TSN is reporting that the Oilers are "first out of six teams to land Marian Hossa" and are reportedly offering the Slovakian winger $9 Million per year. Zounds! Wouldn't that be a direct hit to the sternum by a air-to-ground Joy Missile?
Velvet Revolution part 2
In 1989, Czechoslovakia overthrew it's Communist government and became a Sovreign Nation in Europe. In 1993, the Nation peacefully divided into the Czech Republic (home of Super Gangster Ales Hemsky) and Slovakia (Home to Visnovsky and soon to be signed Marian Hossa) in a revolution gangsterly referred to as the Velvet Revolution or the "gentle revolution."
If the Oilers are able to sign Hossa, we here at the OilersNation pledge that we will continue to feature top notch features on both Slovakia and the Czech Republic - both wonderful Nations - in an effort to make all new Oilers as comfortable as possible.
