The Copper & Blue is the blogging world's Helen of Troy. First Jonathan Willis left to become a multi-site superstar at The Score! and Oilers Nation. Then Bruce McCurdy left to become an MSM star and writing mentor at The Edmonton Journal's Cult of Hockey. Now Lisa has landed at Kukla's Korner as Paul's Edmonton Oilers' writer. It's a new position at Kukla's and one perfectly suited to Lisa's cheerfully unique take on the Oilers and hockey in general.
I can't thank Lisa enough for her contributions to the site over the last year. Her positivity was some serious sunshine for Oilers' fans during a really dark year. Her interviews with prospects gave fans some hope for the future while watching another last-place team on the ice. Paul has landed himself a good one.
By the way, I love the McCurdy photobomb in the picture above.
