It is very early in the NHL season, but this morning the Oilers find themselves on a four game losing streak and sitting in 30th place. They have three games in hand on the Devils, and sit one point back of them, but I don't think any player thought they'd be in 30th six games into the season.

Each week, I do an update on Oilers prospects who are making noise in leagues below the NHL. It was designed to be a rotating update, 8-10 players per week in an effort to (eventually) touch base with all of the club's good prospects. It is quickly becoming the Martin Marincin weekly update. The kid from Kosice is something else.

Yeah, I know there was a game tonight. I watched it, and the only two points I have much interest in talking about are a) another lovely shorthanded goal for Jordan Eberle and b) Dany Heatley being on my fantasy team. Beyond that, the less said the better.

Tonight is what you might call a perfect storm, if you define a perfect storm as "The Oilers playing on a Saturday night, after the Eskimos play someone or other at Commonwealth and it's Gregor's birthday."
Get ready liver, you are about to get it and we are about to give it to you.

So, somebody named Lisi Monro has set up an on-line petition and Facebook page for people opposed to the idea of the Edmonton Oilers establishing a cheerleading team for home games at Rexall Place.
