  1. Cause they can't wait for dessert?
  2. Wow. That's a pretty solid line we're missing. Baertschi - Sutter - Virtanen Edler - Tanev Demko
  3. BS. It sends a great message to possible FAs... don't sign here if you plan on pumpin' the pig! Guys like him should be ashamed. When the average fan works their tail off to make minimum, and these floaters are making millions and pumpin' it... F off!

    Which makes absolute sense... Refs are "slow" to begin with! And as far as more challenges is concerned, they don't need any more... they're challenged enough as it is already!

    [Signing] Oilers re-sign Mikko Koskinen

    I'm beginning to believe it may be Statler and Waldorf from the Muppets, making these types of decisions upstairs from their balcony seats! Who knows, right?

    Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Where do you guys come from? Since the the end of last year, he's only gotten better... and he's only gonna' improve. People jumped on this pick right off the bat. But let's be real here... more than likely... he was never going to out score those "other two" some people wanted so badly. Having said that... I believed in this choice right from the beginning. A lot of people don't have any patience. Give the "kid" a break. Let me ask you this: Would you trade Nylander or Ehlers for Stan Smyl? Not comparing Jake to Smyl, but the point is... you either get points or you get gumption. Which one do you choose? Jake definitely has to take it to the next level, but has the ability to be a "wrecking ball'! Long story short: NO... I would NOT trade Jake!

    That's awesome! Me and my friends would go every Sunday night. The place would be packed and the team was notorious for "bringing it every game". You didn't mess with those boys! Smyl, Beck, Maxwell, and all the other "thugs" they had. Lol... Not to mention, coach Ernie "Punch" McLean. Those were the days! Plus, they had guys like Mark Lofthouse and like you mentioned, John Ogrodnick. Maxwell was actually skilled, but he didn't back down. Don't get me wrong, I love fast, clean, skilled, hard hitting hockey... but this team needs more backbone. Anyway, let's pray to the aliens that Petey's okay and our guys start standing up for each other.

    Smyl is a CHAMP! I use to watch him and Barry Beck down at Queens Park Arena when they played for the New Westminster Bruins!

    Bure was one of the most electrifying players EVER... in the history of the league. But EP40's hockey IQ is out of this world and he's a "alien magician"! Kent Nilsson was called "The Magic Man" and if memory serves me correct, Gretzky said that Nilsson was the most talented hockey player in the league or something to that affect. Petey broke Kent's U20 SHL scoring record. Gretzky said there are similarities between him and Elias. We are in for a treat!
