How are are you willing to go to send the oil a little luck? I know some of you haven't shaved, showered or even changed in a bit, I even heard rumours of people painted like giant oilers logos..all in the hopes that it would help. But its getting close to time to pull all the stops. Call out to the hockey gods and be heard!
I feel sorry for MacT on Adam Oates. He seems to have no choice but puts Adam out there although it is like next to zero help from this veteran, both defensive and offensive. Do you think MacT will have the gut to replace Oates by someone, anyone may perform better than him, especially this time to help the team? Just for the team success sake. If MacT dresses Oates and let him sit for most of the game, this may not help either. We have young and hungry players sitting in pressbox now. Just give them chance, they may score an important goal.
GO! OILERS GO!
Oates won't be sitting until Reasoner is healthy again, and even then it would be questionable.
From what I've read, York's wrist isn't healthy enough to take draws regularly and other centrely things.
Well, it was his finger that was broken, but you may still be right. Yet he SAYS that when it's not all swollen (like it was for the other game) that he has the full range of movement, can shoot & stickhandle like normal...
