FOREWORD

BY DYLAN STROME

Ryan was flying from Toronto to Chicago, I was flying from Arizona to Chicago. We were on the plane at the same time.

As soon as I landed I saw he messaged me, "Text me when you land."

I didn't even check Twitter, I just responded, "I landed."

He called me right away, as soon as I had touched the ground, and he just told me he got traded. Then I checked Twitter and obviously, it was right there, the first thing I saw was that.

It was kind of my first reaction, he's joked with me before that he got traded, so I needed to make sure on Twitter that it was actually true.

He was over the moon and excited to be an Oiler. He was very excited and I was very excited for him. The opportunity he's going to get, how good Edmonton is and how good the players are, and obviously a pretty special player he gets to play with, it's pretty cool.
