The FIX is in



Well, this is it, the FIX is in. Oiler fix that is! Time to grab a drink, pop some popcorn, subscribe to your local cable station for Sportsnet ONE, BBQ steak, pull out the stats, sit down and read some good Oiler blogging. (the best articles can be found @oilersjambalaya.com....haha! just kidding)

This is the day, the on ice action begins. They practice (the rookies) today in Kelowna and begin their young stars rookie tourney tomorrow night. They also play, Tuesday and Wednesday night. All three games are being shown on www.edmontonoilers.com and Sunday nights game can be seen on Sportsnet West. The game times are 8:30pm.

There should be lots of excitement coming out of this years rookie tourney. It appears by twitter, and Internet blogging sites that the ones most anticipated to see are "Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Anton Lander, Curtis Hamilton, Tyler Bunz, Colten Teubert, Martin Marincin, Tyler Pitlick and David Musil." I would include "Ryan Martindale, Olivier Roy and Martin Gernat."

Regardless, it should be fun to see the boys in blue back in action. We now can go from discussing potential to actually seeing potential. While most years we discuss lots on who is competing for spots on the Oilers, this year it may be who is competing for spots on the Barons. Getting good playing time on the Barons roster will be just about as tough as getting on the Oilers roster for some.

I will be doing a post-game blog following each game in the tourney. Hopefully there will be lots of excitement and good quotes to give following each game. If you are unable to see the games or have story lines you want me to follow, email them to me at renaerts@shaw.ca or shoot them over to me on twitter @revingev.
