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. If any of you guys have any questions on Teubert, please forward them off to me (in the comments is fine, or e-mail contact at thiswebsite (or use the contact us form under the help menu). Anyways, here is the information he’s provided so far, and it unfortunately adds to the uneasy feeling many are having about this trade. I had initially started things off by asking if Teubert was just a victim of the numbers game in L.A. (as they have a lot of D-talent there… both in the system, and in the NHL).

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have recalled defenceman Taylor Chorney and assigned defenceman Jeff Petry to Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League.
I really like Petry. He showed good poise most nights, but there some plays where he had problems with the puck. So, I can why he was sent back down.. but I’m not worried. It’ll be good to give Chorney another opportunity too, and maybe he might be better for the powerplay.

Today, the Oklahoma City Barons hosted a live interview with Edmonton Oilers’ President of Hockey Operations Kevin Lowe and Oklahoma City Barons owner Bob Funk Jr in which fans could submit their questions.

FYI, KL = Kevin Lowe, BF = Bob Funk Jr. Continue reading 'OKC Barons Live Chat with Kevin Lowe and Bob Funk Jr…'»
Oklahoma City Barons it is..
The Edmonton Oilers AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City has been named, and it is… *drum roll* … well you already know, since you saw the pic above, and since it’s been rumored for about a week or so now – Barons.
The Oklahoma City Barons start up in the 2010/2011 AHL Season in the Cox Covention Center which supports a pretty impressive 13,399 butts in chairs for hockey games.
Now, feel free to come to this site more often without your boss busting you for having some chick’s ass staring at him/her on your computer screen… at least for today.
Here is a shot of what the jersey will look like, from the Prodigal Hockey website:
