This fall, some argued that the Oilers were making a mistake inserting all three of their blue-chip forward prospects into the line-up at the same time. The player I suggested should have been given another year of seasoning at a lower professional level was Magnus Paajarvi, and given what we’ve seen so far this season I think that would have been the correct decision.

I always envied pals Jim Matheson and Rod Phillips for all the years they had the opportunity to ply their trade covering Wayne Gretzky and those magnificent Edmonton Oilers teams of the 1980s.

On a day that will eventually become a National Holiday in Canada - we celebrate Gretzmas as invented by Citizen Charlie F of Lethbridge and his crew of Oilers Fans.

I wonder what happened to the kids from this picture? The one without the hat went on to be the greatest player the NHL had ever seen, and today somewhere he will be celebrating his 50th birthday.

Happy 50th to the kid in this photo. And thanks. For everything. I wouldn't have believed it unless I was there to see it.
