Ethan Moreau, above, is last year's Hot Off champion. Did he acknowledge the great honour bestowed upon him? No. But he likes to entertain children. Robert Nilsson has been fairly impressive in the pre-season. He likes to bite his lip in concentration. Short of his daddy forcing a win, I don't think there's much Nilsson can do to take out Chompy.
I'm not sure why we're still calling these "days," since we're taking a more lackadaisical approach this year, but whatever. Day 5 it is. Today's matchup pits Horc against JFJ. What turns you on more: husky eyes, or punches to the face? Vote over. Horcoff stares down the competition!
Hot Oil favorite Kyle Hot-Rodziak might be married now (if comment rumours are right) but that won't stop a girl from hopin'! He takes on another young guy who hasn't cracked the Oilers roster, Andrew Cogliano. Each of the boys has a very different look, so this should be a great battle to start the day hot-off off.

VOTING OVER! SEXY KYLE MOVES ON TO THE NEXT ROUND!
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.
Who will be crowned the hottest Oiler EVAR: Stanley-Cup-ring-wearing player-coach Craig MacTavish, or ... recent captain Jason Smith. Seriously. How did Gator get past perma-stubbled and dreamy-eyed Paul Coffey? COME ON!
