Guess who's not back yet? You guessed it, Connor McDavid! It is day 21 without Connor. How are you guys feeling? I'm feeling okay, but I'm trying my best to forget about him to make the time go by faster. It works sometimes, but just when you're least expecting it, Connor skates right through my mind and sadness takes over my soul. I think it's safe to say that Connor McDavid's return will be on all of our Christmas lists this December. On my Christmas list, McDavid coming back healthy lies right in between a new car, and a fancy money clip. So there's your heads up for what I'm asking for, in case you wanted to surprise me.

Watching that new rink rise out of the ground downtown isn’t only a source of pride for citizens and fans of the Edmonton Oilers, it’s bumped the value of the franchise to $455 million, according to Forbes, which is more than double the $225 million the team was assessed at in 2011-12.

On Monday night, the Edmonton Oilers played the Washington Capitals, a game which I figured was sure to be an offensive extravaganza, featuring goals, goal and more goals. I decided to track defensive performance in two very specific ways to see how the Oilers defended against one of the game’s best offensive teams.
As it turned out, the answer was “extremely well” and the Caps were limited to just the one goal. That’s one more than the Oilers got, but as my primary focus was on the defence this is till going to be a pretty cheery piece.

Moral victories don't pay the bills. Final Score: 1-0 Capitals.

The Oilers begin their season-high five-game road trip in Washington tonight before stops in Carolina (Wednesday), Detroit (Friday), Pittsburgh (Saturday) and Toronto next Monday. The Oilers have played much better the past two weeks, and five games against the Eastern conference should result in at least five points for the Oilers.
In 2013/2014 the Oilers were 14-14-4 vs. the East. They were 15-14-3 last year and they are already 4-2 this year. The Oilers like playing Eastern teams and with two healthy scoring lines and better defensive zone coverage this should be a productive road trip.
