The Oilers vs. the Hurricanes - a parable for our times?

There's something ironic in the matchup of teams for the final round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

You've gotta love this headline: Many Hurricanes have ties to Alberta

And the Hurricanes are currently trouncing the Oilers (leading them 2-0 in the series)! It kind of makes you think...

From a recent CBC report:

17 per cent of the region's oil production remains off-line because of last year's hurricanes, which damaged 167 offshore platforms and 183 pipelines. Some platforms were found as far as 100 kilometres from their original moorings.

Personally, I'm cheering for the Hurricanes. (And it has nothing to do with my participation in my office hockey pool - really!) ;-)

And while I have your attention, here's another link to ponder:
