Oil on Fire

Well it looks like the Oilers are going to be doing a little better for themselves this season - What with the new addition of Chris Pronger from St.Louis Blues and Mike Peca from the N.Y Islanders being added to the roster. Also with talks of the possiblity of Eric Lindros I think Edmonton is going to be no laughing matter when it comes to this new season.

That being said, there are still a lot of other free agents availible and on the market for Edmonton to scoop up. We have to hope that Kevin Lowe will nab as many good players as he can now that Edmonton can "afford" to pay the players now.

Still available at forward are Ziggy Palffy, Paul Kariya, Teemu Selanne, Jozef Stumpel, Jason Allison, Eric Lindros, Ray Whitney, John LeClair, Peter Bondra, Anson Carter, Yanic Perreault and Andrew Brunette.

On defence, there's Roman Hamrlik, Glen Wesley, Scott Lachance, Marcus Ragnarsson, Murray Baron and Bryan Marchment.

In goal, there's Nikolai Khabibulin, clearly the top prize, as well as Curtis Joseph, Sean Burke, Roman Cechmanek, Arturs Irbe, Chris Osgood and Steve Shields.

Yeah I'm psyched and ready to go to a few games this season with all of these new and exciting additions.

I have also included a link to a Q&A with Chris Pronger which is pretty interesting. You can find that here.

Also check out the audio BLOG of Morley Scott located on the Oilers Website. In case you don't know who Morley Scott is, he is the Oilers' radio colour commentator, and has been for a million years now.

Here a couple columns down.
