Intranuovo is a 30 year old, 5'8 stud forward who potted 20 goals with the Essen Mosquitoes in 2001-02. He's gone covert in 2002-03, undoubtedly honing his hockey skills in some hidden location in order to burst onto the scene in 2003-04. Say goodbye to any scoring concerns you may have had!
Meanwhile, Zhurik is the answer to the Oilers depth concerns on the blue line. This 6'3 defenseman from Belarus projects to be on the top line with Brewer. The 28 year old played for CSKA Moscow last year and was able to score 2 goals and add 51 PIMs.
Anyway, I just wanted to set the record straight. Lowe will NOT be leaving these two integral pieces unprotected, I can tell you that much. I've already ordered my "Intranuovo" Oilers jersey, and suggest you do the same before they're all sold out!
Holy cow...this sure made me laugh! Good thing I wasn't drinking milk at the time because it would have been coming out my nose.
