Monday Mailbag - Ads on Jerseys?

June 06 2016 07:00AM


We're another week closer to the draft (AND THE DRAFT... UHHH... CONNORVERSARY PARTY!) and that means we're getting closer to, what could be, the implosion of this website. Can you imagine what the comments section will be like once Peter Chiarelli trades someone of actual value to the team? Wild time are coming, my friends. Until then, we do everything we possibly can to kill time and the Mailbag is 3000 words worth of time wasting wisdom for you to soak into your brain bank. I need questions, as always, so please send anything you can think of to me through email or on Twitter. For now, it's time to learn something.

WWYDW: Upgrading the Fan Experience

June 01 2016 04:08PM


With Rogers Place set to open up in the fall it got me to thinking about what I hope is included in terms of amenities and the all around experience of being at the rink. Ticket prices are going up, and, as a result, I think the quality of entertainment at the rink should also go up and that's where I need your help.

Luckily, this week's Mailbag is a hefty read and should kill enough time to get you to your first coffee/smoke break. Hopefully.

My friends and fellow citizens, I am here today to tell you about a fresh new partnership that we just hashed out between OilersNation and the Edmonton Prospects.

Monday Mailbag - Nuge or Draisaitl?

May 23 2016 07:00AM

My friends, it's that time of the week where our panel of geniuses writers answer your questions in an attempt to explain a little bit about hockey and this universe we live in. For most of us, having Monday off means we can sleep in, enjoy a few AM beers, and (maybe) do something productive if the cards fall that way. I dedicate this mailbag to those of you that have to work today, and hope that these 3000 words of questionable knowledge can help you kill off even a little bit of company time. Gord speed, working citizens. We're all pulling for you.
