Game Day "Avalance"

7 Days before the 2011 NHL Draft, I photo shopped this picture of RNH into a picture inside Rexall Place and added the Oiler emblem. Once that was completed I had this picture put onto the front of my white NHL draft shirt with Nugent-Hopkins name on the back and his number 93. Turned out I was right and the rest for me was history. It was no secret that I was a believer in this young hockey player's success this year and that he would not be returning to Jr. I had predicted he would get anywhere between 8-10 points in his first 9 games. No word on the official call from the Oilers brass, but who are we fooling? Nobody, that's right.
 Taylor Hall tweeted on the plane trip to Colorado
Taylor Hall
New equipment guy for the year
.
My guess? While there was no announcement made to us the fans, he has been told and Hall was teasing him about his new job for the YEAR. Like I said last blog, this team makes things so much nicer to follow, cause they are just being real. Living life as it should be, playing in the greatest sport to you and I in the world.
Now, with RNH receiving so much attention due to being a rookie this year, how about say we talk some about Hall and Eberle? Umm..nope! Going to save that for next game day post on Sunday. Exciting year in Oil Country, hold onto your hats! Or should I say 'get ready to throw some more hats this year?' Personally I am expecting a game real soon where not only our new 'Pipeline' is scoring but also the rest of the crew not named Ryan.
My predictions for tonight's game in Denver. Gametime 7:00pm CHED630am/Sportsnet-Edm
REV'S Edmonton Oiler
Gameday Predictions Oct 28th/11


1. RNH will once again post at least 1 more point to make it a point a game through now 10 games and officially kick off a incredible season. (unless he gets sat out, since they have not officially said he is staying up for the season..lol)
2. Dubynk will post the win fighting hard to keep pace with Habby his mentor.
3. Belanger should not have been schooled by the Capitals in the faceoff dot so will yet again predict him with yet another 57% or better % when the game is done.(don't let me down Eric, or that's two in a row)
4. A minimum of  8 penalty calls will come into play as the winning goal will be on a PP.
5. Paarjarvi See's at least 13 minutes of ice time this game. (here is hoping he gets a point as well).

(EV'S PREDICTIONS TO DATE: 14 FOR 25)
Can't believe Belanger only got 50% in faceoffs last game and Potter played less. Could have really brought up my %. I am  now batting 56% on my predictions but to be a true predictions guru I need to see that around the 75% mark.

As the great Ed Whalen used to say "In the meantime and in between time, that's it, for another edition of...REV'S PREDICTION" (bolded words are not Whalen's words)
