GDT Oilers @ Wild Jan 02/04

My first GDT. Awww isn't that special

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?id=66388

There is the break down courtesy of TSN.

With the Oilers 7 points back of the 8th spot in the West this game is very important for the confidence of the team aswell as the viability of our chase.

Lets hope she's a slump buster!!

Go Oilers!!!!

Forgive me if I am off toppic. By reading Edmonton Sun and Edmonton Journal, I, again, witness MacT's old yet ineffective way to motivate his players: point fingers at the team if not a few players.
This way MacT may be able to rub some of players' ego, but for long term, the players will gradually lose respect to their coach. Had I ever seen MacT taking any repsonsible for the team's bad stretch. He always regards as "they", "you", "him"....I am sick of this strategy.
I have watched the History channel about Glen Sather. Everyone agreed that he had success with Oilers because he knows how to deal with each individual player. Each player is a unique, and needs to be treated differently, psychologically...and he always stood up for his players.
Although Sather does not have much success lately, but I see 2 coaches are so different. and of course, the result is what we have seen 2, 3 years, and now.
MacT has played under Sather, Keenan, and many other coaches, and he should have been better than Sather if not as equal. I am not talking the level of players they have, but the way they motivate, the way they drive to success...New year, I hope MacT will find something new that works for his squad. But the new year articles make me so disappointed.

Maybe MacT won't call anyone out because of what happen with 89? Not that there are any current Oilers who would ask to be traded after a bit of critizism.

The Oilers are unbeaten in their last 7 at XCel. Last time the Oilers blanked Minny 2-0. I think we'll see a strong showing from York and Brewer, and is Tommy starting tonight? For whatever reason the Oilers have always owned Minnesota. I expect to see the trend continues with a final of 3-1 Oil.

Happy 2004!

This is what most likely the D pairings are gonna look like for tonite:

Brewer - Semenov
Staios - Luoma
Cross - Ferguson
Lynch

That...... will make for an interesting game.

You could switch Cross with Lynch as Cross is iffy according to the Sun for tonight's game.

I think I might have to go with Minnesota on this one. Losing Smith is going to hurt us, a team that lately has had problems with emotion and showing desperation. York is also questionable after hurting his back. 2-1 Minnesota, Smyth scores for us.

these games always seem to be low scoring, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Oilers win -2 to -3...as for how both teams end up in the negatives, I'll let you guys figure it out.

Manny Fernandez with the start I presume. He really does have the Oilers' number.

I'm excited to see Luoma in again - I think games 5-10 for him will be the true indicators of what we can expect out of him this season. As far as the score I'll say 3-1 Oilers with Brewer, Dvorak, and Horcoff scoring.

Torres finally gets his 10th of the year. 1-0 Oilers after 1.

York is pure dynamite. Man he's solid. Brewer had a monster period, and Salo made all the stops. Plus Torres scores after a long drought. Lynch didn't look out of place, although I'm biased.

All of it doesn't count for much unless they win though.

I am very surprised Lemaire didn't start Fernandez against us. He has such a great record against us.

the most encouraging news so far is that Salo has made all the stops. Fab

Kids these days! No Hemsky! Don't turnover the puck in your end! (led to first goal by Minny) Torres, just the **#$@# puck out, no fancy passes in your end! (led to Ferguson's tripping penalty)

Do ALL young teams in the NHL repeatedly make the same mistakes every night?

The Wild never do it. Are they THAT much older than the Oilers.

why.....why......why?

They were both brutal plays. Nice of Raffi to own up to it with Gene between periods, though. I like this kid.
