We're getting close to that magical time of the year when the Oilers are actually relevant! Of course, I'm talking about the NHL entry draft and as usual the Oilers are picking in a lottery spot.  Since yearly failure is as predictable as the the rising sun, we've once again organized a Draft Party for Oiler fans to come and celebrate the garbage fire that is our favourite hockey team. It's that time again, Nation. It's time for us to reap the rewards of another year's embarrassment. As we do every June, we're celebrating at the Pint Downtown and we're raising money for charity.

WindingDown

We are, at most, 6 games away from the end of the season and that means the playoff pool is winding down to what looks to be an exciting finish.  Even though I know how much you guys look forward to the weekly updates, the good times can't go on forever. The Stanley Cup Finals are underway and holy hell was Game 1 ever a beauty. The Rangers came out like a house on fire, and as the game went on LA forced their will upon the Rangers. It was a great start to what I hope is a long series. My sole pool survivor, Drew Doughty, scored me a couple points but my terrible draft performance continues.

DontLookAtMe

It's Friday and don't, for one second, pretend you're working on anything. You may as well read this Playoff Pool update to see how badly I suck and how my dreams of Internet prizery are being replaced by the stench of failure and loneliness. Somewhere out there, Chris Kelly is laughing at me. He's pointing at his screen and mocking my stupidity. Not only did I choose an injured player for my roster, I didn't take a single Canadien,NY Ranger or Chicago Blackhawk. Now, the only thing left for me to stare at the concrete as I plummet to earth and wait for impact. This is my life at the bottom, laugh if you must.
