My family consists of many diehard Oilers fans. We believe in the Oil!
This year is a rebuilding year. New coaching staff, new players, new energy. Sure, we have lost a few games, but we did BEAT the reigning Stanley Cup Champions, the Chicago Blackhawks, on their home ice, TWICE! We play them again next Wednesday here, at home, at Rexall Stadium. Let's see if the Oil can blow away Chicago again!
Next Game: November 11 on the road against the Detroit Red Wings. If you listen to "Hallsy" on Global, you'll know the Red Wings are flying! Chances of beating them, not so good. The following game, November 12, will play against New Jersey Devils who are not doing so well. This could be a good confidence builder for the Oilers. Perhaps another win on the road. It can be done.
We might even make the playoffs, folks. We have the talent...Eberle, Horcoff, Gagne, Hemsky, Hall, Cogliano, Penner, the "Wall" (Khabibulin)....., to name a few, and we have the ability. Stanley Cup might not be in our grasp this year but dedicated fans don't expect that. This is a rebuilding time. A time to work out the kinks, master skills, build a team. A team that grows stronger in time and yes, we have the potential. Next year, perhaps, the Stanley Cup! What do you say Oil fans? Can we do it? Can our team make the playoffs? Can we go the distance? The Oilers need our support. They need to hear we believe. We need to believe. It can be done. GO TEAM!!!
PS. What do you think of the Oilers Cheer Team? Do we need one? Will it rev up the crowd, build momentum, create the spirit? What's your opinion?
