I have no idea why I wrote that headline. Who cares. For those of you that don't know how to click on the Oilers' website once in a while, tonight's final-final rookie game is being webcast on their site at 9PM MTN. Playing against the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference All-Stars, the Oilers' roster is so thin that the entire lineup could be cut and sent away on a bus to the minors immediately after the game. Well, I kid... somewhat (four will actually be cut after tonight). But I still think that if I'm going to watch another rookie game, it should at least include a Bryan Lerg dammit.
Either way, I'll have an eye on the game, between sips of Hot Toddy and flipped pages of Phil Esposito's "Thunder and Lightning," brought to me by the fine people of the Toronto Public Library.
