with reading comprehension. I just stated that the Flames have been brutal since that lone cup. Nowhere did I compare cup victories. How do Oilers fans live in the past? This is a team that has been in the playoffs every year but one since 97. When was the last time the Flames made the playoffs or even came close? How many times since then? Inferiority complex? Yah thats it. Buddy this is a hockey forum not city beauty survey. When was the last time the Leafs won the Cup? Thats right they are just living in the past also. There are fewer teams with more cups than the Oilers than I can count on one hand. The fact remains the Oilers have had more playoff appearances than the Flames in recent years making the Oilers a far more successful organization of late. You have to be dreaming but heh, you think Turek is better than Salo.
