That is very true. I bow to your logic. Another edge for the oilers.

Hey Bessie

How about a bet that if the oilers win I’ll write in orange capitals largest font on both threads that the Oilers are the best team in Alberta and the Flames suck.

If the Flames win you need to post on both threads in red capitals largest font that the Flames are the best team in Alberta and that the Oilers suck.


What’s says you?

That’s no bet, since you are equally happy rooting for whichever team happens to be winning at the time

It's called being fan-fluid, only a small percentage of fans identify that way.

Calgary‘s third line scores on Edmonton‘s first line. Nurse back checking but couldn’t catch up. Classic.
The Oilers should dedicate someone to play defense.

Lol. What comes out.

Boy simple Oilers fans forget so quick.

Anytime the flames play the oilers I want the flames to win.

Any other team playing the oilers I want the oilers to win.

As an aside my next favourite team is Pittsburgh

Probably Kipper or Roberts all time.

Favourite Oiler would be either Anderson or Coffey.

Current, that's a tough one. Not as clear cut as the Oilers. Seeing as this is the 2nd game I've watched this season, and I'm probably not making it to the end, I'm going entirely off stats/last year/one game/headlines/historical...probably Weegar with Zary and Markstrom close behind.

For me this year… would have to be Coleman. He’s working his butt off.

Sharangovich has sure been excellent for Flames, too bad his stick exploded on that one timer on PP.

That was a goal if the puck hit the net. 3/4 of the net was wide open.

Dam. If edmontons second goal is the gMw winner that would be said for such a great hard fought game.

Sure, jinx it with 8 minutes left on the clock. May as well turn it off now...

If both teams played this well out of the chute we would be tops in the league.

Tough loss but solid performance. Good for the oilers. 13 straight wins.

Would you want Toffoli back or keep Sharangovich? So far I’m leaning to youth in the long run.

I don't miss Toffoli. The new kid has star potential. No contest.
