Some people don't need any help...
UPDATED: All our predictions are up, Trogdor showed off and I added a few more predictions from around the internerds.
Well, the pre-season prognosticators are getting out their guesses for the season, so I decided that I will compile a list of them where we can discuss/ridicule/cajole their predictions, make our own and have it all down on record for the end of the season where we can come back and see how very very wrong we are.
Here are the rankings as I find them. I will post more as they come to my attention. Continue reading 'How to Look Like an Idiot in 1 Year or Less'»
Liam Reddox placed on waivers - St. Louis bound?
Opening Night Lines
To kick things off, here are today’s practice lines.. these are expected to be the opening night lines. However, Quinn says that they are not set in stone (although I think he meant more long term):
JFJ Horcoff Hemsky
Stone Comrie O’Sullivan
Penner Brule Cogliano
Moreau Gagner Stortini
St. Louis Interested in Liam Reddox?

Will lightning strike in NY for Schremp?
Schremp’s leaving today…
The NY Islanders have claimed Robbie off of waivers. He finally gets to strut his stuff in the NHL. The Islanders could use some offence so we’ll see if Schremp is up to it.

Liam Reddox has also been placed on waivers today, so no news about him clearing or being picked up until sometime tomorrow.

One might think the "Pubis Whatever" and that thing above his lip are related, but not so..
First off, Marc Pouliot will likely be placed on the IR for Osteitis Pubis or a “pubis whatever” as Pat Quinn eloquently put it. The Edmonton Journal has a write up on the situation with Pouliot.
A little bit of research shows that it looks like this can be one of those things that sticks around for a while, and has been known to occur within hockey players (Kevin Lowe being one of them, as the Journal mentioned). Lowe was able to return to the lineup within 3 games, but the most effective treatment for this is rest. Continue reading 'A few small updates on the Oil'»

Theo Peckham was also placed on the IR.
That leaves us with: Continue reading 'Oilers announce 5 more cuts'»
