awesome heroes and villains GDT. Hope to see more creative GDT's in the future.

Tonight's game is a scary one for me. The leafs played well in calgary and came up against a hot Kipper. The oilers are usually bad after a long lay off. Unfortunately i see the leafs taking this one.

Even though they're playing back-to-back, the leafs are not a team you want to run and gun with. The oilers will need to clog up the neutral zone, get pucks in deep and forecheck hard. Trading chances will result in a loss, just like it did in Toronto.

I like the superhero pics. I'm not getting them for the top 2 lines for the Oilers (other than Superman and the Flash) and only the silver surfer for the Oilers top pairing. All the rest are working though.

It's kinda hard matching 19 Heroes to 19 hockey players based on characteristics, names, or whatever. So there were a few (maybe even several) times I just matched them up based on my personal preference. For instance Horcoff is Mr.Fantastic because that is my sarcastic way of saying he is far from being fantastic. There are definatley some that have no connection at all though cuz my brain started hurting and said screw it

I just can't muster up hatred for the leafs. As a kid growing up they were my fav team while all my brothers like the HABs. The Leafs were very annoying for a number of years but they are so far down the list now, the Flames are even a distant 2nd to the Canorcs.

For what I can see:

- Only see Flash for MPS-Horcoff-Hemsky line.
- Only see Superman for Hall-Gagner-Eberle line.
- Only see Silver surfer for the Smid-Petry pairing.
- No Bulin Wall

I'm not sure that's by design or not.

Oh and Barker's superhero is too good for him.

The Punisher too good for Barker? Seems about right to me. Worst hero ever.

I'll be honest, I'm a little bit insulted at the lack of Spawn

Aquaman disagrees. Even James Cameron couldn't make him cool (10 vcash for who gets the reference).


Anyway, key today is going to be clog up the neutral zone. Try eliminate the Maple Leafs speed.

All the radio stations in Toronto have been talking about the Edmonton game as a gimmie game for the Laughs. I hope we give them a whipping!!!

It would be great to contribute to them missing the playoffs.

GO OILLL

Sweet superhero theme. I can see all of the pics on Chrome.
Oilers haven't done well when teams play them the night after they play Calgary for some reason. They also haven't done well after a few days off. With the combination of both I'm a bit worried. Leafs are hurting for a win too. But hey, hopefully they prove me wrong.

The effort is appreciated, it looks really cool. I'm inspired to make a Super Smash Bros. one. Off the top of my head: MPS = Sonic, Sutton = Donkey Kong, Renney = Pokemon Trainer (Hall = Charizard, RNH = Squirtle, Eberle = Ivysaur)

Bad feeling about this one.

Leafs have to be steaming mad and motivated after losing so much and wanting to stay in the playoff picture.

More importantly, the Leafs transition game based on speed mitigates a large amount of advantage inherent in having the last change at home. Much more so than a possession-based team like Detroit or Vancouver who thrive offensively when they can force offensive zone faceoffs regularly.

4-1 Leafs with an empty netter.
