Tend The Farm ~ 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. - page 2

Some Up, Some Down, A Day Of Roster Changes

Some Up, Some Down, A Day Of Roster Changes

As the Oklahoma City Barons march towards their home opener on Friday evening at 7:00pm, the whirling carousel of change again strikes warmly on the great plains. Announced today were a couple of things. Richard Bachman has been recalled to Edmonton to replace the groin-injured Viktor Fasth. Also recalled is winger Steve Pinizzotto, whom the Oilers continue to love out of training camp. In return the Barons receive Bogdan Yakimov after a brief stint (one game) against LA. Meanwhile, Frans Tuohimaa is headed to Oklahoma City to backup NOW starting goaltender Laurent Brossoit.

The early reports are that Fasth, Nugent-Hopkins, and Eberle are ailing. Not a good threesome to be gimpy. Three games in, three losses (but an OT no-one-loses point), and suddenly three injuries. This is not good news, no it isn’t.

Richard Bachman To Replace Injured Viktor Fasth In Edmonton

Richard Bachman To Replace Injured Viktor Fasth In Edmonton

The Edmonton Oilers are three games in. Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins missed last night’s game with undisclosed ailments. Viktor Fasth was plauged by a groin injury after playing through 15:00, giving up three goals on eleven shots. It’s not the start the Oilers wanted nor is it helpful to OKC, but in the end, we remember there is depth on the farm. That’s good news.

The OKC Barons have played one single game to date in the 14-15 minor league campaign. The lopsided scheduling tactics of a “weekend” league have drug the Barons to San Antonio for game one, then back home nearly a full week later to play a Friday/Saturday two-some. They’ll face Texas on Friday, and San Antonio on Saturday. With the upcoming games comes a deep breathe, and kind words (although forced) for the Oilers. It appears that in Fasth’s absence (currently listed as day-to-day) that Richard Bachman is the candidate to replace him in the NHL roster.

On The Other Yak & The Only Klefbom

On The Other Yak & The Only Klefbom

Recently (yesterday to be precise, Watson) the Edmonton Oilers called upon the services of Bogdan Yakimov while also sending defender Oscar Klefbom to the Oklahoma City Barons. Both moves are rather interesting, but neither are surprising.

First up, Yakimov. We here in Oklahoma City haven’t had a chance to see him play gameday minutes. With the loss at San Antonio on Saturday where he centered a third line with Moroz and Pinizzotto his wingers. He had the game’s first penalty for holding a stick, but it neither cost his team nor felt overtly awful. It very well could have been a non-call, but why make something of nothing or nothing of something or something, maybe nothing. Regardless, Yakimov looked impressive in the minutes he played which weren’t entirely low.

Workin’ For The Weekend: Oklahoma City at San Antonio “Oblivious”

Workin’ For The Weekend: Oklahoma City at San Antonio “Oblivious”

The 1980’s seem to be a decade easy to cast stones upon, and perhaps rightfully so. The economical “high times” were easily perceived through Westerners eyes as good, and fine, and happy. Meanwhile the rest of the world struggled, and struggled mightily. Often individuals point…
