This is Reggie Leach. The Riverton Rifle. The white skates are courtesy that crazy bastard Charles Finley. The two players behind Leach in the photo are Gerry Pinder, who was a legendary Saskatoon Blade and then played for the Seals before heading to the WHA, and Norm Ferguson who was once a runner-up in the Calder Voting (Danny Grant won it that year).
The Edmonton Oilers need a shooter. A sniper. Someone who can shoot the damn puck from anywhere and be dangerous.
The shots per game leaders this past season in the NHL are all guys like Ovechkin and Zetterberg and they aren’t going anywhere.
The free agents (Hossa, Rolston) aren’t coming here either.
We’ve talked about Jokinen and Blake and Cammalleri all season, but I think there’s another guy out there who might fit the bill and based on his team’s post-season may be available.
