Pretty much everyone expects that the Edmonton Oilers are going to trade Jeff Petry. He’s a pending unrestricted free agent on a bad team, and said bad team has never really seemed all that committed to the player.
It’ll be a shame if it happens, because he’s the best defenceman on the team, and the kind of things he does when he's at his best were on full display in Friday’s 5-2 victory over Chicago.

Who the hell saw that coming? Final Score: 5-2 Oilers.

Taylor Hall's production through the first half of the season has not been close to how he produced the previous two years. In 2013 and 2014 he had 130 points in 120 games. He produced the 6th most points in the entire NHL during that span, but so far this season he has struggled.
He has 25 points in 35 games thus far, but Hall told me that his health is not the reason his numbers have dipped.

It’s about time the Edmonton Oilers took a serious look at how they draft and develop players even if it might be a case of better late than never when it comes to Nail Yakupov.
