2 guys they picked were picking their nose. Just sitting there and they put them on the jumbotron lol.

It's like somebody told them, "Hurry it up guys! We on;y have 10 sec left to pick the last 2!"

What a joke. Just like the Oilers play for the first. It did seem like the prizes went to season ticket holders only.
Any of the "random" promotions in Rexall that pertain to specific seats or rows are all pre-selected before the contest even occurs. I never get excited for those promotions or giveaways due to that fact.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't just imagining things, but they did the stupid video of the car race during a break and they said the second level was supposed to cheer for the blue car, lower= white and gallery=red. Anyways blue won and they gave the prize to the lower level

Anyone know if the 40% off merchandise is also available for those outside of Edmonton (online shopping from NHL or Oilers site)?

Nope, only at the rink.
They did have 15-20%off merch online a couple weeks ago though.

No, but the Oilers online shop is substantially cheaper than what's sold at Rexall. I don't know if they're on sale and it just doesn't say or what, but regular ticket price is 239.99 for a replica jersey with name at Rexall.

You know it just occurred to me. This was the issue with the first period the other night. The team must have seen the memo about Oiler's giveaways and misunderstood what they were suppose to do on their own zone.

It all makes sense now. I blame Horcoff.

Yeah, the giveaway for Ryan Whitney's number was 6 free goals. Unfortunately the Oilers gave them to the Sharks, in one period.

Ok thanks for the answers about the 40% off.
I just want a hat to keep me warm these days. Its like -20 in Toronto these days (with wind chill).

Does Edmonton ever get that cold?

I would suggest that -20 in TO feels a lot colder than -20 here, but you probably already know that.

I know the st holders will say they spend the most money and have the most dedication, so deserve it the most. it just seems a bit disingenuous to get fans excited about going to the game and having a chance to win, to have the team pander to their season ticket base instead.
I guess those complaints got heard. About half and half tonight with random fans and season ticket holders.

@EdmontonOilers: Four pairs of #Oilers Gold Season Seats for the rest of this year up for grabs! Brush up on your trivia and enter > http://t.co/wrZmBvID

The Oilers are giving away four pairs of season seats for the remainder of this season through the contest above i don't know if they are giving away all four through this contest or just a couple,

Anyway, does anyone want to share the answers to the trivia questions i don't know them all.

The questions are:
1.Who was the last Oilers player to get 100 points in a season?
2. What is the Oilers record for highest plus/minus in a season and who got it?
3.Who holds the Oilers NHL rookie record for most goals in a season?
4.How many Oilers have scored 50 or more goals in a season (as an Oiler)?

Much appreciated guys, i know the honourable thing to do is look them up but i thought some of you might know them

Question 4 is a bit tricky. Does Craig Simpson count (he spent time in Pittsburgh the year he potted 50)?

I don't know for sure but I have to think he would not count because he didn't get all 50 as an oiler and the question says as an oiler

2 is definitely Gretzky. I am pretty sure he has the NHL record for best +/- in a single season.

3 is Arnott.

Yes Arnott is correct as well as Gretzky who was +98 in the 1984-85 season that is not the nhl record though its third

I think I'd pick Gretzky so I could meet him. But if I was going to pick an obscure 80's Oiler it'd be Curt Brackenbury.
