TSN added "With Kings" to the title of the Lubo "I'm Disappointed" headline. Everyone can fricking rest easy. It's become more than apparent to me that it's time to stop the bickering over the slights from the Eastern media.
I swear, some folks live for every little chance to jump on what might be construed as a slight on Edmonton. By doing this, you only perpetuate the inferiority complex. Quit the whining about the Eastern media, we know they're not always objective with the Oilers but that's just the way it is. It reminds me of the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson jumping all over every little remark made by...well, you get the idea.
Let the Oilers do the talking by making signings and keeping the core together, that's the best way to shut up the likes of the TO media.
I agree with you man. I live in Edmonton and i think that we're overreacting. There is no "BIG" conspiracy in the media and the NHL against us. Get over it, it was probably a grammatical or technical error. If someone says "Oh, no one wants to pay in Edmonton" comment back by saying "It's pretty obvious that people want to play in Edmonton as there is 20 people currently on the roster and no one is stoning up when Calgary look like they are going to draft them."

a-historical dumb *****? i agree.
TSN is actually cheesy enough to create cute tongue-in-cheek headlines to manufacture controversy. "its just business for website hits." its also bush league. why did they even post it as some big disappointment anyhow? who the hell isnt disappointed when theyre traded other than Joe Thornton and Chris Pronger? Stoll and Greene said they were slightly disappointed too but Visnovsky's broken english and tone just sounded that much more dramatic to make it a skewed story. manufacturing/intensifying controversy from "objective" journalism is hilarious. "oh, our original title was a tad too skewed? we'll fix the flash file tomorrow. TEEHEE."
when i first seen the story title up there i was like "wuh oh, this doesnt sound good at all." as if Lubo was disappointed he was coming to a situation he didnt want to be in. typical non-objective, out of context journalism to latch readers in for the soap opera.
Perfectly stated. Compare the number of guys that have not wanted to play in Edmonton to those that have left the city crying or upset to be traded and have publicly vouched that it's a great place to live.
