Even the best students can have a down period and that is most certainly the case for several Edmonton Oilers in 2014-15. The season isn't over, there is plenty that can be salvaged. It is All-Star weekend and that means a review of everything, from chemistry to, apparently Latin.

At some point over the next several weeks, the Edmonton Oilers will probably send away Jeff Petry to the highest bidder. The trade deadline is a time for rentals but Petry is a player who has far greater value because of his youth and perceived future value. He has a lot of miles left and has put in his time learning the NHL game. A smart team could end up trading rental price for a useful defender over a long period (should he sign). One team that has shown an ability to make intelligent seasons over recent months: The Montreal Canadiens.

The Oilers are not on the rise but also possess some of the best young talent in the game. How do the Oilers get to the place where January games matter?
