Last year, we started a new tradition around these parts. Since no one will let us vote for the actual NHL Awards (thanks PWHA) we decided to take matters into our hands and created an award show for the ages, and I need your help. We need nominees for our award categories, and that's where you come in.

My friends, it's once again time to put yourself in Peter Chiarelli's spot and make decisions for the Edmonton Oilers based on what you think would be best for the team. This week, we're diving into fantasy land to determine whether you would choose to sign Milan Lucic or Kyle Okposo if you were handed the keys to the Oilers' panel van.

Monday Mailbag - Last Competent Defence?

May 30 2016 07:00AM


Remember last weekend? Remember how good it felt to not have to go into work on Monday after you spent the past couple days binge drinking and rolling in your own filth? Good times. Thanks for nothing, this week's Monday! Now we're all back to our jobs and trying to kill enough company time to last until next Monday. Luckily, this week's Mailbag is a hefty read and should kill enough time to get you to your first coffee/smoke break. Hopefully.
