Like many others, I believe that Ales Hemsky is very, very close to the end of his time with the Edmonton Oilers. He will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, reports about a contract extension have been somewhere between ‘muted’ and ‘non-existent,’ and if there’s one thing a probable lottery club cannot afford to do it is to allow an asset as valuable as Hemsky to walk away for nothing.
So, assuming that Hemsky is going to be dealt, where will he be going and what should the Oilers be looking at in return?

No surprise in this corner about the poop hitting the fan after the Edmonton Oilers hit the halfway mark of the season on their hands and knees in a 4-1 loss in Dallas Saturday. Everybody got some on them.

Nation Radio's first show of 2012 is top notch. We leave the WJHC behind and get back to the business of talking NHL players and prospects. We get some in-depth Leafs updates courtesy JP NIkota and James Mirtle as well as some Flames talk (eyeroll) with Kent Wilson.

They say if you are going to go experience a new culture you should avoid getting used to it by degree and jump in with both feet instead. Well actually they say you should do the exact opposite.
But who are they exactly right? Oh they are actual "travel experts?"

Reality has hit Oilersnation, the Oilers still aren't very good, and with 41 games left to play, many want to find someone to blame and it seems Tom Renney has become a popular target. For years many some of the same fans and media clamoured that Craig MacTavish needed to go, because allegedly he stymied the offensive growth of players.
