Back when OilersNation started in 2007 there was a vibrant series of Oilers blogs that were busily churning out content on a near daily basis. A young Wanye wanted to be so badly a part of this scene that he carefully sent each blog a note asking if they wanted to join up and contribute to OilersNation in exchange for good old fashioned cash money.

Over this extremely busy Super Bowl Weekend the fine people at TSN Analytics had former Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins on their program. The show aired on Saturday the 31st before the Oilers took on the Flames (and got beat down after being dominated most of the game) and can be heard right here. It's worth a listen as Dallas Eakins is a relatively engaging speaker and since there are some interesting topics covered. I don't think it will change your mind on Eakins as a coach, but he covers things from being sold a bill of goods when it came to joining Edmonton, to the structure of the roster, to hiring and using Tyler Dellow.

The trade deadline is four weeks away, Monday March 2nd, and over the
next 28 days Craig MacTavish is going to receive multiple offers for
Jeff Petry. Don't be surprised if one of those offers comes from the San Jose Sharks.
Doug Wilson was named General Manager of the Sharks on May 13th, 2003, and during his first NHL entry draft Wilson showed the hockey world he would always be willing to make a trade. He made eight trades on June 22nd and 23rd.
