Man, it is too bad no one is anointing him the next Brodeur, or else your claims might have an ounce of substance.

There were some nasty hits that game with the Oilers on the receiving end.

Hopefully Peckham recovers.

Gagner had a hit on his head by the SJ guy. Gagner picked himself up well, but hopefully there arent any long term effects.

Potulny probably needs a nice ice cold bath right now.

I never claimed he'd end up being an elite goaltender. All I said is that we should give him a chance to compete and show what he can do. He may end up being good or not. It's up in the air at this moment.

You, on the other hand, have written him off as a hapless chump and career AHL backup without even giving him a chance.

Glencross had a longer run on a better team that was getting a lot of press.

I really think this one is a more of a Hejda-type deal. Where the Oilers COULD have gotten it done if they wished, but let him walk with their Assistant GM.

Nice win.

The boys played well, and it wasn't too tough.

It looks like San Jose is starting their annual end-of-year suckage a couple of weeks early.

Good game. I really hate to admit this but...... Moreau had a.. decent game.

Comrie can fight for a smaller player. Nichol is as tough as they come for his size and Comrie took him down with a good uppercut.

I think the "loser mentality" has left town. I credit the entire team but I credit Whitney for recognizing it and saying it like it is.

What a game ! This is the first time I have seen almost everything go the Oilers way so far this season . Bounces were going right to Oiler sticks all night long and the Sharks were playing so bad that their four best players were looking like chumps out there . Sharks even lost all the fights they probably should have won on paper .

Thank you thank you thank you hockey god for giving us this one game after a miserable season of failure .

* And since I'm usually slamming Horcoff and Moreau for having no hands whatsoever , I have to recognize that sweet passing play tonight . Well done old men . More please .

I know I am a little late to the party, but holy hell has Gilbert's play elevated since being paired with Whitney.

On Pisani's goal, he had the confidence to skate into the slot and get a good shot on goal. I believe if this was his first season with the Oilers, that shot would have gone in.

Well, Oilers management doesn't seem to agree with you on the competition thing since they've only run him out a handful of times this season (and watched him get torched in the process).

But I suppose if it wasn't for the awesome talents of the JDD/DD tandem we wouldn't be looking at a top two pick, so maybe it's all part of the plan.

Agreed, I think he needs that good skating, stable partner, much like Pitkanen, in order to be as effective as we know he can be, and right now Whitney's slid into that roll beautifully.

Yeah, Grebeshkov was that guy last year when he was playing well.

However, Whitney has slotted in and Gilbert is once again regaining form, confidence and that awesomeness that earned him a fat contract.

HAHAHAHA San Jose smells like beef and cheese and a first round exit.

I'm happy for DD and the way this team played tonight. I really like how Johnson has played and the same goes for Whitney, with a nice +3 on the night.

Today was a good day. Eberle picks up another goal, Calgary loses and Oilers win in style.

You can't anoint someone to be something. Anoint means pouring oil on oneself. I don't know what you guys are talking about.
Anyway, Dubnyk doesn't look bad- but let's not forget he had, what was it, 8 winless games before this? Deslauriers is still better IMO.

So what your saying is when paired with Whitney, Gilbert is turning his fat contract into a PHAT contract??

oilers better not screw this one up.

i bet most of those who say last place is in the bag are the same ppl who wanted the oil to tank last year, while the playoffs were still in reach.

not likely to lose last place, but its by no means in the bag...

The word has another meaning, see 2b in this:
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/anoint

Even though Little doesn't make hockey sense blaming our season on JDD/DD, he does seem to have used that word correctly.

Now that we're a lock for last I won't mind if we go on a good tear and ruin everyone's season. It's good for the team.

Really enjoying Whitney's play so far. He has really calmed down Gilberts game.

I'm pretty sure that's exactly who REA was going to mention but opted for the more recent Glenncross non-signing as a reminder, I could sense the struggle.

If we win the next 11 game (almost impossible), we end up with 75 points. The NYI & TB both have 68 points right now - if they lose every game (almost impossible), we just need to lose two games. If we lose three of the eleven, they can not end up #1...

Toronto has 64 points; 7-2-1 over the past ten games.....

We have 53 points... We will not pass them.

So true....

I keep kicking chairs whenever I think of Hejda & how the Oilers messed up......

But GlenX is a great example....

As I said in the GDT, the Murray hit on Peckham reminded me of the Ovechkin hit on Campbell. Too bad the NHL won't suspend Murray because Peckham is just on a call-up and not making $7 million a year for many more years.
