Cierny sounds like a good one. I imagine some Oilers staffer going from town to town, bundled up, running from local pup to pub asking questions about the local hero. Finally after 2 months, frostbitten and nearly hypothermic, he staggers up to the door of a cabin and knocks on the door, and an old Babushka comes out and welcomes him into the Cierny home.
More like Laforge would take the jersey into the back office and sign it himself.
55% of food for the first 2-3 games, 40% of merchandise
93 - Signed Jerseys by anyone who played for the Oilers, given personally by current players if winner chooses a current Oilers. Yes you can get a Pronger Jersey signed as per Pat Laforge himself. Winners chosen by random seat chooser for home opener.
83 - Pairs of gold tickets
64 - Photo sessions
19 Gifts of $1000 - to Charity of fans choice
14 - Lockroom tours for 10
4 - Sets of Season gold tickets was it?
2 - Fan Charter trips April 2-4th Calgary/Vancouver. Fly with the team on the charter stay in the same hotels etc.
I take it that the numbers of prizes and discounts are important to whom the Oilers think are the core going forward, or maybe fan favorites.
55% off food though. I'm not sold on Eager being long term, though last night was a good start.
While you all pick players, I wonder if they would accept something that most people probably dont appreciate at all...

Would be awesome if someone made a request like "Give me a steve tambellini jersey" or even "I want a signed Daryl Katz jersey", or how about "The most underappreciated people in hockey, the TV Cameramans"
