This is Todd McLellan's 2014-15 San Jose Sharks defense run through Rob Vollman's Player Usage Chart. As you can see, McLellan had a hard rain pairing to face the tough zone starts and competition, followed by four guys who shared the rest of the load evenly. Todd McLellan didn't bring Marc-Edouard Vlasic with him from San Jose, so what will he do with the Oilers blue?

The big news earlier today was Connor McDavid signing his entry level deal. It was a very easy negotiation. He gets the max deal, like every other #1 pick. As good as McDavid is going to be, he won't be the lead catalyst in their quest for better team defence. He, like all forwards, will play a part, but the Oilers defensive deficiencies need to be improved by the defencemen and, most importantly, the goalies.
Meet Cam Talbot. He'll arrive in Edmonton in late August and prepare for a battle with Ben Scrivens to win the starting job. He is excited about the opportunity.

For those of you that don't know, we hired an intern named Chris a few weeks back and we need your help evaluating him. On the night of the draft party (June 26th) we asked Chris to write an essay to explain why he's a good intern, and why he thinks he did a good job. The essay was due on Monday - it is now Friday.

In a move that surprises no one the Edmonton Oilers have signed Connor McDavid to his entry level contract. There is nothing else to say except to point and laugh at everyone who said he would "Lindros" the team. It goes without saying that I am beyond excited.
More to come...
