By the time you read this it may have been confirmed that Ales Hemsky is done for the season.
And so the depth on RW - O'Sullivan, Stortini, Nilsson um ... - is now about the same as LW - Penner, Moreau, Jacques, um ...
Of course considering the majority of comments at the Journal that I read this morning this is probably the best thing that could have happened to this club.
Which tells you all you need to know about a good number of fans of the Edmonton Oilers. A guy averaging a point per game, who can play against the other team's better players and is a plus seven on this shitshow goes down and they cheer.
Well they're going to get the team that they deserve. Really they already are.
We're looking at four straight years out of the playoffs if its true. Even with Hemsky it was likely they were going to miss out again.
And that is fully on management's shoulders. Of course they already have their excuses.
You want to know the problem with this club? Its the same as its been for years. Not enough quality NHL players. Watch the game tonight and check out the boys playing the men from the San Jose Sharks. Gagner. O'Sullivan. Brule. Jacques. Potulny. The departed Liam Reddox.
Check out the tiny little hairs sprouting from their upper lips.
There's no shame in it. Its just when you spend a month not shaving if that's the best that you can come up with its probably not the best thing that the hopes of an NHL team ride upon your shoulders.
You need a few men at least.
As you can see the stash is magni-fu-cent. Its cost me what remained of my dignity and my sex life but its been worth it. So far over 600.00 has been donated to this stash to fight prostate cancer. One in six men in Canada will get prostate cancer, so if you want to give a little or a lot to a good cause then please check out http://ca.movember.com/mospace/180793 and chip in please. I'd appreciate it. Its probably too late for me but maybe the next generation won't have to deal with getting an annual finger up the ass.
Unless you dig that sort of thing. Then, well, now this is an awkward moment now, isn't it.
Ah what the hell, whatever turns you on. Hell being an Oilers fan is like getting it up the ass from a bull elephant so what's a little digit here and there. Really.
So only three more days for this baby. Don't be late. Donate!
