This Saturday the Oilers will be in Detroit to take on the Red Wings. The game starts at 2:00 PM Detroit time which is noon here in Edmonton. The Wings are not the team they were a few years ago, age even catches up with legends. With players like Lidstrom, Yzerman and Hull no longer flying around the ice at Joe Louis arena, visiting teams now have a better chance to get a victory but for the Oilers there is still an issue to deal with this trip: afternoon game!

Oiler fans had grown fond of Gretzky and Kurri, Messier and Anderson, Coffey and Huddy, Fuhr and Moog. The Coffey trade was a tough item to overcome--for Oilers Nation and for Craig Simpson. It worked out wonderfully for both.
