YOU AINT GOT NOTHING

Welly. Welly. Welly. If our old friends at Bodog didn’t release the odds of winning the Stanley Cup now that the lockout has ended – a mere 145 months after it began. Good news in these parts up here in Edmonton, because it confirms something we already knew – The Oilers are awesome.
