On April 29th, 1997 Todd Marchant blew past a stumbling Grant Ledyard and into the hearts of Oiler fans forever, when he ripped a snapshot past Andy Moog in overtime of game seven v. the Dallas Stars. Curtis Joseph made a stunning save on Joe Nieuwendyk earlier in OT, but Marchant's goal sent Oiler fans into a frenzy fourteen years ago, and anytime you mention his goal a true diehard Oiler fan can tell you exactly where they were when he scored.
There is nothing more exciting, nerve-wracking, gut-wrenching or better than GAME SEVEN; unless your team loses, then it sucks worse than walking in on your parents bumping uglys.

If 630 CHED was among the sceptics two years ago when I suggested Bob Stauffer could end up splitting his time between being an analyst for their radio station on Edmonton Oilers game nights and hosting a noon-hour call-in show across town at TEAM 1260, they aren't doubters now.

Have you heard of the radio? Have you heard of NationRadio? Why not give it a listen - it really is a heck of a show . Cam Connor, Bob Stauffer, Jason Gregor, Kent Wilson and Jonathan Willis round out the guests for the week of April 23, 2011, joined as always by the legendary Lowetide.

We learned a lot about Oklahoma City this season. We now know how to pronounce the state's name properly (this woman was central to the process) and we know that Oklahoma produces lots and lots of really good country singers. What else have we learned?

The day Boston drafted Milan Lucic, it was not obvious to all the Bruins had selected a future impact forward. He had size--6.02, 204 according to Central Scouting--but he wasn't at the top of the scoring charts (9 goals all season) and his PIMS (149) suggested long stretches in the sin bin for feeling shame. The Edmonton Oilers need a "Milan Lucic" and right soon--where is he?
