Words can't explain the awesomeness of this photo. The blackhole of hair surrounding an absolulely ridiculous tattoo, with hiked up camouflage boxers, the best belt buckle I've seen in years and a laissez-faire grin illustrate how important it is to be comfortable with who we are.

With every loss the Oilers are getting closer to being the first team since Ottawa in 1995 and 1996 to have the first overall pick in consecutive seasons. The Devils won their fourth straight earlier today and they are now tied with the Oilers for last place with 35 points. The Devils finally seem to be playing up to their potential, while the Oilers are 2-12-2 in their last 16 and seem destined to be first to the podium on June 23rd in Minnesota.

GDB 46.0: IS GROWTH MORE IMPORTANT THAN WINS?

It looks like Ales Hemsky won't be going to the NHL All-Star game again due to an injury. Hemsky is on the shelf with a concussion and likely won't be going to Carolina or partaking in the first All Star draft next Friday.The revolving door to the Oilers' infirmary just keeps on spinning, as Hemsky enters on the right side of the medicinal carousel, Shawn Horcoff is coming out the left side and will replace Hemsky on the roster.

The bigger questions should be, who replaces Hemsky on the right wing, and where does Horcoff play? Obviously he will play in the middle, but which line should he play on?

GDB 45.0: KID LINE ON THE PP

In 1999 Shannon Tweed starred in a typical terrible made-for-TV movie called Power Play. I'm not sure why the former Playmate of the Year (1982) would star in such a lame flick, considering she's been with Gene Simmons since 1983 and doesn't need the money, but considering her other flops I shouldn't be surprised. The only thing worse than the Oilers powerplay right now was the plot of Power Play;

A woman survives by coming onto wealthy single men, and taking them for everything they are worth, sometimes killing. She proceeds to her next target - another wealthy man who has a daughter whom he mistreats. She tries to marry him but he dies before they could. She does, however, make off with some of his money. He also did not include his daughter in his will. When she and her boyfriend discover what she did, they decide to go after her and get back what she thinks is hers.

Fittingly there was a combined six "shes and hers" in the final confusing sentance, which was exactly how the Oilers' six on three (and two for a few seconds when Saku Koivu got a new stick) PP looked in Anaheim on Sunday.

GDB 44.0: POWER OUTAGE

The Oilers haven't scored a powerplay goal since Taylor Hall beat Jonathon Quick December 23rd at Staples Centre; a span of ten games. They are 2-7-1 in those ten games, which shouldn't surprise anyone.
