Well, the rookies have. And the coaching staff. I’m really hoping I’ll get to see coach, Craig MacTavish. He was my favorite Oiler back in the 80’s.We’re going to watch the practice on Sunday morning. You can bet the whole family will be dudded up in our jerseys, though sadly mine is now somewhat archaic with the trade of Captain, Jason Smith #21 to Philadelphia. It was a sad, sad day for me when that happened. Almost as sad as when we lost Game Seven.
The Official Blurb:
The Edmonton Oilers open their 2007-08 season next week as they travel north to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories for Rookie Camp. A total of 38 players (25 forwards, 10 defenceman and three goaltenders) will go through the paces on the ice at the Shorty Brown MultiPlex from Friday, September 7th to Sunday, September 9th.
