G34 Wild at Oilers - Lowetide
I don't make predictions because I suck at them. However, tonight has a lot of good arrows for the Oilers. They seemed suitably pissed at their loss against Detroit, the powerplay should be good for a goal and Minnesota looks as good as their uniform.

Game Day "Wild" - Oilers Jambalaya
I'm sorry for those of you who do not agree with me, but our early season success is more then just luck and catching teams off guard early. The defence bought into the coaching early and the coaching has not been able to adjust our defence as other teams have started to capitalize on our weaknesses.

Ryan Smyth - Shawn Horcoff - Ales Hemsky
Taylor Hall - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle
Ryan Jones - Eric Belanger - Sam Gagner
Ben Eager - Anton Lander - Lennart Petrell

Ladislav Smid - Tom Gilbert
Ryan Whitney - Corey Potter
Theo Peckham - Jeff Petry

Nikolai Khabibulin

Magnus Paajarvi, Power Forward - Cult of Hockey
The pucks just haven’t gone in – looking back through game highlights for this year, there were at least five occasions I saw where a Paajarvi shot at point blank range was turned aside from the goaltender.
