Welcome to Springfield

Springfield Edmonton: City of Champions

Hey, who said having the Falcons Oilers in town was a bad thing? When the veterans aren't able to deliver every night and the sophomores are slumping, what can kickstart a team better than a fresh injection of farm team phenoms?

Ryan Potulny looked great out there, skating around making plays and hitting people. Gilbert Brule's goal was great and Sam Gagner continues to turn his game around with the winning goal. Cogliano also looked good but was not rewarded. This turn of events does not bode well for a certain Robert Nilsson.

It's a testament to the versatility of the players (Pouliot, DesLauriers) in the system and the scouts in that the players from the farm can fit in so seamlessly with the current team, perhaps with the exception of Liam Reddox (who looks lost beside Penner and Horcoff). Furthermore, the recovery projects named Brule and Potulny, acquired in exchange for Syvret-a guy who was the odd man out, and the oft-injured Torres, have turned out not so bad after all.

Here's my fingers crossed that they can make a player out of Rob Schremp.
