Oilers Fan Christmas Wish List



This is an Oilers fan Christmas wish list for what I want to see in the new year of 2009.

Dream List

  • a Zach Stortini NHL hat trick

  • Sam Gagner demoted to Springfield

  • Jeff Drouin-DesLauriers handed the #1 job

  • Kelly Buchberger and the whole boys club fired (retaining Pendergast, MacGregor, and Huddy)

  • Mark Messier hired as head coach

  • Pat Quinn hired as GM

  • Denis Grebeshkov develops into the next Paul Coffey and is signed to a 12 year contract

  • Ladislav Smid takes over the shut down role and Steve Staios is dealt for a bag of pucks and Tim Hortons gift cards

  • Dwayne Roloson takes over Pete Peeter's job and his first lesson involves batting lessons

  • Ethan Moreau is traded behalf of a request of Jayman Master Builders and Ales Hemsky replaces him as captain

  • Oilers give up on season and go for Jonathan Tavares


  • Realistic Wish List

  • Oilers sign a sniper (Kovalchuk?) in the off-season

  • the 3 goalie problem is dealt with as Garon is dealt for a prospect and draft pick(s)

  • Mathieu Roy is dumped

  • Erik Cole regains scoring touch and is signed long term by Oilers

  • Andrew Cogliano is given his due

  • Robert Nilsson is traded

  • Robbie Schremp wins the shootout drill at the skills competition (if he's there at all, that is)


  • "Please avoid at all costs" wish list

  • do not trade Ladislav Smid

  • do not trade Denis Grebeshkov

  • do not trade Theo Peckham

  • do not resign Dwayne Roloson

  • do not make big deals on the trade deadline for a team that won't make a run


  • Happy Holidays

    Hello there,
    I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
    Please let me know if you would be interested.

    Your's in Hoops,
    Peter Robert Casey
