GAME SEVEN: NOTHING BETTER

On April 29th, 1997 Todd Marchant blew past a stumbling Grant Ledyard and into the hearts of Oiler fans forever, when he ripped a snapshot past Andy Moog in overtime of game seven v. the Dallas Stars. Curtis Joseph made a stunning save on Joe Nieuwendyk earlier in OT, but Marchant's goal sent Oiler fans into a frenzy fourteen years ago, and anytime you mention his goal a true diehard Oiler fan can tell you exactly where they were when he scored.

There is nothing more exciting, nerve-wracking, gut-wrenching or better than GAME SEVEN; unless your team loses, then it sucks worse than walking in on your parents bumping uglys.

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE EDITION XII

Kristen Kreuk, who played Lana Lang in Smallville, was in the top-ten for most beautiful eyes and it is hard to argue. I'm sure she'd crack the top-ten in a few other categories as well, but I'm curious if she would see recent events in the hockey world the same as I? Probably not.

PROTECT YOURSELF

Last night Raffi Torres steamrolled Brent Seabrook behind the Hawks net and got two minutes for interference. Instantly fans and media were reacting on twitter. The opinions ranged from "He should be suspended for the rest of the playoffs," to "It was a hard hit and guys need to keep their head up."

There is no debating that Torres hits hard. Some would say that he hits to hurt, and there might be some truth to that, but he also is one of the few players who knows can change the outcome with a big hit; whether it is clean or borderline.

HISTORY FAVOURS FORWARDS

Last year the hot topic was Taylor or Tyler, and in the end it didn't become much of a debate amongst the Oiler brass, and after one NHL season it seems clear the Oilers made the right selection calling Hall instead of Seguin. Seguin will still likely turn out to be a very good player, I just don't see him being as dynamic as Hall. This year the debate isn't as much about individual players, but more about their position. Do you take a centre/forward like, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog, Sean Couturier or Jonathon Huberdeau or do you opt for a defenceman like Adam Larsson.

From where I sit, it seems clear they should take a forward.

THOUGHTS FROM GARBAGE BAD DAY

Kesha made this garbage bag dress herself, supposedly, and wore it to the 2010 VMAs. As garbage bag dresses go, it isn't that bad, and yesterday when the Oilers cleaned out their lockers, had their season ending meeting with the coaches and spoke to the media the feeling wasn't as bad as previous years.

Last season, outside of Sheldon Souray's classic rant, the rest of the interviews were about as exciting and uplifting as listening to your buddy ramble on about his/her past relationships.
