So it turns out that all you need to do to get what you want in life is plead, pout and complain in the most public forum you can find. Entries have poured in at the deadline and our heartfelt apologies go out to all of the entries that didn't make the final cut. We love you too, just less than the people who made it into the finals is all.
We just cannot overemphasize how much we enjoy these photoshop contests and appreciate everyone's hard work. After setting down pretty specific theme that alienated a lot of people in the comments section - we feel completely vindicated now that we have narrowed down the 26 all top quality entries into a final 8.
2012 Summer olympics be damned - this is the competition that is being watched by the World.

One of the ongoing mysteries surrounding the Edmonton Oilers is the 'elevator shaft' 4th line. A tough 11-12 season should have been followed by a mass exodus for the offending parties. So, with all due respect, what the hell?

It's summer but there's still lots of hockey to talk about. Shane Doan is the league's foremost free agent and is rumoured to be going just about everywhere. In Edmonton, Nail Yakupov is now under contract and discussions on the new downtown arena are ongoing.
Allan Mitchell (better known as Lowetide) talks about all this and more with guests David Staples, Jonathan Willis, Kirk Luedeke, Cam Davie and Jeff Krushell.

It was a bit of a surprise when the Edmonton Oilers failed to trade Linus Omark at the draft this past year. There was clearly no room for the player in Edmonton, and by April the player was making it plain that he’d rather be elsewhere.
When he wasn’t dealt, the obvious read was that there simply wasn’t much interest. According to Omark, however, that isn’t the case – he expects to be playing in the NHL in 2012-13.
