The houseguest that won't leave. Just Beat It, Beat It, Beat It, Beat It...

Oilers brass has flown to Kelowna to meet with his royal highness to beg him to join the Oilers. Apparently, his highness has been on the horn today with Oilers management and players to see if perhaps Edmonton isn't as bad as every other player in the league thinks it is. This story has so many pathetic twists it makes me sick. I'll repeat that first line - the Oilers are flying to see his highness to beg him to accept a trade he's already 'slept on' (read: waited to see if the Rags would up their offer). Later tonight, we'll see if this cockroach has made his way out of our home yet.

In the meantime, we're out $2M on Neil's extension. Dude had better fight 15 times and pot 15 goals...but thanks for the huge 300k discount. We'll be sure to nominate you for the Mark Messier Leadership Award.
