New General Manager of the Edmonton Oilers

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to take a quick moment before heading out tonight to introduce myself to you all as the new GM of the Edmonton Oilers. I was offered the position by team management just last night, and was happy to accept. It will be a big move from the beautiful weather of Victoria, BC, to the stone-cold winters of Alberta, but I will be sure to accept it with greater grace than would Ilya Bryzgalov.

It's a huge honour me for me to be playing such a huge role in such an historic organization. I realize that the challenges before the Oilers are great -- lots of decisions to make on ending contracts, sitting just outside of a play-off position, and with calls to be made on where we head in the future, but I'll do my best to not do something as catastrophic as making Ryan Smyth or Gretzky cry.

Some may question why a 25 year old law student has been selected to run one of the NHL's most well-known teams (well, at least in Alberta!), but hey... if Alex Anthopoulos can run the Jays, so, too, can I bring the Oilers back to glory.

I'll use the weekend to get up to speed, I believe I've been added to the Whatsapp discussions, and I look forward to getting to know you all and to working with you all. I think I'll have a lot of fun being part of such an active league, and I'll try and get my legs under me as soon as I can. Feel free to drop me a line at any time before I get up and running; as of now, I'm available for team duties!

A'ye, but long after a fire is extinguished, the oil remains.
