Nice job, kid. Take a seat.
On this wonderful, wonderful day after Thanksgiving and on the day of Jay-Z visiting our fair City, we are reminded of a fellow Power Baller a bit closer to home and silently give thanks for his existence. We are referring to a man who is an estimated 10x richer than his namesake – local champ…
Last night was a chilly Saturday evening in the City of Champions, so your we did what any red blooded guy would do – bought a case of beer on the way back to Wanye Manor, turned off the phone, turned off the computer and sat down to watch our beloved Oilers on the second…

(Editors note: Author is Jason Gregor. We’ll attribute to him properly when he gets on the system) Finally the Oilers will play a meaningful game for the first time in almost six months.

It’s become a tradition: every year at OilersNation (and at our sister sites FlamesNation and CanucksArmy), our writers and commenters pick their stars — that one player who they will praise without end no matter what — and their goats — their yearly whipping-boy; he who can do no good for the season.
While you have been waiting for lunch hour to arrive, Jason Gregor and Robin Brownlee have been hard at work down at RX1, gathering intel on the rebel forces.
