The world Junior Championships hold sway in this country in a way that can't possibly be justified by the actual prize at sake. No sir. The appeal of the WJ's is the "lore" of the event and many of the significant moments in the tournament's history have been provided by teenagers drafted by the Edmonton Oilers. What does this year's tournament hold for us? Hold on!

Darnell Nurse will be front and center for Edmonton Oilers fans at this year's World Junior Championships. He's one of (at least) three Oilers prospects who will be on display at this year's Christmas party.

For an Oilers fan, Dallas is about great joy (Joseph and Marchant) and great pain (Mike Keane scores two middle frame heartbreak '99 and Mike freaking Modano).

Anton Lander shot lights out in Oklahoma City this week and the Oilers were paying attention. He joined recent recalls Brad Hunt and Oscar Klefbom in the NHL (with Brandon Davidson heading back down). In junior, Kyle Platzer continues to roll and Liam Coughlin caught fire in the BCJHL.
