Richard Cloutier: Hordi Chucked; Leafs Raked; Smyth Miffed

A bunch of randoms for you tonight... Hordichuk Waived The Oilers placed Darcy Hordichuk on waivers on Monday. Considering a player is on waivers for a 24 hour period, Hordichuk has time to take 720 unnecessary penalties in the offensive zone while waiting to find out what happens to him. Why the Oilers re-signed this guy is anyone's guess. The 23-man roster thing is the...

Richard Cloutier: NHLPA Ends Player Starvation by Writing Some Cheques

Let Them Eat Steak The NHLPA reached deep on Saturday, and issued NHL players a $10,000 stipend, to help get them through the holiday season. $10,000 if you're Darcy Hordichuk is a lot of money. $10,000 if you're Sidney Crosby is fire starter. I shouldn't make jokes about the hard time players are going through. I mean, they've missed four pay-cheques at this...

Look for Oilers to Improve By Trades

The Oilers didn’t make anything remotely close to a splash on the first day of free agency. Instead the team chose three UFAs to re-sign in Ryan Smyth, Darcy Hordichuk and Jann Danis. But there is however the signing of Justin Schultz. So maybe they did make a splash afterall, even if it wasn’t for your typical proven, veteran, UFA player. There are a number of attractive UFA...

Staubitz, Hordichuk set to re-engage; more discipline this time?

I can't imagine there are hordes of people outside of Minnesota and Edmonton waiting with baited breath for Wednesday night's tilt between the Wild and the Oilers, especially when there are games on the evening's schedule that appear far more entertaining. But there's at least one really good reason to watch this one instead. No, it's not Ryan-Nugent Hopkins...

A big storyline tonight will be Brad Staubitz vs. Darcy Hordichuk, and whether there will be any fireworks after last week's clashes at the X.

Richard Cloutier: Too Much Tootoo

Jordan Tootoo is one annoying little hockey player. He dominated the Oilers/Predators game on Monday, making some of us Oiler fans wondering where we get ourselves one of those. I thought Darcy Hordichuk was brought in to be a jerk like Tootoo? Tootoo seemed like he was on the ice for 40 minutes of the game, and he did everything: Pass, shot, instigated, sang, danced, moved like...

Richard Cloutier: Monday Random Thoughts

Yuck...Monday morning. What a disgraceful day Monday is. I can't wait till Rebecca Black is all washed up, depressed, and has addiction issues. Then she can write a song called, "Monday", and it will be the new "Rehab". A few randoms for today regarding the Oilers and a few other teams: - Sounds like two injured Oilers, Cam Barker and Darcy Hordichuk...
