What was your gut reaction to seeing Zack Kassian of the Vancouver Canucks rub the Edmonton Oilers noses in the stinking end of a 4-0 waxing at Rogers Arena Friday by mocking Sam Gagner?
Video provided of a scrum near the Edmonton bench at the end of the game shows Kassian, who badly broke Gagner's jaw with a high stick in pre-season, yapping at the Oilers and motioning toward his face. He appears to be saying "What's this?" or "What's that?" in reference to the cage Gagner is wearing to protect his jaw.

The Edmonton Oilers were humiliated by the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night. There are other ways to describe it: they were embarrassed, out-classed, routed, disgraced, humbled, shamed. Whatever the word choice, their 4-0 loss was a game where it appeared the team didn't even belong in the same league as their Pacific Division rivals.

It all started so well: a second round draft pick of the Edmonton Oilers and a part of Northern Alberta's latest rebuild—this time on the ice at Rexall Place. Hamilton celebrated with an outstanding final season in junior (which included the World Junior experience representing Canada) and turned pro in the fall of 2011. Two and a half years later, Curtis Hamilton hasn't progressed and is nearing the end of his entry level deal. What's next?
