Caps vs. Oilers 1-17-2008 Wrap Up

The Local Yokels:

(Com)Post. Times.

The Neutral Observers: AP Wire.

The Other Side:

Edmonton Journal: outdueled, downward path, making room for the youth, Oilspills, game recap. Edmonton Sun: stormy seas, Tarnstrom out, 3 stars, soldiers honored.

Final Thoughts:

Note to Jim Matheson, last year Vancouver earned the third seed in the playoffs with a Northwest Division leading 49-33 for 105 points. They faced the sixth seeded Dallas Stars in the first round who posted a 50-32 record and earned 107 points. Also, Nashville had more wins (51) than Anahiem (48) yet had fewer points, however Nashville got the fourth seed over San Jose inspite of having the exact same record, 51-31, because Nashville had more OT losses than San Jose. Anahiem was in the exact same boat with their first round opponent, they had more OT losses than Minnesota but the Thug Ducks were a Division Champion. Though I think you would be smarter to wait until your team's five game road trip through the "Southleast" is over before you start bashing the division. Your team is already 0 for 1.

46 down, 36 to go.
