Top ten signs you're actually an AHL team


10. The St. Louis Blues have more points than you.

9. Toby Pederson is the only player who scores.

8. Laddy Smid leads your team in minutes.

7. Only six of your skaters have a season of NHL play under their belt.

6. You've been outscored 24-5 in the last 6 games and you've lost 10 of your last 12 games.

5. You don't have a farm team, so all your prospects just play on the NHL team.

4. Hot-Oil poster "Loxy" forgets that her hometown has a team.

3. You're checking if it's mathematically possible for Philly to pass you in the standings.

2. You traded away Ryan Smyth.

1. You are the Edmonton Oilers.

Was there a game tonight? Whatever.

Loxy said...

Was there? Is that what I was talking about?

Temujin said...

Couldn't have happened to a nicer team. Muahahaha.

I thought the Toby and Laddy lines were referring to last night's game. No?

it is with a certain amount of bemusement that i chuckle at the pictures you guys manage to rustle up of robbie scremp. i mean, where the hell are these things coming from? do i want to know?

but i digress...c'mon people, is it really just now that we've figured out the oilers won't make the playoffs? or are we doing drinking math? ("it was the last beer that did it, man" as if the first 10 had nothing to do with our current vomiting.) i couldn't even bear to watch the 3rd period last night. ugh.

if there is any justice in the world, calgary and carolina will also fall short. yes. i'm bitter.

meh - support the team when they need you the most.

who has the only goal so far tonight? that's right... Toby Peterson! holler. and, just to brighten your days, i thought i'd look into where our point totals would have us sitting in the AHL, based on points alone, not considering games played or any other such stats, we'd still be tenth in the AHL western conference.

It's PETERSEN.

If you are going to make fun of him (like I like to do) at least spell the man's name correctly. :P

You people should be morally ashamed of your selves. You guys call yourself real fans? You guys are nothing but fairweather fucking shit-hole fans that start bitching when the oilers lose, and i miss ryan smyth too, but get the fuck over it!! like holy shit, he left, hes gone, whining and pissing about it isnt going to make him magically come back. we WILL start winning, if not this season, then next season, if not next season, then the season after that, and so on. A true fan that lives, breathes and bleeds copper and blue would still be supporting their team, not agreeing with other unknowledgeable bastards that say that the oilers suck. so please be a REAL oiler fan that sticks with their team during thick and thin, injuries and losses. be a true oilers fan. Go oilers go!
