Tonight marks the Oilers' last chance at beating a Western team before we get into the month of December. Seriously... You can't make this stuff up.

I want to take just a little bit of time out of our daily routine here to talk to the huddled masses of Edmonton Oilers fans, if that's okay with you, Citizens. We're slowly descending into the Christmas season, and that's always an opportune time to help out the less fortunate, and reflect upon how good we have it sometimes. And the fanbase for that sinking ship up north, they are certainly struggling.
The team has lost 8 games in a row in their 8th season of what is probably a decade long rebuild, if not more. The team is misguided by a rag tag group of doddering lunkheads that have no vision, no appetite for success, and continue to steer the ship off course completely unabated by the ones who sign the checks. It's grim, and it shows no signs of improving at all.
So, as Flames fans, maybe it's time we put aside our petty differences once and for all, and extend an olive branch to the disenfranchised. After all, your Calgary Flames are a have team right now (as in, they HAVE been winning), and all signs point to this being a franchise that is doing their rebuild the right way, so maybe it's selfish to keep that to ourselves.
Therefore, I'm sending out a call to you, Edmonton, and make no mistake, this is a limited time offer: I'm granting you, the fan, the opportunity to join our ranks. Become a Flames fan. It's the lifestyle change you need, not the one you deserve.

Matt Hendricks was hurt last night, blocking a Shea Weber shot. We don't know the extent of the injury at this time, but a Shea Weber shot can break steel so it's probably not going to be 'take two aspirins and call me in the morning' for Hendricks. With Benoit Pouliot already hurt, and David Perron on the trade block, what on earth does the Oilers depth chart at wing look like?

Well, it was a long and arduous journey. And it's only gotten longer and arduouser as the season has rolled along...
