Humbug.

Columbus Blue Jackets 4
Edmonton Goddamn Oilers 0

Holy Good God, what a crappy team we have here.

Forget Dwayne Roloson's puck juggling and can-opener antics, where's Shawn Horcoff? Raffi Torres? Joffrey Lupul? Jarret Stoll? ...Ryan Smyth? Oh yeah, the dude breaks his effin' thumb, adding to the injury pile heap that already includes Ales Hemsky and Ethan Moreau. Bah!

These are dark days, indeed. I kind of forget how this team can actually be considered good. The Oil are as fragile a team I've ever seen, getting some chances early before utterly deflating after Alex Svitov's first period goal. At times, the likes of Petr Sykora, Patrick Thoresen or Toby Petersen were winning the puck along the boards, only to be momentarily confused, like a freshly neutered cat, forgetting how to actually finish the deal.


And don't get me started on the power play. Sheesh. Is the home stand over yet?
