Oil On Whyte's Weekend Link Extravaganza

Welcome to Oil On Whyte’s Weekend Link Extravaganza.  The Extravaganza features links from around the Oilogosphere that are hand-picked by yours truly for your reading experience and pleasure.  Have you ever been experienced?  Well, I have.

Oilers Nation – Let’s Talk About Contraction (Jonathan Willis) – Let’s talk about contraction, bay-be, let’s talk about you, and me.  Jonathan Willis takes a look at the likelihood of eliminating a couple of teams.  How broke is the NHL?

mc79 – Hackathon 2.0 – Tyler Dellow looks at the ups and the downs of Edmonton’s recentHackathon contest.  If the Oilers play half a season in 2012-13, really, how valuable is that data?

Tend The Farm – Workin’ For The Weekend: Hello Texas, Total Eclipse Of The Heart – The Barons will cram three games into this weekend, and Neal waxes about a Bonnie Tyler evergreen.  Solid work all around.

Nugent-Hopkins Named  Captain For Canada In WJC – OKC Barons Official / Josh Evans – I’d like to point out that nothing in this story said the word “shoulder” or “shoulders”, so I’m just going to file the word “shoulders” into the black box in my brain.  Good thing I’ll never have to talk about shoulders again.

Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall Show Their Wares As Barons Cruise To 5-1 Win – Edmonton Journal / Bruce McCurdy – Expert Analysis with one of the Journal’s top hats (with video!), but here’s the short version  – Taylor Hall, good.  Jordan Eberle, good.  Justin Schultz, good.  Kinda makes you wish we had NHL hockey.

Everybody’s just like you, it’s true.

Everybody wants a good thing too.
