The Big 100 - Beers & Jeers Oilers Recap vs Wild (12/23/09)

Welcome to Oilers Jambalaya - An Edmonton Oilers Hockey Blog. Beers & Jeers is a dual collaboration between Smokin' Ray and Paq Twinn. We hope you enjoy our Edmonton Oilers full game recap.


- Who's Out? Who's in? No player changes as the roster stays the same as last game. The lines change but not the roster.  Strudwick is the only healthy scratch.

- This is the 100th Beers & Jeers that I have written.  I'm happy to make it to 100.  It's a huge accomplishment for Oilers Jambalaya. YAY! *balloons fall*

Shawn Horcoff - The dumbass took a lazy hooking penalty and cost the Oilers some momentum. In fact all it did was give the Wild momentum.  Terrible leadership on his part.  How come the younger players never take any BTP?

Robert Nilsson - All in all Bobby played pretty solid.  I liked his goal and he didn't really make many mistakes.  He played limited minutes but managed to make an impact. Good for him. He's been good since returning from injury.  Good game Bobby. How about a cold beer? Cheers!

Jeff Deslauriers - Jeff came in and played a heck of a game.  He was the Oilers best player and kept them in it right up to the end.  It's just too bad that the Oilers just couldn't score tonight or this could have been a win.  Stand up job Jeff.  It's Miller time... Cheers!

Sheldon Souray - I liked how he played.  He was a lot better this game rather than the last one.  He ended up +1 and played 20:06 despite sitting for 5 for fighting.  I liked that fight as well.  It was a couple of old balls slinging the knuckles.  I always love it when Shelly shows his emotion.  I like the way he leads. How about a frosty mug of Stella? Thought so... *high five* Cheers!

Tom Gilbert - Gilbert has been pretty good for the last while and he hasn't got much credit.  I liked they was he's been playing and I guess so has Quinn.  I was a little surprised that he led the team with 25:15 of ice time.  Wow! That says a lot from a guy like Quinn.  He picks up an assist and blocks 3 shots. The guy even had 2 decent hits.  Who the hell is this guy? Care for a Budweiser and a new pair of shoes Gibby? Cheers!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Sam Gagner (He was pretty good.  He had 4 shots and went 7W-4L=64% on faceoffs.), Ryan Stone (Had a good fight and ended +1),



Patrick O'Sullivan - Were you expecting two other guys to be here?  Yeah your right O'Sullivan... it's not your fault. Booooooo!

Shawn Horcoff - No shots? A -2? No hits?  Umm... I think you need to do more than that in order to not get booed.  Brutal bad game by Horcoff.  He topped it off by taking a stupid hooking penalty with 5:00 minutes to go.  How is the team supposed to build momentum when they have to kill off you penalty? Boooooo!




Smokin' Ray - What a crappy way to start Christmas.  Thanks for the loss guys.  And here I thought that this game would be a good one... you know... it's the 100th Beers & Jeers.  The Oilers played well enough to win but couldn't score.  It's too bad because I really thought that they could do it.  But they didn't and now it's time to focus on our own families.  Let's just try and not be depressed.  so let's all get drunk and have a great Christmas.  Happy Holidays everyone.  See you all on Boxing Day.

Paq Twinn - Hmm....uuuhhhh.....well......ummm, how do put this delicately?. For the 2nd game in a row, the Oilers were out played by (no disrespect) a team that should be below us. When I say should be, I mean ideally. This team just proved that everyone, that has said how inconsistently brutal this team is, was RIGHT. Like really, how do you win 5 in a row on the road then come home and absolutely shit the bed and wind up losing the next 5 games. Only in Edmonton could you possibly say that you weren't surprised. It really is unfortunate that Mr. Tambellini has some SERIOUS thinking to do, during the holidays. But its time to fish or cut bait, sir. Game Grade: D

Merry Christmas everyone.
