Andrey Osadchenko: You recently came back from the World Juniors. How difficult it is going into this tournament as a Slovak? In all honesty, nobody really expected your team to achieve anything significant.
Martin Marincin: The Last 2 years have been tough for our team. We would lose to Switzerland and go down to play in the relegation round. But before the tournament in Calgary we worked hard at the practices and everything looked good for us.

Having just arrived into Vancouver from Edmonton with my team, the New York Islanders, both my room mate, Claude LaPointe and I were just getting settled in. It was a couple days before the trade deadline. The phone rings, we look at each other and because I was the youngest I had to get up to answer it.

Corey Potter was one of the feel good stories of the early season for the Edmonton Oilers. A long-time minor league journeyman caught the break in Edmonton he never seemed able to catch under Tom Renney in New York. With the Oilers’ defense crippled by injury and inferior talent before training camp even opened, Potter took advantage of the opportunity and established himself as one of the team’s better options in the early going. It was enough to earn Potter the first one-way contract of his career, a two-year deal worth $775,000 per season.
Unfortunately, by eye Potter’s play has fallen off lately. What has his game looked like statistically?

The Edmonton Oilers will get over losing 6-3 to the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight. It's the loss of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins that's going to leave a mark if the prized rookie is out for any length of time.

In August of last season, the Edmonton Oilers hired a Sutter. This is the equivalent of a Hatfield sitting down with a McCoy.
