REMEMBER TO VOTE IN THE SIDEBAR.

22 December 2008

You have until Christmas to vote ->

Some reasons to vo-et!
For Lubo:

Oh Lu Visnovsky, you are the love of my life!
Oh Lu Visnovsky, I'd let you shag my wife!
Oh Lu Visnovsky, I wish I were as hairy as yooooou!

He plays hockey the way 7 year olds play, puck pursuit all the way. It's fun.
...bringing care packages to his old teammates is just an ever so thoughtful thing to do. He'd definitely call you after, anyway.. :)
For Shelly:

....because I know that's who my mom would vote for.

Sheldon Souray is mantastic. I want to vote for him. There is not competition as far as I'm concerned.

The Edmonton Oilers are kicking Loxy out of the press box for exceeding the shirtless-Souray quotient.

It's a Christmas Miracle!

There will be a new winner of the hot-off this year. He's got a big contract, he's not a longterm Oiler, he plays defence and produces more points than most of our players.

But is it Sheldon Souray or Lubomir Visnovsky ?

I'll be posting pictures until Christmas day when the winner is announced. I want official votes, so we'll be going with the poll on the right side bar.

This one is for all the marbles.

Parting thoughts for Scarneck can be left below.

Someone needs to go.



In order to determine the final two I will get you to rank the three men and the guy with the lowest total gets cut. (First gets 2 pts, Second gets 1 points, Third gets no points)

Last time I got all creative on your asses, but I'm sick as a dog, so I'm just going to ask you to please vote in the comments.

Thank you.

The tribe has spoken.



Hemsky, Souray and Lubo.

There's your top three.

Now if I can get a bit editorial on your asses, I think the lack of eliminating Hemsky when y'all had the chance means he'll take this thing. Yes, this past round was a cleverly created rouse to get rid of the kid. But you didn't take it and as with the number of men that visit this site.. Hemsky wins again.

Yes, I think Hemsky is a terrific talent. He's even kind of cute. But really. He's better looking than Brodziak? Who is better looking than Moreau? I constantly date younger men, but pre-pubescent?

Needless to say, I didn't need the Hot Rod to win this thing. But if Hemsky is truly the hottest person on the Oilers, we have an UGLY UGLY team. Frankly, Hot Oil is supposed to celebrate the "hot" and this thing is proving once again, that we are NOT.

Anyways, the next round will take another form. TBA tomorrow.

An Oilfan in Vancouver

Dear friends,

Last night's win made me SO incredibly happy. I can't even explain it in words.

So instead, I'll leave you with the video I made earlier in the day where at one point I'm wearing three pieces of Oilers gear. People who visit my personal site and facebook have already been inundated with it, but why not show the rest of the world what a dork I am. (It's a lipsync of a Flight of the Conchords song for a contesty thing.)

And remember, if you haven't voted an Oiler off the island. Do so below!

Loxy!!

Oiler Survivor

To go from four to three, I'm asking you to vote someone off Oiler Island. So, unlike every round in every hot off thus far, you vote for the person you LEAST want to go forward.

I've compiled some stats to help you compare options:


Name: Kyle "Hot Rod" Brodziak
Alternate nicknames: Dick as a Watch
Age: 24
Hometown: St. Paul, Alberta (LOCAL BOY!)
Random Facts: Favourite subject in school is Math. Math is hot right? And his favourite video game? Microsoft golf '98.
Mad skillz: Scoring overtime fluke goal against league's best team
Unbearably Cute Picture: Working at Tim Hortons
Picture with: Greatness
Unfortunate decision: Hair choice



Name: Ales "Scarneck" Hemsky
Alternate Nickname: Hemmer
Age: 25 (yeah, right)
Hometown: Pardubice, Czech Republic
Random Facts: My car is named Ales.
Mad Skillz: All
Unbearably cute picture: Baby Ales
Picture with: Greatness
Unfortunate decision: Media Guide Picture


Name: Sheldon "Baywatch" Souray
Alternate Nickname: Shelly
Age: 32

Name: Lubomir "Vo-et for me" Visnovsky
Alternate Nickname: Lubo
Age: 32
Hometown: Topoľčany, Czechoslovakia (Slovakia)
Random Facts: Likes the snow
Mad Skillz: Smiling
Unbearably cute picture: Anytime he smiles
Picture with: Matching Ladyfriend
Unfortunate decision: That outfit







Voting over.

09 December 2008

And then there were FOUR.




Voting will start TOMORROW with a more comprehensive post.

