Flames at Oilers, G4/08-09

Word in the thread below that Marc Pouliot was on 2line RW at practice today. I’m saying the rosary and am in Calgary rounding up virgins (no easy feat, apparently) for sacrifice.

I haven’t cheered for someone named Poo this much since I read my kids the Winnie the Pooh books a decade ago. Also (from Quain below) Gagner is day-to-day and may not play tonight.

I like this team, even with the holes. There was an item in the paper today about Souray having an injury and he didn’t play after a time last night, so possibly Smid draws in and gets a chance tonight on D.

If the Oilers win this game, that’s a tell. Even 4 games in. These games have not been against the Oakland Seals, these games have shown the team has some weaknesses but appear to have some new strengths.

Depth up front, more NHL players than normal, and a kickass powerplay.

Now, back to the Pouliot project. Hail Mary, full of grace, the lord is with thee……

    I really think some where in the range of .920 by the age of 23 seems like it could be the line.

    Tim Thomas didn’t hit .920 until he was 29. To me that makes him an outlier, but WTF do I know?

    Interesting digs on the minor league stats, btw. I did raise an eyebrow at how the guys you chose seemed to have universally high Sv% in the high minors, though, so dug up a few more.
