Are you really that concerned about the out-come? Messier isn't playing for the Oilers so Gretzky can win... hell, to be brutally honest, the Oilers don't need Messier on this team to embarass the Canadiens alumni...
And that isn't a shot at the habs, but if you look at alot of that team, alot of the guys are either in their 50's, or who in their NHL careers were more of an allround player.... whereas most of the Oilers were offensive minded. And in what promises to be a very allstar like game (no defense), the Oilers players are better suited to it. That being said, I highly doubt either team would want to embarass the other, and you will probably see a game like 9-7 or something like that.
Just enjoy watching 2 teams who have had different, but ultimately successful pasts.
And as for the Oilers having no tradition... take your head out of your ass. They may only have 25 years in the NHL, but hockey has been in Alberta and Edmonton for a very long time.
God, is your team that bad you need to cry about an alumni game?
