As an Oiler fan, I can give you chapter and verse about low points in organization history. The quick exit in 1983 was nothing—we knew the Oilers would be back. The Pronger trade request was a bad damn day, I suspect you remember it. Tonight? Losing like this to the current edition of the Calgary Flames? Come on.

Excuse me while I clean the vomit out of my carpet... Final Score: 8-1 Flames

Ladies and gentlemen, tonight is the fifth meeting of the season (and 214th meeting overall) between the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers. It's their last meeting until next season, too. I'd say the season series is up for grabs, as each team has won twice - the road team always won - but the Flames needed overtime in both wins at Rexall. The Flames need a win to tie the season series in terms of points earned.
That's about as far as this game goes in terms of "significance."
Calgary has 63 points and 12 games left. Edmonton has 59 points and 11 games left. The gap can close considerably with an Edmonton win, while a Calgary win probably cements their draft placement.

Another spring, same shopping list. A big center, a defenseman with a mean look and hair on his ass and maybe a shot from the point. WHY did they send Sheldon Souray away again? Anyway, Craig MacTavish has a busy summer ahead and he needs to be active. When he goes to market, what will he have in his arsenal for trade?

Now most of my hockey fantasies include Jordan Eberle, a bottle of sherry, a roaring fire and a DVD of All Dogs Go To Heaven. So when I heard about a video called the Fantasy Minute I was understandably excited.
Today we are introducing the Fantasy Minute but be forewarned - it's about fantasy hockey not necessarily fantasies about hockey. Oh and the mega babe host. No big deal.
