Taylor Hall must learn to stay on his feet, unless he's going to crash and burn out of hockey.
Oilers will be without Taylor Hall from the look of things. Terrible, sad, inevitable news. Unless Taylor Hall learns how to play hockey without falling on the ice ten times a game, he's going to have a frustrating and short career. Anyway, oiler's(I refuse to capitalise this until they start playing like a real hockey team instead of losers, sheesh) with Hall I figured were good to spit the next 8 points coming up, with games against the Yotes, Preds, Bolts, and Florida. oilers win streak comes to an end next game, either way it's a 4 point week until March 24, 2012. Then, they will have 67 points. New scary team to watch out for with the tank: Islanders. Habs, after seeing how good the oil were at tanking, decided not to bother, and
HUNTER1909'S FEARLESS PREDICTION FOR OILERS TOTAL POINTS TO BE GAINED BETWEEN MARCH 1 AND MARCH 17, 2012:
Oiler's current point total: 56
add: Oiler's expected
points total 7 points
Total amount of points Oiler's expected to have by march 17, 2012: 63 points.
TOP TANKING RIVAL = Montreal Canadiens! All the best, Jean Beliveau let's hope the Habs can win a few for you between March 1 and 17. You guys play nearly all BAD teams, and most are Canadian; Also at least 2 games with Buffalo, all which guarantee at least 2 points between the teams on the night. Oilers need to make up ground here for sure!
hunter1909 1-0 record so far: last time, predicted oilers would end up with 57 points. therefore: WIN 1-0 record; next hunter1909's prediction on March 18, 2012.
Having calculated how many points yours truly expects the oilers(lower case until they start playing properly) to end up with close to or near to:
By the end of February.
As a wholehearted proponent of tanking the season(the higher oilers pick, the better likelihood of them adding another genius), am concerned about the following teams in the race for 29th: Buffalo worries me the most.
I haven't been watching the Oilers too carefully this year, thank fuck.
Barry Trotz should be poached from the Nashville Predators. Dude knows what day it is.
Tom Renney is a bad coach. Anyone can have superstars(he gets zero credit for the Kid Line). Renney's fucked up the Swedes, and all of those other things like pulling the goalie last night. he's lost the team, and needs to go.
Shawn Horcoff is a washed up third liner, who should be in the AHL, or pressbox. If I was the coach I'd bench him, at least make him a healthy scratch.
