Sacamano: Corporate Shill

Heads up Oilers fans.

Today's dead tree edition of Mirtle's own Globe and Mail has a terrific four page pullout on the Oilers. Maki has a great feature on Roloson (did anyone else know Roli has secret eye exercises?), Duhatschek takes on Horcoff, Shoalts talks Whitney, and Wharnsby has a nice one on the Orbs of Power. There is also a nice feature on Team Building with a little blurb on all of the players and how they were acquired by the Oilers. Did anyone else remember that Horc was selected 99th overall by the Oilers. 99th!

Comments:

In fairness, Horc played pretty much like a 99th-overall pick until last year in the SEL.
 


Oh I'm not disputing that -- I was thinking more about the significance of the number 99 . . .
 


Check back at our blog in an hour. Avi also has a point about the number 99.
 


If you examine the Roloson page very carefully, it's even possible to discern a mudcrutch contribution/idea.
 


sac - I don't get the big deal about 99?

????
 


I'll pay you later Sac.

Wow Cosh. That's spoken like a guy that just started watching the Oilers this year.

Unless of course you're a believer in the anomalous strength of the 99th overall pick.
