Meh. Go McPoints. Other than that, do we care to win any more games this year? So pissed off that we're here again.

If you're wondering why the Oilers are here again just take a look at the official website. 3 "news" stories about the greatest team ever nostalgia event followed by the pre-game story followed by a dozen or so more stories about the greatest team ever. The team betrays itself, the focus is elsewhere.

Well, it's not like they're going to get another one on the ice. I have no idea why people are still going to these things.

It would be nice to see a win. But in reality, it doesn't really matter much. They went on a 3 game road trip, all against divisional opponents ahead of them. If they wanted to have any shot at doing the next to impossible and have a chance to get into the playoffs, they had to win all 3. They lost all 3.

But the real question is - does Keegan get to have his Oilers debut in front of all of his dad's old buddies?

I could really careless if Lowe plays or not. The last name says it's a brutal move because we have to hate on the Oilers. Apparently he has played very well in the minors and deserves the call up. So far, Benning, Davidson, Auvitu, Sekera, Klefbom haven't exactly done a whole hell of a lot to deserve not missing a game for him. Sekera apparently has some issue. Maybe his knee is sore or he's got a bad case of "I'm playing like garbage". But he's got the last name of Lowe so I should hate.

In fairness, Davidson does not deserve to be listed in that group. He's been steady when in.

OK sure. He's been OK at times. If I were to rank the Oilers dmen this year, it would be Nurse, Russell/Larsson, then the rest. I believe you can flip flop Larsson and Russell either way. Russell isn't a spectacular dman and never will be but he's done what he was brought in to do which was bring steady mins. The contract isn't great, mostly for the term and one can argue that he is taking the place of a right handed guy - who that is I have no clue - but even the biggest Russell hater can't say he's been the problem this year. Larsson isn't available due to the death of his dad and sounds like we won't see him until March. But my point is, other than those 3, no one has played overly well where f they got taken out, anyone should get bent out of shape and see it as an injustice.

Not that it matters now but I wonder if we were int the thick of a playoff race if Lars would be taking this much time off or if he would have been back right away for his Brett Favre moment.

Hard to say.

Larsson is 25 yrs old. His dad was just 50. I am sure give the distance, they don't see each other a ton for a lot of the year. His dad comes over to visit and he ends up dying here out of no where. If that was me, that would rattle me pretty good.

There's a nice quote in this article about Keegan wanting to prove people wrong by making it on his own back when he got drafted.

I'm with you, from what I've heard from guys reviewing the Condors, he's been pretty good, I won't be booing if he takes to the ice.

Possibly after though.

I am sure I will be excused of being a sunshine and rainbows guy for the Oilers management because I don't immediately hate on the Oilers for everything like is currently popular to do. But the name on the jersey means nothing to me. I don't care who his dad is, you either can play or you can't. To me he looks like another defensive dman who shoots left. The Oilers have a ton of those. Maybe he can be more, maybe he can't. Only one way to find out, let him play. What's the worst that can happen, they lose another game? They seem to have mastered that again this season. In my opinion, the Oilers are not in the position to be turning their noses up to anyone player. They need all the help they can get. So find out if he is useful, or get rid of him.

I've heard that other teams have a scouting staff that determines if a player is any good before signing him. Understandable if the Oilers don't, that would explain the Strome trade.

Yeah, I don't think there's a lot of ~25 year old defencemen with 2 NHL games to their name and nary a point in either, averaging about 1 point every four AHL games and with reputations of footspeed issues that are true diamonds in the rough who end up starring with an NHL team later...

His trajectory isn't terribly different from Eric Gryba's. Similar production and Gryba became an NHLer only a few months before where Keegan is at now, but Gryba had size on his side which will always get you another look with an NHL team.

I don't think anyone is going to boo the kid. I'd be disappointed if they did. However, I think the player archetype is one that's incredibly easy to find so when it's the kid of the Vice-Chair, and in an organization where there's a Gretzky brother in management, a Chiarelli and a Messier brother in scouting and they regularly hire all their old buddies and give them random VP roles within the organization, it's going to get questioned as to whether this really was the best player available or only the one most closely related to Daryl Katz's right hand man.

Given the fact that you aren't the only Oiler fan to have this exact line of thinking, you honestly think he won't get booed just because of his name? No disrespect but I think you are kidding yourself if you think there won't be some fans who boo him strictly because of his name.

I can see people booing him. There's a lot of righteous frustration with what Lowe has had a hand in doing to the Oilers. I'm not sure how you can make playing Keegan palatable for the fans. Maybe you could start him on the road first to get us plebs used to the idea? Even if the team does that, he still has to play above his ability with that name on his jersey.

The only good that'll come from this is he can't have number 4 thanks to Lowe and company tanking the franchise.

I think they were a pair last game, interesting to say the least!

I just want McD to finish the year feeling good about playing the game of hockey, regardless of wins or losses. I don't want him souring on the Oilers.

r. They need all the help they can get. So find out if he is useful, or get rid of him.

Yes, why condemn him before you see what he can do. Can't be any worse than some of our other under achievers.

Meh. Go McPoints. Other than that, do we care to win any more games this year? So pissed off that we're here again.

If you're wondering why the Oilers are here again just take a look at the official website. 3 "news" stories about the greatest team ever nostalgia event followed by the pre-game story followed by a dozen or so more stories about the greatest team ever. The team betrays itself, the focus is elsewhere.


Apparently they hung another banner last night. Seriously - a banner over a stupid fan vote.

Brutal.

Well, it's not like they're going to get another one on the ice. I have no idea why people are still going to these things.


These events are basically job recruitment fairs now aren't they? Can't blame some of these old guys for coming that didn't make nearly the amount even 4th liners make today.

After a night after a self congratulatory **** "rub", the Oilers with a bright light on the past have the current team roll in here to perform in front of "the band". Great they got a banner raised because any one of significance will be a long way off, if ever.

Play for pride? Play for ? I'm not sure, and this season highlights the reason I don't play the oilers score game.. I'm bad at it, like the Oilers have been bad at hockey.

Lost 3, and while it was great they got the tie, there has to be a reason for the crumbing losses and late period ties.

Davidson is not the problem, he's bee great since his call up. Why is Auvitu a defensman? Benning took a major step back this season. Larsson is dealing with family issues. Sekera is still not 100% with his knee. Nurse is progressing but can't do it all. Russell, as much as people hate him blocks shots, he can barely play (better than Auvitu can).

Welp, I save money of playoff tickets so... bright side?

I think Gretzky has the appropriate expression for last night:

I wasn't on the "Is Gretzky drunk" bandwagon but after seeing this picture there is no doubt he is on the bottle big time, I blame this team, rather he knows its Lowe or MacT or Chia or Todd he knows this team is F'd big time.

Actually, Mess has that look for an SS uniform as well, but that 'do of Gretzky's does show up in the WWII docs on Netflix.

Damn you all.

But at least I know how widespread the pain is that I can cause with large images :)
