wow I can't believe I watched that whole video for nothing.

**** you.

nucks kill off their own PP cycling the puck and failing to take any chances, then get lucky opportunity before oilers get a chance to change off PKers. Go nucks!

This is too funny. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. All the Oil fans smashing the Flames for Bertuzzi when they picked him up spouting off all kinds of insults. Now they pick up perhaps the cheapest and definately the biggest dousche bag that has ever played the game and they are all for it. This my internet brethren is pure comedic gold.

How the **** is this guy still even mentioned in the same breath as the NHL? I mean, on top of being a piss poor fighter and just plain bad hockey player, he's got the whole Andrew Long baggage (after which he should have been done as a hockey player, IMO), and then the similar incident with Kesler.

Your internet must be broken, because none of them are happy about this.

Tamby must have liked what he saw when Jesse tried to break Kesler's face. I'm sure Hordichuk will KO him next time we play, but he'll probably have been waived by then.

Did you read the thread or did you just assume Oiler fans were happy about this?

I don't remember one happy person to be honest, but I only skimmed the thread on the Oiler board.

Not one of us in this thread are happy about it....


Most of us are just grasping at straws tring to find a reason for it.

The Flyers bounced him up and down, but he did complete the 25 games IIRC.

The fact that so many people on this board hate him makes me realize it was probably the right move.

We hate him because he is an asshat, not because he's some great honorable team player.

this guy will probably manage 10 minutes ice time total with the oilers while he is here so i wouldn't get too wrapped up in it. obviously he is just a stop-gap measure until Macintyre can return...

every time you think hes done for he winds up getting snatched up by another team so there must be something all these gm's like.

He should have been banned for life after attempting to decapitate Andrew Long.

haha, If your own fan base hate him, then its not good,.

Everyone hates Luongo and Crosby because they are the best at what they do. Do their own fans hate them? LOL

Good move by the Oilers. Class is the most overrated thing in hockey.

Then tell Souray the next time he fights his butt is going to be stapled to the bench. I've been converted into an enourmous Souray fan and I worry that his shoulder is going to pop out every single time he grabs someone. Still there had to be other options than Boulerice.

And no Canuck/Flames fans we are not having a parade or dance around the bonfire hoping that Regeher and Kesler are crosschecked in the face. Most of us can recognize that he's an absolutely useless hockey player but we need to see some silver lining to help us when we're forced to watch him wear the Oiler logo.

I just hope he doesn't break anyone's skull open or crush anyone's windpipe while in an Oilers' jersey.

I'm amongst those not really happy with the acquisition, I'd rather call up one of our guys from Springfield.

oh dear.

I don't get this move because the Oilers already have two pure goons playing in the AHL (Benson and some other guy...Bendfield?), plus they have Guillame Lefebvre, who was signed as a potential goon but can also actually play.

Bowl Of Rice sucks.
