Oilers practice so far...drills for 15 mins, now just skating the heck out of them.

Pouliot leaves ice early...right after bag skate.
Quote:
Never mind. Pouliot did leave, but bag skate isn't over. They just had a short water break.
Quote:
There is not a puck on the ice anywhere. Going on 20 mins of straight skating...

Push-ups now at center ice...

Renney says the next worst bag skate to this that he's ever run was the Olympic team in 1994 after they tied the French.

Hmm.

Are the coaches actually worried that we might beat the Canucks?

I'm pretty sure we could still lose without them being exhausted.

That's not for the players, it's for the fans. Actually, it's more for the kids. A lot of kids look forward to that event every year, I imagine a lot of them would be crushed if it was cancelled.

You know, hooking behind the opposition net, going off on a bad line change, making craptastic pinches, making excuses for an eighth straight loss, meat and potatoes stuff.

it's an elaborate excuse for families to go see some cool stuff for dirt cheap.

I went a few years ago and it was a lot of fun, but it's definitely for the kids and families that don't normally get to games. Canceling it would be stupid.

Back to the bag skating: I want them to tank, but at the same time, they don't have to embarrass themselves completely every night.

They decided to drop it as all players are now instructed to miss the net entirely in order to overtake the Canes. They might bring it back next year.

Who gives a crap, do you honestly think it will make any difference. Just watched Tom Gilberts hangdog look during an interview with TSN, oooooohhhhh it just gives me shivers I know they are going to come out gangbusters against the Canucks. I love sarcasm.

I wonder how the players feel that their captain didn't have to participate because "he tweaked his neck".

Moreau should have been front and centre in the bag skate for the bone head penalties. This is crap as far as I'm concerned.

or..when Ethan's neck is better, he gets his own bag skate.

Moreau is doubtful for tomorrow's game. BTW, Pouliot left early from practice.

Poor Gilbert , he looks almost as disgusted with his game as the rest of us .

why punish them because as a collective they suck?

they should make Lowe and Tambo bag skate instead for overpaying "third line" players, inactivity, paying 4 million for a known cripple in net, depending on too many BAD draft picks/trades. same with Pat Quinn. youre the one who took the job without even evaluating the roster or knowing ANY of the players. Mac-T warned everyone on his exit interview and ANYONE with a brain knew last season that this group of players couldnt execute a game of hockey. do your homework, codger. "back in my day." yeah yeah yeah, everyones heard stories out of their old man and by about the third word you stop listening. keep talking old geezer, we know you know it all.

"YOU GUYS SHOULD BE ASHAMED THAT WE'RE THE DUMB ONES! OK?!"

not saying the players dont deserve it, but rhetorically, how about punish the morons who put this Circus of Turds together if theyre all about "accountability" and butt spankings?

lol, it's the like the coaching staff is disatified with their play or something.

Good on them, this will really show us who wants to be here and who wants out.

Don't forget the show-stopping "Sucking Hind Banana" relay.

Whats wrong with a little disipline? This whole tank thing is getting out of hand. First pick will be great, but lets retain some sense of respectability. Besides, who out there can honestly say they wouldn't secretly enjoy seeing us whip the Canucks? I really miss watching Gator ragdoll the twins.

In hindsight, a bagskate might have helped after say, oh, loss 10 of this streak. But good on Quinn to geter done now. Should be a bagskate after every loss from here till the end of the season, as "practices" don't seem to be helping any.

Is this correct? Everyone got bag skated except Captain Moreau? My opinion of Quinn is rapidly plummeting if that is true. If the team deserved to be bag skated after last game then Moreau should be getting bag skated after EVERY game. The fact that even the new coach has blinders up for the old leadership group is very troubling. The old leadership group is about 70% of our problems.

Personally, I think this bag skate was a horrible idea.
