There is no question that things are horribly bad right now for the OilersNation.  Some folks are even calling it the worst time in franchise history – which seems insane given that 1) The Gretzky Trade 2) SCF 2006 G7 but when you are going through a thing having other people tell you that thing isn’t so bad doesn’t help. It makes things worse. We are the joke of the league and that makes every self respecting Oilers fan irate.

Before we delve into my little analysis of Oilers ownership and is Daryl Katz “Count Chocula evil” give that video I posted at the top a quick gander if you need a little morale boost. It’s by this Icelandic band I got to watch a few weeks back called FM Belfast.

I've never liked stuffing. I didn't eat it as a child, and as a grown up I always politely, and quickly, pass the bowl of stuffing to the person beside me at the table. It is easy to bypass stuffing at the dinner table, but tonight it will be difficult for the Oilers to avoid another thrashing stuffing at the hands of the Nashville Predators.

The Oilers have lost seven straight games, and they must be ready from the opening puck drop or the game will be over after 20 minutes.

Being selected 1st Overall in the NHL Entry Draft is a major accomplishment and an acknowledgement of the potential that those few who have been taken 1st have within them. It’s actually pretty rare that there isn’t consensus on who the 1st pick should be. These players dominated in their eligible years and have a combination of size, skill, and determination to become the best in their peer groups. This year there’s Connor McDavid. Before that it was Nate MacKinnon. The Oilers took 3 players 1st Overall in subsequent years and selected the favourite every single year.

The Edmonton Oilers recalled Oscar Klefbom this afternoon, which could mean the ball is rolling. Or it could mean diddly. Such is the life of an Edmonton Oilers fan. Most NHL fans are anticipating their team's next game, hoping for a win and a pile of goals. In our town? F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 F5.

So I am currently wrist deep in a new startup company and it is going to be offered in many languages and this requires me to be on the road all the time. It's like the least difficult job I have ever had. But though I'm gone, my heart is buried 12 feet under Jasper Ave and 109 street and I read all the articles, watch all the highlights and swear at my Oilers App on the regular. The Copper and Blue are and will be out of sight for the foreseeable future but they are not even close to be out of mind.
