Rangers Are No Longer Oilers

Happy Thanksgiving!
Here’s a quick one. Then I have to go eat some turkey.
The MegaStars game was great, right?
Should Ranger Mark Messier and Ranger coach/GM Glen Sather have been there?
Nope. They have jobs. With the Rangers.

    The outdoor MegaStar game was a very cool idea and it’s easy to see why Sather and Messier wanted to participate, what with their strong Edmonton ties. But Sather and Messier are Rangers now. The time to repay debts to previous employers is retirement. Would Sather had given a player time off to go home for a reunion of former Dairy Queen employees? Of course not. Would it have sucked for either of them to have missed the game? Sure. But that’s why it sucks to have a job.
