I hope I do not get two score predictions correct in a row!

That said, I'm happy to see I'm not part of a meager 7% of this site that has little to no optimism heading into tonight's tilt. That really surprised me Monday.

Is it just me, or too many years of watching Oilers hockey or this season is becoming like a broken record? Besides my own random illusions of optimism over the years, there are not a lot of tangible bright spots along the road.

The Oilers are like a lukewarm shower. Sure it's not ice cold, but you keep wishing someone could turn the temperature up because it's just not good enough.

Prior to opening this site back in 96, I would find any way to watch or listen to the games. My streak of watching 90%+ Oilers game each season has ended in 09-10. Most years I'd buy the entire PPV package without thinking, this season I have not bought one and will not be again tonight.


That analogy is pretty much spot on. Well put.

I've become so disinterested in the Oilers over the past couple seasons that it literally bothers me. I'm not totally disinterested by any means, but you compare me from 2007 and anytime prior to that and now, and it's a huge difference. Back in the day I didn't get SNW, but if you put the channel on you could watch it in black and white with no sound. That's how I watched Oiler games for two years. Now I have HD and a lot of times I find myself skipping, or at least fast forwarding through a bunch of games.
