Oh Captain Where Art Thou?


Remember back in the day when we had two guys with the same (pronounced) last name? If you weren't an Oilers fan, you probably knew that one of them was the captain, but were probably wrong as to which one.

Captain Canada left at the trade deadline and now the Oilers' Captain is off to Philly. (Word on the street is that Smyth is returning to our conference - Colorado bound, gag.)

So, who steps in to fill the void?

Dare I say it? 2006's Hot-Oil Hot-Off winner? Ethan "Hot-Oil Hot-Off winner" Moreau?

Oh, by the way, Ol' Blue Eyes is gone. I'm terrified he will stop being consistently useless to the 4-goal-a-game wonder we thought we were getting.

I'll miss Smith, especially his "Where do you think you're going?" one arm slam downs on opponents. He sure gave his all every night.

Sounds like Lupul just wasn't going to work out here anyway. Maybe he will bloom in Philly, we'll see I guess.

Poor Roli will have to deal with Smyth on his doorstep again, though Smyth once said Roli was one player he didn't like to play against (TSN interview a few months ago).

Smith using his 'try me' stare to turtle opposing players is what I'll miss.

Kirsten said...

I will miss him lots. I have to say, I was surprised Sykora didn't come back.

I'm going to miss screaming GATOR!!!!!!!! everytime Smith throws a big hit. :(
I'm going to miss Sykora's super-cute accent and his consistent crotch grabbing/adjusting. :( :( :(
As for Lupul, I'm pissed off that I bought a Lupul jersey. I thought for sure Lowe would have given him one more season to prove that he can score 30 goals. He's gonna score score 48 goals with the Flyers now, playing on Briere's line.

uh, there should be only one 'score' in that sentence. My bad.

Damn Joffrey and those 'dreamy eyes'of his, suckered me into buying his jersey. It's going to go to ebay now. Fuck you Lupes!

Can you please buy a Petersen jersey? Then maybe he'll get traded too.

Sykora's gone? NOOOOOOO!

If I hear that UFA Toby Petersen has been offered anything from the Oilers...

God help us all.

How do you think I feel right now? I'm currently writing for the South Blankian Rolo-Blank.

uni said...

Thank you for that Lord Bob; it's 1:40 AM here and you just made me laugh out loud and wake up half the building.

I think there might have been a tear as well, but I'm not sure if that's just from the laughing.

How about no? If ever I see someone wearing a Petersen jersey I'ma beat their stupid ass.
He's a UFA, so he can't be traded.

Dear LORD Loxy I hope Toby rots in un-signed UFA hell for all our sakes.

lord bob - yeah, I couldn't help crackin a smile when I saw that too. Make it "All Roli, All the Time" and I promise to visit often.

And too bad about Sykora.
Thanks for the goals. May you find "hockey happiness" in Pitsburgh. (I wonder if the crotch grabbing incidents increases with how hockey happy he is?)
