Training camp matters. It just matters less than we – and in some cases the players – think it does. Just consider what happened to Anton Lander and Will Acton last year.

This is the event you've been waiting for all summer long. The night when we are finally able to celebrate the precious' very first NHL game. Thanks to our friends at Cornerstone Insurance, the Pint, and United Cycle we've got a big night planned for you and what a night it will be.

Todd McLellan liked the play of a few players last night. He was impressed by Griffin Reinhart's ability to always make the right play. He liked Justin Schultz's play at EV, PP and on the PK, and was also impressed when Schultz uncharacteristically sped to the defence of Oscar Klefbom. McLellan wants this team to stand up for each other, and it was a step in the right direction.
However, McLellan went out of his way to point out one aspect his team must drastically improve.

Quiet and reliable is about as sexy and attention-grabbing as driving a minivan, so it’s no surprise to me a lot of fans of the Edmonton Oilers, if not the vast majority, were looking right past Griffin Reinhart and fixing their gaze on Darnell Nurse when training camp began.

It’s the day after game three of the preseason so now seems like as good a time as any to start reading too much into what we saw on the ice. Here are a few of the things I saw out there from two key members of the Oiler blueline. Join me in the comment section to tell me how little anything we observe means in September.
