Actually, most of us Edmontonians are fairly happy at the moment; As of today the Oilers broke a franchise record for most consecutive road wins (with five) after going 5 for 5 on their recent road trip. And, as a nice added bonus, the Oilers are on the biggest winning streak of the entire league at the moment.
Plus, Penner's play is fantastic this season... Currently he has 18 goals, 36 points, in 32 games. The guy is on pace for a solid 46 goals, and 92 points... which quite frankly, is ridiculous. At this rate, i would say he has a shot at the Olympics. Hell, the guy leads all canadians (well, tied with Bouwmeester) in at 13.
That being said, i suppose it is hard to not be riding your high horse after your team overcomes a 3 goal deficit and wins... let alone when you break a franchise record like that.
.... Now all we need is Hemsky.
