It's the most wonderful time of the year: Hot Oil Hot Off 2007

Ethan Moreau(not pictured above) puts his title on the line in the 2nd annual Hot Off. This year we've excluded the coaching staff, making room for some up-and-comers, and ensuring that MacT doesn't dominate everything but the final round (and it looks like he might win the historical hot off, so is it really fair?).

We're gonna do the comment-based voting again, because it's much more interesting - and less work for us. No anonymous!

Does anyone know how I would draw the brackets on my little MacBook? Either way, I've listed the first round below.

Kyle Brodziak vs, Andrew Cogliano

Sam Gagner vs. Mathieu Garon

Tom Gilbert vs. Denis Grebeshkov

Matt Greene vs. Ales Hemsky

Shawn Horcoff vs JF Jacques

Ethan Moreau vs.Robert Nilsson

Ryan O'Marra vs. Dustin Penner

Fernando Pisani vs. Joni Pitkanen

Marc Pouliot vs. Marty Reasoner

Dwayne Roloson vs. Mathieu Roy

Geoff Sanderson vs. Rob Schremp

Ladislav Smid vs. Steve Staios

Jarret Stoll vs Zack Stortini

Sheldon Souray vs. Dick Tarnstrom

Patrick Thoresen vs. Raffi Torres

Slava Trunkno vs. Igor Ulanov

This will be starting on Saturday once the Historical Hot Off wraps up. If you haven't voted yet, vote now!

Yesss! Roli's up against that troll Mathieu Roy in the first round!

Souray - Moreau should be a heart stopper for the ladies.

Yes, thank god you didn't pit Sheldon vs. Ethan in the 1st round. Sheldon could beat out last year's champ this year.

Also, Ulanov is NOT an Oiler anymore! He shouldn't be in the hot-off.

I don't know how you'd go about putting brackets together on your Mac, so I put one together in Visio.


I'll update it each round. I've emailed the pic to the gmail address on the main page, too.

Thanks Allan! I'll be posting it with the first match-up today. :)

Ulanov is an honorary Oiler. But I'm afraid it will hurt him in the competition. There might be a backlash.
