Ray Ferraro: "Are you kidding me!?"

This goofball has won three straight games with three straight overtime winners. Anyone care to calculate odds on that? The kids were flying tonight (including Laddy Smid, who was skating well). Is Sam Gagner already the best passer on this team?

PS: We'll just stay in the moment and kindly sidestep the blown 3-goal lead, along with the Oilers being badly outplayed for most of the game. Mathieu Garon's groin may have to be bronzed.

As happy as I am about the win I was disgusted with penner tonight. No effort at all, never strays into difficult areas of the ice, just awful stuff. And I'm not a penner hater, I thought he had turned the corner 15 games ago, but tonight seeing Nilsson, Cogs and Gagner going into tough positions and seeing penner float around just turned my stomach.

I don't really understand Penner haters, anyway. The guy kinda sucks but it's not his fault our braindead GM offered him a fucking billion dollars a year. Also, somehow these kids have won 7 of their last 8. It bodes well for the future that the boys still have the heart to play in a scrubbed season. Good job, kids.

Fairbairn: nice to see you poking around here. Mr. Quotidian, Hypnopomp; still one of my favorite undergraduate memories. Did you know that Gunnars published a book about writing? Made me think of Gretzky publishing a book on playing baseball.

Tonight's game was a wee bit schizophrenic. But it was lovely seeing goals come both from somewhat unexpected quarters and from Cogs. The kids look like they're having fun. It's hard not to have fun along with them these days.

Whoa. Calm down there, dude. 83 is still the best passer--and player--on this team, by a large margin. You're just horny after that win. It will pass.

Smid had a pretty nice rush there. I think that's first time I've ever seen anything from him that I'd consider offensive skill, but that was pretty slick. Though I guess even Matt Greene has had his moments.

You're just horny after that win.

Speaking of which, Andrew Cogliano is the sexiest man in hockey.

Damn night classes...Oh well, coming back home after a night of drinking to find another OT win is a good compensation for sobriety.

The proper diminutive form of Ladislav is "Laco", which to my ear is much preferable to Laddy.

Your attention in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

I will make the necessary adjustments.

Wait:you don't understand why people hate a guy who you concede:

a)sucks, and
b)is making "a fucking billion dollars a year"?

How much simpler could it be?

"Speaking of which, Andrew Cogliano is the sexiest man in hockey."

My wife disagrees, she says he's good-looking in a swarthy way, but it's Moreau and Penner she's sweet on.

I'm with Grabia: Hemsky is still the best passer wearing the Oil-drop, but coming in second or third to him is not at all shameful, especially for an 18 year old just out of juniors.

The Oilers have had worse PP specialists than Penner.
