Oilers Now Part Of The Goon Game

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

To goon or not to goon? That was the question.

The answer is Steve Smackintyre.

The Smack is back! After striking out twice here before, Steve MacIntyre — who proved conclusively that he not only can’t play the game, but that he can’t skate well enough to get close enough to most guys to even body check them — is back to flail and fail again....

The Oilers decision to go out and get a hired gun created a fully accredited national controversy on the detour of our game back to the Neanderthal days, if it ever, indeed, really was headed down a different road.

MacIntyre is the poster boy for a goon who can’t play.

In a span of 48 hours it probably illustrated why you may never get this out of the game.
