While you’re patiently waiting for tonight’s action against St. Louis, here are some tasty Big Kahuna Burgers to whet your appetite.

Cult of Hockey (Peter Adler) – Czech Fans banned from rink for racist comments against Wayne Simmonds of the Flyers - Eight idiot fans earned a year-long ban from attending the rink in Liberec, Czech Republic after hurling racial insults at Wayne Simmonds.  Simmonds played with the White Tigers of the Czech Extralague during the lockout.

The Oil Drop – Dustin Penner and the Oilers Are a Perfect Short Term Fit - No doubt.  Put that guy on the third line and wind him up.  No secret it hasn’t been all sunshine, lollipops and rainbows during his time with the LA Kings (except for that whole Stanley Cup thing).  As of this sentence, the Oilers are 28th overall in goals scored.    Just a few years back he was popping 30 goals in for the Oilers.  Tell that 6’4″ 240 pound bastard we miss him.

Oil Acumen – Trade Targets: Keith Yandle –  The Coyotes have locked up Oliver Ekman-Larsson for the next six years.  The Oilers can now put their next first round pick in the box with a top prospect and send it via post to Phoenix for Yandle, a number one defenceman.  That’s how this works, right?

Black Dog Hates Skunks – Our Children Is Learning – Win some, lose some, and everybody sees another day.  Oh, and the Oilers are still within breathing distance of the second season.

Copper and Blue (Dawgbone98) Oilers Sign Milan…errrr…Travis Ewanyk – Edmonton’s third round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft has been signed to an entry level deal.  An ideal projection for Ewanyk is that he’ll be a bottom six checking guy.  Have the Oilers made a wise investment, or have they invested on another deal that will take years to see a possible return?
