The goal pictured above is one of the great goals in Oilers' history and sits with the Marchant goal and the Pisani OT shortie in the holy trinity of Oiler goals post dynasty. And he scored it minutes after tying the game against the Wings and shortly after scoring the goal that put the Oilers in the playoffs and keyed that beautiful run.
Only Ryan Smyth in his second goround remains from the last good team the Oilers had. When he is gone (maybe later today) all we will have is a bunch of losing losers who lose. Hopefully this will change some day.
Good luck to Ales Hemsky. He deserved better and hopefully he will see success and good health over the remainder of his career. Thanks for the memories you beauty.
