Sean Monahan is likely, at some point, to be a very good NHL player.
He wasn’t one last season. And if Leon Draisaitl has a rookie campaign comparable to Monahan’s, the Oilers will be in serious trouble.

This afternoon, Wanye and I locked ourselves in the war room at Nation HQ and went through over 50 photoshop entries to come up with the finalists. The sad part about it all is that we were only able to choose 6 finalists. So many of you had great entries that Wanye and I almost blew up in fisticuffs over who would make the final six. After many laughs and heated debates, here are your finalists.

With all due respect to Laurent Brossoit, Frans Tuohimaa, Tyler Bunz, Zach Nagelvoort and Keven Bouchard, the Edmonton Oilers don’t have a blue chip goalie prospect.
I’m not sure that it matters.

It’s been obvious for some time now the Edmonton Oilers intend to start training camp, and likely the 2014-15 season, with rookie Leon Draisaitl sitting in one of the top three positions on the team depth chart at centre.

Boyd Gordon will be back, Matt Hendricks too, but the Edmonton Oilers are going to need to stretch a few forwards this winter. Many of the penalty-killers from a year ago (forward division) are gone, leaving a gap and an opportunity.
