If this doesn’t sound like the most fun thing in the whole wild world, you’re right. It wasn’t.
This was not fun to watch at all. Other than seeing Eberle rep the Oiler colours, this whole ‘selection’ process doesn’t do it for me.
(Skip to 05:25 to see Eberle picked by Team Chara)
If you turn on captions (that little CC button on the video), you get some hilarious transcriptions. For instance, when the term “Edmonton Oilers” is said, the words “other two dollars” are transcribed. Beta indeed. Even better is when Jordan Eberle’s name is announced en français.
Logan Couture was picked last, and for that dubious distinction he won a giant key that will go to a Honda CrossTour. Here’s a link to what a picture of a Honda CrossTour may look like. Sigh.
Skills competition is tomorrow, while the ASG is Sunday afternoon. Oilers are back in action Tuesday versus the Avalanche.
