This is Stan Weir. He is a very important figure in Oilers history, because of his role on the first three Oiler NHL teams. He was a vital part of the group in 79-80, his role began to fade the following season (as detailed by Peter Gzowski in his classic book The Game of Our Lives).
Weir did the difficult work until the gifted kids could take on the chores, and in that way lives forever in Oiler lore.

With the departure of Captain Ethan Moreau to the Columbus Blue Jackets, it is time once again to dust off an old argument that has laid dormant for the past few weeks as we all fawned over the 2010 Entry Draft.
Once hypothetical, it is now of the utmost importance for any Oiler fan drawing air into his or her lungs with any great regularity.

After making a very public trade demand and calling out Oilers management, management's subsequent attempts to accomodate said demands with no success, and last week, a 24 hour stint on waivers, what's next for Sheldon Souray and the Edmonton Oilers?
