Richard Bachman had an incredible week (2GP, 0.48 .984) for the Oklahoma City Barons and leads this week's good arrows. He's joined by Jason Williams (AHL), Greg Chase (WHL), Zack Nagelvoort (NCAA) and Anton Slepyshev (KHL). More after the break.

Craig MacTavish’s press conference on Friday pleased very few people; he promised off the top that nobody was going to be satisfied by it and he delivered.
One of the prickliest moments came when the general manager was lumped in by a reporter with Kevin Lowe and Scott Howson as part of the management team that has run the Oilers into the ground. MacTavish argued that he’d been on the job less than two years; in the aftermath a number of writers have since doubled down on the claim that he’s been one of those primarily responsible for destroying the team.
Who is right?

Right now, you may be asking yourself who the hell is Ryan Robinson? Well... Ryan is the guy behind the emotional "Life As An Oilers Fan" video that has been making the rounds of the Oilogosphere in the past few days. If you haven't watched Ryan's video, take a few minutes to do that today. After posting this to YouTube on Wednesday, Ryan's video has already racked up more than 23,000 views. Ryan took a few minutes to sit down with me, and explain what inspired him to speak out via his YouTube page. Here is part of our conversation.
