The seven men from the rafters looked down upon these Oilers and declared their scorn. When Al looked down he spat blood declaring, "A huge part of this team's history has been burned to the ground. There is a willful forgetfulness here that will not be forgiven, so just as this team played in the WHA for seven years, so this team will spend seven years out of the playoffs as punishment."
Then Wayne looked down with disappointment declaring, "This team is supposed to be the reincarnation of the boys on the bus? Really? What disrespect for our legacy! What utter foolishness! For these audacious claims, a third of your team will be injured!"
Next Jari looked down and said, "I can't help but love this team, and the fans have endured so much punishment, so I will give them comfort by destroying the Stars! They will fall in the standings and out of the playoffs for a third straight season! Suomi!"
After this, Grant looked down and said, "The only thing this team did right was sign a clutch goalie, but their other moves have made him look like a fool! How can he prove himself when it really matters if the team doesn't ever play in important games! For treating a Stanley Cup winner with such contempt, all seven goalies in the organization will be made to struggle!"
As I sat and listened to these greats speak from the rafters of Rexall Place, I looked up and saw a maniacal Kevin Lowe looking down and lamenting, "Woe! Woe! Woe to the people who follow this team because of what the three men who have yet to speak have to say."
