Christmas Special: Florida Panthers

Team Wishlist: Some fans and some love for the team. The team is doing pretty well. Erik Gudbranson is very exciting to watch. He's gritty, hits, and fights like a man. The team is built pretty well, but players like Scotty Upshall just aren't preforming to standards. So if some players step up, we can see more of this: which the fans like us like as well.. dont deny it. Its a great fight with the uppercuts.

Christmas Wishlist: Edmonton Oilers

Team Wishlist: Ryan Hugent-Hopkins (RHN) to win the Calder. This one is probably the easiest to do. RHN (we're calling him that. his full name is too much to write.) is still the team leader in points and he's only 18. He could have played for Canada at the World Juniors but it was kind of obvious that he won't be. He is the hands down favourite to win the Trophy this year. The team probably wishes right now is 2013. They have a nice young core of Hall, Eberle, and RHN. They don't really need to do much but let these players develop like how they should. The Oileres are doing well developing them, they always have, and I fully expect them to be a Stanley Cup contending team in just a few years. So I guess Santa can go easy on this one. He can borrow Paul Gaustad's right? You know children, sharing is caring!

Fan Wishlist: Develop Devan Dubnyk. He played well last year and this year lost the job to a hot goalie in Nikolai Khabibulin. He's doing well but he's gettin old. The Oilers are a hip, young team, but this old goalie is not letting the goalie of the future develop.
