Days of Summer

We're less than a month from training camp, I'm completely bored without any hockey or Oiler talk and there are two significant names that have yet to be signed by our Oilers: Cogliano and Gagner. They're restricted free agents and we've waited all summer for their signings. We still wait. It's actually been very quiet on the Gagner front from both sides. I'm confident it will get done but it is interesting that it's taking so long. My guess is they're arguing over term?

Staples mentioned the Capitals were interested in either our Souray (used to be known as Big Sexy) or the Canucks' Bieksa. The Oilers have been trying to trade or give-away Souray all summer. I'm a bit surprised by this but if the Oilers can dump him for a bag of pucks, I'd be quite happy. And once again, Cogliano's name is being thrown in the mix as well. His name gets added to every single trade rumor.

And one last shout out to Pisani who signed with the Hawks. He will forever be remembered in Edmonton for his play during the spring of 2006. One of my favorite moments, game 5 of the finals and a beautiful overtime goal.

Is this the Year?

Is this the year the Oilers get the number one overall draft pick? Is this the year Big Sexy leaves town? Is this the year Tambellini makes a trade? Is this the year that Moreau is traded for a bag of pucks? Is this the year the Oilers WIN?

Yes it's been a shit of a year so far. No wins. Winless in 2010. It actually has a nice ring to it. The Oilers have won only one game in their past 19. Carolina has finally past them, leaving the Oilers in the 30th spot. Yes folks, we are the worst team in the NHL. Yes, we're number one, we're number one!!

St. Louis is in town tonight and I have a decent feeling about tonight's game. St. Louis are only 5 pts out of the playoffs and have gone 6-3-1 in their last ten games but this is a doable game. Oilers have played better in the past week and the walking dead (Comrie and Brule) will suit up tonight. But do we want them to win? Heart vs head: win or dive? My heart says no bloody way will I cheer for my Oilers to lose but my head says that the Oilers need to rebuild and getting a high draft pick is essential. Heart vs head people. These are hard days in Oil Country.

Lastly, this is my first post on Oilers Jambalaya and I'd like to thank you for the invite to post on this blog.
