One of Edmonton’s big question marks for next season is goaltending. The Oilers have been badly let down by their goaltenders this year, and the expectation is that general manager Craig MacTavish will once more attempt to address the position this summer.

GDB 68.0: Rested and ready?

For the 19th time this season the Oilers will play after two or more days between games. Does more rest equate to more success? It does slightly.

The Oilers are 6-11-1 (33.3 winning%) when playing after two+ days without a game, they are 12-21-8 (29.2 W%) when playing with one day between games and they are 1-5-2 (12.5 W%) on the second night of back-to-back games.

If you go by Gary's loser-point system the Oilers have garnered slightly more possible points, not wins, when playing with one day between games compared to two plus days off, but overall more rest between games has helped the Oilers win four percent more.

The more promising news for fans still emotionally invested in the games, is that the Edmonton is 13-13-1 vs. the east as they try for their first win of this road trip in Pittsburgh.

There is no secret about who the first and second overall picks of the 2015 Draft will be. Connor McDavid, a true franchise talent, will go first overall. Jack Eichel, a legitimate first overall selection in most years, will go second.

If the Oilers end up with the third overall pick – a distinct possibility – what could the team do?
