Coming Home?

Well, look who's been invited to the Oilers' training camp as an NHL pro try-out? Yes, former Oiler Anson Carter. A bit shocking is it not? Basically, he is a guy without a team. A man wandering in the desert, please sign me....someone sign me. Well Anson, let's see how you stack up against our endless stream of rookies and prospects. Good luck!

Update: Oilers officially unveil new jersey today. Yeah not good at all. Good point by Weaz....it could be a lot of worse. Hello Vancouver! But seriously, does the NHL not give a damn what fans like? You're alienating people and just pissing off the rest of us.

On the upside, the Joey Moss Cup went today and the Hemsky-Penner-Gagner line was clicking. Hemmer had a 5 pt game with a hat trick while the others also had four points. Nice to see. I still think Gagner does not make this team. I think he should (if he plays like today) but the Oilers have always been tentative and not aggressive when it comes to pushing their rookies. That can be good but can also be bad. I'll be at the pre-season game tomorrow so we'll see who plays and how much. It'll be nice to see the boys again! It was a long summer!

Update: I am soooooooooooooooo excited. Less than 5 hours until the pre-season starts. Is it sad that we're all going orgasmic over the pre-season? Hey, over 4 months of no hockey....we deserve some good orgasmic moments and hopefully this lasts longer than a commercial break! :)

Wow, I hadn't heard he was training with us. It's funny because a lot of Oiler forums were talking about why we wouldn't sign him and the general consensus was that because he left on bad terms, it would never happen. We'll see what happens. My wife would be happy though, she thinks his dreds are hot.

It's surprising. I'm not sure if I like this. I was really hoping to see the kids get a chance on this team but if he comes out, plays great and makes the team, he's taking one spot away from our kids who I think deserve a chance. But maybe we have too many rookies already so he could be good for the team??? I guess we'll see what happens. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's preseason game even more!

I took my boy to the Joey Moss cup. It was a good time, I too liked what I say on the Penner, Hemmer, and Gagner line. Horcs and Torres looked good too. I know I was preoccupied sometimes with my fidgiting 2 year old, but I didn't see Souray. Did he play?
