Sunday games for the Edmonton Oilers can sometimes be a car crash, a movie so unusual you wonder if you should be watching, listening to Astral Weeks at 4am, late night driving so tired you know pulling over is the better plan.
And yet this is a game they should win going away. Nashville has their problems and is sinking in the west, the Oilers have more actual NHL players than they’ve had at any time since Cinderella’s fairy Godmother waved her wand and turned Fernando Pisani into Guy Lafleur.
Lately, whenever I’ve stated something negative in a GDT the Oilers win and when I’m positive it’s epic fail time. Well, I’m stubborn. I don’t feel negative today. I feel like my team is going to finish in the top 6 in this western conference, that Steve Tambellini is going to make some trades to improve the left wing, improve the experience level at center, improve the depth on the blue and if need be grab some goalie insurance (Deslauriers has to play between now and the deadline and if it’s a circus they have to make a move).
No sir. I believe these Edmonton Oilers will win today. clap clap. And if Blue Velvet doesn’t do it, we’re going Eraserhead.
