Declaration of War

So although many of us disagree on the problems and solutions, I think we can all say that this season has not been that much fun. Detroit blows and of course they are no longer in our division for us to take advantage of this fact, it seems like everyone else in the Central is doing great, and we are now fielding a D corp with an average age of 23. To make matters even worse, it seems like no one is getting along on here anymore and any time anyone mentions Trotz there are ten responses and internet battle wages out.

I think it's time to remember that at the end of the day, we are all Preds fans, and as a means of helping remember our similarities and to reunify as a fanbase I propose that we declare war on the Edmonton Oilers.

"But Morgaton, the people at The Copper & Blue are so nice and I love going over there!" Well, hear me out.

If you were also watching the game last night with your cat you may have also heard that during the game, while we were down 2-1 in the 2nd, an Oiler's fan threw a Predators jersey on the ice. Yes, not their own jersey - THEY THREW OUR JERSEY ON THE ICE! OURS! THIS IS NOT OKAY! I already have to sit there and watch their annoying little skill players do little skill things that turn into little skilly goals all over our zone without exploding in bitter, jealous draft rage (note: I love Seth Jones, I wanted Barkov, QQ) but seriously? YOU DO NOT DISRESPECT OUR JERSEY! Now, if one of our fans had done that at our game I understand it a bit more just like I understand why an Oiler's fan may want to throw their own jersey on the ice. BUT YOU DO NOT DISRESPECT THE THUNDER CAT!

So, reasons for declaring war against the Edmonton Oilers:


2) They have our number and it makes me hate them

3) They sent us a goalie that appears to have PTSD

4) Their GM appears to keep refusing to trade us Taylor Hall for Victor Bartley. What's up with that?

5) All of the stupid Weber to Edmonton rumors

6)It's easier than just seceding from the Union and declaring war on Canada (because really, we all know if it could be done Texas would have done it already)

7) ?????

8) Imagine the Blingees!

So anyways, in the hopes of giving me something positive for the season that can distract me from all the negative stuff we seem to be dealing with day in and day out with this poor team, I propose we declare war on the Edmonton Oilers and avenge our jersey with a bombardment of offensive gifs and blingees and memes and maybe next time we will win one?
