This team has a little destiny to it

I don’t believe in destiny, it’s one of the things, like astrology, giving animals rights, and political correctness that I really don’t feel like believing in. But watching this Edmonton Oilers team is like watching a poorly written Disney Sports movie.I’ve always had a certain liking for the Edmonton Oilers. I was really upset to see Anson Carter join the New York Rangers in 2003, and it really hurt to see them miss the playoffs, and lose Adam Oates’s only chance for a cup last year, but this Edmonton Oilers team is making me excited to watch Canada’s team.

They have everything…

The youthfull presence, like Hemsky, and Stoll, the all Canadian good guys in Chris Pronger, Ryan Smyth, and Shawn Horcoff. The veterans with something to prove, Dwayne Roloson and Mike Peca, and the hot goaltender in Dwayne Roloson.

Not to mention, that Sergei Samsonov is the fastest guy I’ve seen in a long time. Ovechkin, Afinogenov, and him are making me scared of team Russia again!

And with the big physical presence of Chris Pronger, the fast forwards on the teams they’ll have to beat, the Selanne’s, the Briere’s, the Staal’s, will be scared shitless of taking a breakout pass out of their own zone.

But one thing they have to do next year, is make sure it’s not a fluke. Calgary stayed good, unlike the Canes, Capitals, and all the others because they continued to improve their team. The Ducks tried to imrpove it too, but Thomas, Oates, and Kariya are better then Fedorov and Prospal in my opinion.

And they must nail down Samsonov and Roloson for as long as they can.

Is anyone seeing a team of destiny in the Oilers? I know Jannety, OilEmpire, and Gretzkin do.

GO OILERS GO!!!!!!!!!!
