Can the Oilers make the post-season?
Mon, March 31, 2008

Can exuberance make up for inexperience? Can momentum make it possible to scoff at long odds?

The Edmonton Oilers insist the answer is yes. And now that they've climbed to within three points of a Western Conference playoff berth with 12 wins in their last 15 games, who's to say they're wrong?

Can the Oilers make the post-season? Have your say in our forum.

nighttrain, glad the bandwagon you jumped on continues to do well. Your 'color changer' joke is ridiculous at best, but it seems to be the best you've got so I'll let you enjoy it because I feel kind of sorry for you. Talk to you next round after Detroit loses to a real team.

Heres hoping your team has a good season next year. Then hopefully we can stop hearing about the eighties & 2005/06. ps. Still having a blast in the post season. How are your flames doing "color changer"?

Actually nighttrain, I only made a very brief reference to the past in my post, the rest was all about things pertaining to this past season..or a season or three previous in reference to the Wings being playoff choke artists. I notice you don't refute a thing I said. Why? because you can't. Every point I made was a valid one, and all you've got is a lot of hot air backed up by pointless rambling and juvenile insults. At least Pete knows something about hockey. Look at his post nighty, everything in it is true. It's all good though because once Detroit chokes against Nashville you will mercifully shut up.

Nighttrain, got any tickets available on your boxcar for the Wings. They will be riding the rails much sooner than you think. You of all people shouldn't be talking about rebuilding and tearing down etc. What are the wings going to do for talent? They have been finishing high in the standings for the last ten years or so and have what to show for it. In the last fifty years Edmonton has five cups and Detroit 3, even though the Oilers have only been in the league for 18 of those fifty. Edmonton has the youngest average age in the league, Detroit the oldest. We won't have to wait till next year, Oiler fans will be laughing at you in about two games. Come to think of it, Detroit has a habit of finishing first in the regular season and exiting the playoffs in the first or second round if their age didn't show up. We won't even get into the favourable officiating.

oh Norbit, a -g- a- i- n with the past.
nighttrain, 2008-04-16 21:39:25

nighty, Im guessing you are one of the many, many bitter little folk out there who's team got owned by the Oilers back in the day and still all you can do is be an angry little troll hoping he jumped on the right bandwoagon.lol. you just cling to your pathetic little hope of Oilers failure, and next year at this time I will laugh at you. By the way, how did the Wings do without Lidstrom in the lineup this year? LOL. His injury exposed their complete lack of depth.Once he is done, so are the Wings because Datsyuk and Zetterberg may be great players but neither is a leader. Enjoy your little moment little fella, because Oil Country knows better. Heck, even Flames fans agree that the Oilers have the best pool of young talent in the league. You're just angry that your precious Red Wings have no big prospects on their team or in their system. I will enjoy watching them choke in the playoffs...AGAIN lol. Now stop your prattling, the people who actually know about hockey are trying to talk.
Norbit, 2008-04-16 18:22:49

Did I hurt your ity bity little Oil country feelings? I dont care! We will wait till next year when you oil fans are making excuses "AGAIN" for your sad, sad team. Best record for the last quarter of the season-LOL. Now they just have to work on quarters 1-3 and they might have a chance.........Fools.
nighttrain, 2008-04-16 15:35:01

Well said Pete, and nighttrain, if the Red Wings didnt have the officiating going their way, the Preds would be leading that series and look as though they could still do it.

Your suggestion of tearing the Oilers down is laughable and only demonstrates your complete lack of hockey knowledge, as the Oilers and Leafs are 2 teams heading in complete opposite directions. You really are an idiot and should just stop posting as you're only succeeding in making yourself look stupid.
Norbit, 2008-04-16 13:24:35

nighttrain, perhaps you should change your callsign to freight train as you are out of control. To compare the Oilers to the leafs is comical. More over to suggest that the Oilers need to be torn down and rebuilt is assinine. They had the best record in the NHL for the last quarter of the season and have the youngest team in the NHL. Given the veterans that where out of the line up due to injury for much of that period and the average age is even lower and more astonishing. You're an idiot buddy and perhaps should go back to playing with trains instead of attempting to pretend you know anything about hockey.
Pete, 2008-04-16 08:52:25

Maybe your pathetic oiler team should merge with gordholio's pathetic maple laughs and maybe you guys might make it to the playoffs. And yes they signed most of their rfa's and they will all perform like the mighty torres did this year. Both of these teams need to tear down everything from management to their stick boys. By the way, we are having a blast in the playoffs. Oilers/Leafs-LOL, LOL, LOL