Some comments on the players that didn't make it on... The battle between Hot-Rodziak and Moreau was right to the wire, but my timely posting the night of the San Jose win may have had something to do with it. New blood in the final four right?
Speaking of which, props to Slava Trukhno (I can never figure out where the "h" goes in that name) as being the only non-roster player to squeeze into the elusive eight.
At one point, I thought Dustin Penner was going to give Ales Hemsky a run for his money. That would've been amazing. I don't like the same guy winning this thing over and over.. and frankly the only way to stop it is to get more ladies to vote. How can you resist the smile of Brodziak or Lubo?
Nilsson got a few votes. He may have been hampered by his Oilers picture but I think it was more a matter of how great Lubo's is. You feel his smile coming through.

07 December 2008

Lets do this. The road to the final four.



You will need to vote for FOUR people.

1. Ales "Scarneck" Hemsky vs. Dustin "The Juggla" Penner

2. Ethan "Man of the year 2006" Moreau vs. Kyle "The Hot Rod" Brodziak

3. Lubomir "Vo-et for me" Visnovsky vs. Robert "Arm Candy" Nilsson

4. Sheldon "Baywatch" Souray vs. Slava "Slava" Trukhno




An even 50 comments seems like a good time to stop...

The last matchup of the second round

So, we're finally going to find out the top 8. I'm a little preoccupied with the return and possible stay of Hockey Jesus/Captain America. This battle is more about pride than anything else as two guys fight to go down to Sheldon Souray in the next round. And while I'm not always happy with your guys' choices, I think we've got a pretty decent group left (as shown in the side bar on the right).

I'm also eager to finish this whole deal before Christmas and while I'm super busy, I'll try to take one for the team. I'll also try to watch more games, having seen the game last night, the Oil is 7-3 when I watch. Conversely, the Canucks are 3-5 when I tune in. (I need to watch more hockey... especially with those two teams facing off three times in the next month!)

Anyways, here are your final two. Slava Trukhno and Steve MacIntyre.
(Reminder it's a hot off. If you have to put a paper bag over his whole body when you are making sweet love to him, it doesn't count.)

It goes to Slava.

Hockeys Future describes the next two competitors

Most experts agree that Nilsson is one of the most talented Swedish players since the Sedins and at draft time was on par with Peter Forsberg and Markus Naslund when they were Nilsson's age. It should be noted however that Naslund and especially Forsberg developed their games dramatically the year after they were drafted and Nilsson's development has come along slower.

Nilsson is extremely gifted offensively. He can do pretty much anything with the puck and combines a great skating technique with fine technical skills, excellent passes and tremendous hockey sense. He is more of a play-maker than a sniper but is still capable of putting the puck in the net.


A bit of a sucker for punishment, Cornet often finds himself digging for the puck in the corners and along the boards and battling against players much larger and stronger then he is. To his credit, he takes his knocks and always gets up and tries again when he gets outmuscled and knocked down. When he does get the puck, he has the ability to thread a pass that has no business getting through, thanks to his on-ice awareness and soft hands, but his lack of strength reduces his effectiveness.
The Nils takes it!

Lubo vs. Poulo

Loxy commentary:

These are two guys I've considered for my new favourite Oiler. While it's been nearly six months since Marty left, I still haven't been able to attach myself to a new guy. Pouliot has the underdoggedness (combined with very untimely illness before the cup run) and Visnovsky has the slight comic timing of a charming soul. Maybe combined they could be my man, but separate, I'm not yet convinced. When you are judging this and any other competition, I remind you to look past the pictures I post. I'm lazy and often don't find the best of both worlds.

Lubo has the cuter smile, but I'm a big fan of Poo's sweater.

YOU vo-eted for LUBO!

The round that Penner wins

Chris Vande Velde is good at spouting off hockey cliches.


Dustin Penner is funny, but I couldn't find a good clip to show it.


Vote in the comments.

What did I tell you Lord Bob? Penner wins. Easy peasy japanesey.

10 November 2008

What Monday? Right?

Ales Hemsky random fact, brought to you from wikipedia:

Hemský returned to the Czech Republic to play 47 games for HC Moeller Pardubice during the 2004 NHL Lockout. During that time, he scored 13 goals and 31 points, fifth on the club. Pardubice won the Extraleague championship for the first time in 16 years, and Hemský was named playoff MVP for his efforts.

While in the Czech Republic, Hemský was slashed on the left side of his neck with a broken beer bottle by an unidentified assailant in a Czech bar. He still has the scar.


Andrew Cogliano random fact, brought to you from wikipedia:

On March 7, March 9, and March 11 of 2008, Cogliano set an NHL record by scoring overtime goals in three consecutive games against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues. His stick and gloves were subsequently sent to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Cogliano grew up in Woodbridge, Ontario. During the winter, he and his older brother played hockey and during the summer they played soccer.



In round two, you vote in the comments. Anonymous does not count.


HEMSKY TAKES IT. BLURG.
