After watching the Oilers fall in overtime to the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, I was all set to run a post this morning about Edmonton’s highly skilled yet vertically challenged crop of forwards. Boring story short, I got sidetracked with some shameless promotional stuff on my Raptors’ blog and the good boys at Oilers Nation beat me to the punch. Not that I’m surprised about that, they’re usually at the top of their game.
So I’m left to scramble this morning with some sort of relevant content. Sticking with my intended Oilers’ height theme, I give you a classic photo of Mark Messier and one of the greatest little men of all time:
Note the stubby brown one in the hands of the Moose, you don’t see those much anymore. You see that, see what I just did there?
