This Has to Be a Violation of NHL Policy Right?

I mean, I get that cocaine is always at a premium in LA, but I’d think the Kings players would have their own dealers at this point.

Funzo: cause its gotta be tough to find snow in Edmonton. Well, not real snow. You know what I mean.

Panthers Defenseman Knocks Out His Own Teammate

On Monday when the Edmonton Oilers took on the Florida Panthers, late in the second period, Oilers center Robert Nilsson glided up the ice, the only problem was that the Panthers’ Bryan Allen had him dead-to-rights in his sights.

Allen came flying in to check Nilsson somewhere into the next decade except, with a nifty spin-move Nilsson avoided the hit. All that energy had to go somewhere though and unable to stop himself in time, Allen instead slammed into his own teammate, Gregory Campbell, knocking Campbell out cold. Oops!

I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to take your teammates out of the game. I mean, I’m only a novice at hockey, but that seems counterproductive…

Edmonton Needs New Entertainment Options

With the nightlife scene stagnant in Edmonton, fans organized a rally pleading for Oilers coach Craig MacTavish’s dismissal. Over 8,800 people belong to the group on Facebook, but when media first showed up for the rally it numbered a mere 10 people. Fans are upset that the team has lost 6 of their last 7, pushing their already precarious playoff hopes further away. MacTavish’s job for now though, is safe, team owner Darly Katz delivered the clearest possible message of confidence; he sent a text message to the Bob Stauffer, the team’s radio analyst to give to MacTavish reading “MacT is not going anywhere.”

I feel warm and tingly.

We Won! Want To Do Me?

During the 2006 NHL playoffs Edmonton fans went wild as the Oilers improbably getting all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Fans were celebrating, and rioting, in the streets leading to multiple arrests. Amid the hullabaloo was Theresa Simone Schneider, 55, who was arrested for soliciting sex from an undercover police officer. Twice.

Showing how swift the Canadian judicial system moves, the court finally held her hearing where she plead guilty to two counts of communicating for the purpose of prostitution and one count of failing to appear in court. During the proceedings the court heard how Schneider twice made an offer, first on April 13, 2006, and again on May 26, 2006 to perform a sex act for money to an undercover police officer.

Defense lawyer Warren Smith told court his client admits making the illegal propositions, but said she got “carried away” due to the “festive air” on the street as a result of the Oilers unexpected success during the 2006 playoffs.

Smith added Schneider had been drinking at the time.

Judge James Wheatley accepted the guilty plea and went along with a joint submission for a $700 fine.

If there is anything that says true hockey fan more than a 55 year old woman offering to blow you to celebrate the Oilers winning a hockey game, I don’t know what it is. Seeing that the Oilers are currently in 10th place, it seems that Ms. Schneider may need a different team to celebrate during this year’s playoffs.
