WIth only three preseason games left, the bubble boys have precious time to try and convince Tom Renney to keep them here or receive, what is most likely a one-way ticket to the OKC.

Clearly he had designed it after downing his 17th BL after watching Gregory Stewart pot the game winner in Vancouver last night.
