Despite that the opposition overcame a two-goal deficit and went on to win in overtime, the McDavid faithful were undeterred in their belief that the Oilers' wunderkind would carry the team to the second round, and chants of, “McDavid in Five! The Dream is alive!™” were still being heard around the arena long after the game had ended. The same optimism was abundant at the Oilers’ head office as Stew MacDonald, Chief Commercial Officer, was absolutely gaga over finally having a little playoff revenue to spread around. “This is fantastic. This absolutely fantastic!” raved MacDonald. Not content with the revenue from a mere one game loss, before the night was out MacDonald had summoned his sales and marketing team for a brain-storming session on how to maximize the opportunity. As of press time “McDavid in Five! The Dream is Alive™” had been trademarked by the Oilers along with, “McDavid in Six, Pay More for our Tix!™” and, “McDavid in Seven! All thanks to Kevin!™” T-shirts bearing the slogans along with the Oilers and Sharks logos are now on sale wherever McDavid merchandise is sold; a solid $45.00 investment. At the next Oilers’ home game McDavid faithful can also look forward to Connor McNacho™ trays featuring exactly 97 chips and a collectable chip and cheese holder for $21.99; family size, 97oz Connor McCola™ collectable buckets for $59.99; premium Connor McParking™ within 970 feet of Rogers Place for $97.00; and, the ultimate accessory for the well-to-do, avant-garde McDavid superfan: a limited edition vial of Connor McStemcells™ for $979,797.97 straight from the Oilers’ First Pick Overall Development Lab (FPOD)™.
I swear these get better and better.

Well done Outrage.

And after your crowd anthem thing in 06 went viral across the continent, I was worried the Flames would try to do that in 07 playoffs. But they didn't. I remember feeling happy about both, it felt like a mutual subtle nod of respect between hated rivals to leave each of our cool playoff traditions alone and separate, I liked it. I distinctly remember thinking this.

Granted this is before the Katz years, I don't expect that guy to respect a single thing in his life.
Instead they tried to use Copper Kilometre as a cheesy ripoff of the Red Mile. E=NG.

It has been a long time for Oiler fans. Soon they will understand that the standard for officiating is different in the playoffs. Always has been, always will. Being over a decade it may take them some time to figure that out.

Jesus.

Even the local sports radio hosts are saying that it was not due to reffing, and they are huge Oiler apologists - the reffing was fine, the team took 4 offensive zone penalties.

Hell, McLellan himself said he only disagreed with one call.
