Old News Is Still News

There are several benefits for writing for someone like Paul. The biggest has to be that since we write online and not for a newspaper with their 9pm and 11pm deadlines we can share news, even old news, and opinions when it works for us. 

And so even though the draft was a couple of weeks ago I can still at this point write up something on the players that the Oilers took. This is especially helpful since I am on vacation but I know that the dog days are summer can seem especially long and hockeyless. The Oilers may have selected these players in late June, but they are no less exciting, interesting or Oilers by mid July. I hope that you are enjoying your summer and that you might get some enjoyment from the odd articles that will be popping up in the next two weeks.

About Oil Patch

Lisa McRitchie is a fairly new writer, online at least, but makes up for inexperience with passion for the game of hockey and memories of Mrs. Leskiw’s English AP class; who knew they would pay off one day.

Oil Patch focuses on the Edmonton Oilers, the Edmonton Oil Kings, The Oklahoma City Barons and Team Canada Hockey with game coverage, news updates, speculation and interviews.

Although the Oilers have had a difficult past decade… or three, here at Oil Patch, the future looks bright.
