It's Friday night; the Oilers are out of the playoffs already and the game in on PPV. That doesn’t seem like a lot of incentive to watch, but many of you will watch because: you bought the PPV package so it’s already paid for, you’ll be at the Pint tipping back a few and the game will be on, or mostly because you want to see the New Guys.

My apologies for the tardiness of Around The League, but today I had a chance to lace up the skates and play along side my favourite hockey player; Glenn Anderson.

All things considered, it looks to me like Edmonton Oilers GM Steve Tambellini had himself a pretty good day Wednesday before the NHL trade deadline ticked by.

Chicago Blackhawks: 5
Edmonton Oilers: 2
Outside of a single one minute interval in the second period, the Oilers were held off the scoresheet. They were outshot 47-14, as in addition to their usual problems they were blessed with an AHL defence corps. Taylor Chorney led the way with a minus-3 rating.

99 out of 100 years, a game the same day as the trade deadline would leave the honorable Citizens of the OilersNation asking questions like "how fast can we scramble a jet to go pick up "insert new player here" so that he can play tonight?" We would also be speculating wildly about how well the new player would fit into the overall structure and would have convinced ourselves that the Oilers would in fact go 17-3 down the stretch to make the playoffs.
