    Great to see BIG JOHN SCOTT last night– the baddest man in hockey- not a bad player on the fourth line either- would be an awesome Oiler alongside Luke Gazdic!!!!

  • SSB1963

    When you add up drowning my sorrows last night ’cause Bachman was gone, with hoisting a few more in celebration of the emergence of Broissoit- Oilers: Please make the playoffs next year. My liver won’t take much more of this.

    • SSB1963

      Goalie plays well in one game announces emergence. Do you not remember that one crazy game Sievens had against the Sharks last season. It hasn’t really held up this season.

      It is full on bender mode right now. I have equal amounts of money set aside for partying during this playoff run and the ensuing rehab/detox I am going to need.

  • RedMan

    this has been a tough rebuilding process, but there have been some positives this year in cow town… keep it up Calgary.

    Your fans are 100% with you! woooohoooo playoffs!
