Although the Oilers are once again suffering through a lost season, there are some things that can be gained. Among the most important things to watch in the season's final 30 games? The progress of Jeff Petry.

Teemu Hartikainen got the call today, along with Lennart Petrell and Taylor Chorney. The big Finn can play either wing and could be one of the young wingers in line for increased playing time if and when Ales Hemsky is sent away.

The January story for the Edmonton Oilers is twofold: injuries have once again taken their toll, and the remaining veterans can't hold back the water.

This is Miro Satan. Darcy Regier once said “with young players there’s a window of opportunity, especially ones with skill. You don’t know if you’ll be able to help them find the switch in time before the window closes. Some make it, some don’t … some just squeeze through and that’s the game we all play”. The Oilers grew impatient with him and sent him away, and Satan's window flew open in Buffalo and he laid waste to NHL goalies for a decade.

Ladislav Smid is one of the more valuable players on Edmonton's blue line these days. It's interesting to see how much coach Renney relies on him and the situations Smid gets the most work. It's also interesting to see how much Andy Sutton plays during a game.
