The first time I saw Andrew Cogliano play hockey, it looked |(to me) like the Oilers had another Butch Goring type on their hands. A Ralph Backstrom, Davey Keon type: undersized speed demon who could forecheck you to death, had a motor with one gear (overdrive) and enough offense to be considered a legit top 9 forward. A number of coaches and 4 years later, he may have arrived. Is it too late?

Arman Agustin can't come to Oilersnation, so I'm going to bring it to him, even if that means jumping a jet Monday night and flying for 15 hours to get to Guimba, a little city in the province of Nueva Ecija, half the world away in the Philippines.

This early posted edition goes out to our good friend -30- in the commentary. To say that -30- has been all over our jock about posting NationRadio late in the week would be an understatement. Telling us off directly, going over our head and appealing to Lowetide. He has made complaints via every channel. Well played.
And so this Episode of NationRadio is dedicated to -30-. She's up bright and early for you Sir. To everyone else - this Japanese "music video" that our main man @ounyea tweeted at us earlier goes out to you.

It's been a long time since a WHL kid topped the draft rankings across the board. With the release of Redline Report's latest top 10, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins joins some select company.
