With all the hoopla surrounding the lockout on the horizon and the Economics of the arena dominating the news, the Sports Section looks more like the Business Section these days. Who doesn't love a riveting cost analysis diagram where there should be a breakdown of the Oilers training camp line up? And we would rather see an interview with Fehr and Bettman wearing rumpled suits and rumplier faces than the Nuge all sweaty and talking about skating any day.
Anywhoo, we thought we would pose a question as it relates to a conundrum for the Nation if this is how things are going to be. An entire article surrounding the economics of the Nation Network. On a Friday night with no hockey in sight. Bleak huh?

Big ups to our main man @21bam21 for sending us the classic video above.
Bad news just seems to be raining down on the OilersNation doesn't it? First the lockout dominates our every waking thought as our beloved sport is put in jeopardy by the very same rich people who make their living from us enjoying our beloved sport. Then news that Randy Jackson isn't leaving American Idol after all. Then news yesterday of an alarming exchange between Daryl Katz and City Council.

Some decisions in life are funny and some are not. This dude reacting to the news he is not the father in a Maury paternity test is funny. Jordan Eberle being the next Captain is no laughing matter. So you can watch the video above and have a good laugh or make the jump and have a good think. We are on the verge of a 10 year NHL strike - its every man for himself at this point.

An epic battle rages here at the OilersNation. A battle between good and evil, brains and brawn, thinking up here (points to brain) versus thinking down here (points to groin region.) And don't kid yourself, the smart kids are winning.

Disappointing news out of Edmonton Oilers HQ broke this afternoon with the announcement that the Oilers extended the contract of Jordan Eberle by a mere six years for a piddling 36 million dollars. This is not only a terrible sum and an awful term, but it also provides a chilling insight into what the future holds for us all.
