On February 28, 2009 Oilers Defenseman Dennis Grebeshkov was interviewed by a local radio personality about life, love and the pursuit of happiness prior to puck drop against the Minnesota Wild.

This is their story.

Grebeshkov: Well hello! Aren’t you cute. Where did they find you?

Tencer: Hey! I’ll have you know that my Mom dropped me off here at the rink hours ago thank you very much. And besi-

Grebeshkov: And look someone tied tie for you!

Tencer: Um, yeah. That was me Dennis. I can tie my own tie and if I'm not in a big hurry in the morning I even tie my own shoes.

Grebeshkov: So you are kid that is going to sing anthem?

Tencer: No Dennis. I am here on behalf of CHED.

Grebeshkov: You are here for Make-a-Wish?

Tencer: No Dennis. I am here to interview you.

Grebeshkov: You are lost child?

Tencer: I am here to interview you for the local radio station.

Grebeshkov: Why did they hire child to be radio man?

Tencer: I was hired to be on the Oilers radio network because an adult would have asked you guys too many hard questions. I interview the players about being Oilers and stuff.

Grebeshkov: Want to interview me?

Tencer: You mean it?? Honest injun??

Camera guy taking picture: [Thinking] I haven’t seen Tencer this excited since he found that program on the ground after a game. He’s gonna sleep tonight….

Grebeshkov: For sure. [removes bell from neck and leans into mic]

Tencer: Gee whiz mister! Can I ask you anything I want?

Grebeshkov: Anything. Is your wish kid.

Oilers PR staffer: [off camera] Ok. That’s all the time we have. Thanks Dennis you can go back to warm up now.

[Grebeshkov leaves bench and returns to warmup]

Tencer: [holding mic out to no one, bottom lip starts trembling as Grebeshkov skates away] But… but….

Grebeshkov: [back in warmup thinks to self] What a nice kid.

I think with some better editing this post would have looked like this:

WAYNE:

I think Dan Tencer looks like a young dweeb. I'm jealous he gets to talk to hockey players even though he looks like a kid. Why are more media members not immature and confrontational?

Tha end.

I really don't get this - what is the point of profiling Dan T in a negative manner. This seems hurtful and a waste of time - if you have a problem with Ched - take them on in terms of their corporate informercials and head in the sand - but everyone has to start somewhere - sometime..... without Dan T - life could be a hell of lot worse - with some over the hill broadcaster that misses press conferences to go to bathroom and change their depends - having a radio personality is different than being a writer - this is a small town - get over it - move on - shame on NATION, I would expect this from some blogger but not from the site itself - how can you be respected within your in industry if you berate people earning a living - and your pot shots are more Oiler and Ched mind control than the person your hurting.

Note to Nation - do you have permission to use this photo - this may be both photographer and corporate ched infringement - re: image. Lawyers will be calling soon.

Dan T was a call screener - step one. Baptism by fire - fill your boots.

Ched fired Stafford and like most media looked around saved costs with cheap, young labor - very young.

Dan T has to play the corus rightsholder game - if he was on the Team - he would be equal or better to Corey Graham and speak his mind with reprecusions from PD Syd Smith and overseer Allan Watt. Without Corey, you would have NO post game show as the PD (Bryn) has not taken the time / effort to provide local programming via hiring staff or contracting out.

Team 1260 Moving to fox sports as mentioned is a start -but throwing evening programming out to a syndicate is similar to turning off the lights - but even if OilersNation wanted to host a radio show - it has now proven that it is too immature and a legal liability to go near a microphone.

Gregor and Brownlee might jump ship as this is hurting THEIR creditibility amongst their peers - idiots and then your site has no content and just basement dwellers with wireless routers with free porn - shape up.

YES - when your 5 sponsors start leaving then who is going to fund the bandwidth and graphics - ignition media is not going to float your boat.

Done.

OK, the gig is up Deep Oil. Now we all know that you are actually Tencer, trying to step out from under the thumb of CHED.

@ deep oil

Good God Deep Oil. Are you serious right now? As a guy who has come on here and called everyone under the sun every name under the sun perhaps you should get a bit of perspective on this one.

Here. I'll help:

1. This picture is funny. Take a good look. See how they are both smiling and Tencer looks like he is in love? That's funny.

2. The commentary above is also intended to be funny. What hurtful things does it say exactly?

a) Dan Tencer is young - nothing mean there b) Dan Tencer is caricaturized as being innocent - nothing mean there

You know what? I could go on but screw it. I don't know if you need to up your meds today or decrease the dosage but kindly consult a Rexall Dispensary at your earliest convenience.

"Hurtful" - do you remember the stuff you have written on here that we have had to delete?

Now that I have had a chance to read the rest of this comment it is so high-lariously off the mark I will simply leave it as is. "Shape up?" That just made my day.

Guilty by association - everything that oilernation does affects those on the payroll - professional credibility. I don't think this helps you long term - associating with this poke in the eye drive by blogging. Sorry for watching your back and assuming that this was below the belt - as we all know, you can stand on your own.

While I appreciate people on here thinking they know what I will do, let me state that I am happy with the Nation. Sure I would like to have more beer and girls at the meeetings, but overall it is all good.

As for my credibility amongst peers. I have ruined that myself, so don't blame anyone else, nor do I really worry about it. The only opinions that truly matter to mne are the boys that make the decisions at the TEAM, HDNET, and the NATION.

1) Picture is not yours - copyright infringement.

2) Is Tencer up for public humiliation at your corporate expense - do you really need this for the 3500 people a day that come here.....

Oiler Nation should take the high road and address journalism rather than age, looks, clothes, that is fair game to oiler players, management, coaching - but to slag a young kid who is just doing his job - must of been a real slow day in the blogosphere. And I am standing up for Dan T even though I don't care for the Ched propaganda.

This is why I'm not smart enough to run a web site.

See, if I was running a site with talent from a particular radio station as the only trained, connected and accredited contributors the last thing that I would do is splash a logo of the competing radio station on the front page of my site.

Nevertheless, the mockery is amusing...and at this point in my career I subscribe to the "any publicity is good publicity" theory.

I am not "talent." I don't carry a make-up pad like Gene Principe. I don't change my voice when I work, like, well, every radio guy does. I'm not young enough or good looking enough to be "talent." I'm a writer. And my most notable body of work is that I am Sam's dad.
