Merry Christmas from “The Foil”

For all 4-ish of our female visitors.... sorry... lol

For all 4-ish of our female visitors.... sorry... lol

So the Oilers did up a new Christmas video in which they interviewed the players and asked who they’d want to be their Secret Santa, and what they would by in return for them.. here it is:

Just like last year, I figured I’d do up a wish list for some of the players of my own:


Andrew CoglianoAn Internet Explorer bookmark for this website here.
Devan Dubnyk – Several more starts.
Jordan Eberle – Ice time for the entire final minute of every game where we’re down by 1 goal.
Sam Gagner – Realization from fans that he can be the #1 center we hoped for.
Tom Gilbert – A better nickname than “fucking Gilbert”. He’s been pretty good these days… back to old form it would seem.
Taylor Hall – The Calder Trophy in June.
Ales HemskyWolverine exo-skeleton.
Shawn Horcoff – same thing as Hemsky… and for everyone to forget how much $$$ he makes.
J.F. Jacques – I’m sensing a trend here…
Ryan JonesTroy Polamalu’s hair shampoo.
Nikolai Khabibulin – only missed 6 games so far this year… keep that man hydrated with a gift of a water cooler. But not this one here.
Steve MacIntyre – Colton Orr’s attention, and a goaltender that doesn’t insult his hands.
Ryan O’Marra – A permanent shot at center here.
Linus Omark – A new rule by the NHL that deems spin-o-rama’s before penalty shots “totally NOT disrespectful for first year players in the league”.
Magnus Paajarvi – the promise of Anton Lander and Linus Omark as linemates next year.
Theo Peckham – A video sent to Don Cherry on how to pronounce his name. Although, I love “Teddy Pickman”.
Dustin Penner – A heart transplant from Liam Reddox’s to go with all of his own talent.
Liam Reddox – Dustin Penner’s size.
Ladislav Smid – A new grill.
Zack Stortini – A return to form of 2 years ago.
Jason Strudwick – A job that keeps him around the team past his playing years.. maybe sooner than later!
Ryan Whitney – A lump of goal (credit to Trogdor for his Principe-like whit)… OK, he finally scored, but he could use some more goals. You can never have too many.

Dan Ellis – Some self respect.
Steve Tambellini – A few post it notes with messages on them like “Faceoff guy”… “PKer”… and “Shutdown D-man”.
Oilers Octane – A gig in the states somewhere. Sorry girls.. nothing personal. I just think this is a silly gimmick we don’t need in Oil Country.
Craig MacTavish – A deal with the Devil(s). Although I love him on TSN.
Tom Renney – Whatever he wants… this guy has been patient in the face of disaster. Maybe he can get a couple of the things mentioned on Tambellini’s posted notes.
Paul Bissonnette (@BizNasty2point0 on Twitter) – A trophy for being one of the funniest guys on Twitter (if not the funniest) and being a great humanitarian while somehow simultaneous being a giant sleezebag.

Merry Christmas everybody… and we’ll see you back here on Boxing Day for the first real game of the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championships (Canada vs. Russia baby!) as well as the Oilers vs. Canucks game!!

    Merry Christmas everyone, hope you all have a great day. I know so far I have had a great day. Finally got my Hall T-shirt along with a really nice Oilers winter coat. They also said they would buy me a Hall or Eberle jersey, but wanted me to pick which one. So far so good! Have a great day everyone!

    Thanks for the…thought…I guess. I’ll have to burn that image out of my retinas somehow. Seriously though Merry Christmas.

  4. gr8one says:

    well you shouldn’t have stared at the image lustily, for so long to get it burned on to your retinas then!

    Alright everyone it’s braggin’ time… what did you get for Christmas?

    Of the main Oilers gear, I got a personalized license plate for my car that is an Oilers related number/words. I also got the gift I’ve been dying for, for forever… a Dave Brown retro Oilers jersey. Both of those came from, you guessed it, the g/f (OG77 for those that know her).

    Merry Christmas to the ladies and gentlemen of the Foil… and all that good stuff to the usual band of malcontents that might not fit in either of those categories…

    Racki – I didn’t get much Oilers stuff from the wife (damn ‘Nuck fans) but she did get me a new 37″ LCD to watch the games in my den… awesome…

    Hope everyone had a great Christmas! I hosted one side of the family for brunch and then the other side of the family for Christmas dinner so was going full out from 7am to midnight. Hope Santa was good to everyone!!

    Thanks for the Santa pic, boys…it actually looks like someone I know, so thanks for that image which I’m sure I’ll think of every time I see the poor man now.

    No Oiler goods for me, however, we finished our basement this fall and my hubby has had jersey frames made for 2 of his signed Hab jersey’s and lo and behold had one made for my now retired Roli Oiler jersey so that was a big Christmas surprise for me! Now there will be more Oiler colours in the basement to offset the Habs colours.

    All in all a good day, looking forward to relaxing today with some hockey to watch!
