Journey to the Fin Du Monde

Jason Gregor is going to the 2009 NHL Entry Draft

As loyal Nationeers are aware, something excellent happened last week – something that could only happen when a bunch of ridiculous Oilers fans band together to ensure that they're getting best coverage a young website can provide them with.

Like a pack of maddened, hockey-obsessed jackals, you goons got together and decided to fundraise to send a Nation writer to Montreal so you could get all the Entry Draft coverage you'd ever want. It started with a snide remark Brownlee made about Wanye being a "cheap screw".

And fair enough. Wanye's so cheap he steals empty cans of Lucky Lager and then comes to my place to fill them up with my über-expensive vitamin P. And I have to spend the next week sober. SOBER while trying to maintain order here.

But when long-time OilersNation commenter humantorch (currently livin' large in Holland) suggested he'd pitch in a few bucks to send Brownlee to cover the Draft, well... For those of you just joining us, this should get you up to speed.

Show me the money

I bet a lot of you are wondering how things are going so far. I'm pleased to say that there's no question anymore: we WILL be sending herr Gregor to the 2009 NHL Entry Draft this coming weekend. Will Fraser and Brownlee are even going to cover his show while he's gone!

Here's the breakdown for you:

TEAM 1260 donation: $1,000 Wanye's donation: $500

For a total of $1,500. Not bad, right? What's really astonishing, though, is you guys.

You have raised a whopping $1,815 at last count.

That makes for a grand total of $3,315!

Sweet shit, Nation! You've done it. Gregor, Club Supersex, schooners of Fin Du Monde beer... You'll have your Draft coverage!

Don't stop now

I'm only joking, of course. As stated before, any money raised exceeding what's required for Gregor to cover the Main Event over the weekend will be donated to the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation. So don't stop now! Let's try and get together an obscene amount of money for the kiddies, and I'll make sure Brownlee, Gregor and myself get a photo of us handing over a novelty-sized cheque to the fine men and women at the Stollery.

And who will that cheque be from?

Why, the fine Citizens of the OilersNation.com, of course.

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.

It shoudl get really interestign the next few days. There is a fan question chat on TSN website from McKenzie in which he mentions that the Isles are seriously considering taking Hedman first. If that happens, what does Tampa Bay do? I dont think they want Tavares, but if he is there do you take him anyway. Then do they trade Vinny? Or do they trade away that pick. Or maybe they pick Duschense and the Avs catch a huge break and grab Tavares third. That would be wild.

@ Mowzie: Mowzie did you get it from my name link? There is also the wale tape there, and J.cole. - self promotion. 3 tapes that each could be an album and so far are the three albums of the year. Nice to see some hip hop fans here.

I just grabbed Wale & J. Cole yesterday. Listened to a bit of Wale (not bad), but didn't check out that J. Cole disc yet. Throw ya diamonds up, RocNation in this B!

J.Cole tape is the best of them all (I am D*ckrider.no homo.pause). Listen to "losing My balance" and tell me he isn't gonna be big at least in rap-underground-terms R.O.C '09.

@ Prop Jay. What you think about Slaughterhouse? Been a Crooked I fan for a decade and I'm like Budden, Royce and Joell too.

So who gets the Sedins now? With Gaborik and either Hossa, Havlat or Heatley going there we maybe we are better off with the Sedins as our second line.

What would the Oiler lineup look like with the Sisters? I can't imagine Tambellini committing 10+ million/year on two guys getting second line ice. Ideally the Sisters would roll on line one with a bigger right winger riding shotgun (Maybe Penner could play on the right creating havoc down low). Horcoff would dip to the third line shutdown role with Moreau and Pisani. Gagner would play with Hemsky absolutely feasting on softer competition... Lets see... sign the Sisters, find a goalie, extend Smid and Grebs... That's like 63 million dollars. Oh... Nevermind.

@ Chris unless of course the sisters took a discount to play for Tambo. Man we must have nothing to talk about in Oilers land

@ Prop Jay: 'Move On' is a great track. You hear the new Slaughterhouse track with M.O.P. - 'Woodstock'? That new DJ Quik & Kurupt disc 'BlaQKout' is dope too. Bishop Lamont - 'The Confessional' and Crooked I - 'The Block Obama' are a couple disc to check out too.

On to hockey... My 1st predictions: Jay Bouwmeester to Dallas Dany Heatley to San Jose
