Can you believe the regular season starts next week? With the pre-season in full swing it seems like the days are flying past but it's still not fast enough. I want regular season McDavid and I want him now. Despite my impatience there are no time machines on Amazon. We have to act like adults and wait. Luckily the Mailbag is here to kill some company time and get you a few minutes closer to McDavid. I always need questions so if you have something to ask you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit me up on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk.

Darnell Nurse and an impressive group of prospects remain in training camp for the Edmonton Oilers, while a considerable number are now assigned to Bakersfield. Who dominated performances among prospects this week? It's a long list.

Anton Slepyshev has been very good in training camp. On merit, if training camp were a blank slate and all that we had to assess these players, he would probably have a job in the NHL when the Oilers wander into St. Louis on October 8.
Training camp, though, is not a blank slate, not the lone piece of information we have in assessing these players. That’s why October 8 will probably find Slepyshev in California, getting ready to play against the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Among the Oilers cuts last night were four players who found the waiver wire this morning. NHL prospects and suspects who are trying to make the NHL as regulars only get so many training camps to show their stuff, and Brad Hunt, Tyler Pitlick, Andrew Miller and Ryan Hamilton just lost them one. How far is the gap between Tyler Pitlick and Rob Klinkhammer?
