Well,sort of a weekend extravaganza. What, with all this action of the OKC Barons training camp beginning and the latest meetings between the NHL and the NHLPA that accomplished pretty much nothing, we simply had to hold off until today for the weekend link extravaganza.
Here are some of this week’s links from around the ‘sphere. Taken with some breakfast sausage, I believe they’re more than palatable.
Artful Puck: Training Camp, Day One – If you’re not neck deep in junior hockey, yesterday was the first day of Barons training camp. Artful Puck has a round up and some photos of what unfolded on the ice on day one. Barons camp lasts until the 9th of October, when the Barons will travel to Cleveland to take on the Lake Erie Monsters.
Rob Ferguson : Photos – Check out Rob’s collection of Day One photos as well, including the still-strange photos of RNH and Eberle in OKC Barons gear. Better get used to it, at least for a while.
Tend The Farm: Predicting Defensive Pairs – The arrival of Justin Schultz sees a shift in who plays where. Join Neal as he delivers his predictions.
Oil Acumen : Damage Control – When team owner Daryl Katz bluffs about relocation, fans didn’t take it pretty well. Like a butter knife over a peanut butter sandwich, Katz tries to smooth it out.
The Copper and Blue (Benjamin Massey) : The Red Devils Lose… – Think Oilers fans have had it rough? Well, you’re right. It’s been rough. But maybe not quite as rough as the ’74 Pass Red Devils of the AJHL, who finished with a pretty terrible 3-56-1 record. Fire up the organ.
Oilers Nation (Jason Gregor) : A Loving Father – If you haven’t read this, I encourage you to drop what you’re doing for five minutes and go read a wonderful piece from a guy about his dad.
Take us out.
