Obviously the turmoil within the Players Association is going to cause a lot of trouble down the road. A lot. A real damn lot. And while it's understandable that most hockey fans are sitting at their computers reading the latest developments with a growing sense of dread that the current CBA will run out and the players will go on strike and effectively kill the league at best, and the sport at worst.
At least we're getting a hell of a show before the league goes all Manhattan Project.

As Kevin Lowe likes to say, expect the unexpected. I'm guessing that having Bob Stauffer return to TEAM 1260 with a two-hour radio show dedicated to the Edmonton Oilers ranks right up there with Mike Comrie signing on for a second tour in the City of Champions.

Going to work on Friday is always a great feeling, unless you are one of those who believe a weekend starts Thursday and you’re hung to the gills this morning, and today you feel even better because it’s a long weekend. But more importantly for sports fans, when you return to work the NHL season will have unofficially begun.

I'm not sure exactly where Patrick O'Sullivan will fit among the Edmonton Oilers top six forwards this coming season, but I'd be willing to wager he'll look like he belongs in the mix somewhere.

The Oilers filled the void of Bob Mancini with Mike Sillinger, who spent 17 years in the NHL. "Suitcase" Sillinger, a nickname he earned after playing for 12 different NHL teams, will start immediately.
