Those topics plus the WHL playoffs and World Hockey Championships are explored today with Corey Graham, Scott Cullen, Jim Byers and others.

The finished product of this Edmonton Oiler rebuild should last a decade and receive all kinds of awards. Sooner or later, you need to edit the movie and have the premiere.

As much as we love Jordan Eberle and as patriotic as we are about Canada, Oiler fans would prefer the young man not follow in the footsteps of Captain Canada.

History tells us that a centre, D-man or goalie can have a bigger impact on winning than a winger. It's not to say you don't need solid wingers to win, but a dominant centre will usually have more of an impact than a dominant winger.
Last night I chatted with a scout who's been around the NHL for over 20 years and asked him about the centre/winger debate and if the Oilers should/could take Nail Yakupov's teammate Alex Galchenyuk instead.
