Jujhar Khaira returned from injury this week, but the Bakersfield Condors couldn't get the offense going beyond a goal here or there. ZIyat Paigin finally returned to KHL action after a long layoff and the CHL and NCAA prospects were filling the net this week. Let's have a look. Photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved.

For most of this century, the Edmonton Oilers have had a terrible time in the procurement department. Early on, the club was drafting players the coach didn't seem to value (Jani Rita, Rob Schremp) and still later the drafting department stopped producing players who could dominate in the AHL. Add that to management's tendency to flush men like Jason Chimera and Kyle Brodziak just as they were ready to establish themselves, and it made for a vexing situation. Are there signs things could be getting better? (Photo of Anton Slepyshev by Mark Williams, all rights reserved).

We love HOME games; have Liquor Depot delivery in under an hour. Click, pick, sit back and watch the game. 

The Edmonton Oilers play the Dallas Stars tonight and can declare victory if they don't get scored on first. After a blazing start, the Oildrop have given it all back and stand at 9-8-1 for the season. They are still in a good spot, owing to the turtle race that is the Pacific Division. A win today and close the books on a 1-2-0 week and look ahead to Chicago, Colorado and Arizona twice in the next week.

Math experts tell me that we have to wait 20 games in order to begin to trust our suspicions—which means we are close to being able to express real concern about specific items. Up first on my list? Leon Draisaitl's 5x5 offense. (Photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved)
