One of the many traditions here at the OilersNation.com interwebian website is the annual rite of picking the Goat and the Star for the upcoming season. What began as a way to blame an entirely awful season on a single undeserving player has evolved into a hilarious means of mocking one another to pass the time.
The season draws near - the goats need be named.

Some fans are asking if it would make sense for the Edmonton Oilers to put forward an offer sheet on Drew Doughty, who is locked in a contract dispute with the Los Angeles Kings. Uh, no. No it doesn't.

The Edmonton Oilers continued to separate the wheat from the chaff this morning, shipping 12 players off, most of them to Oklahoma City. None of the players sent out are particularly surprising – Chris VandeVelde might have been expected to stick a little longer, and Kirill Tulupov appears destined for an AHL contract, but on the whole the more interesting exercise is looking at the guys who remain rather than the guys who just got sent away.

Often we watch those who have accomplished the near-impossible dream and wish we had their life - millions of dollars, millions of fans and seemingly no real-life issues.

After a rather calm Battle of Alberta last night, the Oilers and Flames meet for the 2nd and final time this preseason, and with Darcy Hordichuk dressed you can expect some fireworks. The veteran has been a wrecking ball in his two games thus far, so you know he'll be trying to set the tone early with a big hit.
Tonight's lineup includes a few guys who are close to making the team, and I'll be watching them closely.
