i would bet the oilers respond good, Garons gotta be chompin at the bit to get back in there after being out so long. The Av's in the last few years havent played the oilers too to well so im gonna go with Edmonton wining 3-1. Cole having a goal and assist too.
All I can think of was the comment after they got spanked by the Hawks, at least we get to play less than 24hrs later, and we can respond. Yeah, some response . Lets see if they do any better. I am not usually a betting man when it comes to the Oilers, because I always hope for the best, but I am willing to bet that they lay another turd on the ice tonight. Not serious, just saying. I hope they prove me wrong. While they're at it, I hope they prove me wrong on not thinking they are capable of making the playoffs.
Confidence is a fickle thing, and the Oilers have none. Every big game they play, they find a way to lose. This isn't a huge game or anything, they already blew the two big ones against Vancouver and Minny. The only thing this will accomplish is window dressing. They are still close. I guess we'll see what they got.
Why would you be yelling at Grebs? Yell at Gilbert instead. Grebs has been 10 times the player that Gilbert has so far.
Grebs has played ok but he's still giving the puck away more than any other 'D', and in scary situations. Luckly, he isn't bad at recovering it. I hope you're joking about Grebs and Gilbert. Somewhere in the future Grebs may be better than Gilbert but not yet...The problem with Gilbert has been he isn't the top 'D' like he was for the last half of the games last year with more time and responsibility, especially on the PP. Given that time and we'd be thinking a lot higher of him, same as last year.
I actually thought the oil deserved better last night and because of that they'll come out strong and take the lead early. If they have a three goal cushion going into the third they'll win. If it's only two, the third will be very hard to watch.
