GAMEDAY 57: This is a Pun-free Zone

Got Goc?

It’s a gameday in Pitt as the Edmonton Oliers come to town with Mc-somebody.

Tonight is another hockey night in Pitt, as the Edmonton Oilers come to town with Mc-Somebody.  Before we talk about the rotting possum corpse that is the Oilers, we have some housekeeping matters to discuss:

  • Butters has melted 
  • Malkin got Le-banned
  • Cue the Malkin trade talk Athletic article by Rossi, in case you need new kitty litter.

My assumed guess on our line up, minus the Malkin part. I guess Cullen will probably move up.

(Psssst, Jovi…Maatta is on IR)

Ok, pinkies up, it’s Tea Time:

Hitchcock went all “Their Soff” on his team recently, telling the media that “…the coaching staff wants to win more than the players do.”

Talk, draw, draw, point, talk, draw…

Currently they are looking for a new GM after firing Peter Chiarelli (of the framed Kessel trade); The front runner is Keith Gretzky.  

They are having the same problem we had of ‘wasting their star’s prime years’.  It is the Bylsma years,  just at an accelerated rate.   Plus, they have the additional problem of squandering all their number one picks.  Remember Taylor Hall. 

“The Oilers are 13 points out of the third spot in the Pacific Division and four points back of the final wild-card spot, but getting there would require leapfrogging five different teams.”

This is their possible starting line up:


Leon Draisaitl

Connor McDavid

Ty Rattie

Milan Lucic

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

Alex Chiasson

Jujhar Khaira

Brad Malone

Zack Kassian

Tobias Rieder

Colby Cave

Jesse Puljujarvi
Defensive Pairings

Oscar Klefbom

Adam Larsson

Darnell Nurse

Kris Russell

Brandon Manning

Matt Benning

Cam Talbot

Mikko Koskinen

Andrej Sekera

Today is Finn’s 19th birthday, so I think we should celebrate in proper P.H. fashion: Photoshop/Rave party! Here’s a little something to get you started.
