From the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma comes Tend The Farm, where the little seedlings called Barons one day hope to blossom into full time Oilers -- one season at a time. Oh, and, farming the Oilers ain't easy.

Texas At Oklahoma City Game One (Gr)(M)umblings

Texas At Oklahoma City Game One (Gr)(M)umblings

Man, that was a close one. The Barons owned a two spot lead thanks to goals by Austin Fyten and Curtis Hamilton, and it seemed that they would again solve a problem like Cristopher Nilstorp. Then the tides shifted, Mike Hedden scored a pair including the overtime game winner, and the Barons lose game one at home in a quickened best-of-five first round.

My excitement quickly turned to fear as those three straight goals came pouring from the Texas-sized juggernaut that is offensive glory. A 2-0 lead felt nice, but once the game inched to a 2-1 lead it seemed impossible to see a scenario where the Oklahoma City Barons could protect a one goal lead with a lot of time on the clock. Of course they wouldn’t be able to, the defense faltered, and the offense seemed gobsmacked by the whole endeavor. The raucous start for Oklahoma City would, in the end, come petering to a halt. A 3-2 loss was afoot.

Following A Glennie Board, Darnell Nurse Fights

Following A Glennie Board, Darnell Nurse Fights

Again, like I begin every GIF post, I apologize for the quality of the minor league stream. Yes, we humble AHL followers pay for this, but in the end we all pay for this via eye exams and brain cramps. In the end, a GIF of Darnell Nurse fighting is on the bill today. I know, I know, why post this GIF, Neal? It is a milestone, I suppose, to have your first pro fight. The reality is that I could care less, wait maybe I could, but I know that somewhere, someone really wants to see this. Open the velvet rope…

Bill Scott Named Oilers Assistant GM, His Greatest Hits Remain (And They Really Were Great)

Bill Scott Named Oilers Assistant GM, His Greatest Hits Remain (And They Really Were Great)

In late summer 2010, Steve Tambellini made a pretty important hire. Regardless of how his time was spent wheeling and dealing with the Edmonton Oilers, Tambellini had huge success in the creation and supplemental healing of the team’s farm squad in the AHL. Gerber, Giroux, McDonald – all players brought in to backstop a minor league affiliate on the ropes – the success was instant. But of all the hires that season, including Todd Nelson, snatching an AHL front office guy was probably the most important.

Four years as AHL Hockey Ops Director, Bill Scott felt the desire to turn his attention towards team building. His organizational mind, and connections around the league would prove a huge asset to the Oilers farm team almost immediately. Scott, a Michigan State grad, was intelligent and considerate beyond his years. He was largely responsible for the Barons success in season one, and alongside Todd Nelson crafted one of the most potent minor league franchises in a four year span.

Announced over the weekend, Bill Scott will become the Edmonton Oilers new Assistant to the GM.
