You thought the ratings for last night's WJC semi-final with Canada and the USA was big, wait until the we see the numbers for the return of the RED OX tonight for the Oilers. When Liam Reddox was sent to OKC in favour of Ryan Jones, many questioned the decision.
As the Oilers PK sunk lower than the Miami Dolphins home record, fans were pleading for the return of Edmonton's favourite Ginger, so I can only imagine that when #85 steps onto the ice tonight the little Ox will receive a hearty applause.

I never did hack my ears off with a rusty butter knife back in the days when Bobby McFerrin's mindless ballad for simpletons, Don't Worry, Be Happy, used to grace the radio airwaves, but I wanted to.

At the risk of being accused of practising medicine without a licence, it looks to me like the Edmonton Oilers might have dodged a kill-shot to the head when it comes to Jordan Eberle's left ankle.

Team Canada plays the Americans today in the latest battle with our friends to the south. The World Juniors have a special place in the hearts of this nation, partly because it's a preview of coming attractions (see photo). Edmonton Oiler fans have learned to pay special attention to the World Juniors over the years. It's a chance to see future Oilers and has been from the beginning.

I was glad when the Oilers brought Colin Fraser in. It was an acquisition that made sense on a few different levels. I’ll also be happy when they send him on down the line, something they should do at this year’s trade deadline if at all possible.
