Time for another article that focuses on the “Edmonton” part of the “Edmonton Oilers Hockey Blog” that you see on the heading of the site. If you are looking to read about the calculated odds of the Oilers shooting out of 14th place in the West read on.
You have been warned.

The Sharks are a good hockey team, I think.

To say that November was a rough month would be an understatement. The "bounces" that were going the Leafs' way for most of the calendar year began to dry up, every offensive centre in the lineup found a way to disappear in some way shape or form, and the Leafs squeaked away with just two regulation wins and eleven points in thirteen games. To remain a playoff team, the Leafs absolutely need to have a strong December. The issue? Their opponents are strong, including tonight's San Jose Sharks. It was a battle of the best volume shooters against one of the worst shot bleeders, and at times it showed, ultimately leading to a 4-2 win for the Sharks.

There are good hockey teams, and then there are the San Jose Sharks. For those of you unfamiliar with the Western Conference, the Sharks this season have cut through the rest of the West the same way the West has cut through the East. The Pacific Division is the strongest in hockey, and the Sharks have laid waste to it, with a 9-1-2 record.
The Sharks are in Toronto tonight, riding a five-game win streak (although two of those were shootouts) against a visibly struggling Maple Leafs team. The good news is that both Cody Franson and Jay McClement are available to Randy Carlyle to play tonight, after Franson missed the game against the Canadiens and McClement was shaken up twice. The bad news is that Nazem Kadri will not play due to personal reasons. Out of respect for him we'll stray from reporting on what those reasons may be.

It's like Christmas, your birthday and April Fool's Day all wrapped up in one!
This year, you can give the gift of time.
And I don't mean a lousy wristwatch. I mean, they can't even be bothered to put a full day on a watch. Twelve hours, sheesh.
No, instead of a measly twelve hours, you can give out twelve months! That's like giving someone 365 watches. How generous is that?!!
