The new conference alignment allows us to have the best rivalry in the draft. (Trail vs. Edmonton). This would enable the second-best rivalry in the draft (Las Vegas vs. Vancouver). We have to get these two teams in the same division. And it's always nice to have my old friend HFF in my division. (Natural rivalry with myself, pit and HFF).

Trails gotta make the playoffs before there's a rivalry, and with that powderpuff line-up, I don't know.....?

But thanks GBG, and BM67 for selecting for me this weekend. Jason Smith is a current favourite and a very welcome addition to the lineup. I think Smith alone has more grit in himself than the entire Trail line-up.

Ian Turnbull is an old favourite, he was a strong #2 with Salming in his day and will be looked upon as a powerplay specialist on the Oil. In his prime between 76 to 81 he averaged over 60 ppg and just under 1 ppg average in the playoffs.

Not sure why Al Secord doesn't get more love here but he will with the Oil faithful, twice a 40 goal scorer, once a 50 goal scorer and over 2000 pims in his career and not cheap pims like that Dale whatshisname. It won't take Secord long to endear himself to the Oil fans when he introduces himself to Curt Fraser in the first preseason game with Trail.
