Oilers fans are among the most passionate in the sport. As a consequence, we see both the best AND the worst fans in the NHL. I actually don't believe there is a more knowledgeable group of people.

Being out here in Western Canada, you would not believe the amount of support the Bruins get. Hated by few, but respected by most - and loved by more than you would expect. My job by necessity allows me to speak with randoms on a daily basis, and it's five to one in favor of the B's.

And when healthy, Ryan Whitney IS a legit #1 d-man. Not the best in the biz by any means. But legit. His toothpick skeleton is what holds him back.
