A buddy text messaged us last night with a link to the video above. "Whenever you talk about running the Nations as a business we can't help but laugh knowing that you are a moron. We couldn't picture what it would be like until we saw this video of Kenny Powers running K-Swiss. Is this what things are like at Nation HQ?"
(Note that there are swear words in the video, KP doesn't mess around. It is also hilarious.)

I was intrigued, curious and disappointed after watching, reading and listening to a few things Oilers related this week. Tom Renney had an interesting take on Ryan Nugent-Hopkings, the Gagner camp's had an epic battle and a conclusion to the arena financing might take even longer to sort out.

Linus Omark’s at an interesting place in his career, and Oilers’ fans seem to have widely varying opinions of him. Some feel he could potentially be an offensive difference maker a the NHL level (I’m in that group), while others see him as a flashy but deeply flawed player crowded out by other options in the system.

You may be shocked to learn this, but since the departure of bingofuel there has been very little in the way of adult supervision around Nation Central Command. The writers continue to write, the radio continues to radio and thankfully the advertisers continue to pay their bills.

Earlier today, the Anaheim Ducks signed Andrew Cogliano to a three-year contract worth $2.39 million per season. Lowetide’s take on it is here, and he makes a quick comment on the Oilogosphere in the piece:
As an aside, if Steve Tambellini had signed this contract, I suspect Oiler Nation would be rushing to the internet to express their displeasure at the signing.
I think that deserves comment.
