A Bryanbryoil Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!

First off, best of wishes to everyone, and take the time to enjoy being with your loved ones.

Here's my Oilers related list for Santa.

Christmas Wish #1-A new coach from outside of the organization not named Crawford.

Christmas Wish #2-A real opportunity for Rob Schremp, I'm talking a JF Jacques or Patrick Thoresen chance, not an Alexei Mikhnov chance.

Christmas Wish #3-Three offensive minded lines. That would play to our teams strengths. Bring in Brule and Schremp and roll with 3 skilled lines. We don't have much in terms of elite skill, but we have young skill in droves.

Christmas Wish #4-A healthy MacIntyre. Stortini has done a respectable job of late, but Big Mac brings great excitement in his limited minutes.

Christmas Wish #5-A healthy JF Jacques. It would be great to see the big man back on skates again after back surgery. Springfield could really use a player like him right now, and he could still prove to be a good bottom 6 NHLer.

Christmas Wish #6-Signs of life from Ryan O'Marra. 3 years after his draft, O'Marra is barely hanging onto his AHL job. Something has to change soon or he will be well on his way to bustville.

Christmas Wish #7-A more confident Taylor Chorney. Hopefully he will gain more confidence and improve his production as well as defensive play. He couldn't have had much worse of a start to his pro career at the AHL level to date.

Christmas Wish #8-A 2 goalie system in Edmonton. 3 is literally a crowd in this case, time to trim the herd in net by one. It's long overdue.

Christmas Wish #9-Souray being named the new Captain when a new coach arrives.

Christmas Wish #10-To see Oilers hockey again for the first time in what seems like an eternity.
