Tom Renney announced that Ales Hemsky could be out up to a month with a groin problem, and he will meet with Steve Tambellini to discuss if they will call up a player, or if they will go with the current roster.
Linus Omark and Liam Reddox would seem like the most likely call ups, and when I spoke briefly with Steve Tambellini he said they will look at it closer and decide this week.

The Oilers last nine games have even those people with deep concerns about the team (people like me) smiling. There’s something great about watching the home team win, and it has led to surprising levels of optimism.

With what we've already seen from Taylor Hall just 26 games into his NHL career, can you imagine him not being a member of the Edmonton Oilers this season? Can you imagine him spending another season with the Windsor Spitfires? I can't. Neither can Ryan Whitney.

Oiler fans know that the 2010 draft looks like a watershed. Taylor Hall is already scoring goals in the best league on the planet, and that second round may live in infamy. Still deeper there are scorers and puck movers and goalies and they all seemingly have a lot of promise. Is this a mirage? When do troubles begin to appear for a draft class?

Two weeks ago the Blues were sitting in 4th spot in the Western Conference, eleven points ahead of the Edmonton Oilers. Fast forward to today, and the Blues have hit the skids, losers of four in a row, while the Oilers have won five of seven and with a regulation win tonight they would suddenly trail the Blues by three points. Injuries to TJ Oshie and David Perron have hurt the Blues, and while Ales Hemsky will sit out his third game with a sore groin, the Oilers have won two straight without their assistant captain.
