No deal reached for Lindros

CP: No deal reached for Lindros

"Unless there is some unforseeable development the Oilers are out of the Lindros sweepstakes."

The OILERS? Oooiiilers? The Edmonton Oilers? The .... Oilers were considering Eric Lindros? Seriously? Wait, did I read that right? The OILERS? Umm, hold on, I think that said Eric Weinrich. No, hm, it said Lindros. It actually said Lindros. The small market team, the Oilers (that's the Edmonton Oilers of the NHL, just to be specific), were interested in acquiring the rights to Eric Lindros.

Huh?
