Oil On Whyte’s Weekend Link Extravaganza

One more week to work it out. Mandatory Credit: Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The weekend is upon us. Here’s some of what’s been going on in the ‘sphere and beyond.

What’s in the goodie bag?

Josh Rimer/NSS Radio TV- Interview with Zenon Konopka: Josh Rimer grabs Minnesota Wild forward Zenon Konopka and talks about the L word.  Konopka says that there’s reason to be concerned, but there’s still a good amount of time to get a deal hammered out if both sides can work together.  Interview starts just after the 35:00 minute mark.

Jesse Spector / Say Hello To The Real ‘New NHL’, and NHL2:  Could relegation work in the NHL?  Jesse Spector puts out a blueprint that looks good on paper.

RealOilFan / Contracts, Training Camp and a Season That May Not Happen:  Grant is a season ticket holder,  and like many of us would very much like to see some hockey.  Sooner than later.  Really, sooner.

Dmitry Chesnokov (Puck Daddy) / How KHL’s Lokomotiv was reborn, one year after plane crash tragedy:  Dmitry Chesnokov takes a look back at a day that none of us will ever forget, and how Lokomotiv was reborn.

Artful Puck – OKC Barons’ Bill Scott – Hockey In Oklahoma:  Artful Puck has a chat with Barons GM Bill Scott on life in the OKC and how much hockey has grown since the Barons have arrived.

Tend The Farm (NEAL!) – AHL on NBC? Maybe   If the league doesn’t work out a deal, could the AHL and NBC work out a deal?  It could be more likely than you think.

Oilers Nation / Lowetide : Hurry Sundown, Come On Winter - “Hockey is part of the fabric, like beer, Jill Hennessy, blue jeans and donair”.


The world lost Joe South this week.  Joe South had a pretty good streak of hits (for himself and others) in the 60s and 70s.

Here’s one he wrote for Billy Joe Royal in 1967 that would later become a hit for Deep Purple in ’68.
