Hopefully there is a lot more of this comraderie in the Oilers future..
A while back, I had a conversation with fellow blogger Bobby Scribe from lakingsnews.com. He was asking me for information on Dustin Penner a month before the trade to learn more about him, which I provided.
Once the trade happened, Bobby got back in touch with me to return the favor on Teubert.

Happy Wednesday! And now, for the Monday Morning Standings…

Belle has been reassigned so that Smid can return to the lineup.
