Lennart Petrell what?

Yes yes, the Oilers signed some Finnish dude. I’ll address this situation and a couple other potential Oilers signings, and then I’ll move on to something a little more personal. Someone really got under my skin today and I think I need to address it, because it’s not my style to let some ******* punch […]

Lennart Petrell signs in Switzerland, ending experiment with Oilers

The Lennart Petrell experiment is officially over with the Edmonton Oilers as the big strong and uncreative Finnish forward has signed with Geneve-Servette of the Swiss league. The last time an Oilers castaway signed in the Swiss league Linus Omark led that league in scoring. It’s safe to say this will not be the case with Petrell 29. It always struck me that the big Finn’s...

Richard Cloutier: Lennart Petrell Wants to Be Your Sledgehammer

"I want to be your sledgehammer. Why don't you call my name?" You may have noticed at the trade deadline the Vancouver Canucks dealt the ridiculously talented Cody Hodgson for a skating fridge named Zack Kassian. Why? I mean, on paper, this looks like an awful deal for Vancouver. Kassian is gonna be their sledgehammer. Last season in the final round of the Stanley...

Lenny and the Jets

Oilers beat Jets 5-3 This was the Edmonton Oilers’ first trip to Winnipeg in 16 years, but it’s funny how some things remain the same. While the Jets put up a good fight, the Oilers saw scoring from all positions and made this look like an easy two points.   There was also an unexpected Finn who earned what looked to be an easy two points; Lennart Petrell. Petrell has never...

No Suspension for Lennart Petrell

The announcement that Edmonton Oilers’ winger Lennart Petrell would receive no further suspension following his hit Thursday night on Wild defenceman Marek Zidlicki was not made as a breaking news comment on TSN, ESPN or any other sports channel.

Lennart Petrell will not be suspended

I think this was a bad hit, I think Petrel should have been at least suspended because it was a dangerous hit, but I am not surprised that that hit didn't garner a suspension. I also said this last night. While Lennart Petrell's hit On Marek Zidlicky might not have appeared to be malicious, it's unnecessary, it's a dangerous hit and it's also a hit that...
