Morning, folks. The Oilers play Calgary tonight. LFG.
But check this, from yesterday:
I spend very little time listening to Oilers Now, but when the tidbits cross my consciousness I can’t help but pay attention, and usually can’t help but have a minor cardiac episode.
Could you imagine?!
Meanwhile, everyone and their stupid mother seems to be convinced by the Tyson Barrie experience. Only in Edmonton would so many people be so fooled by something so obvious.
The problem is, it appears the Oilers are included in that group of people. As it has been now for most of my adult life.
Don't mind me I'll just be pulling these conversations up in the future to dunk on people when the #Oilers commit $12MM+ to Nurse and Barrie for the next three years and don't win shit.— Copper & Blue (@CopperandBlue) March 17, 2021
They’re gonna sign Barrie and let one or both of Ethan Bear or Caleb Jones just leave. Watch.
The narrative that Ethan Bear and Caleb Jones have been bad this year is overblown. Whenever both of them are on-ice, most of their teammates become better and spend more time in the offensive zone.— Sid (@KoskiWin) March 17, 2021
You may ask why I'm not using actual goals. Let me introduce you to PDO! (1/4) pic.twitter.com/1w1hkBy7FB
