For NHL purposes, the Jets and Oilers started the same day. Winnipeg and Edmonton entered the NHL at the same time, and both clubs were boot stomped within an inch of their lives by the establishment. The Jets, in a real way, never did recover from that beating. The Oilers? Five years later they were pillaging the entire league and beating them senseless. Pray those days return, and this time maybe Winnipeg can join in the fun.

Peter Chiarelli delivered his first Oilers roster to Todd McLellan and the two men are through the Penticton tournament and into pre-season on the way to the final 23-man list. No real signs from management and their leanings either way but it's early days. How's it going so far?

It's fun days for Oilers fans, as the news churns out updates hourly on a long list of exceptional talents. Klefbom signs! followed Hall scores two! and of course there are heart attack moments like the Nuge getting hit with a puck by Cam Talbot. Take the temperature of the average Oilers fan and it's 98.6 with a smile—and that stands in stark contrast with fans of other NHL teams when it comes to McDavid in Edmonton.
