"It's an amazing place, a huge part of hockey history and it probably housed some of the best teams and some of the best players that ever played the game. It's a very special place, I spent close to nine years here, the core of my career, and what I was built into as a player, on the ice, a lot of it was here and due to a lot of people from here." -- former Edmonton Oilers captain Doug Weight
EDMONTON -- For years, an office door in the Edmonton Oilers dressing room stood as a barometer of success, as important to some as the championship banners hanging from the rafters at Rexall Place, originally Northlands Coliseum.
The thick, steel door was not in a public area of the arena, but most in Edmonton knew it existed. Those with access to the dressing room often would inspect it closely.
