Really? Eh. I guess he should be fired up to go after a rough outing yesterday, but his record against Minny in the Xcel Energy Center isn't flattering.

You should take your lack of desire to back the Oilers by cheering them on one step further and stop posting here.

I love it when people pretend they don't care anymore, aren't going to watch blah blah blah and then come on here to post.

And I would suggest Fallout 3, what an incredible game

Here's the jist of it:

Oilers don't have an identity, when they were a less talented team, they'd lose 3-2 and the other team would be black and blue.

They wanna play a skill game, but don't have the players capable of it.

Matheson made Eklund's list of best rumor guys, Matheson wanted nothing to do with it.

It will be tough to make a trade for a scoring winger, but finding a bottom six guy who can pk and win faceoffs shouldn't be that hard of a trade to make, and Tambo needs to find that trade and make it.

Lots of scouts looking at Cole, and lots have asked Matheson how he's been playing. Matheson told them he was at his best a few weeks ago

He thinks The Garrioch claim that JBO wants to come to Edmonton is a bit over-blown but passed the question off to Stauffer who is close to JBO's father. They agreed that there would be too much money on the blue-line and that someone else would likely need to be moved.

Confirmed that Malkin is on the market but Pens want Penner and Horcoff in return, and Tambo thinks that's too much.




OK, obviously the last part is not true.

I hope the Oilers play like they did against St Louis and gut one out, but with this team you have no idea what to expect.

OT is anyone watching the Red Wings Pittsburgh game? Cooke tryed to hit Zetterburg with one of his trademark greasebag dirty hits and Zetts gave him the flying elbow!!! Right in front of the ref, Cookes nose bleeding, no penalty! I LMFAOed for about 5 minutes! No one respects Cooke and thats why there was no penalty.

He was crying about the hit and I just thought, now THAT'S irony!

Tencer "guarantees" that one of these two teams will make the playoffs.

Okay, buddy. Do I get my money back if you're wrong?

Thanks for the update...I can see the Oil sending a prospect or two and a pick to Ottawa for Vermette. That's about it for this season. In the off-season, provided they can convince JBo to sign, they can move a defenceman in a package for a top line player. As well, I'm sure they'll hope to pick a goalie from the UFA ranks. If not, I guess Rollie will get a 1 year until something else turns up. I can see Cole going for a prospect and/or a pick..That's my take on the future..

No Horcoff? Damn. He said he was hoping to be back today.

Those lines blow.

Man, you almost got me. I started typing a message laced with expletives and then I read your message again.

You are pure evil.

Today is one of those games where we need Cole to be a big contributor. He's gone silent recently and now would be a good time to step-up.
