Cave and Currie both looked like solid depth player yesterday. Still early but boy oh boy it would be nice to be surprised by the emergence of two depth forward options. If they play like they did last night, that's 2/3s of a 3rd line right there.

For interested parties: the pizza omelette was fine. Nothing life changing. Made mime with tomato slices and mushrooms. The pizza flavours definitely overpowered the omelette flavours. I might have been too generous with the sauce though. Also, melting the cheese kind of necessitates over cooking the omelette, so ehhh. I tried blasting it in the broiler to try and maintain a slight run in the middle but no dice. It tasted more like pizza with a terrible crust than a good hybrid. I guess I could see it morph into like a keto pizza alternative? If I was really craving pizza and only had eggs, marinara ingredients, and mozza I'd consider it, but I'd rather just get a pizza. Tasty enough, but probably won't add it to my breakfast repertoire.

6/10 would recommend for someone on an all egg diet who really wanted pizza.

Notice how the two players who scored goals in this game were players brought in very recently. I'm very pleased by how Keith is doing as interim GM. If he can make one more good "prove it" trade where he moves one of our dead weight contracts while adding some skill before the deadline, I'd like to see him interviewed for the full time GM job.

My only fear is that he has ties to the people that have been weighing us down in the back room for a decade.

I would reward good trades with a job, but he hasn’t done anything that is outstanding, nor proves that the OBC is over.

Anyone know where I can watch the outrun themed player intros they played before the third period last night? The YouTube channel for the Oilers only has the smoke on the water pre game hype video

Not even a whisper of a hearing. "That's just how Corey plays tho!" is probably their excuse

Look guys. The league didnt suspend a shoulder to the head hit. Are we surprised?

level 2

And of course everyone on r/hockey is saying its clean and makes contact with the chest first. Honestly what am I missing here?

level 2

SHOCKED I tell you, SHOCKED.

Let’s be honest the league and fans of the league hate us and there’s nothing we can do about it, I’m just happy we beat those losers last night

Seems like the team plays with more urgency without McDavid, I believe the last tear the Oilers went on were a while back when he was out a day with the flu and they won one?

I think you’re right. McDavid can’t be the whole team. He needs to be one of the guys, not THE guy.

level 2

Yep. Perhaps this is what the team needed (other than quality wingers and dmen). Stop relying on McDavid to get the job done.

I think the last time he was sick was when we played the Sabres back in January and we beat them 7-2.

Gagner called Currie “Cur-dog” last night. So that’s his official nickname from now on

Edit: apparently it’s been his nickname for a while, as per his Instagram comments

That's cringeworthy but I love it lol.

level 3

Isn’t that half the point? His nickname is Gags...

I’ve since learned that it’s been his nickname for a long time, so Gags didn’t make it up

I mean, all nicknames are cringey to a point I guess but imagine "gag-dawg" or "McDawg"

It's the dawg that makes it extra cringey but I see your point.
