That was then; this is now bitches

Andrew Ladd collides with Dwayne Roloson

Andrew Ladd collides with Dwayne Roloson

That is the infamous moment when the Edmonton Oilers fans felt the wind knocked out of their ball sacs so hard we choked it up. Seriously Bergeron, push him away from the net you douche.

It’s been a grueling couple of seasons. First we saw Chris “thanks-for-nothing” Pronger leave town with the bastard children hot on his heels. Then we saw Spacek and Samsonov leave for payraises in hockeytowns not as awesome as Edmonton (but Montreal is pretty close). Then it was the departure of both Smyth and Smith, forever taking the confusion out of the 630 CHED broadcast (or so we hoped). At least the CBC announcers won’t refer to Jason Smith as Smitty anymore.

So yeah, it’s been a tough couple of years.

Reasons to get excited? Hell yeah.

Sure, we went 4-0 and then we lost 4 games in a row. Who gives a fuck? Where you watching the same Oilers team I was? Then you should be excited.

Three words: Cole, MacIntyre, and Garon

Cole represents the tough, exciting new hockey team we are building. With Moreau as captain, the additions of Penner, Souray, Brodziak, mean we are on the road to kicking ass and scoring goals.

MacIntyre represents the Oilers not taking shit from anyone. And seriously, just ask Ladislav Smid. He doesn’t take shit from anyone.

Garon is the best goaltender we’ve started the season with since Tommy Salo was in his prime. And as we all know people, that was a long ass time ago.

So lo and behold, we’re not off to the best start ever but it will be a damned exciting finish. So all you naysayers and fools out there chanting “trade Hemsky,” all I have to say is up yours and get on the bandwagon because we’re going to the playoffs in April!

You don’t consider Dwayne Roloson a legitimate starting goaltender?
