Emphasize the point with a good, hard shove. maybe even a slap in the face. Yes. Tell them they are a slap in the face to the Avalanche logo, then slap them in the face to illustrate your point.

Wow. Ok, yes. I'll be sure and do that.

Well other than our PK sucks, our PP sucks, our defense lets people crowd the net and get rebounds, we've lacked offensive punch, our 2nd line has been useless, one of our best players is sitting on his ass waiting for an overpriced contract, our captain got nailed last game and nobody is sure how it's going to affect him we're not a bad team.

3-2 Avs

Its actually ridiculous the amount of PIMs were getting a game.

We are averaging over 6 minutes more a game then any other team in the league.... That's ridiculous. I mean were playing close to half the game with someone sitting in the box for something right now.

I smell a conspiracy.

Anyways I'm going to refrain from guessing the score. Guessing penalties is a much better use of our time though. More fun and more positive in comparison to us expecting a loss each and every game.

I'll go and say we end up with 18 minutes worth of penalties. I hope its lower though considering that we are quite good 5 on 5, we just don't get to see 5 on 5 as often as we'd like.

Good lord, looking at the stats just then and I thought our Power Play was bad(It is) but at least we've scored a PPG at this point.

The Kings are 0 for 23 on the Power Play. That's actually terrible. 23 PP's and not a single goal. With the fire power they have.

Were 27th right now at 1 for 12, Boston is 1 for 17 and Detroit is 2 for 26.

Really surprised to see Detroit, Boston, and LA so low on the PP% given the players they have. LA especially.

Just use the ignore button. I have lots of posters here on ignore. It's ok being critical, but some sports fans seem to enjoy complaining about losses more than cheering for wins and only see the negative aspect in all things. It gets old very fast.

What's your guys' lineup going to look like for this game (lines, pairings, etc?)

Just a curious Oilers fan dropping by.

Landeskog - Duchene - Parenteau
McGinn - Stastny - Jones
McLeod - Mitchell - Hejduk
Kobasew - Olver - Bordeleau/Malone

Wilson - EJ Johnson
Hejda - O'Byrne
Zanon - Hunwick/Barrie/O'Brien

Varlamov

Something like that.

I think as a 5 on 5 team, we've been pretty good this year.

So far, our special teams have been really awkward to say the least.

It bodes well for the avs that not only they stay out of the box, try not to draw any penalties either.

Hopefully with time, we'll get a better system in place for the PP and PK.

We got absolutely shredded by the sharks on the PK, but I wouldnt weigh that game too heavily as the sharks are just hammering EVERYONE on the PP this season.

Other than the SJ game, we only allowed 2 PP goals, so it hasnt been rotten, its been decent.

Here's our lines and who they'll likely match up against (based on last game)

Hall-RNH-Eberle (Duchene line)
Yakupov-Gagner-Hemsky (Hejduk line)
Smyth-Horcoff-MPS (Stastny line)
Petrell-Belanger-Hordichuk/Hartikainen (whatever)

Smid-Petry
J.Schultz-N.Schultz
Whitney-Fistric

Dubnyk

You're going to abuse our 4th line - literally a scoring chance against or penalty on every shift

Ryan Smyth is a shade of his old self, very beatable at ES - which means we don't have really have a 3rd line. We lack good "shutdown" ability on our team, Horcoff is our best player at it, but the rest of it's not there. MPS is an up-and-coming force in that regard, but Belanger/Smyth have really fallen off at ES.

That top-6 is a joke at defensive play other than RNH.

Is this oilers fan trying to out negative us? Gagner is going to have another 8 point game on the 14 PP chances the Oilers will have.

Haha I'm not saying you guys are going to run over us, just offering some tidbits on the ongoing weaknesses of our team.

Our PP is hella dangerous though. We literally have 2 #1 units.

1) Hall-RNH-Eberle-Horcoff-J.Schultz (with Horcoff in front of net)
2) Smyth-Gagner-Hemsky-Whitney-Yakupov (with Smyth in front of net, Yakupov bomb from point)

If there was any chance of it staying 5 on 5 I'd feel quite confident, but since the Avs are going for the record for most PIM per game, that's not the case, even though our PK should match up much better with your smaller PP than we did SJ's huge PP.

Should be a fun game to watch, Oilers 9 Avs 2, with McGinn accidental scoring both as his post shots bounce in off Dubnyk.

Given your #1 is impressive, but how is the #2 unit considered a #1 PP unit?

I'd probably be inclined to say (if they are doing well on the PP) you have competent special teams coaching, unlike us.

Regardless, I expect a very high scoring game tonight and when we meet up at the end of the week. I think both rosters will have a lot to prove and neither will look to let the other demolish them, given how both of us are seen as the future of the conference (Minny too I guess, just haven't been as impressed with them... maybe when Brodin/Dumba develop).

Did we ever get a confirmation on starters? I'm guessing Giggy for us.

It's not as though we don't "try" to compete, because our team is full of hard workers. We just lack the capacity.
I think it's time for the Aveeeeees to dominate the Oilers with dominance. 4-1, no PP goals allowed. Duchene, McGinn, McGinn, Parenteau.

I'd be very surprised if it's not Varlamov, seeing as we have a back-to-back after this one. Giguere will get one of those.
