    That was a helluva lockout.

  2. Lowetide says:

    It was like a 24-hour flu that threatened the mortgage.

    Assholes.

    19-9

    Captain Happy,

    He wasn’t talking to you, although I can see how you’d make that mistake.

  6. Ivan says:

    Looks like TSN will show Oiler 5 games for us out-of towners- including Jan 22 vs SJ and 24th vs LA.

    Decent.

    Aw, come on, Darcy can lose a bet all by himself.

    Yikes- 9 consecutive road games in 15 days. Feb 25- Mar 12. Includes 2 back-backs.

  9. striatic says:

    that’s CFR week, i believe.

    they get an equally long home stand to follow, but that road trip will make or break the season.

  10. Woodguy says:

    Captain Happy: 19-9

    I wish 83 had a few more games to make it up.

    Probably a close finish.

    LA will start slow and Brown’s point source Kopitar is probably out for the first 5 games or so.

    Brier.

    CFR happens in the fall.

    ZING!

  13. bookje says:

    Lockout is over? Damn, I am only half way though my puzzle. When is the next lockout? I can just set it aside until then.

  14. bookje says:

    Wow, training camp coverage tomorrow I guess…

  15. jake70 says:

    For the first time in 3 years, I don’t have that strange dirty feeling having satisfaction in all the losing, adhering to that model of a rebuild in order to obtain TOP talent. WIN GAMES!

    Yeah, Brown will likely have Richards or Carter as his C.

    Should be devastating.

  17. Lowetide says:

    Oilers can’t find ice. So you’ll get pictures of physicals and Gene’s clever word plays.

  18. commonfan14 says:

    T-minus 9 minutes to signings and trades…

  19. bookje says:

    Ooooh, and trades and stuff, trades will probably start happening tomorrow.

  20. bookje says:

    Think he can work his first ‘Hemmer and Nail’ pun into the fitness testing?

  21. Lowetide says:

    That’s easy. Its “Schultz” and “I know nothing” that’ll take some thinking.

  22. Woodguy says:

    Captain Happy: Yeah, Brown will likely have Richards or Carter as his C.

    Should be devastating.

    Neither of those 2 have shot a puck in anger for over 6 months.

    They’ll start slow.

    Right.

    How will Horcoff do?

  24. Woodguy says:

    Captain Happy: Right.

    How will Horcoff do?

    83 isn’t playing with 10. Krueger isn’t dumb or old-school.

  25. Captain Happy says:

    Woodguy: 83 isn’t playing with 10.Krueger isn’t dumb or old-school.

    Wellwood?

    LOL.

  26. bookje says:

    Right now there are a bunch of GM’s texting one another – “You Up?”

  27. Captain Happy says:

    Strombone ‏@strombone1

    Guys I’ve just been dealt……….. POCKET ACES! #latenightpoker

  28. Schitzo says:

    Anyone know if there will be any open days during training camp? Given the timeframe I doubt it, but who knows.

  29. Wes Mantooth-11 says:

    I’m waiting to see Tambo’s”WoW” trade.

    I have my suspicions that this was completely hot air and nothing more than something to create to pass the time.

    If the Oilers going to make trades, the next couple days will tells how serious they are.

  30. Ivan says:

    Wow, free popcorn and beverages (?) too!
    We totally forgive you NHL……

  31. Gerta Rauss says:

    @Real_ESPNLeBrun: For this season only – trade deadline will be April 3 while free agency opens July 5

  32. bookje says:

    Wes – about a month ago Bob Stauffer noted that the deal was no longer in place. There was something about needing to have it done by Dec 1st. It may have been hot air, but regardless, no sense waiting for ‘it’, though others might occur and you and I won’t know the difference.

    As per trades=seriousness about trades, I disagree. You can be very serious about making a deal and if you don’t find the right return, you are better off to stick with what you have.

  33. Wes Mantooth-11 says:

    bookje,

    Sorry Bookje wasn’t aware of the WOW trade being rescinded my bad.

    While I agree with you making a bad trade is no way to run a team the Oilers needs dictate they have to do something.
    Or, do we run into issues on defense and forwards again this season?

    Jones is out already, we have to put an AHL player into the lineup, another injury and we have to move players into the line up where they shouldn’t be playing, this has been going on for three years.

    If the Oilers are serious they will fix this issue before having to fix the issue internally. IMO

  34. bookje says:

    Wes – Ralph Kruger is here – he is going to make it all work – it’s going to be awesome man – just get on the bus and stop thinking about it – its going to be amazing!

  35. Wes Mantooth-11 says:

    bookje,

    The Oilers

    It’s akin to having a girl you like so bad come kick you right in the junk then tell you everything is going to be alright……….. and YOU believe it!

    Hoping for a better girlfriend.

    Since the fan club is small and no one posted it elsewhere.

    Two PP goals for BamBam last night in Stockton. Bring on the Lucic comparisons ;)

    Finally meaningful games in January.
