Monty Steve's Leaving for the Circus: Hawks 6 vs Oilers 3

Khabby having flashbacks to what it was like in the UC before...

The Edmonton Oilers mimicking Penguins

                The Edmonton Oilers may not make the playoffs this year, but there is plenty of evidence to support the notion that the future is bright.

Crazy Horses

I will admit to a hockey fan's lifetime of playing favorites when it comes to choosing players to cheer for over the years. As a kid, I was a Bruins fan, so that meant the extra guys (Wayne Carleton, Ace Bailey, Gary Doak, Bill Speer) were guys I knew all about because lost causes, also rans and distant bells had their careers in the balance every shift. Since I can remember...
