With only 2 games remaining in the Oilers dismal season, Tom Renney is certain that his club will bounce back after their debacle against the Flames 48 hours ago. However, the Head Coach is now looking forward to next year; and he has made it quite clear that success begins now and continues in the off season. Despite having clenched 30th overall for the second straight year, it is very obvious and promising that the Oilers will improve.
Tonight the fans of Oil Country will get a chance to watch their squad play their final game of the season at Rexall Place; and also bid fare-well to anthem singer Paul Lorieau.
"The anthem is a tradition, and the music has to be respected. If you're going to take it on and modify it because of your own vocal shortcomings, you should be singing something else." Paul Lorieau.
Since joining the club 1981, singer Paul Lorieau will sing his very last anthem tonight at Rexall Place. Mr. Lorieau, is known for classic black tuxes and accapella style. Most importantly, he will be remembered for his consistent, flaw-less performances.
"When I sing, something special happens, which makes it impossible to repeat the anthem in any way, shape, or form. Every one is different."
Fare-well Mr. Paul Lorieau
