The Oilers have started their aggressive campaign to get season seat holders to renew their tickets. We were reminded about every five minutes on the big screen at last night's game. Shawn Horcoff, Jarret Stoll and Paul Coffey personally feel that you should renew your seats. From the bottom of their hearts. It's extremely poor timing to start the campaign now. That being said, no amount of losses or injuries would prevent my season ticket partner from renewing our tickets. Deadline for renewal is March 14th.
The adorable Jan Hejda and the Macedonian machine, Steve Staios suffered shoulder and knee injuries respectively against the Lightning, which has opened the door for yet another prospect. The Oilers have called up Bryan Young from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Young is the Oilers' last available signed professional blueliner. He's no Tom Gilbert, but Bryan Young still has an appealing boyish charm to him. Sebastien Bisaillon is rumoured to be called up soon as well. And just because we spent an entire weekend making it, here's a tribute video for a former Oilers d-man.
Kyle Brodziak played in his first regular season NHL game of the season last night and spent 15:15 on the ice, with 11 seconds PP time and 35 seconds short-handed. Squee!
