Strangest thing is Sharks games are priced in lower bracket. Its oddly considered a non premium game here. Best value there is.
I don't think many fans enjoy spending money to watch the Oilers get absolutely destroyed.

Nobody in Boston can handle Scott. He embarassed Thornton last year. Boston are the classic bullies, when someone face up to them, they are crapping their pants.

I have a much different impression.

With the Oilers, historically, and with this club, they bring out their best efforts against better clubs win or lose. So in matchups like this I not only see the most entertaning opponent club I have a much higher probability of seeing the Oilers play at their best. I love games like this. (having said that I realize SJ has spanked us a few times but all the more reason to expect the Oilers players to realize they have to bring it to avoid embarrassment)
For instance the best game this year was likely the Pittsburgh game. Because the Oilers, even stated, were playing to avoid being embarrassed. Actual quote, a mirror on whats wrong with this club and troubling.

I would absolutely hate to attend any game with Columbus, Nashville, Dallas, Calgary, etc where the oil play down to their opponent.

You wouldn't run across a highway while it's rush hour and traffic is flowing, so why the heck do goalies come that far out to play the puck when a player is coming full speed ahead?
I know hey, I don't know why John Scott is even being suspended.. it's really Loui Erickson's fault for being an idiot that puts himself in a dangerous position.

That kind of apologetic crap is just that, crap.

So who is playing net for Carolina? Khubodin is still out and Ward is now out 3-4 weeks.

Clearly. But what's the difference between him and Loui Erikson? By the way the answer is nothing. Both hits were with intent to injure and led to a concussion. When the league doesn't handle it appropriately, you get incidents like this, and the Bertuzzi one. Buffalo will continue going after Boston, and in my opinion, rightfully so.

A goalie wondering is different in my books. I wish more would get clocked instead of forcing players to jump over them.

Games I'm attending: Washington last night, Columbus in November, San Jose in March.

Love the Sharks, really looking forward to the game. I agree, other than I think one something like 4-1 loss to the Sharks a while back we're generally pretty competitive.

Not a Ryan Murray guy, but who would've thought he would score his first goal of the season before Yak?

Your post is like the first I have read about him. Have not heard a peep about this kid on tv, etc. Is he doing any good?

Kassian just got his a** kicked by Stewert in the ST game ha ha. Nice!

Lol, pretty much.

I got the mini pack with PHX, CGY, SJS & PIT... I figured Calgary would be a win (not sure about that anymore...) Phoenix would be a toss up, SJS a guaranteed loss but one I could eat in order to see Sid and Geno for the first time. I dunno, still kinda torn on it tbh. It sucks being an Oiler fan right now.

Cherry feels sorry for John Scott and doesn't pin the blame on MacLoed for his hit on Kronwall.

....Okay, Cherry.

Yup. Holtby puts on a show against us, then plays the Flames and doesn't make it out of the first (again).
