Lots of WJC talk this week on NationRadio with the annual tournament right around the corner. Among the other topics this week is Magnus Paajarvi being sent from the Oilers to their AHL affiliate, the 2011-12 Boston Bruins, Red Deer Rebels and OKC Barons.

One thing Oiler history can tell us this morning: growing pains are real. This weekend has been full of signs about the future--Magnus Paajarvi sent down, the spectacular Eberle and the impact players in waiting Hall and RNH. Some signs are so good it's enough to make you giddy, and others remind us of just how long a day can be.

Gregor asked your ol' pal Wanye to handle the GDB today on account of the fact he is "handing out hampers to less fortunate Edmonton families today." If there is ever a reason to bang out a 400 word article for a guy in a pinch, this has to be it.

Magnus Paajarvi took it like a man. A demotion is never an easy thing, but older folks will tell you good things can come from times of trouble. The list of men who have gone before him is, well, pretty damn long.
