NYC: Bland and Boring compared to Edmonton

Interesting to note that the Edmonton Oilers have packed up and left Alberta to escape all the pressures and distractions that come with being the Western Conference champions with a week and a half layoff in the smallest city in the NHL. So, where did they go to escape all these distractions? Why, New York City, of course.

It's actually a pretty good idea. As the AP article notes, this allows the team to get used to the time change, as well as "the humid air and skate-stifling slush that passes as late-spring ice". (Love that line, by the way.)
