Its going to be funny strange watching the Oilers for awhile because you just know Klowe is coming back from Oly knowing all about winning and that "I saw this club play this system and it really worked guys..."

Oh to be a fly on the wall in Oilers war room this week..

that said I like D first hockey, always have, which makes being a fan of this version of the Oilers quite difficult.
