A message for Oiler fans holding on to tickets valued at $150-$250 bucks for tonight’s Phoenix/Edmonton tilt – forget about selling them on Kijiji!
Decimated with injuries, fans sitting in the “Club Seats” tonight will actually be watching a lineup jam-packed with AHL players from Oklahoma City. Frankly, for the amount of money some of these fans paid for these NHL tickets, they could purchase a return ticket to OK City to watch the Barons – at least they’d be cheering for a team that’s actually in the play-off hunt!
This morning, the Oil recalled another threee players for tonight’s game at Rexall Place, including centres Chris Vande Velde and Ryan O’Marra and left winger Alexandre Giroux.
The Oiler faithful will be keeping a close eye on Vande Velde, who made a strong bid to make the pro team during Edmonton’s pre-season training camp.
In the meantime Oiler fans, chins up….sticks down.
