Top Story: The events in Boston have the continent riveted to the television and Twitter and it's a miserable reminder of our never-ending quest to end our own species.
It won't start anytime soon, but my hope for mankind is that one day we'll stop trying to destroy each other, that we'll stop living in the past, that we'll stop fearing the future, that we'll strive for greatness and that if we can't do any of that, we'll aim to leave everyone else alone to do so.
I like to read (okay, listen on my commute) Meditations, by Marcus Aurelius. One of my favorite meditations is this:
The passing minute is every man's equal possession but what has once gone by is not ours.
Maybe one day we'll all figure out what Aurelius knew 1800 years ago.
The Oilers are saying:
"I’ve put that aside. That’s why we have agents. We did have little conversation before the trade deadline. They made a quick back and forth, but it died off. There was an offer, but over two or three days we couldn’t find the middle ground."
--Mark Fistric, telling Jim Matheson that the Oilers offered him a contract extension prior to the trade deadline.
Steve Tambellini was so terrible.
Maybe one day the Oilers will be a winning team, organization and franchise.
The Opponent is saying:
"I love Denver. I love the boys. I love the coaching staff. They've been great to me. I can't ask for a better fit. You never know what you're going to get when signing as a free agent. For some guys, it never works for them. I'm pretty happy so far, and I like the way I'm playing so far."
Parenteau has been one of the best under-the-radar stories of the 2013 season. He's been attached to Matt Duchene's hip for most of the season, and he's been producing. Colorado has fallen apart this season (their defense is as good as Edmonton's), but Duchene, Parenteau and Jamie McGinn are finding remarkable success as a group.
Key matchup: Ryan O`Byrne has moved on to Toronto, but Hall has eaten the rest of the Avs' defense alive as well.has absolutely wrecked the Avs' defense this season. Unfortunately, noted pylon
