A Fond Farewell


Hey folks, I’m leaving OilonWhyte.com. There I said it, I was going to post this yesterday but then I thought I couldn’t do it on the 25th anniversary of the Great One being traded. Not that I’m comparing myself to Gretzky or anything. If there were to a comparison, I would be more likely grouped at the bottom end of the spectrum with guys like Greg Goldberg from the Mighty Ducks movies.

Any how I wanted to thank Oil on Whyte editor Derek Stykalo (@mightystyk) for allowing me to post articles here for just about a year now. This is a very good site Derek and most of the credit goes to you for that. I would also like to thank Troy Martinson (@heavyoilcountry), Jonathan McKleod (@jonrmcleod) Ian Wood and most of all Jeff Chapman (@newwaveoil). They were the four that were here last year when I started a half assed attempt at blogging. Their encouragement, and the fact that some of you actually read the terrible put together words that I managed to get out of my head and on to paper (so to speak), is why I enjoy writing and talking about the Oilers so much.

With that, I am not going away anytime soon. I am still going to write (from now and then), but if you’ve been paying attention on twitter (@rustyknuckler) I’ve been dedicating a lot of time to the OilersRig podcast. The last episode can be heard here. I encourage all of you to check it out if you haven’t listened yet. It is something I really enjoy doing and want to dedicate what spare time I have to helping make that successful and something that the listeners look forward to. As for where I’m going to write, you will be finding out shortly.

Again thank you. And for the last time on OilonWhyte.Com;

Thanks For Reading.
