One year ago, the Edmonton Oilers graduated an enormous number of young men to pro hockey. The NHL kids (Hall, Paajarvi, Eberle) were joined by an exceptional group in Oklahoma City (led by Linus Omark and Teemu Hartikainen). This season there's more excitement in store. Can this year's prospects come close to the quality and depth of the 2010 group?

The best part of my summer is the annual road trip with the family. Ten years ago the music of the trip was Fred Penner and "are we there yet?" but these days it's a trip through the lush rock and roll of my childhood. Who knew?

The Andrew Cogliano trade very likely marks the end of activity for the Edmonton Oilers this summer. A tweak there, a tuck here, but it's pretty much done. If Ty Conklin calls, maybe they'll answer the phone. However, it looks like the Oilers have mined this summer's diamond mine and we can begin to speculate about 2011-12.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is a ridiculous talent. However, there's more than quick hands and a high hockey IQ when it comes to Burnaby Ryan.

We're at a point in the free agent season where teams are either set or almost there. A few stragglers will sign, but it's on to arbitration and then we'll see you at camp for most of the league's 30 teams. Do the Edmonton Oilers have any business to finish? Are there any UFA's who could help?
