IT OFFICIALLY BEGINS

It is official. The NHL announced they’ve cancelled 82 games up until Oct 24th. Six Oiler games are officially done, and we likely are looking at more in the coming weeks.

This sucks.

The Oilers were supposed to start their season Saturday October 13th, on Hockey Night in Canada, in Vancouver.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings were supposed to invade Rexall Place October 16th and face Nail Yakupov, RyanNugent-Hopkins, Jordan Eberle and maybe Taylor Hall, but that won’t happen because the NHL and NHLPA can’t find a way to split up $3.3 billion in revenue.

Awesome.

The other games cancelled are:

October 18th in San Jose.
October 19th in Anaheim.
October 21st in Los Angeles.
October 24th at home v. the Flames.

How many more games will be cancelled? Who knows, but I’m guessing at least  another 100 before the league and PA grow up and come to a solution.

The only saving grace for Oiler fans is that Justin Schultz will be able to learn the pro game in the AHL instead of having to jump directly to the NHL, and Hall will not have to try and speed up the recovery of his surgically repaired shoulder and try to be ready for the start of the season.

Of course you could argue that the later the season starts the better chance the Oilers have of playing  meaningful games in March and April. At this point you need to grasp on to anything to save you from frothing at the mouth, and burning your jersey in disgust.

Stay strong Oilersnation, the good news is there is lots of other exciting hockey you can watch to fill your fix. Bantam and Midget AAA is great hockey. Check out an AJHL game, the WHL or ACAC or CIS. It isn’t the NHL, but the games are incredibly exciting.

Plus you get to sit much closer to the action without having to drop $200 bucks.

If you really need to see some hockey involving Oiler prospects you can still get in our road trip to OKC.

    hello Dr Ugbokhare
    I wanted to let you know that I am in love with your spells. I order the spell for job success and I began receiving interviews within one week. I know I am close to a solid offer. However, I recently ordered a money spell and noticed grey figures standing over me at night. This happened the first time I ordered your spell for Protection. Either way, I do not feel the “figures” wish me any harm. On the contrary. I feel it/they are watching over
    me. Please feel free to share your thoughts. and even the love spell you cast for me my ex came back to me after two days you cast the spell ……I have ordered three to date.

    i know it take a lot of alot of work and energy to cast these spells. I am so blessed to know I have someone I can count on.i would like to thank you for positive difference in my life – and I am thankful that you respond/read your email. You would be surprised how many business owners omit the personal care and attention to their customers.please contact this great spell caster on his email: templeofmoneyspell@gmail.com
    I am sure I will be writing another testimonial for the money spell. I love the positive energy I feel after you cast spells for me. I feel you give me a more than fair chance to manifest positive changes in my life and in the lives of others. Isn’t that the greatest gift of
    all? Dr Ugbokhare your email templeofmoneyspell@gmail.com is the best email someone can contact without fear cause You are the best!
