There are things about Edmonton you can only tell by living here. There's old money here you'll never find by looking for signs of extravagance, there's a tremendous sense of charity that can be overwhelming if you're in need of it, and there's a pride and entrepreneurial spirit that likely comes from isolation and independence. And hockey fans like their defensemen tough, edgy and with a max effort. Little wonder Steve Staios flourished in the Capital.

The day Edmonton drafted Mitchell Moroz, the Oilers were absolutely addressing need. Moroz--a big, tough winger who can skate and arrive in ill humor consistently--instantly moved to the top of the list of 'junior forwards other teams don't want to play against' in the organization. One year later, Moroz appears to be on the verge of a long awaited move up the depth chart to a skill line and offensive opportunity.
