What would be my perfect injury report? Well besides reporting on NO INJURIES, my perfect injury report would be making injury updates as informative as they can get. For example, Kris Russell's lower body injury is a strain in the hamstring area. Though pretty painful at first, Russell has come a long way. Today, however, his hamstring was a little more sore than usual, forcing him to only three hours of rehab instead of the usual five. The majority of this time was spent using relaxation techniques on the muscles, including massage and heat therapy.

Wouldn't this be neat? The world would be an amazing place if we got such detailed injury updates from the teams. It wouldn't leave us guessing and assuming. "He wasn't able to do resistant band knee crossovers comfortably? MUST BE ANOTHER SETBACK!" Compared to now, I think it could definitely give fans a better peace of mind. "Lower body injury? OH NO ANOTHER STAPH INFECTION OH MY GOD!"

I would like to officially welcome two new Oilers to the injury report! Things in the injury-report-life over here started out a little slow surprisingly (in a good way) at the beginning of the season. We have now played 14 games and have picked up right where we left off at the end of last season. I am convinced that the Edmonton Oilers are dedicated at being the best at the competition within the competition, which is the total amount of injuries league-wide. Our two new injury report guests will not be staying for long (unlike the extremely greedy, previous six players who are very RUDELY overstaying their welcome here.

Craig Anderson left the Ottawa Senators last week after hearing the news that his wife, Nicolle, had been diagnosed with cancer. It wasn't an easy decision, but after back-up goalie, Andrew Hammond, went down with an injury, Nicolle Anderson pushed her husband to rejoin his second family, as they needed his help.

The Oilers have been winning, and Oilersnation has been happy a happy place. This means that the angry, bitter, commenters who trash everything in their sights have disappeared, and happy, cheerful, positive commenters have returned to the Nation!

One thing that has stood out to me lately is how positive the comment section in Baggedmilk's game wrap-ups have been. I remember reading through the comments in last year's wrap-up and everybody was in a terrible mood. They spent most of their time complaining and trashing every comment possible - it was tough to get through. Now that the Oilers are winning this year, I began tracking the total amount of cheers and trashes in the wrap-ups. The data has been put together, and I give you, the Nation Morale Index®!
