It was a tough weekend in OilersNation and the Mailbag is here to help you forget about it. Did they get their asses kicked two games in a row? Nope. Don't remember it. Never happened. *sigh*

Congrats to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on winning the Super Bowl! And congrats to those of you who managed to stay awake during the entire game! I think we ALL deserve to briefly touch the Lombardi Trophy before it's handed over to a white collar criminal, who is clearly the one who REALLY deserves the praise for winning a championship! But for now you'll just have to settle for another instillment of First Star, Worst Star!

The AHL's main job is to produce NHL talent for the parent team, and one has to believe goalie Laurent Brossoit is one step closer to NHL employment. Although it may not come until this fall, a strong finish to this season in Bakersfield will help Oilers management make their decision.

It is common knowledge in Edmonton that Travis Hamonic wants a trade to Western Canada. It is equally common knowledge that the Oilers need a stable right-shot defenceman or two and Hamonic—a young, cost-controlled rearguard who averages 23:44 per game—fits the bill wonderfully.
With Edmonton now 10 points out of the playoffs and coming off an ugly loss to Montreal yesterday, a chance for the entire fanbase to assess Hamonic could be a much-needed distraction from the Oilers’ play.
