Looking back on my career, I was lucky enough to play with and against great players. As a Canadian, I always seemed to cheer for and follow the Canadians closer than the American or European-born players. That changed for me when I got a chance to play with Phil Housley.

Before the lockout, I made a decision not to share my thoughts on the labour dispute here on Oilers Nation. After a couple of chats with friends at Christmas parties this weekend I can't hold my tongue anymore. I couldn't believe how far off some of my friends were with their information. I need to get my viewpoint out there so I can offer an alternate point of view to the player bashing that is happening right now.

I believe Petry is and will be a big part of this Oiler defense moving forward. With his ability to skate, move the puck and be good defensively he is a minute-eater. Every team needs these types of guys. He is good on both the power play and penalty kill.
He has not reached the ceiling for his development and Oilers fans should be very happy of that.

How has the adjustment been going from the NHL to the AHL? It has been a little different. It took me a few games to get used to the style of play down here. The play is more choppy and more turnovers than I am used to. All in all I think the speed and the strength is the same as it is in the NHL. I don't think the decision making is as quick as I am used to, but I have started to adapt a lot better now.

With this lockout going on, NHL players have lots of time to come on their old team mates radio show. I was pumped to have Ryan Jones on last week! He is a funny guy, solid player and a great addition for the community of Edmonton.
