Just one.

Lowetide – Here Comes The Sun – The Oilers are now buying?  Maybe.  Let’s see if they can pick up some of the things on Lowetide’s grocery list.  Also, Shawn Horcoff is a good thing.  Ain’t it true, he’s a monumental good thing.

Oil Drop – Oilers ink Smid to a 4 year / $14M deal – Oilers keep a cornerstone of their defence who says he really likes playing in Edmonton.  I like the term, and the price isn’t outrageous.  Smid is said to have celebrated his contract by taking several pucks to the chest region.

MC79 – Smid Signed, Whitney Next? – As I hand out congratulations to the team for hitting the Smid deal pretty well, are they about to offer an extension Ryan Whitney?  Will Boston still come calling?

Scott Reynolds / Copper and Blue – Kale Kessy Comparables – Have any players like Kale Kessy made an impact on an NHL team?  A few.  Depending on how the dice shake out, he could be Marcus Foligno, or Cam Janssen.

Artful Puck – Kirill Tulupov:  This Season and the Arizona Sundogs – Patricia Teter of Artful Puck chats up OKC fan favourite Kirill Tulupov, now a member in the Phoenix Coyotes orgainzation with the Arizona Sundogs.

Everybody remain quiet.  I don’t think the Blues know we’re right behind them.
