You don't have to be a fan of the Edmonton Oilers to feel bad about how this season is ending for them or to hope nobody else suffered an injury on the flight home from Pittsburgh today after they got their butts kicked 5-1 by the Penguins. Enough.

Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
Gonna grab some afternoon delight.
My motto's always been; when it's right, it's right.
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night.
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day.
And you know the night is always gonna be there any way.
Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.
If Dustin Penner was still an Oiler this would be much more fitting, but after the overwhelmed Oilers put up a heroic effort in Detroit on Sunday, I wonder if this plucky bunch can muster up a similar effort this afternoon. I bet they will if this epic video was part of their late-morning team meeting.

The Edmonton Oilers have a large number of young men ready to graduate. Pro hockey is the next step, they've complete their studies and are ready to sign contracts. Next stop? Edmonton, Oklahoma City, Stockton. Or back to junior.

Do you think you can spot a champion? We certainly hope so because after the preliminary round, its down to the final five in the poster contest. And by five we mean seven.
But Wanye, that's too many!
That's what she said.

I have to admit that I get my nose a little bit out of joint when people start talking about how ‘soft’ Tom Gilbert is. I realize that he’s a 6’4” finesse defenceman who writes funny things in his blog over at the Oilers’ official site, but I think there is at least one item that should throw the ‘soft’ description out the window.
