Studly Wonderbomb has a change of heart? Too bad, says Tambellini.

Ahh, shit guys, I was only kidding...

'Ahh, shit guys, I was only kidding...'

Taken from TSN:

The 34-year old went public with his criticism of the team back in April and demanded a trade, stating that he felt as though he had been mistreated by the organization by being forced to play before he had completely recovered from a shoulder injury. When the Oilers found no takers for their disgruntled defenceman either through waivers or a trade, it seemed as though the two-sides were headed towards a very nasty and very public divorce.

It appears that time has healed at least some of those wounds as Souray was back on the ice at the Rexall Centre Monday, skating with teammates for the first time since sounding off. His stance also seems to have softened somewhat since making his initial demands.

“Things that I said, that’s five months ago,” Souray told TSN. “We are in a completely different spot now and there is a lot of optimism.”

The 2nd annual Putting On The Foil pool is about to kick off, folks. Spots are limited (12… 14?). Anyone is welcome to join, although because I like to know whose ass I’m kicking, slight priority will be given to regulars of the foil and people who were in last year’s pool. But don’t let that deter you from signing up though, if you are a lurker.

Gr8one did a fantastic job of organizing it last year, and has volunteered (or been voluntold?) to do it again this year. Thanks, gr8one! If it’s similar to last years, expect it to be a Yahoo pool involving a draft. Once the season kicks off, you’ll have to set your lineups for games each night. Sounds like a lot of work, but you can do it all a bit in advance. My recommendation is to pick one night a week, do the whole week at once, and then tweak your lineup as needed each night. You will be able to perform trades with other GMs as well as waive and pick up players on waivers. Last year was a lot of fun, but more so for me, and not for all you sissies that lost. *flexxx*

Soo, how do you join?

Well, feel free to post a comment in here if you like, but to join:

Send an e-mail to contact@puttingonthefoil.com (<- click link) with your screen name on Putting on the Foil and stating that you would like to join the pool (both are important) and I will then forward it off to gr8one. Simple as that. Some of you have expressed interest in other threads, but I need an e-mail from you because that e-mail address will be what gr8one uses for his invites.
