Labarbera and that "roll the dice" defense that MacT put together last summer convinced me that they were at best an 11th place team in the West this season... but I let a lot of the others optimism on the boards get to me and I raised it up to maybe 10th.
Should have listened to the sage IATL. No one knows realistic pessimism like that guy.
Yep. When I let optimism grab me I usually end up getting kicked in the nuts when it concerns this club. I feel like Charlie Brown. Lucy's not going to pull the ball away this time...
But hey, you gotta believe sometimes.
Fall is like spring here, its that time of optimism, buzz, posters are singing. I even get caught up. haha

Lets hope the Oil stay on a run. I want them to get in a habit of winning that they can carry into next season.
You thought watching the Oilers defensive prowess was bad before. Can you imagine what it will look like after watching the clinic Team Canada put on at the Olympics?
If I was a betting man... I think the young Oilers players will have watched Team Canada and have a new commitment to team defense and hard work. They will all adopt a 200 foot game and we will see the results with a lot more wins than losses for the rest of the season.
Note - the above is why my wife doesn't let me bet on anything.
