Huge announcement at 3pm today

We here at the Nation like to think of ourselves as a six-piece 1980s polka band. At 3pm today, the accordion player finally reports for work.

That's right, the final masterstroke of people that work with the OilersNation will be revealed this afternoon as finalize our roster for the 2008-09 season.

We think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Be sure and tune in.

—DJ Spyn Cycle is the handsome cyborg who keeps the OilersNation from self-destructing. Barely.

Bingofuel is the handsome cyborg who pulls all the levers behind the curtains of the OilersNation. When he isn't running the site, he's plugged into a wall socket, recharging. Or Brownlee and Wanye are playing "keep away" with him. He gets little to no respect.

Oh yes, by all means post your predictions here, Nation. Wild speculation and rumour is what we're all about.

Hmmm . . . looking to add one more writer for the nation . . . needs to know something about hockey . . . needs to be able to present opinions that will generate discussion . . . needs to have something to say constantly . . .

I'm going with Brian Burke. I don't know how you guys did it, but nicely done.

I too am not a covered in oil guy, period. His opposition to the arena is almost dumbfounding. I hope his home in annexed by the city and they drop the arena right on top. He then can be relocated to millwoods - if he isnt already there.

Covered in oil guy lives in Toronto and that basically disqualifies him from talking about the oilers in my opinion

K, given Wanye's hint it's either Rambo? or that mc79hockey guy?

...I hate waiting. If this is some sort of Eklundian ploy to keep getting hits on your site until all is revealed, then I have to tell you I don't appreciate being a pawn in your devious plan. But I will check back anyways JUST to prove that you don't control me! ...now, where do I send you money?

We did the delay quite honestly because the person is currently in the US and promised us his first words in "the early afternoon."

We wanted to get word up early to entertain ourselves with speculative comments.

It's a mainstream media personality. How's that.

Is it Matty? Would a hall of Famer "print" guy stoop so low as to write on the Internet? Or maybe it's Ken Reid? I don't know if I can wait until 3 to find out, as I usually sneak out of here at about 2:30 on Friday. I walk out with a really big frown on my face like I'm pissed off so nobody asks me where I'm going. Doesn't everyone do that?!?

I totally do that Chaz. I also do a fake phone call move on occassion. Perosonally I think it's cruel to do this announcement at 3 on one of the last sunny Fridays of the summer.

Damn you Wayne!

Brian Fellows -

It's Wanye homeslice. Wayne Gretz is a God. I'm not.

You know everyone we can sit here and say "who" posted "what" "when" and "why" all we want. I am just like you. Sitting here at my desk waiting for the weekend to begin......

Of course the difference here is that I know what is about to happen.

BAHAHAHA

I have never known a secret before. Everyone else is gone. Spyn Cycle has something to do so he left me here and said "Post this when his email arrives. Not a moment before three though Wanye."

This is the part that gave it away if you'd like to know. He said he'd be in Vegas on the Bear yesterday I believe.

I was quoting Wayne Gretz from a post up in this thread.

Or if you mean who said he's in Atlantic City, it was Gregor and Fearless Fred on the Bear. He stops in there for a couple mins every afternoon.
