Hello, and welcome to the brand new Oil On Whyte, Fansided’s Edmonton Oilers blog!
It’s an exciting time to be an Oilers fan. After four non-playoff seasons, the winds of change are clearly blowing through Edmonton. Here at OilOnWhyte.com, we aim to provide you with a passionate fan’s eye perspective of the Edmonton Oilers and the NHL in general.
There will definitely be talk about the salary cap, prospects, over and underachievers, Edmonton’s new AHL team – the Oklahoma City Barons, and there surely will be game-day updates. There will be a bit of general NHL dialogue. And, there’ll probably be some general zaniness.
Many of you already know the passion of the Oilers fans on the internet – in Edmonton, they’re collectively known as the Oilogosphere. Once you’re done getting your fix here, check out some of the links on the Blogroll on the right side of this page. These guys know their stuff to the Nth degree, and I’m humbled to have been linked to many of them.
I encourage healthy dialogue. A sports blog is only as useful as the readers of the site make it. That being said, chime away in the comments section. That’s what it’s there for.
Again, thanks for stopping in. Within the next few days, we’ll be in full swing.
Let’s have some fun, and GOILERS.
