It's a weird day, nationeers, for a lot of reasons. On the one hand, it's a solemn day on this the anniversary of September 11, 2001. On the other hand, it's the first day of the rest of our lives.

I have some news that -- blessedly -- has nothing to do with Dany "WaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAH" Heatley. One of the members of my crack team of visual designers at the day-job was just sent this fabulous little gem about the Oil probably getting a new arena.
Note that this is still JUST RUMOUR. But it's compelling and sexy nonetheless.

10:14pm MDT update: Heatley will not waive his no-trade clause. He stays in Ottawa, and won't come here.
Earlier tonight: Just got off the phone with Gregor:
"The Oilers have traded Dustin Penner, Ladislav Smid and Andrew Cogliano for Dany Heatley. This will add $2.1 million to the Oilers' payroll."

We're still taking donations! We've achieved our goals for sending Jason Gregor to the 2009 NHL Entry Draft to cover all the goings-on for the OilersNation. But we still want to raise as much money as possible for the Stollery Childerns Hospital Foundation! Donate today!I spent most of my life watching ITV News here in good old E-town. I remember the weather with Bill Matheson and sports with Darren Dutchyshen. Lately, of course, I catch the six o'clock news with Lynda Steele and Gord Steinke.

As loyal Nationeers are aware, something excellent happened last week – something that could only happen when a bunch of ridiculous Oilers fans band together to ensure that they're getting best coverage a young website can provide them with.
Like a pack of maddened, hockey-obsessed jackals, you goons got together and decided to fundraise to send a Nation writer to Montreal so you could get all the Entry Draft coverage you'd ever want. It started with a snide remark Brownlee made about Wanye being a "cheap screw".
