Good Morning everyone! Its the first day of work in the new year, and miraculously I have no meetings. I’ll take this as a good sign for the new year.
As for the Oilers, they will pull their heads out of their asses eventually, and watching the kids in the juniors we as Oiler fans have a lot to look forward too. My only issue is that we are going to rush them all to the show next year, and probably ruin a couple of them (see Brule/Columbus). But alas, we don’t have enough cheap veterans. Oh well. Once Katz gets his new rink (which I bet is the reason for wanting to own the team) then he will start to care about winning (other than paying lip service to the idea) and then we will start to see people being held accountable for this shit-show.
Until then, enjoy the games!
P.S. The world juniors have been fantastic. Anyone else turn from the Canada-USA game on new years eve to the Oil game and find it was slooooooooooooooooooooow.
