The Jeff Deslauriers experiment seems to have finally come to an end. The Oilers put Deslauriers on waivers today, and if no one claims him by noon EST tomorrow, he'll be sent down to Oklahoma City. Deslauriers was drafted 31st overall by the Oilers in June of 2002, and in his eight years with the Oilers he posted a record of 20-31-7 with a 3.27 GAA and .901 SV%.

The Oilers blew into Chicago riding a six-game losing streak, but they get a bit of a break as Marian Hossa is out due to injury. The defending champs are 6-4-1 so far, but right now they don't look anywhere near the team that hoisted the Stanley Cup in June.

The game many of us grew up playing or watching will once again have to face one of its deepest and darkest secrets now that Graham James is back in Canada. This time around, I hope the hockey world embraces the victims and sets the stage for other victims to come forward because the hockey world will support them too.

It started with Pat Price, then Mike Forbes, Don Nachbaur, Todd Strueby, Tom Gorrence, Mike Krushelnyski, Ken Hammond, Craig Redmond, Peter Eriksson, Reijo Ruotsalainen, Max Middendorf, Shaun Van Allen, David Haas, David Shaw, Dan Currie, Shjon Podein, Todd Marchant, Mikko Luoma, Brad Winchester, Erik Cole and now Kurtis Foster have all doned the #26 jersey.
But it is a different 26 that is haunting the Oilers tonight.

It is very early in the NHL season, but this morning the Oilers find themselves on a four game losing streak and sitting in 30th place. They have three games in hand on the Devils, and sit one point back of them, but I don't think any player thought they'd be in 30th six games into the season.
