Theo Peckham's always been a favorite of mine, a throwback to an era when the enforcers could also play. The young man played in the deep end of the pool a year ago and survived, suggesting his arrows were heading in a good direction. Early this season, the sun shines less bright on the career of a young man hired to do an insanely difficult job: clear the crease, battle giants and move the puck efficiently. What's up with Teddy Peckman?

Former Oiler, Jason Strudwick, told me on my show yesterday that he hated the Canucks more than any other team. They are cocky, arrogant, mouthy, chippy and good. Toss in their riot-happy fans and you have a combination that ranks the Canucks #1 as the biggest rival for the Oilers and their fans.

David LeNeveu (goalie) and Kirill Tulupov (also in photo) are two of the men "on the farm" for the 11-12 season. A minor league team that housed talents like Jeff Petry and Linus Omark a year ago is brimming again with talent. Who are these guys?
