On this week’s episode of 15 Minutes of Fame, Jim and Geoffrey discuss the Edmonton Oilers and their “let’s play for the first overall pick” style of hockey. They also talk about the new series HBO is showing following the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals up to the Winter Classic on January 1st.
