In Canada, the goalie has special status. I have a few friends who play goal in men's leagues, and they haven't paid for one damn thing hockey related in forever. Now, the phone rings day and night, their significant others have a love-hate relationship with the game, but you'd have to dig deep to find anyone who wasn't working hard to stay on their good side. Without a goalie, you're screwed. Every October in recent memory, the Oilers have been screwed.

Another day, another dollar, another edition of First Star, Worst Star! This week's edition is dedicated to Rhonda Rousey, whose soul left her body last night on live TV. Hopefully Rhonda from Canada Post can fill the hole that is now left in our hearts. RIP Rhonda, you will be missed.

If you're looking for the best goalie wearing Oilers (-ish) colors currently, it's Laurent Brossoit of the Bakersfield Condors. Is he NHL-ready? We may find out soon. Here's a look at the big hits from a week of hockey action across the globe.

A patchwork lineup on paper shouldn’t have been much of a match against the top team in the division, but the Bakersfield Condors showed they weren’t about to be overmatched by the Ontario Reign.
Laurent Brossoit put 22 saves on the board Saturday night to hold together the Condors well enough so they could post a 3-0 win over the Reign, the leaders in the AHL’s Pacific Division and the third-place team in the entire league.
