Another good one! Still love the "Flaming" hot/not! I'm SOOOO glad about Mikhnov... it was mentioned that he could be coming to North American this year in a earlier thread, right? If so I'm SOO excited, as I think he'll be alot better then a lot of people think he will be (doesn't get much attention being in Russia). Who knows, maybe he lights up the Elite league so much that the Oilers have to sign him and he comes over and becomes one of the Oilers top six! Him and Izzy on the left side would make for one hell of'a big left side!
Quality read Guy. You always give us good info, but now that you're settled in, your personality and style is really coming thru. This is obviously what you are meant to do.
The four-day stint will include an assortment of organized team activities directed at building team morale and male bonding. Events on the agenda include golfing, horseback riding, tennis and mountain biking.
This is excellent news. Team morale is one of those intangibles that is often overlooked or left in the hands of the "team leaders" only. Another positive sign of the adjustment in the focus of management.
Now that we know Luoma has a 2-way, I think it would be good for him to get used to NA play by starting in TO. And I am also looking forward to (hopefully) seeing Mikhnov next year.
Surprised he didn't announce it himself. There is another of GuyF's articles up (about Jasper).
Veeerrry Nice. Thanks, Guy. It is particularly interesting to hear about the European prospects who seem to disappear off the map in the daily media. When you break the MC story I will personally phone the sports editor at the Journal and demand that he hires you.

Thanks for posting a link Allan... I was out all evening so wasn't around when the article was posted. Glad everyone's enjoying it. Read the "Oiler Notes" thread for some other stuff that I omitted from this article. "Oiler Notes" might be a bit farther down the page though.
