During the first intermission of game three Don Cherry brought up an interesting angle when discussing the crushing Aaron Rome hit on Nathan Horton. Clearly Rome hit him late, and he'll likely get suspended, although with the NHL's track record you never know. Grapes brought up an idea that I think has some merit.

It is much easier being tough on the Internet than it is being a tough guy in the NHL, and while I've always respected the guys who are willing to throw down on a regular basis and risk getting KO'ed, all arrows point to the Oilers making a massive overhaul in their toughness department.

If you don't see this picture in three weeks then I'd be very surprised, and you should be disappointed. I've said since March the Oilers should draft Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and after speaking with many scouts the past month on my show and via text, there is no doubt in my mind he is they guy they should, and will, call on June 24th.

Doug Weight officially retired from the NHL last Thursday, and he joined Ryan Rishaug and I on my show last week to talk look back on his career, his new gig with the Islanders and why Edmonton meant so much to him.

The Oilers are one month away from announcing their second consecutive first overall draft pick, but after that pick will they realistically be any closer to making the playoffs for the first time in six years? Another first overall pick will likely give the Oilers another solid prospect in the system, but a playoff appearance shouldn't, and likely won't, rest on his shoulders regardless of who they take on June 24th.
Can the Oilers go from 30th to a playoff spot? Surprisingly it might not be that far-fetched.
