In the end, it doesn't matter who is to blame, what went wrong or why it went bad. When a relationship has passed the point of no return, it's not a matter of if it ends, but when. You can almost hear the tick, tick, tick of time winding down. I suspect the Edmonton Oilers and Ales Hemsky are nearing the start of that countdown.

When it comes to minor league teams, Oiler history is a "mixed bag." Some seasons delivered quality prospects while the minor league team was a loser or also-ran, and some teams were winners without sending much to the show. This year's OKC Barons have a lot of interesting stories.

Andy Sutton's eight-game suspension for the high charge he took at Alexei Ponikarovsky of the Carolina Hurricanes Wednesday is neither too harsh nor too lenient. While the Edmonton Oilers and fans might disagree, my sense is NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan got it right today.

The holiday season is almost upon us and your ol' pal Lowetide has given you an early gift with this week's NationRadio episode. Oilers talk? Check. Flames stuff? Why not. Ryan Lambert explaining what exactly "Ovechkin's steroids" are exactly? Oh yeah.
This is NationRadio.

There is no doubt that when these two teams face each other, the stats and standings go out the window and for sixty minutes, only one thought comes to mind; Embrace the Hate!
