Whether you're killing time at work, or sitting on your couch in your Ironman pyjamas, the mailbag is here to help you kill off a little bit of your Monday. Whether that time killed is company time, or time killed until it's socially acceptable to drink - we don't care - we just care that you're here. Of course, by "we", I totally mean "me." Thank you. If you have a question for the mailbag, you can email me or hit me up on Twitter. Until then, I present another edition of the Mailbag.

Well, nobody’s going to say Anton Lander didn’t get a fair crack at the NHL. He had six shots, four hits and won 69 percent of his faceoffs in his latest one-game call-up, so naturally the Edmonton Oilers – loaded to the gills with centres who do all that stuff – shipped him off to the farm moments after the end of that game.

It was point night for former Oilers (as if you didn't see that coming), but the Oilers were able to pull out a win. Wait... no they weren't. They gave up a 3 goal lead, and lost in the shootout. Final Score: 6-5 Stars in SO.

For an Oilers fan, Dallas is about great joy (Joseph and Marchant) and great pain (Mike Keane scores two middle frame heartbreak '99 and Mike freaking Modano). These long years of this century have beaten down the rivalry but today two teams trying to chase glory to match their history meet on Rexall ice.

One of my favorite things as a fan is to see a long shot arrive in the NHL. Brandon Davidson was a long shots long shot and yet he did in fact play in his first NHL game this year. His story is an inspiration on several levels.
