    Seems like a bit of an overreaction on your part to what he said.

    I love watching both, the Oilers and Oak Island...drawing parallels here
    Both digging deeper holes with the hope of finding treasure, but not much results to show for...but i still watch religiously

    Thanks man, I'm on my cell so it'll be hard to keep everyone updated but I'll see what I can do tomorrow. You've met him and know how great of a son he is in my eyes.

    Apparently the part where Nurse "throws salt on the whole fanbase" as the poster I quoted observed.

    that nickname for our coach though - hopefully it doesn't stick otherwise things might get messy when the Oil starts to slide the wrong way...in the standings.

    My sons exact words after I told him that they won "they won one game they should get a cake" and "that's their first win in like 10 years". The sarcasm runs deep in the BBO household!

    Really weird dynamic with this team. The bottom line for me is that they either dont have the capability of playing with a consistently high battle level and staying engaged (being smart) or they dont have the commitment to do it.

    I am leaning to the latter at this point in time. We all know that this isnt going to last.

    I actually can't believe the Oilers are only 2 points back of WC2, and only 4 points back of WC1.

    lol, the West is so pathetic this year.

    No kidding...and its not just the Oilers who cant string together 2 wins.
    Just look at Anahiem....they have been worse.

    Something like 2 wins in their last what...18 games...and they are still in the hunt?

    Unbelievable.

    What will probably happen is that one of these turtle teams will end up getting hot at the right time and then upset a first place team in the playoffs.

    Well...I can say with 100% certainty.... (in the unlikely event it were to happen) THAT would make all of THIS worthwhile. :nod:

    Flames fans won't admit it, but you can bet not a single one wouldn't be nervous about a first round matchup against the Oilers.

    The Oilers winning that series would be pretty par for the course as far as Flames-Oilers playoff history goes.

    We were kinda close in 96-97 with Smyth and Tank at 13th and 24th. Even closer in 88-89 with Boy Wonder Carson at 7th and Kurri at 15.

    The last time we had two goal scorers in the top 10 was 86-87.

    Thanks for the great team Chia!

    Binnington is 8-1-1 since his AHL recall. That is why they are winning. Goaltending does marvellous things.

    I was just commenting the other day that this team could miss the playoffs with two 40 goal scorers.

    Chia had the easiest job in the world after drafting McDavid and still ****ed it up. All he had to do was find depth.

    I am not ashamed to admit it here and now. If the Oilers actually do make the playoffs and then go on to beat the Flames in the first round THAT would entirely make up for EVERYTHING thats happened so far this season.

    As a matter of fact its almost to good to think about. :D

    It would mean that Oilers fans could actually feel proud of their team instead of ashamed. :nod:

    The Oilers have pretty much always been there in the playoffs to derail a great Flames regular season.

    Pretty much every year except for 1986.
