Don't You Wish This Guy Was Your Captain...

Waaaaaaait a minute! He already was!!!

It's no secret that I'm a HUGE Oilers fan. They play an exciting style of hockey and have for years. The thing I like the most about them is that they NEVER quit. And when they do lose, they are not afraid to show that they don't like it (if you know what I mean).

I wish our Thrashers had some of the same qualities. There is a reason the Oilers are still in the playoff hunt despite losing many key players to injury. There is a reason the Oilers are still in the playoff hunt despite digging themselves into such a huge hole that even only a couple of weeks ago the playoffs seemed out of sight. That reason? They don't give up!!! Raise your hand if you think the Thrashers have played the entire season without giving up... not all at once now!

The Oilers may not make the playoffs. But there is something to be said for how they play the game. Maybe the Thrashers can learn a few things by turning on the late game on their Center Ice package when they get home from being out shot 45-12.

As always, nobody does it better than TSN. This is a great article on the Oil. Check out the quotes from the players and see if anything the Thrashers have said this year even comes close to the things the Oilers players are saying. How could the Thrashers become more like the Oilers? Signing Jason Smith would be a good start.

For The Blueland Chronicle, I'm Big Shooter.
