Oilers offer explanation to their fans

In a full-page newspaper advertisement in both Edmonton dailies, Patrick LaForge details a string of obstacles, including injuries and extended road trips, that hampered the Oilers’ performance this year. Under the headline, Proud to be in Oil Country, the letter from LaForge also defends Edmonton as a great place to play hockey.
Here's a look at the press release/advertisement on the team's official website (and note that LaForge's evil twin, Patrick Lagorge, is given credit for penning this one).

There's a story in the Journal today on the reaction, which is basically "Shut the fuck up and fix the goddamn hockey team, you motherfucking salesman."

Its ironic (in the Alanis Morissette sense) that when trying to explain what went wrong this year, he gets his own name wrong.

Does Patrick LaGorge have a Leonard Nimoy goatee? Just curious.

LaGorge... wasn't he the black buy engineer with the.. umm... braid thing on his eyes on Star Trek: TNG?
