On the weekend I had a chance (along with Paul Almeida) to talk with Paul and Griffin Reinhart. It was mere hours after the trade that brought Griffin to the Oilers and both men were pleased with the opportunity.

The Edmonton Oilers announced on Monday that they had issues qualifying offers to three of their restricted free agents. Receiving offers were defencemen Justin Schultz and Brandon Davidson, along with right wing Tyler Pitlick.
Not receiving offers: Apparently, everyone else.

After months of anticipation and waiting patiently by the calendar the Oilers finally drafted Connor McDavid first overall on Friday, June 26th. To celebrate, we packed the Pint Downtown with as many Nation citizens as we could possibly fit before the fire marshall would shut us down. The result? A hell of a night.

It's the first McDavid Monday of the new era and we couldn't be more excited! All I want to do is read about him, gaze upon him, and kill as much work related time as possible. Enter the Mailbag. Want to be a part of it? Just email it to me at email@example.com or hit me up on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk. As a thank you, I'll send everyone that submits a question a sticker package from the Nation. Questions don't all have to be Oilers related, so be creative.

The summer has quietly arrived. The weather is nice, people are looking for things to do, and unfortunately, watching hockey isn't one of their options. We've got lots of off-season stuff to talk about, but no games to watch. Of course, that's a first world problem; there are much more unfortunate things out there -- such as the thousands of Canadian families who aren't able to afford to eat, especially in the months after holiday donations dry up.
Enter Five Hole For Food; an organization that aims to solve the latter via a solution for the former.
