So let's get this straight. The Boston Bruins are considering sending Tyler Seguin to the World Juniors in an attempt to get him more playing time and further his development.
The Oilers on the other hand are refusing to send Magnus Paajarvi Svensson to the same tournament, to rack up minutes against players his own age and restore his confidence because .... why exactly?

The Oilers will attempt to win their third straight game with three different goalies, when Tom Renney hands the reins to Nikolai Khabibulin tonight in Toronto. Why not go with the most unorthodox strategy in winning three straight; Using three different goalies. It is an awesome plan and according to Elias Sports Bureau it will the first time the Oilers win three straight games with three different goalies.

It would be a clumsy choice of words to say emphatically, "The Edmonton Oilers aren't going anywhere," but isn't that the obvious bottom line when it comes to the non-story hatched by QMI Agency Wednesday?

Yet another great effort from the Oilers tonight, this time against a pretty decent Montreal hockey club, and a come from behind win with Dustin Penner tallying the overtime goal. I really ought to be happy, but as much as I appreciate the positive signs we see on the ice, I find myself disgruntled with what’s happening off the ice.

They still play the game from time to time on NHL Classics. Wayne Gretzky in Toronto, 1980 spring. Mere months before old hockey men in Hogtown could be heard saying "he wouldn't have made the 1950-51 Leafs at ALL" and there he was on that night in historic Maple Leaf Gardens slicing and dicing. It was a night to remember, and the dawn of Oiler nation.
