L column tally number 2


video

Having PVR'd tonight's game, I was at the bar telling my Blackberry friends "Don't tell me the score!" which went to "Okay, I just saw Colorado players celebrating by accident on the bar's TV, what's the score?" to "Jesus Christ, 4-1!?" Pints followed... liquid pints of gold.

So yeah, what a rain of poo. I find myself in the uncomfortable position of hoping that Shawn Horcoff suffered a concussion rather than a knee injury... seriously, what are the Oielrs supposed to do without a guy like that? Call up Robbie Schremp?

Just imagine the profanity in a live blog tonight or last night. Lucky they were road games.
Too bad there are scads more road games.

Well, I still have "dink face" in an emergency glass case...

Funny thing, I just watched this scrap on TSN2, just as I was cruising through your site. (The definitive replay was just after you cut your clip.) Laperriere grabbed Stortini with BOTH ARMS, and Zack threw about 8 punches in short order. They were all close range punches but at least he was throwing, whereas Laperriere was just hanging on with both hands. So while his mocking was funny, it was Lappy who was doing the hugging (this time). Also, check out the fresh marks on Lappy's face as he exits the penalty box at the end of the clip.

For all that he's an aggravating little prick I do respect Laperriere, but sometimes he's just full of shit.

All of you blog people are responsible for Zack getting taunted like that. This is exactly what Gregor was talking about - your message hurts the team. Why don't you think about THAT mike w?

The team? What about the children?

The boy cried himself to sleep last night after seeing this.

Oh wait, that was me.

Well Laperriere is one lucky prick. The Linesmen keeps the puck in so they can score his goal or we would be going the other way. Is it me or has Ray F gotten a lobotomy since he went to TSN. With 4 to go in the 3rd... he was chirping about Steve Mac being out on the ice. Steve Mac knows his role and going in the last 5 minutes would get him shipped.
The Oilers are not getting any bounces but are not working hard enough to deserve a bounce. But I am not ready to panic.. it is early

Like that would even affect the team...I'm sure MacT doesn't give two shits if Mac has to miss one game on suspension.

Someone should just level Laperriere in the corner next time we play. Or knock out a few of his teeth. If Laperriere is going to talk he better man up to his words.

Yeah, Laperriere was mocking Stortini's reputation there, not the fight.

Mirtle had a post on enforcers a year or so ago, and they were almost universally sucking bag in terms of results. This despite playing mostly against the other team's depth and rarely going out for a defensive zone draw.

So compared to his peers in that regard, Stortini can play a bit. Or at least he's solid positionally. Unfortunately for him, Oiler fans like a fighter that throws haymakers and destroys somebody every once in a while.

I've been listening to a bit of talk radio lately, and Gregor has pretty much dedicated half his show to hockey fighting, it seems. And there is never a shortage of callers on the subject either. Go figure.

Notice how the Oil have stunk since Pleasure Motors' departure? Just sayin'.

Not only that, but this party sure has died.
