In Topic: Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

05 December 2014 - 09:35 AM

Eakins is NOT the man for the job. And this losing - whoever's side you're on - is gonna bite the Oilers in the ass for a few seasons if this nonsense continues.

He gets into it with the media - fine. Nothing new there. but he also gets into with the players - in front of the fans and he isn't very respecting of the Oilers history, or at least that's what they're saying out west.


Whether or not this is Eakins fault, he's gotta go. And it's only making hockey fans more confused as to why one the greatest franchises is allowing this crap to continue. The kids looked confused most nights out there. Who is their leader, because Eakins has lost them already. 2 seasons and he's proven he can;t cut it.


You never wanna see the Oilers or Habs in such disarray, being 2 of the greatest franchises sports have seen. 

In Topic: Wings great Gordie Howe resting after 'serious stroke'

Sad news. Gordie has lived a long, illustrious life.

I hope he lives out his last years down in TX surrounded by his family and friends and not in too much pain.

Boy oh boy, to be stricken with Alzheimer's - forgetting those around you day by day is really, really tough.


Prayers to him and his family.

In Topic: 10/23 GDT : Penguins 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Great character win. They stayed with it, and OT rewarded them. 

To beat the pretenders from Pittsburgh - who were falsely handed a Cup in 2009 they never earned - what a great night. Did Crosby cry again? Did he call his momma? Phaneuf and Crosby see each time they face Zetterberg what the C really means. But they never learn.

I'm pretty sure the Illitch's, along with the other successful owners, don't like shelling out millions to support a failing business regardless if they can use that money to add more players, it's still their money.

The salary cap doesn't exist to bail out teams. It exists, because in a perfect world, similar salary structure equals competitive teams. It doesn't always work out that way but  that's why teams have them. Not so there is extra money to bail out teams. 

In Topic: TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

16 October 2014 - 08:09 AM


I'm officially calling for a 2015 TANK job. I think we can all agree, there is absolutely NOTHING to amp us up and get excited about in the upcoming season. Literally, NOTHING. 
Instead of praying for another 8th seed finishing of limping into the playoffs and getting decimated in the 1st round, I would much rather hope for an absolute tank and hopefully get a top 3 draft pick. Not only will this give us all something to get excited for, but it might also spark some much needed change in the organization's management. 
Who's with me?  #Tankit2014


I've forwarded this to Kenny and I am waiting for his response. Seems like a pretty logical thing to do, three games into this season.
