    SAVING PRIVATE JONES

    The Edmonton Oilers are about to embark upon the Great Crusade. The pursuit of the top of the North Division, from where along the way they will have to start by liberating Vancouver from the clutches of referee baiting, diving hockey players and fans who burn their own city down when they lose.

    Scene 2.png

    D-Day has come.

    Captain Tippett leads the invasion from his landing craft, filled with anxious Oilers about to hit the beach under heavy fire. Landing taxis follow on with reserves.

    Along the way Tippett asks Sgt Nurse to let Lt Klefbom know to prepare his defence. However, Sgt Nurse has bad news for Captain Tip. Klefbom got hit in basic training, and is out for the invasion.

    Captain Tip lets Nurse know he is now leading the group and wants to know if his defence is ready.

    Nurse replies yes, all but Jones. He is in one of the follow up taxis.

    Tippett doesn't seem to acknowledge this or even know who Jones is.

    Scene 3.png

    They hit the beach under heavy fire. Pvt Khaira storms in ahead of the group and easily takes care of the first defences. PFC Kassian informs Captain Tippett however in climbing over the side of the landing craft, Kassian breaks his hand much to the chagrin of the embedded reporter Jim Matheson.

    Kassian is out of the invasion. Casualties are beginning to mount.

    Captain Tippett calls in a reserve taxi but its immediately hit by Flames, taking out Pvt. 4K for the duration of the invasion. More troubling, PFC Yamamoto is also hit by Flames, however it looks like he might be ok once he gets to an aid station.

    Private Jones informs Captain Tippett he is ready to go!

    Captain Tippett, dazed by a flying puck, is not responding!

    He now pulls PFC James Neal out of the invasion for scoring 2 goals! Captain Tippett must recover his senses fast or this invasion could spell the end of his troops!

    Scene 5.png

    Tippett comes to his senses not a moment too late. Realizing he has lost both Lt Klefbom and Pvt 4K from his defence along with Pvt Kassian for the invasion, he commands Sgt. Nurse to call up Private Lagesson from the reserve taxis.

    Sgt. Nurse bellers out the command under heavy fire.

    The defence is pinned down in their own end and needs to clear the beach fast. The Canuck bunker must be taken out!

    Private Jones lets Captain Tippett know he is ready to go in!

    Tippett responds with......silence.

    "Yessir" yells Pvt Lagesson but as soon as he goes over the top he is hit in the wrist and goes down. "He will probably be ok but for now, he is out", Sgt Nurse yells over to Captain Tippett.

    "Get Bear" commands Tippett in his deepest command voice.

    Private Jones runs up behind Captain Tippett, and taps him on the back. "Sir, Private Jones reporting for duty, sir!"

    Nothing...

    "Bear, clear the beach and take some of our best defence and clear that bunker!" bellows Sgt Nurse.

    Along the way Private Jones moves to intercept Turris and gets him in the knee!

    "Fratricide! Friendly Fire! Jones you got me in the knee, I'm out!"

    Private Jones is despondent. He thinks Tippett will never put him in now!

    However Corporal Russell consoles the young defenceman. "Good one kiddo" he says. "He was useless anyway, always in the wrong spot. He would have gotten one of us killed".

    Bear exclaims" C'mon Guys! We gotta blow that Canucks bunker!" and leads the charge!

    Corporal Russell lets Captain Tippett know Bear is down! Captain Tippett asks for the Russian kid Samorukov to be brought up from the reserve taxis however Nurse informs him he was hit early on and is out!

    Captain Tippett checks his notes and says "Lennstrom! Get Lennstrom up here Nurse!"

    Nurse informs Tippett that Lennstrom reserve taxi is still 2 weeks out. "How about that Jones kid Captain? He's pretty good!"

    "Who? Jones? Whose that?" Says Tippett.

    "Jones! Private Caleb Jones sir!"

    "I'm right here sir! Ready and willing and able" Jones exlaims!

    Nurse leans over to Jones. "Lead the way Private!"

    "LETS GO BOYS!!!"

    Jones along with the rest of the Oiler Defence clear the beach and make it to the Canucks bunker. blowing it sky high!

    Lieutenant Smith, protecting the Oilers net at the far end of the beach, yells for his comrades to let them all burn!!!!!
    He is an ex Flame after all.

    Private Jones and the rest of the Oilers clear their end, take the beach and blow the bunkers.

    AFTERMATH

    Standing in liberated downtown Vancouver, ruined by rioting Canucks fans after their team lost the beach and had their bunkers blown, the victorious Oiler Defence with Captain Tippett surveys their surroundings, happy to have made it.

    The casualties were heavy, the fighting was fierce, however the Oilers remain VICTORIOUS.

    The vibe I get from this GDT. Very well done by the way.

    Or maybe like Stan from the Eminem song?

    I don't post much in these pre game threads but all I want win or lose is for EDM to continue the hard work and strong work ethic. It's one of the things any eventual true contender needs to be successful. Too much this team over the years has been super fragile and the first sign of a struggle they hang their heads.

    Leafs get shutout by the Flames, perfect opportunity to grab 2 and get closer to the lead and put some distance between the teams with games in hand. Just keep winning!!!
    I'd love another blowout.

    Honey Badger storming the beach, lol!

    I've forgotten about the Canucks already, are they playing well or still in the toilet?

    Another fantastic GDT, @5 Mins 4 Ftg!!

    2 game losing streak, 2nd last in the Division 2-6-2 in their last 10. I'd say that's pretty much garbage.

    Canucks actually have looked decent last little bit. They scare me more than the Flames to be honest

    They had a good series with the Flames before those losses to Winnipeg. I wouldn’t sleep on them.

    Tippett never even used his timeout to win that battle. I don't think he ever knew he had one with him.

    @Ginger Papa You guys are ze Germans (yes, I know we have the actual Krauts on our team, but don’t let that confuse you) in this scenario and Canadian shock troopers are coming **** you guys up and storm the beach.

    We shall liberate those in Canucksland with a swift and total victory over the tyranny of the orca and westcoast hippies with their uncleanliness and desire to have no power in their homes or gas in their vehicles.

    Jokes aside, good luck tonight brother. Hopefully it’s a good one. I’ll have to check out your GDT as you’re the one drafting it eh?

    Fantastic GDT @5 Mins 4 Ftg

    Granted, their only 2 wins in their last 11 games were against the imploding Flames, so we don't really know where they are. They aren't getting blown out anymore though and have been tightening up the shot clock differential so it should be a tough game for the Oilers. Their skill players don't need much to get the puck in the net, so we need more the defensive version of the Oilers than the offensive version.
