This is Anton Chigurh.
Okay, well it's not. This was my friend Sam's costume for Halloween. In all honesty though, he looks a lot more like Zack Stortini than the main hellraiser from the 2007 blockbuster No Country for Old Men.
Now, about Carolina.
Well folks, we all knew it was coming.
The road trip from hell. It starts with a two-game weekend and then another back-to-back set in CBJ and PIT later in the week.
If there's a good time to find some team chemistry, it would be now. Or soon. If there's a good time to fall farther behind in the standings, this would also be an ideal time - for the other teams in the NW division. Luckily for us Joni Pitkanen is injured so for the time being we can still brag about Erik Cole being the steal of the trade. Hopefully, for our sake, he plays the way he did in Vancouver and against Boston. Even better, he should rip it up against his old team.
One can hope.
Some other former Oiler players and draft picks have also made their way onto the Carolina squad. Dwight Helminen (as mentioned on Lowetide), Sergei Samsonov, and Dan LaCouture. Ray Whitney was already there when we played them in the SCF in 2006. Last season we played Carolina in Edmonton and we destroyed them. Hopefully, we can go into their rink and do the same thing again.
