In the storied history of the Edmonton Oilers, few trades have turned out better than Colin Fraser and a 7th round pick for Ryan Smyth. Hell, I'm not even certain there IS a 7th round! I'm not sure it's the biggest trade in Oiler history, but it's the longest and that's for sure.

When the Oilers lost in Boston, Detroit and Chicago many felt it was a sign of how far they had to go to become a contender? Well then what about last night v. the Ottawa Senators?

The Oilers young forwards, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (1st, 2011), Taylor Hall (1st, 2010), Magnus Paajarvi (10th, 2009) and Jordan Eberle (22nd, 2008) will take on the Senators young blueliners led by Erik Karlsson (15th, 2008), Jared Cowan (9th, 2009) David Rundblad (17th, 2009) and Brian Lee (9th, 2005).
The Oilers are stocked with young potential offensive stars, while the Sens backend is filled with the same sort of potential, which makes me wonder if they would considering swapping one for one in a year or so?

It’s a famous saying, one popularized by the great American writer Mark Twain, who (perhaps incorrectly) attributes it to former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”
What does it mean?

Yes, I wrote that title. Not only did I write it, but I mean it.
