Happy Asteroid Day! The ultimate fly-by happens during the noon hour today. I understand that the asteroid will borrow from George Bush tradition and ‘tip its wing’ as it passes New Orleans. I don’t expect much will happen, but if this thing hits please post something so I can look at it when the internet gets back up. I think Javier Bardem should play the asteroid in the movie.
Here’s some video of that ridiculous Russian meteroite
Man. When I was a kid, this kind of thing would have everyone at the Kingdom Hall counting it down! I hope nothing hits the air conditioner.
Ryan Jones is back soon, and that’ll mean too many wingers for not enough jobs. This is the point where Tom Renney lost Paajarvi, and that could happen again this season–Paajarvi and Teemy Hartikainen could be vulnerable.
Someone is going to get lost.
“I’d say the coach, the head of amateur scouting and two or three cornerstone players are the most important decisions for a GM.” -Jim Rutherford, Behind the Moves.
If you could choose only one current Oiler player–with the knowledge the others would be scattered throughout the NW division–who would you choose? It is not an easy question to answer. My answer today is Taylor Hall; however, the Nuge is 500 days younger and we’ve just seen a glimpse of Yakupov. Any of the #1′s could end up being the best player of the bunch. Then you’ve got Justin Schultz who is an exciting, wonderful young defenseman. Plus the Eberle, who many feel belongs at the very top of the young Oilers list.
What’s your list?
