Refinery Move?

The Refinery is considering a move to Google’s (or Blogspot) because the Hockey community on WordPress is lacking. As pretty as WordPress’ templates are, nobody seems to visit WordPress Oiler blogs.

What do you guys think? Should I move or stay?

Hopefully, the Oilers make some of their own moves after that disgusting performance against the Wings.

JDD: Big Welcome to the NHL

performance was godly

This is Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers.

He has a name bigger than the jersey so they had to cut out the Drouin part. He has the size of a Burke but the flexibility of a Garon. His performance against the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils over this Remembrance Day weekend was also so big it was worth sending out a big “welcome to the NHL” to our friend Jeff Deslauries.

Good job, JDD: you were godly.

I nearly creamed my pants when he robbed the last guy on the shootout. Read the rest of this entry »

Oilers flirt with disaster; Big hit by Stuart

Peckham da man

Peckham da man

This kid’s a keeper. If you stick to the opposite team’s skill guys on even strength, then you won’t be burned all day as if you were playing on the PK all night. There’s a time to be aggressive – and that means whenever Malkin and Crosby are on the ice. Peckham gets it and he should play more minutes.

The Edmonton Oilers are the titanic and the captain of the ship is Craig MacTavish. And it’s like the Oilers are flirting with the iceberg as it approaches, as if the friggen thing can’t do any harm to them. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. This road trip just passed the halfway point and we’re not doing anything to improve on our 6-6-1 record. Not at this rate. We started this year 4-0 and we’re not even 0.500 anymore. Definitely the wrong direction to be heading in. This is a team that has almost all the right parts but none of the heart that saw them come within a few points of making the post season last year.

Oilers dominate flightless Flyers 5-4

Epic Fail

Philadelphia Flyers - Epic Fail

Love matinées. Love ’em.

The Edmonton Oilers, after achieving the big win in Carolina, walked out of Philly with a big two points. Come on, it deserves some props. The Flyers were on a 4-game winning streak and we had just come off of our 5 game losing one. It was the story of MacIntyre and a bunch of skilled Oilers versus the self-proclaimed “next generation” of the Broad Street Bullies. I think somebody’s been watching too much Degrassi: the Next Generation. Delusions of grandeur, perhaps. Read the rest of this entry »


Dont be upset, man!

If you’re gonna blame anyone, blame Cam Ward. Read the rest of this entry »
