    - Pretty sure this is my first GDT. I copied this guy who's awesome at it, so by association It'll be pretty good.

    - IIRC, this will be the first meeting of Taylor Hall and Cal Clutterbuck since Hall played the role of karma.

    - Rosters will be updated as information trickles in. Oilers lineup is unconfirmed and going off last game. Starter is unconfirmed.

    - Sam Gagner is seeking medical clearance and is headed back to Edmonton to meet with his doctors.[/fieldset]

    If you're making a Soli theme, you should change "Deserted" to "lonely"

    Ta-dah! Acronym!

    ( you don't count the single a's)

    Not that you're lonely Soli. Any L word would do...

    Am I just digging a bigger hole?

    Last time I said we'd be outscored by 7 and we were outscored by 1.

    This time, I'm shooting for....

    We'll be outcored by 25!

    That'll get us wining!

    Islanders by 20!

    Edm is paying 2.40 on pro line. I like the line-ups too.

    I saw a dream where LaBarbera was in the net and he only allowed one goal. Don't remember if we won or lost but hopefully that was an omen. :handclap:

    2-1. Hemsky, Belov - Moulson

    Oilers lose 9999999-0

    Hall ends up in tears at the end and thinks why did I have to sign that new Long-term contract.

    This. A thousand times this.

    Isles take it handily 4-1. They are a very underrated squad IMO, last year's playoff berth was no fluke

    I am going to be at the game. My son and some of his buddies from college will be with me, Andrew Miller's brother among them. Really looking forward to the game, think we have a shot if we play like Tuesday night.

    Sitting in section 124 if anyone else is there.

    Sitting in Row E, 5 rows up from the ice just above the end the Oilers shoot at twice. Paid $32 per ticket including handling. Last time they threw in a hot dog and beer for the same price! Guess the Islanders are getting better because the cost of attending has gone up!;)

    It's kinda crazy to think about it as the 8th game of the season, but I'm starting to think this game is a must win. We need a W.

    Pretty sure we lose again because our goalies will let us down yet again. Just once this year I'd like to see them steal a game for us.

    Well the players are believing in Eakins so far and think wins are going to come in bunches soon. That's a good sign.

    Interesting to know who starts. If Eakins starts JL then that's a message to MacT

    "They played better than the scoreboard showed"

    "They deserved a better outcome"

    "Did some good things"

    "It's just going to take some time"

    "Young, speedy Oilers..."

    lol. you're right. we've been hearing these things for years.

    That's why many of us are constantly negative.
    It's far past time for the team to be getting wins, instead of trying to find silver linings in another loss.

    This is the year by far where it's show time, and the Oilers have shown very little so far. again.

    Blame the goalies. They're the reason we are doing so poorly.

    Hey I am feeling this is the day we will turn the corner. If you take away the freak plays and sub average goaltending we would be doing pretty good. They played really well until the dive by RCN Crosby. The Oilers eek one out although it is first time in Brooklyn . So and better choice GDT would have been the Beastie Boys... No Sleep til Brooklyn just sayin Go Oil.. well damn they have not moved yet they are still in the dump known as Nassau oh well....
