Jujhar Khaira has been in the NHL for a few days, and he (along with other Condors turned Oilers) may have some company from Bakersfield in the coming days. With Teddy Purcell and Justin Schultz traded, Edmonton could call up some help before their flight to Buffalo for a game on Tuesday (day after deadline). Who is hot, and how hot are they? You might be surprised.

The first time I saw Rexall in hockey season, I got goose bumps. I sat down and seconds later Paul Coffey flew by, looking like he was shot out of a cannon, Wayne Gretzky passed to the only open ice and timed it so Jari Kurri could skate in and grab it—it was music. Today, on the same ice that housed Allan Hamilton, Jim Harrison, Jacques Plante, Norm Ullman, 99, Messier, Kurri, Coffey, Fuhr, Anderson, Lowe, Smyth, Weight, Guerin, Pronger, Hall and the others, we also say goodbye to the grandest opponent we have ever known—the New York Islanders. Those were times we had, ladies and men.

The Edmonton Oilers made three transactions today, and the team looks a little different on paper as they prepare for the final stretch. The 50-man list got a haircut, and we have more clues about who is staying, and who is heading out.

The Edmonton Oilers are in California and word just a few minutes ago has the club sitting Teddy Purcell. And there's more!

The Edmonton Oilers recalled Jujhar Khaira today, he will join them in Los Angeles—driving distance from Bakersfield to LA is 180 kilometres, and no worries about the busy LAX. For Khaira, his skills match some of the Oilers needs, and he could draw in as a center—something Anton Lander has been unable to do for much of the season in Edmonton.
