The absolute highlight of the weekend for Oilers fans had to be watching the rookies last night. All the stars were out on a clear night for the future. Hall, Eberle and Magnus Pääjärvi showed tremendous skill and the ability to be in the right place at the right time (I call it Steve Shutt syndrome) and dominated the ice. There are going to be growing pains for this team, but the future looks bright and there will be plenty to cheer about in 2010-11.

A win is a win, right Oiler fans? Last year the Canucks beat up by the OIlers for fun, so while a win in a rookie-only tournament won't remain in the record books, it did remind fans of the Copper and Blue what it feels like to celebrate a win. The Oiler rookies won 4-1, and the least talked about member of the TMJ trio opened a few eyes and mouths.

Wanye posed the question of whether Oilers Nation should be more mainstream just yesterday, a question sparked by Robin Brownlee’s excellent article on bloggers and access a little over a week earlier. Over at Copper & Blue, Jaysen Knight has been writing a series exploring similar issues.
And those examples are simply a drop in the bucket – the same debate, in various forms, has shown up all over the internet, because media folks, bloggers and the organizations they cover all have skin in the game.

Andrew Cogliano signed a one-year deal yesterday and after speaking with him he sounds confident and ready to take his game to the next level this season. Cogliano was very forthcoming in his thoughts on trade rumours, faceoffs and seemed extremely excited to have Tom Renney as his coach.
